* WhatAnIdiot: Michelle, the French bully, and Red, the BigBad, both call Hancock an asshole, and even after Hancock says that's his BerserkButton, they ''continue'' to press said button anyway, despite knowing [[FlyingBrick who Hancock is]], at least to an extent. Needless to say, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny they get their asses handed to them for it.]]

* TearJerker:
-->"Gotta wonder, though. What kind of bastard must I have been, that nobody was there to claim me? I mean, I'm... I'm not the most charming guy in the world, so I've been told, but... nobody?"

** The whole premise of the movie is pretty hilarious by itself, by anyone who was read or watched ''Manga/OnePunchMan'', as both Hancock and Saitama has similar backgrounds, albeit Saitama [[spoiler:got his powers by training really hard for three years, compared with Hancock, who is immortal]].

* WritersCannotDoMath : Hancock was released in 2008. The movie he and Mary were supposed to see "eighty years ago" was ''Frankenstein''. The Universal version was released [[Film/{{Frankenstein 1931}} in 1931]], and the previous version in 1910. So either Hancock is TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, the dialogue is rounding off the number of years they've been apart, the cinema had been playing the movie for a while, or no one bothered to look up the release date. Or, perhaps, TheyJustDidntCare.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Some critics claimed that the first half of the movie was the best part and that the rest of the film wasted the potential of that plot.

Others claim the second half could have been a groundbreaking superhero drama if developed fully rather than wasting the first half of the movie being funny. Possibly they're both right, and the movie just generally suffers from trying to be two different movies at the same time.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Many viewers think this about how the movie evolves. Critics even claim that the first half of the movie was the best part, as we're introduced to some lazy bum with superpowers.
** Considering the entire latter half of it relies on ContrivedCoincidence this is pretty reasonable. [[spoiler: in addition to Hancock and Mary being ancient beings comparable to gods or angels that become weaker when they're close]].
