*** That's what bugs me so much about it, though. They've just finished teaching him to stand up for himself... so he's willing to put up with a girl so ridiculously controlling psychotic she deliberately set him up for two weeks of emotional torture to make him more like what she wanted? That's pretty much the exact opposite reaction to what they could have even been aiming for. They're horrible, horrible people, and if he actually now knew how to stand up for himself, they'd be in JAIL.

Added DiffLines:

** I seem to remember some "minor" issue involving New York and commercial aircraft happening less than two years before this film hit theaters. Might have had something to do with how little tolerance pretty much everybody had for anyone causing problems aboard one.


** That's what I'm wondering. What if the security guard wasn't the transvestite from the cab? What if he got tackled before he could speak? What If he didn't get to the game? What if he didn't think to run on to the field and couldn't find his girlfriend?

Added DiffLines:

* Speaking of the air marshal: if someone tazed you for throwing a ''very'' mild tantrum, why would ''you'' go on trial? Why didn't Dave become an instant folk hero for pressing charges against the marshal for police brutality? Is his place in the scheme of things really ''that'' unfair?

Added DiffLines:

** Nope.

Added DiffLines:

*My biggest question is about how 'all of it' was a setup. How much of it was a setup? Was his three year annoying boss a setup and was it okay that he went into his boss' office and destroyed property? What about the bully who turned into a Buddhist monk, was he in on it and okay with getting beaten up?






* So, wait... what if Dave had snapped in, really, ANY OTHER WAY besides the way he did. Like if he went completely nuts and did something legitimately illegal, instead of all fake and staged with [[strike: [[WhereInTheWorldIsCarmenSandiego The Chief]]]] the fake judge. Or what if he'd done something rash with depression, and given up or done something worse?

*** Don't remember about the judge, but the air marshal was incidental. It would have still been played off as a violent crime by everyone involved even if Dave hadn't been tazed.
* Been awhile since I seen the movie, but was the $3500 dollars he was forced to pay the flight attendant ever mentioned again?


*** XanatosRoulette.
*** Yep, Xanatos Roulettes are pretty fucking ridiculous.

** Sadly, that probably wouldn't have worked, since the entire scam depended on subverting the judicial system in the first place. He probably would've ended up in front of the same judge and sentenced to more "therapy". Yes, even if he was the plaintiff-- it's a "comedy" movie, so it doesn't have to make sense.

** Wasn't she a fake judge? And wasn't that black security guy who tazed him NOT part of Buddy's plan?


* So...has that judge been fired yet? She intentionally handed down a false ruling. And Buddy staged a violent altercation ''on an airplane''. In''2003''. Does the entire Department of Homeland Security owe him a favor or something?
