* BaitAndSwitch: Mark gazes so longingly at the newlyweds Peter and Juliet that Sarah asks if he's in love with ''him'', leading the audience to think that this is the reason he's so hostile to Juliet. Only for him to be in love with Juliet after all, thus putting a fresh twist on a clichéd situation.

* {{Bowdlerize}}: Aside from the standard removal of curse words, etc., John and Judy's sub-plot is completely removed from the AMC airing. No doubt the editors realized that there would be absolutely no way to get around the fact that they're naked in nearly every single one of their scenes.

* {{Eagleland}}: Mixed Flavour. The US President (played by Creator/BillyBobThornton as UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush with an added dose of UsefulNotes/BillClinton's infamous womanising) is textbook flavour 2. It's the Sarah character, and her deep concern for her brother over her own happiness, which balances out the movie's portrayal of Americans. Joanna is also an American and is portrayed positively.
** And the Wisconsin Girls are Flavour 3: {{Cloudcuckoolander}} (with a hint of sexy).

* NoPartyGiven: The Prime Minister, although FridgeBrilliance suggests he's a Conservative (he is clearly implied to succeed UsefulNotes/TonyBlair and seems to have achieved the position by virtue of winning an election rather than succeeding within the party).

** Worth noting that there's said to be a "strong feeling in the [PM's] party" that he should stand up to the Americans - Atlanticism is a very strong sentiment in the Conservatives. It was the left that was more sceptical about Blair's relationship with Bush.
