* PoorCommunicationKills: Trips starts worrying about his girlfriend cheating on him, and when he tries to call her, her roommate tells him she's "out with The Ricker" and stars ranting about how much noise The Ricker was making last night. Tripps naturally takes this as confirmation of his fears. Turns out that The Ricker is a dog she's taking care of. [[spoiler: Then, at the end, that turns out to be a lie, and she actually ''is'' cheating on him.]]
* ASimplePlan: Once Trips realizes he can't get the letter back, he decides to go to Memphis to intercept it. Sounds easy enough...

''Overnight Delivery'' is a 1998 straight-to-video romantic comedy. The main arc of the film is a highly formulaic RoadTripRomance, made watchable mainly by a pair of highly likeable leads, both of whom are probably more recognizable now than when the movie was made.
