** Although the scene he has with Raddimus shows him playing this trope willingly. Since it's generally a run down of "The Game", [[spoiler: Mitch]] is too freaked out to talk.

Added DiffLines:

* DayInTheLife: With the exception of the party shown during the opening credits, the whole film takes place over the course of a single day, most of which is during a single dinner shift at the restaurant.
* DeadpanSnarker: Monty. A given, being that he's portrayed by Ryan Reynolds.


Added DiffLines:

* TheOner: A spectacular example, with the camera passing through the entire restaurant during the dinner rush, taking a few stops along the way to show each cast member at work. One of the featurettes on the DVD has the crew talking about how difficult the shot was to get right.


Added DiffLines:

** Nearly anyone who has ever worked in a restaurant can tell you that the characters in the film are very true to life, and has likely worked with a real-life equivalent to all of them.
