Added DiffLines:

* TheFilmOfThePlay: A faithful adaptation of the 2006 play ''Theatre/GodOfCarnage''.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: Possibly unintentional, but this is not the first time we've seen Christoph Waltz [[Film/InglouriousBasterds in a long dark Gestapo-ish coat.]]


''Carnage'' is a 2011 DarkComedy film by Creator/RomanPolanski starring JodieFoster, Creator/JohnCReilly, Creator/ChristophWaltz and Creator/KateWinslet, based on the play ''Theatre/GodOfCarnage'' by French playwright Yasmina Reza.

Added DiffLines:

* SparedByTheAdaptation: More like "the adaptation confirms [[spoiler: the hamster's]] survival".

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationNameChange: Since the film is set in a different country than the play, this was bound to happen. However, only Penelope (who was Véronique in the play) and the kids (Zachary/Ferdinand; Ethan/Bruno) play this trope straight; the other three main characters' names are literal traductions of their original French names.


* NietzscheWannabe: Alan is an unashamed nihilist. [[spoiler: Once he gets drunk, Michael]] gives Penelope a lecture on the hypocrisy of her liberal sensibilities.


Added DiffLines:

* StrawNihilist: Alan is an unashamed nihilist.

* AbuseIsOkayWhenItIsFemaleOnMale: Sort of. Penelope eventually gets fed up and starts pounding Michael's back, but it isn't taken too seriously. However, it should be noted that the lack of reaction to it seemed less to do with gender, and more to do with the fact that (A) he was being ''really'' annoying, and (B) he is much bigger and more solidly built than her, and didn't seem to be in any pain from it.

* ShaggyDogStory: The two kids [[spoiler: are playing together at the end of the film, making the whole meeting between the families utterly pointless, except to illustrate how childish and prideful the supposedly "mature" adults can be while their children are just fine with the way things transpired.]]
