Added DiffLines:

* NakedPeopleAreFunny: Subverted with Simon, who gets naked twice, but it's not really laugh-inducing.


Added DiffLines:

* RuleOfThree: Simon strips three times. The first time, he's tricked into doing it by James. The second is during the skinny-dipping scene. [[spoiler:The third is during the boat party, but this time, he keeps his boxers on.]] Alison lampshades it the third time: "Does he ''always'' strip when he's happy?"

Added DiffLines:

* CrappyHolidays: It seems this trope will be played straight due to the typical misfortunes that befall the main characters, but it's ultimately subverted.

** Jay [[WouldHurtAChild pushes the kid who can't swim into the pool]] at the hotel, and a couple of patrons have to dive in to save him. [[spoiler:Will later contemplates suicide in the pool after the disastrous skinny-dripping scene. Also, at the end, Simon nearly drowns in the sea when his idea of a grand romantic gesture to Lucy goes wrong and he has to be airlifted back to shore and then go to hospital.]]

* JerkassHasAPoint: Sure, Jay is hardly the most likable of people, but he is fed up of Simon's obsession with Carli and tells him to get over her. [[spoiler:Eventually, Simon does.]]
* JerkassRealization: [[spoiler:Simon gets one during the boat party when he realizes Carli is using him to make James jealous. He ''finally'' sees Carli for what she is and admits that he made a bad choice in robbing Lucy of her chance to attend the boat party.]]



* LackOfEmpathy: Combined with some arguably correct logic by Will when he discovers the parents of a wheelchair-bound girl have reserved loungers by a pool. ("Hang on. You're not disabled, and she doesn't need anywhere to sit!")

* LoveMakesYouDumb: Carli does this to Simon. So much so that he obsesses over her nonstop and turns off another girl who is genuinely interested in him by constantly talking about Carli.

* LoveMakesYouDumb: Carli does this to Simon. So much so that he obsesses over her nonstop and turns off another girl who is genuinely interested in him by constantly talking about Carli. Pretty much everyone calls him out on it at some point.



* OhCrap:
** Will gets one during the skinny-dipping scene while searching for his glasses. Naked. [[spoiler:He bumps into Nicos and Alison as he finds the glasses and Nicos gets right in his face, forcing Will to scream for help and causing Alison to discover them.]]
** Humorous example at the end. [[spoiler:Neil gets one when he arrives at the airport with Lisa and as he is taking a picture of them both on his phone, sees that Nicole is behind him.]]



* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: [[spoiler:Neil at the end when he realises Nicole is waiting for him at the airport. He runs off with Lisa, leaving his luggage with his dad and Nicole is left confused.]]



* TheSilentBob: Lisa doesn't speak until the scene where she verbally attacks Richard's mother, mistaking her to be making a move on Neil.

** Also an example of HandWave - Simon just says "not moving to Wales" in the opening minutes to brush it off

* BingeMontage

to:

* BingeMontageBingeMontage: After the skinny-dipping scene, Neil inspires Will and the others to go out and start making the most of the holiday. The result is one of these.



* EveryoneCanSeeIt: That Lucy, not Carli, is the right one for Simon. Of course, Simon doesn't see it until the end.



* LoveConfession: Subverted. [[spoiler:Simon ''tries'' to pull off one to Lucy by swimming to shore and telling Lucy how he feels, but, as you'd expect, it becomes an EpicFail when he almost drowns and has to be taken to hospital. Lucy gets the message, though.]]



** Jay offering Will his bed when the latter is drunk. [[spoiler:Will had been about to go to sleep on the very ants' nest Jay had slept on the previous's night.]]

* ThrowTheDogABone: Could be said to be the entire point, after all the stuff the gang went through in the series.

Added DiffLines:

* MoodWhiplash: A three-layered variant of this occurs at the end of the film. [[spoiler:At the boat party, after finally realizing his feelings for Lucy, Simon dives off the boat to swim to her and proclaim his love, with everyone cheering him on. One fade to black later, the mood turns serious as they realise Simon is seriously struggling and will definitely not make it ("I think he might be drowning"). After another fade to black, the mood turns funny with the sound of the helicopter as Simon is airlifted out of the sea.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WellDoneSonGuy: Will is this, as can be seen in the opening scene. [[spoiler:At the end, Will takes a selfie of himself with Alison and sends it to his dad, which makes his father smile.]]

to:

* BettyAndVeronica: Simon is the Archie caught between Lucy (Betty) and Carli (Veronica). Also gender-inverted, with Will as the Betty and Nicos as the Veronica for Alison.



* BrickJoke: The bidet (or "kid's toilet" as Jay and Neil call it) is the subject of one. After the skinny-dipping scene, Neil does a shit in it.



** Will jokes to Alison that Nicos must get a lot of practice with women. [[spoiler:He is later found to be cheating on Alison during the skinny-dipping scene.]]



* LaserGuidedKarma: James gets this at the boat party with the [[ChekhovsGun 20 note]] Jay had kept up his arse he used to snort drugs. Poo on the end of your nose is going to send any girl running.

** [[spoiler:Jay having bought boat party tickets for the four as a surprise for them all while drunk. Sure, he tore two of them up (the ones for Simon and Will) but the fact that he was willing to do this in the first place qualifies.]]

** Jay's "No problemo" to James during the boat party nods to how Neil had this as a temporary catchphrase during "A Night Out In London".
