* PrenupBlowup: Drives the entire plot.



* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism: The depiction of divorce and how only the lawyers benefit from it is appropriately cynical. Even in a romcom.

That rare [[Creator/TheCoenBrothers Coen brothers]] project based on someone else's idea. The original screenplay was written by Robert Ramsey and Matt Stone ([[NamesTheSame not]] [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark that one]]), then touched up by the Coens. Ramsey and Stone had shopped it to Creator/RonHoward and Creator/JonathanDemme before the Coens got on board. Perhaps because of this, it seems a little out of place among their other films (not that a Coen Brothers romantic comedy wouldn't already seem out of place).
