* MsFanservice: Vivian; it's especially striking given Roberts purposely avoided the trope the rest of her career with the exception of a poorly chosen time to go skinny dipping scene in 1994's ''I Love Trouble''.

* UnproblematicProstitution: While actually averting this trope completely, the movie managed to become the most famous example of the trope due to people's extremely low expectations for the treatment of sex worker characters. To the dismay and moral outrage of many viewers, the movie averted the [[UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode once upon a time mandatory]] tradition that TheHookerWithAHeartOfGold must be killed off before the story is over.
