* AcceptableTargets: "There are good cops, but the only good skinhead is a dead skinhead."
** Given the context, it could also be interpreted as just egging on.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The Cow.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The behaviour of the main characters and their tendency to escalate anything into a fight can increasingly make one feel that the police's treatment of them is entirely justified.
* {{Woolseyism}}: The film has a character nicknamed 'ComicBook/{{Asterix}}', famous to the French but likely to be lost on English and American viewers at the time of release. At least one release instead called him [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]] in the subtitles. Another character later snarks that they have Obelix with them; he was localised as Charlie Brown.
