** "[She is/You are] my future wife." Why he never uses "fiancée" and "fiancé" is never explained in universe. [[note]]According to ''The Disaster Artist'' Tommy was insistent that there only be English in the movie, which apparently meant even French loanwords like 'fiancée' was out.[[/note]]

* InformedAttractiveness: Lisa is frequently referred to as being beautiful and sexy. This is particularly hilarious at the party, when a nameless character comments that "Lisa looks hot tonight," as his only line in the film.

There's even a nameless side character comments that whose only line in the movie is "Lisa looks hot tonight," as tonight." To make matters worse, he says it to a woman who's possibly his only line in the film.date/wife.

* NeverMyFault: Mark refuses to accept responsibility for [[spoiler:Johnny's suicide]], instead putting all the blame on Lisa. That, or he's just calling out Lisa on her part in it all while possibly [[HeelRealization feeling bad about his own]].

* BechdelTest: A complete and utter failure on multiple fronts. Even among the guys, nearly every conversation in the movie is about 1. The opposite gender. 2. Sex. and/or 3. Johnny. The primary exception is Chris-R demanding his money from Denny.

Added DiffLines:

*** The Flash game exaggerates this. Every store clerk in the game tells Johnny that he's their favorite customer. And when you walk into the coffee shop, there's a giant photo of Johnny with the caption "Customer of the Month." Dialogue from Johnny indicates that this isn't the first time.

Added DiffLines:

* AxCrazy: Chris-R, so much so that his actor actually ended up scaring the rest of the crew with his performance.


Added DiffLines:

* CaptainObvious: Characters have a tendency to randomly blurt out things that are blatantly obvious. For instance, Chris-R is flatly described as a dangerous man with a gun immediately after a scene that clearly displayed this without need for extra dialogue.
* CassandraTruth: A rather bizarre version. After Mark tells Johnny a story about a woman he knew who was viciously beaten to near-death by her abusive boyfriend, Johnny chuckles and responds "what a story!", as if he thinks Mark is lying.


Added DiffLines:

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: As part of the AskAStupidQuestion and CaptainObvious examples above, characters sometimes make statements that are utterly redundant. When Lisa asks if Johnny got a promotion, Johnny glumly responds "No" only for Lisa to inexplicably ask the same basic question again.


Added DiffLines:

* HaveIMentionedIAmSexuallyActiveToday: Mike seems to mention his relationship with Michelle at nearly every opportunity, at one point flatly saying "I have to go make out with Michelle" [[TooMuchInformation to his friends]] before leaving.


Added DiffLines:

* IceCreamKoan: A lot of the film's attempts at "poignant" dialogue come off as this, but the most stand out example is Johnny responding to Denny's question of what movie he wants to see with "don't plan too much, it may not come out right."
