* ArtisticLicenseLaw: Averted for ''most'' of the film. Only during Lawrence's RousingSpeech to the High Court do we get a break from reality, and an appeal to emotion - that even fair monetary compensation can never be "just terms" for the acquisition of your cherished family home and its irreplaceable value. Unfortunately, that's taking things a little too literally. in RealLife money is basically regarded as the best form of compensation under the law.

** In one of the court scenes, the opposing lawyer refers to the Kerrigans' home as a 'dwelling' in a tone of voice that makes it clear that he's using the most courtroom-acceptable term he can think of for it. He then likens it to an eyesore. Darryl hotly rebuts that if there were more homes like his - and the opposing lawyer cuts him off and says that if there were, the jails would be full of people like his son. Darryl goes berserk and the judge tells the opposing lawyer to stop being a dick.

** Also, since Wayne's incarceration, guns. The one time we see Darryl get truly angry at a member of his beloved family is when Steve brandishes a gun.
