* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: Double Subverted. [[spoiler:When Sam and Suzie are on the sailboat at the end, he is GenreSavvy enough to expect the drink to be poisoned. He relaxes when Suzie points out that she would be an idiot to try something like that, since she can't pilot the boat and they're all out in the middle of nowhere. Turns out that it is in fact poisoned, and Suzie is a genius with enough boating skills to be perfectly capable of piloting it by herself. Still, this is not what kills Sam -- Suzie then releases one of the booms to knock him into the water to drown.]]

* TamperingWithFoodAndDrink: Double Subverted. [[spoiler:When Sam When after all the backstabbing between the conspirators only a final guy and Suzie girl are on left, the sailboat at the end, he guy is GenreSavvy smart enough to expect the drink he's offered to be poisoned. He relaxes poisoned, but is assured when Suzie points out the girl tells him that she would be an idiot to try something like that, since she can't it because he's the only one who can pilot the boat and sailboat they're all out in the middle of nowhere. Turns out that it on back to shore. This is in fact a lie--the drink is indeed poisoned, and Suzie the girl is a genius with enough boating skills much smarter than she made herself out to be. Just to be perfectly capable of piloting it by herself. Still, this is not what kills Sam -- Suzie then sure, she releases one of the booms to knock him into the water to drown.]]

* BigBad: Sam Lombardo and Kelly Van Ryan. Though, in truth [[spoiler:Suzie]] is the true BigBad here, having manipulated the other BigBads and orchestrated the plot.

* AmoralAttorney: Ken Bowden is not above cheating workers' comp by wearing a neck brace in public without an actual neck injury. Sandra Van Ryan's own attorney (played by RobertWagner) is hinted to be one, though he gets beat down by the judge when he attempts to intervene in the suddenly disintegrating case after Suzie cracks on the stand.

** Plot of first film: Rich girl Kelly Van Ryan (Denise Richards) flirts with Sam Lombardo (Mat Dillon), her guidance councellor, until at last he invites her into his house in private. Afterwards, she runs off in tears, then accuses him of rape. He claims she's lying, and given her earlier behavior, it looks like it'll be impossible to prove her case. Suddenly, another victim, Suzie (Neve Campbell), is found and is willing to testify. Then [[spoiler:Suzie cracks on the stand and admits she's lying, making the audience think that both girls are working together to screw Sam over. Sam gets off the hook, then successfully sues Sandra Van Ryan, Kelly's mom. Then it turns out that the girls were both working with Sam to trick the mom into doing something stupid so that he could sue her and they could split the money three ways. Then Sam has to kill Suzie because she was acting like a total spazz and might have spilled the beans. Ray Duquette (Kevin Bacon), a cop who has been investigating this whole thing, assaults Kelly, who shoots him in the shoulder, forcing him to shoot and kill her. It later turns out that he murdered her in cold blood, and shot himself in the shoulder. His superiors are suspicious of him, as something similar happened with him a while ago, and fire him. Then it turns out that he and Sam were working together to frame Kelly for Suzie's murder, and split the money two ways -- except Ray decided to kill Kelly and pretend it was self-defense. Then it turns out that Sam and Suzie were working together to [[FakingTheDead fake Suzie's murder]] and betray Ray because Ray had killed one of Suzie's friends before the movie even started. Then it turns out that Suzie never had any intention of sharing the money with Sam, and kills him. She also has genius-level intelligence. Then it turns out that Ken Bowden (Bill Murray) was working with Suzie all this time. Then it turns out that the whole thing was just an excuse to film a movie with Denise Richards and Neve Campbell making out... twice]].
