There were lots of things I thought would pay off later, but never did. For instance, I thought the girls' luggage would be stolen after they gleefully left it unattended in the back of their pickup on a crowded street. Also, did anyone else think Carlos was going to turn out to be gay? He seems so reticent to acknowledge the black girl at first, then starts to say something like "I'm not the kind of guy who..." and then his boss interrupts him before he can finish. I thought we were headed for some big reveal.
So much of this baffles me the more I think of it. The white rapper douchebag at one point boasts how he doesn't know what it feels like to be turned down...when he's been turned down by literally every woman he's approached the whole movie.
And how the hell does the BR&J business model work? They just seem to show up places, declare there's a party by fiat, and then collect admission. Did they rent these spaces and build the various stages themselves? June pointed out how they seem to have $1,000 to give away, but after the events he's always going "Hell, yeah! I made 350 bucks!"
