* AntiHero: Joe Hallenbeck is a type III with some Type V moments. Aside from being a [[SelfDeprecation self loathing]], [[TheCynic pessimistic]], [[SmokingIsCool chain smoking]], borderline [[SirSwearsALot misogy]][[PoliticallyIncorrectHero nistic]] bastard ("...and then some."), he also gives a [[BadAssBoast sinister death threat]] to two of the badguys. He doesn't lie, something the badguys learnt the hard way. Still, compared to the people he's fighting, he's [[TitleDrop 'The Last Boy Scout']]

* ClosetShuffle: Hallenback is introduced as the cuckolded husband... and as a cop, he correctly sniffs out that the other guy is hiding in the closet and nearly shoots him.
* ConcertClimax: The climax takes place during a big American Football game (possibly the Super Bowl). A US Senator is the target; slight twist, in that he's a corrupt senator who Macrone is targeting because he asked for too much bribe money.



* ContinuityNod: When Joe & Jimmy go to Joe's place to rest for the evening, Darian is watching ''Film/LethalWeapon'' (the infamous torture scene), a movie also written by Creator/ShaneBlack.

While Jimmy teams up with Joe to solve her murder, [[AngstWhatAngst he never seems all that broken up over it]].about her death]] and the snarky, bantering tone of the rest of the film seems incongruous at best in that light.



* EveryCarIsAPinto: A car falls upside down ''in a pool'' before exploding. Milo survives.



* FreshClue: This is how Joe Hallenbeck figures out that his wife is cheating on him:
-->"Oh, that's right. Sometimes you forget I'm a detective. See, there's all this steam in the shower like somebody was just in there. Only your hair's dry. So it must be somebody else we're talkin' about. A male somebody, because the toilet seat's up. Since he's not under the bed I figure you must have stuck him in the closet when you heard my key hit the lock a day early. So... who's the guy in the closet?"



* {{Gorn}}: Brutal moments punctuated by humor. There is a scene where Bruce Willis ''punches a guy's nose through his brain'' (said guy is a young Creator/KimCoates in a very early example of his career as a ChronicallyKilledActor). Also the infamous helicopter scene. Amazingly, the original screenplay by Creator/ShaneBlack is even bloodier, with Milo murdering women in snuff films that he directs on the side.

'''''The Last Boy Scout''''' is a 1991 action film, directed by Creator/TonyScott and written by Creator/ShaneBlack, starring Creator/BruceWillis as a former Secret Service agent, now working as a private detective, and Damon Wayans as a retired professional football player.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Shane Black's original script, by all accounts, is less humorous, more personal, and even more violent and cynical than the final film.
