* CasualHighDrop: Police Officers Highsmith and Danson (played by Creator/SamuelLJackson and Wrestling/DwayneJohnson respectively) attempt this. At one point while they are pursuing suspects on foot in which they are on the roof of an eight story building, they find the suspects going down a set of fire escape stairs. Instead of going down the stairs, one of the officers says they should jump off the building onto an awning below to beat them to ground. However as RealityEnsues, they end up missing the awning (which even then wouldn't have helped as (the [[JustForFun/TropesExaminedByTheMythBusters Mythbusters have shown by testing this trope in the past]]) they would have received severe injuries which would have prevented them from continuing their pursuit anyway) and died on impact.

* CreativeClosingCredits: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yBfWz2bSOQ The end credits]] detail how [[spoiler: Ponzi Schemes work, how the 2008 TARP bailout mostly went to corporations instead of people and how the wealth inequality betwwen the rich and the poor rose over the years.]] It's rendered HilariousInHindsight when director Adam [=McKay=] went on to direct ''Film/TheBigShort'', a movie about [[spoiler:what lead to the 2008 financial crisis]].

* AnAesop: Just because corporations can get away with rampant greed legally doesn't make it okay. Also, being a real cop doesn't mean you get to act like a rouge CowboyCop.

** Then Allen goes on to explain in length how him and his school of tuna, having acquired a taste for lion, would proceed to establish a beachhead and construct some breathing apparatus to hunt Terry's pride on land.
-->'''Allen''': You just lost at your own game, you're outgunned and outmanned. ''(beat)'' [[LampshadeHanging Did that go the way you thought it was gonna go? Nope]].

-->'''Terry''': If we were in the wild, I would attack you. Even if you weren't in my food chain, I would go out of my way to attack you. If I were a lion and you were a tuna, I would swim out in the middle of the ocean and freakin' eat you! And then I'd bang your tuna girlfriend.\\

%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Both Hoitz and Gamble are cops who are interested in upholding the law, but they're both kind of assholes. Hoitz has a short temper and is prone to snapping at people, while Gamble is emotionally abusive to his wife.
