* HoYay: No small amount. In the original script, [[HideYourLesbians Jess and Jules WERE gay]]. The subtext is still bluntly obvious—and at the end of the movie, even though Jess and Joe kiss, she basically flies off into the sunset with Jules.

* IWantGrandkids : Jules' mother's delight on learning that one of the England women's national football team is a married mother suggests that her desperation for Jules to look for a man, and her hostility to the thought of Jules being a lesbian, could be this trope.

* TriangRelations: Jules has a crush on Joe, but tells Jess she doesn't; then she feels betrayed when Jess and Joe sort-of-kind-of start a relationship. To complicate things further, Joe isn't supposed to be dating either of them, as their coach, and Jess knows her parents wouldn't approve of her dating without their knowledge, especially a non-Indian guy. Oh, and Jules's mother mis-overhears Jules and Jess fighting about it and [[MistakenForGay believes they've had a bad breakup]].
