** Than again, Jessup has proven to have an INCREDIBLY inflated view of himself AND has just been exposed as a liar. One could just as easily argue that this is a straightforward VillainousBreakdown and Jessup is simply ranting his own self-justificantion for his actions.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Kiefer Sutherland doesn't quite get the hang of his character's Kentucky accent.

* HarsherInHindsight / HilariousInHindsight: Subverted with Jessup's remark about "taking cold showers until they elect some gal president"; HillaryClinton came close to winning the 2016 election, but lost the Electoral College to DonaldTrump.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Some people take Jessup's courtroom rant as a TakeThat towards the kind of [[StrawCharacter limousine liberals]] (who would never dream of joining the military themselves) who sit back and criticize armed might and the use of violence against while living their lives under the guard of those same people who they disdain. This really only works out of context, as Jessup is just as much of a {{hypocrite}} as they are.

* MisaimedFandom: The number of viewers who admire Jessup's MotiveRant is staggering. Sure, he's meant to have depth and isn't a CardCarryingVillain, but when he implies that marines shouldn't be accountable to the law, you're not supposed to ''agree'' with him.

Part of the problem is that the film doesn't include Kaffee's rebuttal from the play where he points out exactly what he's saying.
