* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Billy Bob Thornton seems to be the only actor trying to play a real person, with everyone else either hamming it up as much as possible or stumbling along and trying to improvise.

* DesignatedHero: We're supposed to root for Shecky in his quest to become a comedian, despite every indication that he has no talent for it whatsoever.
* DesignatedVillain: While he's certainly a jerkass, the worst thing that Dickie actually does during the movie is punch out Shecky under the mistaken impression that he's trying to hit on Miss Australia. On top of that, some actually find his jokes kind of amusing in a "so over-the-top vulgar it's hilarious" way, as opposed to Shecky's flat-out awful jokes.
* HilariousInHindsight: Shecky's outrage at Dickie's shock humor becomes this when you consider that much of Creator/AdamSandler's own later material would make everything that Dickie says and does in this movie look downright tame.



* SpecialEffectsFailure: That gun Shecky uses to shoot Dickie in one scene. Man, that gun. It looks more like a toy accompanied by a cheesy-sounding gunshot effect.
