* UnsympatheticComedyProtagonist: One of the most common complaints critics had against the movie was that they found Carson to be extremely arrogant and didn't manage to unlikable. Although some people found it to make his character even better so it isn't [[TropesAreNotBad that bad]].

* DownerEnding: [[spoiler: It's no secret that Carson dies in the end, but he also doesn't get into the university of his dreams (and the only one he applied to), the entire school hates him, his literary magazine failed miserably, and he never got to make it out of Clover.]]

At least he is much less impulsive and cynical after he died.]]



* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:The entire plot of the movie is this, at least for Carson - he finally manages to write a story of his own and complete his literary magazine, but he dies before anyone can read it.]]

** "Nixon is so crooked, he have to screw his boots on!"
* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:The entire plot of the movie is this, at least for Carson - he finally manages to write a story of his own and complete his literary magazine, but he dies before anyone can read it. It differs from a ShootTheShaggyDog because it is implied in the movie that his death is a good thing for everyone especially himself.]]
