!Tropes for the film:
* CollectiveIdentity: Arlo's twin sons pretend to be the same child at school.
* TheSwearJar: The movie has one. It is shown used normally to punish his daughter for swearing. She then pays in advance at one point so she can cuss him out. Later, when the "move" goes very badly, Arlo is seen preparing to let loose... instead, the movie cuts to the jar totally stuffed with cash. When he ''announces'' the move, his wife calmly gets up from the table, gets her purse, and starts feeding bills into the jar, and then tells the youngest children to leave the room.
* ThisMeansWarpaint: Arlo Pear dons warpaint when he decides to go commando on the movers who wouldn't deliver his furniture to the right address.
