* CriticalResearchFailure: One of Charlie's sons exclaims "Man, how the hell can they call Pluto a planet, man? What kind of planet has an elliptical orbit? This shit don't make sense!" Almost all planetary orbits are at least ''a little'' elliptical. A true oddball orbit would be a perfect circle.



* HarsherInHindsight: The film makes jokes about Irene's slender frame, with Charlie's sons proclaiming that their father wouldn't run off with "a skinny-leg girl", and Hank jesting that she used to develop an eating disorder and gained about 20 lbs. With the knowledge of [[ReneeZellweger Renee Zellweger's]] own WeightWoe as a result of the 20-something pound weight gain to play BridgetJones, and the [[YouAreFat press's own negative attention]] towards her [[HollywoodPudgy post-1970 Hollywood atypical curves]], and her rapid weight loss after the completion of the films, the dialogue can come off as awkward and insensitive.
* HilariousInHindsight: One of Charlie's sons exclaims "Man, how the hell can they call Pluto a planet, man? What kind of planet has an elliptical orbit? This shit don't make sense!" Pluto was demoted in 2006, six years after the movie was released. While we're at it...

* TheWoobie: Charlie. The second you see his kids being born, you will feel sorry for him. It only increases as the film goes on, and you learn that the entire town is laughing at him behind his back and he knows it, but is too nice to do anything about it.
** Becomes a bit of an IronWoobie, because regardless of who their real father is, Charlie loves his kids. He can take abuse directed at him, but when it comes to his kids, even his doormat status prompts him to defend them without even thinking.

* JerkassWoobie: Hank. He's the one who has had to deal with all of Charlie's repressed rage for twenty years or so, and never gets out to express it. He also notes to Irene that before Charlie's wife left him, their personality was more integrated; when she left, she left both of them, and that was the point when Charlie split off the Hank personality and locked it away.

Added DiffLines:

* FridgeHorror: When Hank first surfaces, one of the first things he notices is that he's carrying a gun. If Hank's response to disrespect is to nearly drown a little girl and smash a car into a barbershop, it's a good thing nobody ever took it further than that.
