* BillingDisplacement: In the ads, Jennette [=McCurdy=] and Ariana Grande are billed before Noah Crawford and Chris O'Neal, who play the main characters. On the film itself [=McCurdy=] receives top billing followed by Crawford and O'Neal (Grande receives [[AndStarring "With"]] billing).

Added DiffLines:

* JerkassHasAPoint: Swindell is a world-class dick if ever there was one, but he's correct on two counts: 1) It isn't his fault that Ben and Griffin didn't bother to look up the value of their card, and 2) they did sell the card legally. However, it could be argued that his actions fit the legal definition of "fraud" (conducting deliberate deception for the purpose of material gain), which would contradict his claim that he didn't break any laws.

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: The card shown in the film is a T206 Honus Wagner card (or at least a convincing recreation) and it really is as valuable as the film says: The card was produced by the American Tobacco Company in the early 1900s, but Wagner eventually refused to let them continue producing it, so only a small handful were actually made. There are only 57 known copies in existence.

* KarmaHoudini: The gang breaks into Swindell's shop, steals his hotel reservation, and leaves him on the hook for a thirty-five thousand dollar hotel room, not to mention coercing him into returning something that he purchased from them legally (if not ethically). Granted, he had it coming, but still, they're never made to actually answer for any of this ''and'' they pocket a cool 1.2 million on top of it. They also utterly destroy an unfortunate couple's wedding without consequence, though they do at least have the decency to pay back the couple by footing the bill for their honeymoon.

* XMeetsY: It's basically what you get if Nickelodeon made a ''MissionImpossible'' or ''OceansEleven'' film, with ''HomeAlone'' style gags.
