Added DiffLines:

* ToiletHumor: Downplayed. One joke involves Hogarth slipping Mansly laxatives to get him off his back, and the scene is punctuated by Mansly's stomach gurgling nauseously as he waddles to the bathroom. A montage two scenes later shows that [[PottyEmergency it's effects lasted all day]], but we're spared having to see or hear anything grosser.

* FreezeFrameBonus: If you pause the movie at just the right second when Hogarth walks into the kitchen to find Kent sitting at the table holding a newspaper, one of the articles in the paper reads "STUDIO KEPT ALIVE BY OSMOSIS GREENLIGHT." WesternAnimation/OsmosisJones was the next movie produced by Creator/WarnerBros. Kinda sad when you realize it bombed...

Added DiffLines:

* HateAtFirstSight: Hogarth makes no effort to hide his disdain for Kent from the moment they meet. At first it's just because Kent talks down to him, calling him "scout," getting his name wrong and generally failing at being charming.

* FunbagAirbag: Happened chastely for a quarter of a second. Special Agent Kent Mansly knocks on the front door of the house, rehearsing his lines and staring at Hogarth's damaged BB gun when the door is opened by Hogarth's mom, Anne. Kent rapidly raises his head to talk to her and smacks it accidentally into the underside of her ample cleavage, resulting in a BOINNNG sound.

* AdaptedOut: The film follows Ted Hughes' novel's first half [[AdaptationExpansion and builds upon it]]. The second half of the book involves The Iron Giant and Hogarth attempting to deal with an enormous extraterrestrial, a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon]], who arrives on Earth because he's excited by [[HumansAreBastards man's war-song]], [[OhCrap and wants to join in]]. Arguably, [[TropesAreNotBad improves the film]].
