* StrawmanPolitical: Parodied like everything else. Conspiracy Brother snaps "What have the Republicans ever done for black people?!" Smart Brother uses the "Lincoln was a Republican" rebuttal and seems ready to continue, only for Conspiracy Brother to interrupt with "Fine, fine, list two things Republicans have done for black people ''lately''!" While Conspiracy Brother ''is'' extremely paranoid, and will make assumptions as ridiculous as thinking that saying "Good Morning" is racist, that particular incident is revealed to actually be a legitimate, but poorly thought-through argument when one reviews history: while the majority of Republicans in the late 19th century were originally against slavery, the party's ideals concerning race changed considerably by the late 20th century: most Republicans(especially those in Southern states, like former Mississippi governor, J.P. Coleman) were very much against racial integration, and terrorist activity by the UsefulNotes/KuKluxKlan was heaviest in southern states that were overwhelmingly Republican, like Mississippi and Alabama. [[DumbassHasaPoint While Conspiracy Brother's allegations are often wild and thoughtless, they do sometimes stem from actual fact]], so the movie sort of [[PlayingWithATrope plays with this trope]].

** With Cadillacs, the 2 door models were Coupe while the 4 door were Sedan. The convertibles were two door but didn't use the Coupe part of the name, so the mistake is understandable.
