* InTheStyleOf: According to Edgar Wright, the film is structured like a musical, except instead of songs, people fight when their emotions get too extreme for words.



* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: [[spoiler: Ramona tries to pull this, but Knives throws herself in front of the bullet instead.]]
* JerkAss: This seems to be a defining trait of the kind of people Ramona used to date, including Scott himself ([[AnAesop he gets better]]).

Added DiffLines:

* ClassicalAntihero: Scott. Broke, no job, no education, no self confidence, lies to his high school age girlfriend. Most of the other characters have something going on [[note]]Steven, Kim, and Neil have the band, which Scott isn't dedicated enough too. Knives has school. Ramona, Julie, and Stacy have jobs. Envy, Todd, and the Katayanagi Twins have their own musical acts. Gedeon has the Chaos Theater. Lucas Lee is a famous actor and extreme athlete. The film never reveals what Matthew Patel, Roxy, or Wallace do.[[/note]] but Scott doesn't seem to do anything except stalk Ramona and hang out. He's a good fighter. That's about it.


Added DiffLines:

* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: The reason Ramona fell for Scott, at least on the surface. May be a case of an InformedAttribute, since Scott may be polite, but he's pretty short on good characteristics. She only calls him, "The nicest guy she's ever dated," but that's not saying much. See ClassicalAntihero.

While the critics and audiences loved the film, it wasn't able to make back its budget in the box office market, more than likely due to the humor being targeted to a certain demographic. However, it fared far better in the home market.

%%* MistakenFromBehind: Scott calls out to Lucas Lee but is ignored. When he goes up and turns him around, it's not Lee but his BodyDouble.
