* AccidentalAesop:
** It's most likely unintentional, but the cause of [[spoiler:the car crash]] was [[spoiler:Tim]] checking his cell phone while driving. Talk about an unfair consequence.
** As long as you donate your organs, suicide is A-OK.
** If you've experienced a serious, personal tragedy, don't try to deal with it or seek psychological help, just donate your organs and kill yourself.

* BerserkButton: For some viewers, the protaganist's {{plan}}, and the implied Aesop that comes with it were this, especially amongst viewers who [[spoiler:knew someone who had committed suicide.]]

** Also, there's Thomas having sex with a woman with heart failure. [[OutWithABang Clearly that could not have ended well.]]
* DesignatedHero: Thomas' actions seem very stalkerish, bizarre, and just plain unsettling throughout the course of the movie. [[spoiler:Not to mention that he committed two felonies and in the end commits suicide.]]
* EsotericHappyEnding: [[spoiler: The film attempting to portray Thomas' sacrifice by committing suicide so that he donates everything he has to people in need as a happy ending.]]

* FridgeHorror: One of the people Thomas helps is a poor woman who has been suffering mistreatment at the hands of her abusive partner, he helps her by giving his fancy house next to the beach to her and her children to live in it. [[DidntThinkThisThrough Thinking it a little bit through]], he just left a big and expensive house to a person who's very likely she doesn't have the means to maintain it; worse, this woman already has a history of breaking up and returning with her abusive partner. Chances are this isn't going to end well.
