* HilariousInHindsight: At one point, Julia tells Dale she's [[spoiler: a "squirter"]]. Fast forward to the 2015 release of ''LightNovel/{{Shimoneta}}''. Anna, made the series a SleeperHit for the exact same reason. Moreso, since she's [[UpToEleven a more extreme version]] of Julia.

* HilariousInHindsight: Julia was [[EvilIsSexy a hit]] [[DracoInLeatherPants with audiences]], despite her blatant sexual harassment of Dale[[note]]or, more likely, ''because of it'' since she's played by Creator/JenniferAniston[[/note]]. Fast forward to the 2015 release of ''LightNovel/{{Shimoneta}}'', which also became popular thanks to Anna's repeated [[BlackComedyRape sexual assaults]] [[UnluckyEverydude on Tanukichi]].

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: For all the [[ButtMonkey shit that they give Dale]] (and boy, do they), the sequel has several moments that show that Dale is TheHeart of their group, and that Nick and Kurt do actually care about him:
** When Stacy and the triplets visit Dale at the guys' new warehouse near the beginning of the movie, we see Nick and Kurt both kiss Stacy on the cheek, and each of the guys holds one of the triplets. It's a very brief moment, but cute.
** When [[spoiler:Stacy shows up at the hotel room and [[MistakenForCheating incorrectly suspects Dale of having an affair]], Kurt and Nick both immediately try to help Dale fix the problem (though, in typical fashion, they only end up [[CrowningMomentOfFunny making things worse]])]].
** When [[spoiler:Dale gets shot by Rex]], Nick and Kurt are both clearly horrified, and immediately rush to Dale's side to check on him. Nick even strokes his hair and [[spoiler:tells him he'll be all right]], though Kurt, as usual, is [[{{Troll}} a bit of a]] [[BrutalHonesty dick about it]].
** On the same note, when [[spoiler:Dale wakes up in the hospital, his two best friends are the people in the room with him. Nick has his hand on Dale's shoulder and strokes his hair, and both of them are very visibly happy to see Dale awake]].



* RewatchBonus: If you missed it the first time, it's blatantly obvious the second time that [[spoiler:Motherfucker Jones is up and phoning it in through the entire movie]].

** Did Rhonda's cheating lead to Harken being [[Properly Paranoid]] ... or did Harken's paranoia precede Rhonda's cheating, leading Rhonda to decide that if she's to be tried, convicted and sentenced for the crime then she may as well have the pleasure of actually committing it?

** Is Donald Sutherland really a CoolOldGuy, or a neglectful father who spent all his time building his company to the detriment of his son, who seems like a {{Jerkass}} but has actually just turned to HookersAndBlow to fill the void left by his parenting?

* IdiotPlot: Recording their conversations with their bosses right from the start would have solved a lot of the main characters' problems to varying degrees, but it takes them the entirety of the movie and a tip from a petty gangster wanna-be to figure that out. When they try it the normal way they're thwarted by their own constantly increasing stupidity.
** The ironic thing is the recording actually ''would'' have worked, [[spoiler: but Kurt choose to bail on the job to have sex with Harken's wife.]]

** [[spoiler:Harken killing Bobby because he thought he was sleeping with his wife. Its quite an accomplishment that he crosses it while also invoking the KickTheSonOfABitch trope.]]
** Bobby crosses it so many times in his first scene as Kurt's boss. The big one however is being willing to kill thousands of people in Bolivia out of greed, by not paying extra to properly dispose of the chemicals.

* NightmareFuel: [[spoiler: Harken's murder of Bobby.]] It's the only scene in the movie that's not PlayedForLaughs, and it's surprisingly realistic. Not unexpected if you've been paying attention in the coming seconds, but still a bit of a shock when it comes.
