* AHandfulForAnEye: Hauser blinds Walker by pouring hot sauce into his eyes.



%%* BadassBookworm: Natalie Hagelhausen

* DeadpanSnarker: Hauser and Marsha - which makes sense, as they're played by John and Joan Cusack
* DownerEnding: Our heroes escape from Turaqistan on Yonica's plane, and start to talk about what they're going to do next [[spoiler: only for the camera to pull back, revealing a cruise missile following them]]. The scene then cuts to a announcement by the former Vice President declaring the events of the previous night an Ugigi terrorist attack, and declaing war on Ugigistan.

* SpiritualSequel: To GrossePointeBlank - John and Joan Cusack basically fill their exact same roles, Dan Aykroyd plays a supporting character in each movie, and both movies involve an assassin growing tired of his job considering quitting after falling in love

** Could qualify as a BittersweetEnding if you want to count [[spoiler: Houser's reunion with his long ago kidnapped daughter, who turns out to be Yonica, the sweet part among their implied death the bitter part.]]
** [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] you can assume it's an EarnYourHappyEnding, [[spoiler: given the quality of Tamerlane weapons being build by the lowest bidder, as shown in the climax]].
