Added DiffLines:

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: After the beginning, May's parents completely disappear from the story. There is no mention of them ''at all''. While this might be partly justified as May is an adult living her own life, still given that she's their only child you'd think she might be entitled to the odd phone call here and there. And lets face it; there are certainly moments when the [[TheWoobie poor thing]] could seriously use some advice on how to maintain a ''healthy'' relationship...

%%* * AssholeVictim: [[spoiler:Ambrosia.]]]] Unlike May's other victims who do have ''some'' redeeming qualities, [[spoiler: Ambrosia's]] entire [[FlatCharacter character arc]] is just her being [[{{Jerkass}} bitch]] to [[TheWoobie May]] (who had ''tried'' to be polite to her) for seemingly no reason other than possible jealousy over Polly's affection for her. Suffice to say very few tears were shed for her demise.



%%* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: May is a particularly heartbreaking-cum-vicious example.

%%* * WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: May is a particularly heartbreaking-cum-vicious example. She starts out the movie with good intentions just a wee bit [[CloudCuckooLander odd]]. All she wanted was a [[IJustWantToHaveFriends friend]], a ''real'' one but her eccentric nature prevents this from happening. One rejection after another and suddenly years of isolation and repressed self hatred come crashing down on the poor girl's head.

Added DiffLines:

* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Adam and May have a noticeable difference in size. There's even one scene where Adam is having to crouch down to meet May's eye level. The infamous hand nuzzling [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_0tpW_ATO4 scene]] ''his hand is bigger than her face''.

''May'' is a 2002 horror movie about a lonely young woman (played by Creator/AngelaBettis) and her efforts to develop some sort of meaningful connection with another human being. This is somewhat complicated by how [[ShrinkingViolet shy]], [[NoSocialSkills socially awkward]], and just plain weird she is. As each attempt fails, the already unstable May starts [[SanitySlippage going further and further down the rabbit hole]]...

Added DiffLines:

* OddCouple: From the brief glimpse we see of them, May's parents seem totally mismatched. Her father seem like a blue-collar worker and seems to be more laid back and accepting of his daughter. His wife, who also happens to be way out of his league, is a lot more domineering and obsessive about perfecting her flaws, [[spoiler: leading to many unforseeable issues down the road]].
