* PositiveDiscrimination: While all the men in the group have to deal with the various people they hurt in their lives, the one female in the group's only sin is [[spoiler:having a father who committed suicide when she was a child, through no fault of her own]].
** Though in the original script, her sin was an affair with a college professor where she villainized him after being caught and claimed sexual abuse. The storyline was changed so as not to reflect badly on the reputation of "nice girl" actress Julia Roberts.

* NippleAndDimed: Averted, surprisingly. ''TheAbyss'' did this with Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and it was PG-13. ''Flatliners'' is already rated R, and even has a sex scene in it! But Julia Roberts has a bra on during her resuscitation scene.
