* ILoveTheDead: Things turned ''really strange'' when one of Bernie's lovers came to argue with him, and ended up having sex with him. And she claimed it was the best they'd ever had. And he was ''dead''.

* HoistByHisOwnPetard: This is exactly why Bernie winds up in the state he's in for most of the film; he tries to get the protagonists killed by the mob, but the mob winds up murdering ''him'' and making it look like a suicide.

* ItsAllAboutMe: The CentralTheme, PlayedForLaughs. [[IdiotPlot EVERY ONE]] of [[SlobsVersusSnobs Bernie's snob neigbors]] is [[ItsAllAboutMe so incredibly self-absorbed]] they fail to realize that him being oddly limp, quiet, and unresponsive means he is ''dead.'' [[OnlySaneMan Richard]] figures it out almost ''immediately'', as do the two beat cops who find him on the subway in the second movie. Larry's first reaction - [[NotSoDifferent who hopes to somehow climb to Bernie's social standing]] - is to complain about how his weekend has now been ruined.

* GroinAttack: Vito's stalking the boys through the house to the tune of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLR3lSrqlww Vissi d'arte]]", kicks Bernie's legs aside just as the aria reaches its climax(2:35), only for one of his heels to spring back into Vito's crotch.

* HoYay: Between Larry and Richard; it's noticed by Bernie. Also, a woman at Bernie's party acknowledges the ho yay in ''SherlockHolmes'', writing a book about him and Watson being 'secretly married'.
** It's also invoked in the original "suicide note" written by Bernie. He was originally going to claim that Larry stole the money ''so he could have a sex change operation''. And live with ''Richard'' as his lover.

** Not that Larry was much better; he was focusing on all the luxuries in Bernie's house. Richard was the only person in the ''entire movie''(besides ''the guy who killed him'') to figure it out without having it shoved in his face.

* AnimatedCreditsOpening: And a half-assed one at that. Not only is the animated of poor quality, but the animated studio didn't even bother to animate the crew's production titles! This creates for a really bad effect where the names are animated but the production titles are obviously added in.

Added DiffLines:

* ForeignCussWord: Just before Vito shoots Bernie, he says "cornuto", an Italian insult that implies the other person is a cuckold - and that the primary reason the hit was called in the first place was because Bernie was sleeping with a mobster's girlfriend.
