* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The part where Veronica and (especially) Dante berate each other over their sex lives was played for laughs in this movie. However, in ''Film/ChasingAmy'', Holden has a similar reaction to Alyssa when he finds out about her previous sexual experiences, which was played entirely for drama and is why their relationship ultimately didn't work out. And that was in turn based off of [[RealitySubtext Kevin Smith and Joey Lauren Adams' relationship]].

Added DiffLines:

* WriterCopOut: The original ending where Dante gets killed by an armed robber. Kevin Smith openly admitted that he only did that because he had no idea how to wrap up the story and was happy to have been talked into cutting it.

** Randall's monologue on the destruction of the second Death Star in ReturnOfTheJedi included the statement that storm troopers don't know jack about installing toilet mains. Then ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' gives us Finn, a storm trooper who worked on Starkiller Base (the SpiritualSuccessor to the Death Star) in sanitation. This means there might be at least one storm trooper who knows how to install a toilet main after all.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: The movie is very much a product of TheNineties. There's the fashion (flannel shirts, backwards baseball caps, and Dock Martin boots), the music (Music/AliceInChains and Music/SoulAsylum especially), and the prominent VHS rental store as a prominent set piece, to say nothing of characters using a payphone to call outside their home.

%%* SeinfeldIsUnfunny* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Many movies have come along since then, depicting 20-somethings sitting around, slacking off, and talking about sex and pop culture is somewhat of a cliche' now. At the time of the making of this movie, it was much more novel.

* WhatTheHellHero: Dante and Randal do this to each other at the end of the movie.

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Dante is supposed to be seen as in the wrong for constantly blaming Randal for most of his problems, but his complaints aren't unjustified. While the NoodleIncident at the funeral was shown to not be Randal's fault (he was accidentally pushed onto the casket), he had no business being there since he didn't know Julie. He got Dante fined for selling cigarettes to a minor, and there was never any indication that he'd pay Dante back for the incident. While Randal didn't know that Dante was reconsidering on [[spoiler: breaking up with Veronica]], he still had no business telling her.

* {{Wangst}}: {{Lampshaded}}. Dante does this all the time, to the point where Caitlin comes to visit him specifically because she knows he's probably spent the whole day agonizing over the wedding announcement. Veronica even briefly mentions that the ''only'' reason he's like this is that he refuses to get over Caitlin, a girl he dated in ''high school'' and was never faithful to him. This ends up being the first thing Randal eventually blows up at him for.
