* AffablyEvil: All of the main characters except the AxeCrazy Barry.SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The film manages to make Toploader's "Dancing In The Moonlight" a musical highlight.

* MoralEventHorizon: [[spoiler: Barry blowing up Hassan when he bottles out and tries to surrender to a police officer who happens upon them. A fairly despicable act in itself, but Omar is especially outraged that Barry took away Hassan's choice to give his own life, and thus the posthumous rewards of his sacrifice.]]

* AcceptableReligiousTargets: Thoroughly deconstructed; writer/Director Chris Morris was intent on removing the terror of Jihadists by making them look as ridiculous as possible. So far no fatwas have been issued.

* YourMileageMayVary: Opinion is divided on the [[spoiler:numerous death scenes]]. Some viewers consider the sheep scene a CrowningMomentOfFunny, while others found it too tragic to laugh at. ** MoodDissonance I guess - some found the scene simultaneously hilarious and tragic, especially with [[spoiler: Faisal]] appearing to have the strongest grasp on humanity out of the whole group, despite his problems. But the completely inappropriate slapstick element was classic Morris.
