* ExecutiveMeddling: Natalie Portman spoke in one interview that studio execs refused to let her improvise anything. The thinking was since she's mostly been in drama films, [[InsaneTrollLogic she wouldn't know how to be funny]]; despite the fact that she appeared on ''SaturdayNightLive'' once, and her role in ''GardenState'' was comedic. Natalie only got one improvised moment in (the bit with the 3D Glasses), and it's possibly one of the film's [[CrowningMomentOfFunny funniest moments]].

* [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Manic Pixie Dream Guy]]: Adam. So adorable, romantic and quirky, he might as well be played by Creator/ZoeyDeschanel. Seriously, the guy made her ''a period mix.''

* DuelingMovies: ''Film/FriendsWithBenefits'' runs an incredibly similar plot to this film as you might have guessed, releasing six months after this one. And for an added bonus, the female lead of that movie is Natalie Portman's ''BlackSwan'' co-star, MilaKunis, who also played Aston Kutcher's girlfriend on ''That70sShow'' (and following Kutcher's divorce, he and Kunis would date in real life). The male lead, JustinTimberlake used to be in Music/{{NSYNC}}, which once released an album called ''No Strings Attached''.

Foot Focus was redirected. Examples not fitting a better trope are being removed.
* FootFocus: There are a couple times where Natalie's bare feet are right up at the camera. Such as when her underwear is getting pulled off. Plus, she's barefoot on the movie poster. In some versions of the poster, the title doesn't obstruct her feet.
