* SpoiledSweet: Caroline. She comes across as a bit of a vapid airhead, but seems nice enough. While her complaint to the management does inadvertently get Marissa fired, she wasn't being deliberately mean but instead justifiably upset about someone wearing her clothes and pretending to be her.

* [[ChekhovsGun Chekhov's Necklace]]: The beautiful Harry Winston wreath Marisa wears at the ball is what gets her caught. Caroline admires it on the ballgown wearing socialite that she meets at the ball--and recognizes it on the sweatshirt wearing woman she sees sneaking out of Chris's room the next morning.

* ClarkKenting[=/=]PaperThinDisguise: No one who knows Marisa under one identity recognizes her in the other--Chris doesn't recognize the Dolce & Gabbana-clad socialite as the woman who was cleaning his bathroom the day before (granted, he only saw her briefly), her own boss doesn't recognize her (again, granted, she's wearing sunglasses and keeps her face turned away so as to avoid this) and neither does anyone else, despite her picture being on the front page of the newspaper by the next day--her BFF Stephanie needs to be told by Marissa herself that it's her. Caroline's the only one who comes even remotely close, and even she can't figure it out, despite having met Marissa several times before their encounter at the ball.

Added DiffLines:
The film is likely best known for outperforming ''Film/StarTrekNemesis'' in their shared opening week, which was such an embarrassment to the ''Trek'' franchise that it killed the chances for any more films until JJ Abrams' reboot series.
