* TheWoobie: Peter. He was once beaten up so bad his eye ''popped out of the socket'' and was so bullied so much that he would hide for hours in the toilets. Even today he seems pretty easily intimidated. [[spoiler:He eventually gets replaced by a Blank.]]

** The Blanks. They claim they aren't slaves, but they ''are'' -- beholden to the Network. When the Network leaves, they all revert to their normal personalities and are finally free of its control, and then subject to FantasticRacism.

** Old Basil is a decently funny and competent MrExposition character.
** The traffic cop is one of the more notable Blanks, especially given that it's a bit harder to tell if he is one at first.
** The "Marmalade sandwich" HoneyTrap Blanks are pretty memorable for being MsFanservice characters who provide a couple laughs.


** Pegg also shows how capable of reversing the roles, and being the ManChild to Nick Frost's StraightMan, as where it's been the otherway around for most of their films.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The story of the friends coming together in the beginning was a perfectly enjoyable setup that would have been interesting to see how it would come to its conclusion as a relationship movie, without any aliens or end of the world stuff.

A darker story could have been told about how Gary ''accidentally killed a teen boy'' and he and his friends had to cover it up.


* WhatAnIdiot: What, you guys just realized that [[spoiler: the town has been taken over by androids]] and you let [[spoiler: Ollie go to the toilets of the next pub]] by ''himself?'' Buddy system, guys! Justified in that they were already a little buzzed by that point.

The film {{Lampshades}} it by giving him tons of {{Traitor Shot}}s and when Gary seems to recognize this -- he instead gushes, "[[ComicallyMissingThePoint I]] ''[[ComicallyMissingThePoint like]]'' [[ComicallyMissingThePoint the new you!]]"


* SpiritualAdaptation: The closest we'd get to a remake of ''Film/TheyLive''.

to:

* SpiritualAdaptation: The closest we'd get to a remake of ''Film/TheyLive''. The film is ''very'' similar to TheSixties Z-film ''Film/TheHumanDuplicators'', including incredibly fragile ceramic heads.


* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: Creator/NickFrost gets a lot of praise for how, instead of playing the ManChild of the group, he takes the role of the StraightMan and utterly aces it. Similarly, if nothing can convince you that Simon Pegg can do his dramatic scenes really well, nothing will by this point.
