* NoBudget: Just how did they get this made for $600,000 anyway? It has the look of a much-bigger budgeted film.

* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Stevo's dad sends an application to '''Harvard''' for the kid. It is apparently common knowledge between them that Stevo cheated to get through his classes at the community college. Did we mention that it seems all his dad did was sign Stevo's name on an application? Anyway, Stevo is accepted.
** He attended the University of Utah and it was said in his monolog that he actually studied hard for all his exams. Since he actually made the grades and most parents end up doing most of the college application process for people his age, it wasn't much of an inversion from real life that he got into Harvard Law.

* AdultsAreUseless: Anyone above college age is portrayed as either [[DeepSouth rednecks]], or, well... [[AxCrazy Mark]].
** Or [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Bob's dad]]. Stevo's parents are also fairly passive through the whole movie and don't do much about their son being a punk, who's wasting his life.
