* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Everyone spends the first three-quarters of the film mocking and dismissing Lina for being "dumb, or something." When she finds out that Don and R.F. Simpson intend to brush her aside so Kathy can take her place in the spotlight, she proves cunning enough to hire a lawyer to ReadTheFinePrint of her contract and [[LoopholeAbuse exploit a loophole]] that says she doesn't have to agree to anything she doesn't like, which she promptly uses to blackmail R.F. into removing Kathy from the credits and force her to keep working as Lina's (uncredited) voice for the rest of ''her'' five-year contract. Thankfully, she [[DidntThinkthisThrough doesn't think the whole thing through]].

* CaptainObvious: The man in the "talking picture" demonstration. Justified somewhat as he is trying his best to sell a totally new and unknown concept, and even then the party-goers don't quite get the idea at first.
