* 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''.

* 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."

** Every computer is a Sony, and every mobile phone is a Sony-Ericsson. The reason for it being Sony specifically (other than computers and mobile phones being used in the film of course) is because Creator/ScreenGems is a Sony company.

** The Asian release made it look like a TeacherStudentRomance film by showing the "how I became an actual home wrecker" speech overlapping with the scene where she said that Mr. Griffith is her favorite teacher along with the one where Mrs. Griffith came to the room where Olive and Mr. Griffith are having a conversation about TheScarletLetter and other stuff. The title of the film didn't help.

** This may or may not have been intentional, but the actress who played the lead in the 1926 TheScarletLetter was known to be undyingly loyal and a favorite to a man she called "[[NamesTheSame Mr. Griffith]]".
