As Marder signed only non-exclusive rights with Paramount, it seemed that Lopez had infringed on Marder's rights to her own life-story as well as infringing on Paramount's rights to the story in the film. The lawsuit was with Lopez, Sony, and Paramount to establish copyrights in the film. The wealthy studios and star won the case against a small, poor plaintiff of course, despite stellar representation by Marder's LA law firm.

* XMeetsY: ''Film/TheDeerHunter'' meets ''Film/{{Rocky}}''. Certainly, a couple of those early-eighties dance sequences can trigger [[EpilepticFlashingLights 'Nam flashbacks]].

* MayDecemberRomance: Nick is also quite older than Alex. Lampshaded by the critics who say that the age difference is WAY too big among both the charas and the actors to be believable.

Added DiffLines:

* MaleGaze: When a customer starts extolling the virtues of Alex's ass to his pals ("Soft... round... snug..."), the audience gets to see him groping it as well, in closeup yet. (Until she pours a beer into his lap.)
