Added DiffLines:

* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: One cheerleader at one point asks "couldn't you just shoot the gun out of the bad guy's hand?" to which Sharp explains that it doesn't work. [[spoiler: Near the end of the movie, it [[BeyondTheImpossible does]]. As he did not intend to do that, Sharp was more impressed than anybody else who saw it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AdvertisedExtra: [[spoiler:Cedric the Entertainer (Percy)]] was heavily featured in TV promos, implying that he had a bigger role in the film than he actually does.


* TokenMinority: Teresa (Paula Garcés) fills the role of the token Spanish-interjecting Hispanic character, and Anne (Christina Milian) is the token African-American character.
