* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Surprisingly [[AvertedTrope averted]]. Although Josh gets a Makeover and start hanging out with the populars, he never [[TookALevelInJerkass becomes a jerkass.]] In fact, his geek friends actually act more like {{Jerkass}}es about it at first before they become more accepting later on.
* {{Adorkable}}: Josh is called this by one of Dylan's GirlPosse following his makeover.
* AnAesop: Popularity means more than just dressing the right way or hanging out with the right people. It means having actual friends you can count on.



* AllLoveIsUnrequited: In the beginning: Josh likes Amy, Caitlin likes Josh, and Steven likes Caitlin. Also Dylan to [[BastardBoyfriend Asher.]]
* AllWomenLoveShoes: Dylan.
* AlmostKiss: An odd twist on the theme. After the dramatic kiss that upgraded them to OfficialCouple, they almost kiss right at the end. He stops, looks at the camera, and covers up the lens to kiss her.

* BrokenAesop: In the book, a point of the story is that you can't have a relationship with someone based on just appearances if you don't really know the person you're with (ie: Dylan and Asher) Yet Josh has a crush on Amy based only on what he ''percieves'' her to be even though he barely knows her, and it just turns out that everything he thinks about her is true when he [[LastMinuteHookup gets together with her at the very end.]]

* ExtremeDoormat: Dylan when it comes to Asher. Even her two friends know this and state as much to Josh early on the film, remarking that the main reason why Asher dates Dylan is because he likes to be worshipped.
