Added DiffLines:

* HollywoodHomely: Tucker's actor had to wear a fat-suit in order to be suitably big enough to be considered fat, in order for certain jokes to work.
* Marsha taking off her glasses makes her seem prettier to Jack, despite being played by Courteney Cox.


* ValuesDissonance: Jack makes quite a few jokes at the expense of the chubby kid, Tucker. In 2006 this may have made him seem more like a grizzled AntiHero whose emotionally distant, but this can come across as unnecessary petty towards Tucker in particular, since it amounts to [[HarmfulToMinors a grown man insulting a child for his appearance.]]
** Jack is also generally rude and dismissive towards Marsha despite her being more informed about the nature of how the lab works, especially since these comments are often unprovoked by Marsha herself and are mostly due to Jack's exasperation at a given situation. He refers to her as "the green dress" for the earlier parts of the movie, essentially objectifying her to her clothes, and often downplays her intelligence and mocks her. It was likely intended to be endearing, but a modern audience might think otherwise.
** On that note, Jack also makes a somewhat homophobic comment when another man is giving a warning. This is especially jarring since it comes out of nowhere.
