* MisaimedFandom: Matt Stone wasn't happy when the movie deceived moviegoers into thinking he favored Moore's causes. This is the reason for the aforementioned TakeThat against Moore in ''Team America''.

* SignatureScene: Music/MarilynManson's interview, widely recognized as the moment that the general public saw him for the intelligent, articular man he was underneath his dark and edgy stage persona and besides the shock-rock bogeyman that MoralGuardians had made him out to be.

*** That's only the beginning. It gets even worse once we find out the details of everything that led to the shooting - a boy found a gun in his drug dealer uncle's house, decided to take it to school, and accidentally shot Kayla in the middle of class. Evidently, the school's fate: closed down in 2002, demolished seven years later. It's not a cover-up.

** The biggest TearJerker of the whole film? Aside from the small victory of getting K-Mart to stop stocking handgun ammunition on their shelves, the film ended up accomplishing ''[[AllForNothing nothing.]]'' Nearly two decades after the Columbine Massacre, public gun massacres in America (whether in schools, cinemas or crowded public places) remain so common as to be almost ''mundane,'' the NRA continue to insist that [[LackOfEmpathy their right to own any lethal weapons their want is more important than other people's right to not be murdered]] and that the only way to end the mindless slaughter is to [[InsaneTrollLogic arm everyone in the country]], and politicians either lack the courage to decisively oppose them, or actively ''support'' them. And with every year the bodies pile higher...

* CommonKnowledge: Trey Parker and Matt Stone had nothing to do with the animated segment "A Brief History of the United States of America". However, many viewers mistook it for their creation because it immediately followed Matt Stone's interview and was ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark''-esque in animation style and vocals. Annoyed by this, the duo killed off Michael Moore in ''WesternAnimation/TeamAmericaWorldPolice''.

* OvershadowedByControversy: This is a very polarizing movie, especially among right wing people who don't like it for the overall criticism on gun ownership and the fact that Creator/MichaelMoore made it. That said, even some left wing people who favor gun control have mixed feelings about some scenes in the film. However, it must be said that the movie is more than just a "guns are bad" propaganda flick. Moore debunks some common theories anti-gun activists have about guns too. For instance, he shows that there are other countries who also have a violent past and the right to bare arms too, yet where the amount of gun-related accidents and murders is far lower in comparison to the USA. The movie made Moore the most recognizable documentary maker on Earth, but this also made it more difficult for him to go out and film somewhere without immediately being stopped by guards who recognize him. It can even be argued whether the film actually did his career any good. On one hand his next movies attracted large crowds of curious people and supporters, on the other hand many Michael Moore haters refuse to watch his next films just because he made them. Which is unfortunate as his movies do address interesting topics and arguments that are open for debate.
