* NoPartyGiven: The Prime Minister, although FridgeLogic 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). He also... admires MargaretThatcher.

** 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 was more sceptical about Blair's relationship with Bush

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: inherent to the fact the film switches between so many storylines / [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters characters]].
** The opening scene is David (the Prime Minister) giving an emotionally touching speech about seeing love everywhere; then it immediately cuts to Billy (the singer) recording his song, which is played for laughs and accompanied by a fair amount of swearing by Billy.
** A scene of two body-doubles-for-actors on a set simulating sex while having a mundane conversation is immediately followed by Joanna's funeral, which ends with her husband Daniel carrying her coffin while the song ''Bye Bye Baby'' plays.
** To almost take it UpToEleven, while this song keeps playing, it cuts to happy lovers Peter and Juliet romanticly dancing to this very same (continued) song on their wedding.
** Right after the emotionally charged scene where Jamie and Aurelia say good-bye as he goes back to the U.K., it follows with the [[LargeHam hammy]] Bill Nighy character singing his record with lots of scarcely-clad ladies in the background

While not all of its stories feature HappilyEverAfter endings, the film as a whole is unabashedly sentimental and quickly became a holiday staple.
