Added DiffLines:

* CounterpartComparison: Brendan is effectively a male Series/VeronicaMars. They're both teenage private eyes in a Southern California HighSchool-meets FilmNoir setting investigating the mysterious death of a loved one and making deals with the surprisingly powerful high school gangsters. Though Brendan is more [[ByronicHero brooding]] and less [[DeadpanSnarker snarky]] than Veronica.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}} / NarmCharm: The fact that the movie is a FilmNoir set it in a modern-era ''HighSchool'', complete with 30's slang, tends to make the film polarizing. Either people can't get past the concept or the setting and tropes enhances the film.

* FunnyMoments: The Pin's mother serving lunch to him and Brendan, a quite jarring reminder of how old they actually are.
