- One-Scene Wonder:
- Mathieu Amalric as the Pastry Assassin. In a film that's frequently defined by its stilted dialogue, he stands out with some glorious ham.
- Paul Giamatti as the actual assassin.
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The film parodies many real-life financial whizzes by stating that they are emotionally dead, ego-centric sociopaths with no regard for ethics or anyone else but them.
