Added DiffLines:

* EroticFilm: Lots and lots of sex in this movie.


Added DiffLines:

* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Deconstructed with Betty. She hits most of the notes of the MPDG--fun-loving, madcap, sexy, dedicated to the hero, generally zany and unpredictable--but her zaniness and unpredictability takes a very dark and violent form, with Betty given to violent rages. Eventually she has a complete mental breakdown.

Added DiffLines:

* FanDisservice: All the Béatrice Dalle nudity takes on another context later in the film, when Zorg finds a nude Betty in the shower, in a near-catatonic state. When he snaps her out of it she tells him she's hearing voices.


Added DiffLines:

* HearingVoices: A sign towards the end of the film that Betty's mental state is going from shaky to something worse.

* MoodWhiplash: A drunken bacchanal with Zorg, Betty, Eddy, and Eddy's girlfriend that looks like it's about five minutes away from becoming APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy is suddenly interrupted when Eddy gets news that his mother has died. Then we cut to Eddy getting dressed, and putting on the only tie he owns...which has a picture of a naked woman on it.

Added DiffLines:

* MoodSwinger: Betty is unable to control her emotions. Sometimes she is madly passionate. Sometimes she gets angry, and when she gets angry she does stuff like set houses on fire and punch her arm through a glass window.

* BabyCarriage: Zorg has to slam on the brakes of the delivery truck as a woman with a baby carriage trundles past.



* DrivesLikeCrazy

to:

* DrivesLikeCrazyDrivesLikeCrazy: Betty gets behind the wheel of the car Zorg just acquired. When she isn't grinding the gear box she's zooming down the road at high speeds and swerving in and out of her lane into the opposite lane. Finally she yanks the car off the road and says she's never driving it again, much to Zorg's relief.
