** They are capable of ''taking'' a lot of damage; Harry gets run over by a taxi and is perfectly fine afterwards.

* FiveBadBand: The main adjusters: ** BigBad: Thompson, who has the highest authority of the adjusters we see and gives David the biggest emotional thrashing. ** TheDragon: Richardson, the adjuster who encounters David the most, apart from Harry. ** TheEvilGenius: Donaldson, who does research on David and Elise and explains things to Richardson. ** TheBrute: [=McCradey=], who is the most silent and provides an extra set of hands for Richardson. ** TheDarkChick: Harry Mitchell, the most empathetic of the adjusters, who even helps David in the third act. ** BiggerBad: The Chairman, who commands all the Adjusters.

** The New York county map showing David's loss shows the election results is dominated by red, which is the media's traditional designator for the Republican party. *** [[NewerThanTheyThink Which only dates back to the 2000 election.]] Perhaps the story takes place in an alternate universe where the colours have the same meaning as the rest of the world?

** TheChosenOne: Thompson later explains why: he's supposed to run for President later, and Elise a master choreographer. Four more election wins, starting from one encounter, will cause ''both'' of them to achieve their original dreams. By doing neither, and falling for each other, they forfeit their dreams and will live very minimal lives.

* BittersweetEnding: David and Elise can be together after the plan has been re-written to allow it, but they have to live the rest of their lives knowing that nobody has truly free will, that anything bad that happens to them or anyone they care about was deliberately written to be that way, and they can't tell anyone else about it for fear of being mind-wiped.

David Norris (Creator/MattDamon) is a charismatic Congressman whose campaign for Senate is derailed by a last-minute press leak. He practices his concession speech in the men's room, not realising that he is being overheard by Elise (EmilyBlunt), who is hiding from security in one of the stalls after crashing a wedding. She eventually owns up to being there, and the two have a romantically-charged conversation that ends in a passionate kiss. Afterwards, he abandons his planned speech for a heartfelt and impassioned tirade that propels him to the forefront of public consciousness, earning him strong support for the next Senate election.

* HollywoodHistory: We're told that letting humanity off the leash led to the collapse of the Roman Empire and the Dark Ages. The fact that parts of the world outside Europe were doing just fine, or no worse than usual, during that period is ignored. Then again, this might be intentional; David calls attention to Thompson's selective focus when he treats the present like it's all good (to which he can only counter with "could be worse"), so Thompson may be deliberately [[AccentuateTheNegative emphasizing the negative]].
