* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: the homage to Arthur Abbott by the Writers' Guild of America.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome: The soundtrack, composed by HansZimmer, really adds to the atmosphere of the movie.
** Miles even shills Zimmer briefly.
* CrackPairing: You have to admit to Jack Black and Kate Winslet isn't a pairing you'd ever expect in any movie. That it ''works'' is definitely to the film's credit, unconventional as it may be.
* HilariousInHindsight: There's a fake trailer for a film starring Lindsay Lohan and James Franco. In ''Film/ThisIsTheEnd'', Franco thinks he is stuck on Earth after the Rapture because he claims to have slept with Lohan.
