* HiddenDepths: Dewey is a slacker and a ManChild, but he takes his ambitions to become a rock star completely seriously, as evidenced by his use of theory terms when teaching the kids "Smoke On The Water."

* NoAntagonist: The film has no defined bad guy. The ones who comes closest have some good intentions, such as the kids' parents, Dewey's old bandmates, and Mullins. Patty is the closest thing the film has to an antagonist, but [[JerkassHasAPoint she is right when she says that Dewey needs to pay the rent on the apartment, because he'll be evicted if he doesn't]].

** Dewey's old band mates fire him from the band only because his behavior on stage is truly embarrassing and is in the way for the band's success.
** Mullins enforces a strict code for the school because of the pressure from the over-protective parents. That said, the parents only act the way they do because they want quality education for their children, and they are rightfully upset that their kids were taught by an unqualified substitute teacher.
** Patty might be an overly domineering girlfriend to Ned, but

* StealthInsult: Dewie telling Ned that he'll "throw [him] and [his] dog a bone" while gesturing to Patty at first sounds like a {{pun}} until you remember that "dog" is also an extremely rude term for an ugly woman.

Added DiffLines:

* FlatWhat: Dewey's reaction to Ned suggesting he should sell one of his guitars for rent money. However, we later see Dewey attempting to do just that, after he's kicked out of No Vacancy.


Added DiffLines:

** Dewey tells Ned in their first scene to dump Patty, because of how she's a jerk to both of them. Ned eventually has enough of Patty and slams the door on her.


Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: As the film does not have a defined antagonist, Patty seems to function as this. She does have a few JerkassHasAPoint tendencies, but she is a pretty nasty girlfriend to Ned and even worse to Dewey. No wonder Dewey hates her, and it gets to the point where Ned decides Patty isn't worth his time and leaves her.


Added DiffLines:

* NoAntagonist: The film has no defined bad guy. The ones who comes closest have some good intentions, such as the kids' parents, Dewey's old bandmates, and Mullins. Patty is the closest thing the film has to an antagonist, but [[JerkassHasAPoint she is right when she says that Dewey needs to pay the rent on the apartment, because he'll be evicted if he doesn't]].
