** Christie deserves a mention too. She carried on her spiteful AlphaBitch ways 10 years beyond highschool, retaining her GirlPosse who copy her every move, so she never grew out of her teenage bullying- but the reunion reveals her life is a pathetic shell of her past glories. She's an unfulfilled housewife with an unhappy marriage to an unfaithful sleazy loser, her only outlet in life is having baby after baby (which she pretends to be [[StepfordSmiler thrilled about]]) she never got the career she wanted, and to add insult to injury, all the people she tormented in highschool are happy and fulfilled, and the minion she used to boss around has a high flying career in fashion.

* InventorOfTheMundane: Michele claims she invented Post-It Notes; [[InventionPretension it's a lie to try to impress her old high school classmates]]). Sandy invents some kind of special rubber that's put on tennis shoes which makes him very successful and Heather invents cigarette paper that burns twice as fast which also makes her quite successful (with her buying a Jaguar as a hint to her success).

-->'''Michele''': Romy, can I tell you the truth? I never knew that we weren't that great in high school. I mean, we always had so much fun together...I thought high school was a blast! And until you told me that our lives weren't good enough, I thought everything *since* high school was a blast. I think we should go back out there as ourselves, and just have fun [[YouAreNotAlone like we always do]]. The hell with everyone else!

-->What the hell is your problem, Christie? Why the hell are you always such a nasty bitch? I mean, okay, so Michele and I did make up some stupid lie! We only did it because we wanted you to treat us like human beings. But you know what I realized? I don't care if you like us, 'cause we don't like you. You're a bad person with an ugly heart, and we don't give a flying fuck what you think!

* BlondesAreEvil: Averted. The popular, persistently bitchy Christie and JerkJock Billy are both brunette, while Michele is blonde and Romy has dark hair that she dyes blonde starting at the end of high school. The rest of the shallow, bullying "A-Crowd" are blonde, but this includes [[spoiler: Lisa Luder, who had matured and reformed by the time of the reunion.]]

* DawsonCasting: The entire cast play their teenage selves in the high school flashbacks even though they're all clearly in their thirties. Though, to be fair, this adds to the charm of the film.

-->'''Michele''': [[ToughLove Well, do you think you can stop being such a baby?]] God! I feel like I've been, like, chasing you all over this reunion. We have come all this way, now we are going to enjoy ourselves whether you like it or not!
-->'''Romy''': [''smiling''] God, Michele...I've never seen this side of your personality before. You're so bossy and domineering. I like it!
