* ArtisticLicenseAwards: At the end of the film, Kirk presents the Academy Award for Best Actor to [[spoiler: Tugg]]. However, the award for Best Actor is presented by the winner of Best ''Actress'' from the previous year. Possibly subverted, as it's AllThereInTheManual that Kirk actually ''has'' won an Oscar for Best Actress. Of course, that he was ever nominated for Best Actress at all comes back around to artistic license.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: Kevin has a mild case of this, as he admits to barely dating, and was hoping the movie would help him get laid.

Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: is intended to mock and deride all of Creator/BenStiller's friends who, unlike him, did VietnamWar movies back in TheEighties when they were all the rage and told him that the pre-production boot camp where they learned how to be plausible soldiers was a deeply spiritual experience.

** All over the place, you can almost see the actors as themselves in a less meta movie. All of the actors have elements of themselves, with only marginal changes (usually [[CompositeCharacter combining elements of other famous actors]]). Jeff Portnoy has Jack Black's personality, but stars in movies of the style popularized by Mike Myers or EddieMurphy. Arguably, Portnoy is a parody of what Black ''could'' end up becoming if he doesn't watch where he's cast. Creator/RobertDowneyJr is critically acclaimed and gets too into his job.
