It doesn't work.]]


Added DiffLines:

* BreakingSpeech: [[spoiler: Wade tries this [[IgnoredEpiphany unsuccessfully]] on Sueleen after she's manipulated into doing a strip-show, telling her that she doesn't have what it takes to be a star.]]
* BreakTheCutie: After [[spoiler: being manipulated into a degrading strip performance on night four on promises of performing alongside Barbara Jean,]] Sueleen is despondent, visibly disturbed and a little unstable. When Wade confronts her after the fact, [[spoiler: in their final conversation, and outright tells her that she can't sing, doesn't have talent and will never be a star, she just disregards what he tells her and shuts the door on him, suggesting [[DownerEnding all she's really got to look forward to is being manipulated more, without any success]].]]

* TheVoice: Presidential candidate Hal Philip Walker. His one on-screen appearance is shot from long distance so we never see his face. For the record, his portrayer Thomas Hal Phillips looked like [[http://www.mswritersandmusicians.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/thomas-phillips5.jpg this]].

Altman had Phillips reprise the role a decade later in ''O.C & Stiggs'', showing Walker giving a few speeches on TV. We get a better view of Walker but still not a crystal-clear image.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Opal is just an eccentric woman who ''thinks'' she's a BBC reporter. Apparently a scene was shot that revealed this to be the case but it didn't make the final cut, so we only have a few subtle hints (like the fact that her cameraman never seems to show up).
