During its initial run, it had [[DuelingMovies competition]] the following year in the form of ''Something Wild'', starring Jeff Daniels, Melanie Griffith and Ray Liotta, which was also a movie about a milquetoast guy meeting a very worldly girl, and then [[ShockingSwerve things take a turn for the dark.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ClosedCircle: Paul does not has the money to pay for transportation away from the [=SoHo=] neighborhood that the events of the movie happen in, nor is he able to contact anybody who can help him (the one person who loans him a phone makes him forget his friend's number in a {{Troll}} act). And by the end of the movie, Paul can't even try to walk away because the risk of him being found by the lynch mob is too high.

* DisproportionateRetribution: Yes, it was rude of Paul to swat away the paperweight Julie presented him with (even if he had a reason to), but then what did she do about it? Spread a series of flyers accusing Paul of being the infamous [=SoHo=] burglar so he'll be hunted down by an irate, ''murderous'' mob.

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Marcy is exactly the plucky type Paul seems to need to get himself out of his boring rut. However, this trope is very darkly subverted - [[spoiler: She has a husband as well as a boyfriend, and ends up killing herself after Paul walks out on her.]]). Gail is also a dark subversion, in that she starts very chipper, but torments Paul [[spoiler: and later leads a lynch mob after him]].
