* AbilityOverAppearance: Christy was written to be 12 or 13 years old but Jim Sheridan ended up casting 10 year old Sarah Bolger in the role after she impressed him.
** Which gives us a weird line where Christy's narration says "and that's when the baby was conceived". Sure a 13 year old knowing about conception is understandable but a 10 year old, not so much.
* ActorAllusion: The London accent that Johnny is asked to do at an audition is actor Paddy Considine's real accent.



* FakeNationality: British Paddy Considine and Samantha Morton play the Irish parents and many of the American characters are played by Irish actors.



* ThePeteBest: Sarah Bolger actually never intended to audition for the film. Her sister Emma auditioned for Ariel and then said to Jim Sheridan to meet her sister who was in the car outside.

* AerithAndBob: An Irish family with names such as Johnny, Sarah, Christy, Frankie and...Ariel? We can only assume the parents were massive fans of ''TheLittleMermaid''.

* CallingTheOldManOut: A sadder version of this trope than normal; when Johnny asks Christy, "Are you okay, little girl?", she snaps, "Don't 'little girl' me. I've been carrying this family on my back for over a year."



* WelcomeToTheBigCity
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Intended as a family film yet has mentions of a character with a brain tumour, a lengthy sex scene between the parents and [[spoiler: Mateo dying of AIDS]].
