* TwoDecadesBehind: The film is set in the early nineties, yet the women of Porpoise Spit have tacky early eighties hairstyles and clothing. This may be meant to highlight what a backwater Porpoise Spit is.

->''When I lived in Porpoise Spit, I used to sit in my room for hours and listen to Music/{{ABBA}} songs. But since I've met you and moved to Sydney, I haven't listened to one Abba song. That's because my life is as good as an Abba song. It's as good as 'Dancing Queen'. ''

* IWantSong: In her most depressed moments, Muriel will pop a tape into her cassette player and sing along to one of the myriad of {{ABBA}} songs featured in the movie. (Usually ''Dancing Queen'', though, for Muriel, any [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome ABBA]] song will do.)

At the resort Muriel is further derided and rejected by her former friends; however her trip ends on a positive note after she meets Rhonda (Creator/RachelGriffiths), a [[ReallyGetsAround wild]] former classmate from Porpoise Spit. In an effort to impress Rhonda, Muriel tells her that she is engaged, and at the resort to have one last fling. Not eager to return home and face her father, Muriel impulsively chooses to move to UsefulNotes/{{Sydney}}, where she becomes room-mates with Rhonda. Deciding to completely re-invent herself (even to the point of changing her name to 'Mariel'), Muriel gets a job at a video-store and begins to pursue her dreams. Soon, however, her lies and her past begin to catch up with her, and Muriel is forced to face the person she truly is in order to grow into the person she wishes to become.

* HotGuyUglyWife: Muriel being ugly is YMMV (one can say she's a [[BigBeautifulWoman BBW]] whose effort at presentation falls flat), but CitizenshipMarriage husband David is a stunner.
