* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: A case can be made for Joe being a SociopathicHero rather than a KnightInSourArmor. In addition to his {{Jerkass}} tendencies, his hostile and borderline-abusive interactions with his wife and daughter call his morality into question. He also seems to have a propensity to violence, as evidenced when he antagonizes Jimmy into hitting him.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: This could be a reason why it underperformed at the box office.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Unintentional, retrospective aversion for modern viewers--yes, they really ''would'' kill off Creator/HalleBerry's character after a couple of scenes, because when this film was made she was a no-name playing a bit part (though she still gets a card to herself in the opening credits).
* RetroactiveRecognition: Prior to this film, Halle Berry's biggest claim to fame was as the love interest in a low-budget black romantic comedy called ''Strictly Business''. Her star would start to rise in her next movie, the EddieMurphy comedy ''Boomerang''.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Let's face it, the movie is ''extremely'' cynical and brutal. Joe and Jimmy can be rather hard to like, and the [[CompleteMonster peo]][[JerkAss ple]] around them are little better.

** Joe says that all the makeup his daughter wears makes her "look like a goddamn raccoon". Fast-forward to 2006 and in the animated film ''OverTheHedge'', Willis actually [[PlayingAgainstType provided the voice for a raccoon]].
