!! This film demonstrates the following tropes:
----
* ButtMonkey: Angus (Jeong) is this to the news crew, the butt of their jokes and general gopher.
* CuteClumsyGirl: Mary is very enthusiastic, and tends to forget what's in her way as she pursues Steve.
* DaChief: Keith David plays this role with his character as the owner of the TV Station that the news team is working for.
* GenkiGirl: Mary hits all the stops, the rapid speech, the unrelenting cheerfulness, flailing arms when she gets excited...
* TheGlomp: Mary performs a textbook example on Steve at the hospital, a flying tackle which just barely avoids knocking him over.
* InterchangeableAsianCultures: Korean Ken Jeong has dialogue indicating that he's Vietnamese although he also curses in Japanese and Mandarin during the movie.
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Mary is prone to this due to her job as a cruciverbalist, also sprinkling in gratuitous foreign languages
* SmallNameBigEgo: Hughes is convinced that he's the next big thing in the news.
* StalkingIsFunnyIfItIsFemaleAfterMale: Played with a bit. Hughes (Church) finds the situation hilarious and encourages Mary every chance he gets. Steve is terrified, and convinced that Mary wants to skin him and wear him as a suit. Mary is largely oblivious that her behavior might be considered stalking.
* TitleDrop: After the first date, Mary releases a crossword puzzle entitled "All About Steve" where every answer is some aspect of Steve.
