* GoLookAtTheDistraction: Jeff pulls one of these on the group in order to steal the editing laptop. It's so overt and petty that they debate for a while whether he's [[MyGodYouAreSerious just messing with them]].

* ConspicuousCG: The lasers and other effects are pretty blatant, but Garret's tennis ball-- sorry, alien, deserves special mention. It's explained that the model was created at least a decade previous.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorAllusion: "Why does it have to be a police movie? People don't even like police now", says [[Film/PoliceAcademy Carey Mahoney]].

Added DiffLines:

* AwkwardSilenceEntrance: In the tag, after Chang's career as an actor ended before it even started, he tries coming back to the study room as if nothing happened. His quiet entry interrupts the animated discussion between the members of the Save Greendale Committee, leading to a long awkward silence.


** HilariousInHindsight given that Creator/AlisonBrie is, as of 2017, James Franco's sister-in-law through her marriage to his brother Dave.

Added DiffLines:

* AmateurFilmMakingPlot: The Save Greendale Committee creates an AffectionateParody of Franchise/StarWars in order to capitalize on Chang's success in a television commercial and future appearance in a movie made by Creator/StevenSpielberg.


** The show's former timeslot rival, ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', gets one when Abed pops out of the frisbees to surprise Jeff, referencing [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qH1VOy7HKRs this scene]] from [[Recap/TheBigBangTheoryS3E14TheEinsteinApproximation The Einstein Approximation]]. [[BorrowedCatchPhrase "Bazinga!"]]

Added DiffLines:

* EnsembleDarkhorse: InUniverse, Glip Glop (the CG alien played by Garrett) is a fan favorite of everyone except Jeff, despite having a tangential role in the film at best.


* BrickJoke: At the start of the film, Jeff's character tells Chang's character "I'll see you in hell!". In the amended ending, Chang's character is killed off & meets Jeff's, who comments "I told you I'd see you in hell."

* NoodleIncident: The leaked video of Chang apparently includes a hot air balloon and Creator/JamesFranco's balls. We never see any of it, only the cast's [[ReactionShot reactions]].

* PutOnABus: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. The episode seems like a clumsy way of writing Chang out of the show, but then he turns back up in the last scene and everything goes back to normal.

** Creator/ChrisPratt has apparently replaced Ryan Seacrest as the guy Jeff is most jealous of. Pratt and Creator/AlisonBrie played a married couple in ''The Five Year Engagement'', which puts a rather meta spin on Jeff and Annie's ShipTease.
