* UnintentionallyNotoriousCrime: Parker and Longbaugh are warned by Robin's gynecologist that the man they intend to blackmail has organised connections that won't be interested in negotiating. They don't listen, and even turn down Sarco's offer of a million dollars to hand over Robin and walk away then-and-there.

* AntiHero: Parker and Longbaugh are the main characters in this tale of BlackAndGrayMorality. They're almost completely immoral, but they PetTheDog just enough to avoid becoming villain protagonists.

* AntiHero: Parker and Longbaugh are the main characters in this tale of BlackAndGrayMorality. They're almost completely immoral, but they PetTheDog just might ''juuust'' qualify, seeing as he does have enough human decency to avoid becoming villain protagonists. insist that they abandon the kidnapping, and even seems to be motivated at least ''somewhat'' by a concern for Robin and the child's safety. Even Longbaugh, when confronted with [[spoiler:the emergency c-section, takes a moment to ensure that the doctor continues working to save the baby.]] Remember that the first thing we see the heroes do are being gigantic assholes to bar patrons, and one of the early scenes in the film has one of them compare homosexuals to Muslims (and vice versa) ''quite'' negatively..

''The Way of the Gun'' is the first film directed by screenwriter Christopher [=McQuarrie=], best known at the time for his Oscar-winning script for ''Film/TheUsualSuspects.'' After several unsuccessful attempts to get films off the ground, [=McQuarrie=] ultimately caved to studio pressure and wrote another underworld film, this time attempting to subvert the genre by pointedly exploring the characters' lack of morality. The film centers on two criminal low-lifes who, having chosen to live off the grid, stumble upon a way to strike it big: kidnap the young surrogate mother of a Mafia accountant's child.

* PantsPositiveSafety: Averted. This is a rare example of a movie that features main characters who are criminals that actually use proper holsters for their handguns. Longbaugh and Parker both use Galco Royal Guard holsters for Inside-the-Waistband carry.
