** The most important exception, though, was the conversation between Mr. and Mrs. Griffith after Olive had left the room, where Mr. Griffith was trying to get his wife to have sex. Olive wasn't there, so how could she know what was said? Later, Mrs. Griffith told her that she had not had sex with her husband in some time in a way that seemed to put the blame on Mr. Griffith--did Olive in her recounting of events shift the blame to Mrs. Griffith because she was angry at her?

* YourCheatingHeart: [[spoiler:Micah and Mrs. Griffith are sleeping together. Micah's dating Marianne (not to mention a ''student''), Mrs. Griffith is, of course, married to Mr. Griffith. When she gives him chlamydia, he lies and says he got it from Olive, which wrecks Olive's newly-forged friendship/truce with Marianne.]]

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Played straight with Mr. Griffith, averted with Principal Gibbons, and subverted with Mrs. Griffith, who seems like a reasonable and empathetic guidance counselor, but then refuses to actually listen to Olive just when Olive is offering to open up to her, and instead assumes that the rumors about Olive are true, even though her husband had already told her they weren't. And that's before she's [[spoiler:revealed to be pure evil]].

*** Really an aversion or subversion. Hester Prynne really did commit adultery, whereas Olive didn't do any of the things that the rumors about her supposed, which, when you think about it, might be why Olive was not comfortable with Hester's "humble silence". Hester bore her punishment because, a puritan herself, she accepted that she deserved it. Olive knows herself to be innocent. Likewise, Dimmesdale really was a decent man who felt terrible remorse and begged Hester to name him and expose his guilt. Mrs. Griffith, by contrast, turned out to be pure evil.

* UnreliableNarrator: Olive states at the very beginning that this is ''her'' side of the story.

* HollywoodHomely: Olive says she's invisible to boys. This proves to be more or less the case before she starts with the whole slut thing, despite the fact that she's an intelligent, witty young woman who makes tons of pop culture references and looks like Emma Stone. On the other hand, her school does seem to have a rather large number of very-attractive young men and women (including her best friend), so perhaps she got lost in the shuffle.

* [[DoubleEntendre Triple Entendre]]: The title itself refers to a school course with a reputation for being easy to do well in, to Olive's reputation for being sexually easy, and to how easily the actually virginal Olive gets a reputation for promiscuity.

* WildTeenParty: Melody Bostic's party serves as a subversion. All references to sexual activities at her parties involve Olive, and both involve her lying about what happened (Olive and Todd lie about kissing in eighth grade, and Brandon and Olive are not actually having sex in the spare bedroom now). Despite appearances, nothing crazy is ever show actually ''happening''.

to:

* YouKeepUsingThatWord: Marianne and her friends (and perhaps the writer of the movie) seem to think that "adultery" means having sex outside of marriage. It actually refers to the more specific situation of a married person having sex with someone other than the person they're married to. The word someone like Marianne would use for what everyone thinks Olive is doing is "fornication."
