* CoversAlwaysLie: Somewhat; the DVD cover for the 2-Disc Special Edition features Davey throwing a snowball at the... well, [[SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou at you]], as Whitey, Eleanore, Jennifer and her (Jennifer's) son Austin, stand by him, smiling over it (except for Eleanore, who reacts as you'd expect her to). Jennifer is most certainly ''not'' shown smiling or otherwise approving of any of Davey's antics or {{Jerkass}} behavior in the actual film.

* InformedAttribute: Whitey's been coaching youth basketball for over fifty years, but the one time we see him in action, he's constantly out of breath and disoriented as if he's never stepped on a court in his life.

* CluelessAesop: The best way to get a selfish, destructive drunk to stop terrorizing innocent citizens is to [[spoiler: feel bad for his unwillingness to mourn his parents]].

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: As the ButtMonkey, Whitey was intentionally written to be as freaky as possible. So it comes off as hypocritical for the final lesson of the movie to involve Davey shaming the town and the audience by proxy for treating him as such.

** Throughout the awards, the town's behavior is appealing. When a tall kid with unnaturally thick underarm hair wins an award, the mayor loudly jokes that the kid should buy a weed-wacker for his pits. The town laughs along with this, showing that they have all the tact and maturity of middle-school delinquents.

* ProductPlacement: Easily one of the most notorious examples of this for an Adam Sander film. Not only do we get an entire subplot about Whitey's love of the shopping mall, introduced with his poem that name-drops every conceivable popular brand, as well as Davey's intervention from store logos who come to life, but none of the brands in question were asked to help fund the film for these plugs. To some, this came off as free advertisement, but it's actually pretty gutsy since that's illegal.
* ShirtlessScene: Davey has one during a basketball game. For a man who's supposed to look like [[HollywoodPudgy Adam Sandler]], he's pretty darn [[MrFanservice ripped]]. Keep in mind, Davey is an ''alcoholic'', and is pretty lazy. That combination isn't exactly an ideal workout regimen.
