* SecretHandshake: Manu and Jean-Gab do a simple one very often, saying "taureau"[[note]]bull[[/note]] while hitting each other's hand, whenever they greet or congratulate. Late in the film they are asked to explain it and are very awkward about it. Dupieux did that before in ''Film/{{Steak}}''.

* PoliceAreUseless: Played with. Manu does very illegal things (assault, armed robbery, illegal use of a weapon) and police never seem to look for him. On the other hand no one is ever shown complaining to them. Late in the film they actually do something unrelated to Manu's crimes, in a very incompetent manner.



* TapOnTheHead: Manu knocks a man unconscious and treats his body in a very dangerous manner. A few minutes later he seems to be fine.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Early in the film Manu and Jean-Gab assault a man and take things from him. He escapes from them, but apparently never complains to the police since they never run into them. (Of course he may be dead from an earlier TapOnTheHead).


* ArtisticLicenseCars: At some point the old car doesn't start because it is out of gas[[note]](most of the time a car that runs out of gas would stop while driving)[[/note]]. Later Manu and Jean-Gab connect it to an other car's tank using a pipe, start it and then drive away. So lack of gas is treated like a low battery.

Manu (Grégoire Ludig) is a simple-minded, homeless man who is offered a shady but profitable job: he has to deliver a package and not ask what is inside. He steals a car and takes his best friend Jean-Gab (David Marsais) with him. On their way they find a giant fly and decide to tame it in order to earn money.

"earn" money (they make vague plans about the giant fly stealing for them).


* SpecialPersonNormalName: The delivery job consists in taking a package from a wealthy man named Michel Michel (while Michel is a common name, being named Michel Michel sounds silly) to an other wealthy man who is not named.

* TheAllegedCar: The car that Manu steals is an old Mercedes. Everyone but him looks down on it, and the trunk becomes stuck closed the second time he attempts to open it.

* MistakenIdentity: A woman mistakes Manu for an ex boyfriend and invites the protagonists to her parents' place where she is spending a summer vacation with her brother and two friends. Manu plays along in order to get free food.
