* DownerEnding: [[spoiler:Nathan gets killed by Puff and is indefinitely trapped in some kind of purgatory. Lila takes the fall and goes to prison so that Puff can continue living freely in nature. And Puff...doesn't do that. He instead returns to civilization to have elope with Gabrielle, [[KarmaHoudini getting away with murder]] and not caring about what Lila did for him at all.]]

** AmbiguousEnding: And then [[spoiler: as he rides off with Gabrielle he shoots a look out the window that might indicate he's genuinely tempted to run off and actually live in the woods after all...

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Caught unawares in hr apartment, Gabrielle reveals that she is not truly French.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Caught unawares in hr her apartment, Gabrielle reveals (to the viewer at least) that she is not truly French.



* RapidHairGrowth: A relatively realistic example with Lila, who suffers from hypertrichosis.
* ShockCollar: Lila fits Puff with one during her attempt to train him to live in nature again.




to:

* YourCheatingHeart: Pretty much everybody at one point or another.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Very literally averted with the final shot in the movie, which shows [[spoiler: the two white mice trying to hitch a ride back to New York.]]

* SpoofAesop: Puff speaks to Congress about how civilization did not improve him. Played differently, this may have been the film's actual theme. But this scene immediately followed Lila, apropos of nothing, telling him "go testify before Congress on the waywardness of man!" and senators follow the speech by declaring, vaguely "we must pass some legislation on this matter."
