* ChekhovsGun: Dede is shown packing a gun, and helpfully informs the audience, "This is {{foreshadowing}}. [[ViewersAreMorons Duh!]]". Despite the fact that she toys with being an UnreliableNarrator, it does get used later on. [[spoiler:And just when you think it's outlived its usefulness, it comes back a second time]].

* Creator/ChristinaRicci: In one of her earliest "adult" roles.

* PlayingAgainstType: Both the female leads. Ricci was known for playing definitely more family-friendly adolescents and Kudrow was known as [[{{Friends}} a certain airhead from New York]]...

* PlayingAgainstType: Both the female leads. Ricci was known for playing definitely more family-friendly adolescents and Kudrow was known as [[{{Friends}} NoBisexuals: Lucia certainly has this attitude. When Matt tries to explain he's bisexual, she remarks "I went to a certain airhead from New York]]...Bar Mitzvah once, that doesn't make me Jewish."

* NoBisexuals: Lucia certainly has this attitude. When Matt tries to explain he's bisexual, she remarks "I went to a Bar Mitzvah once, that doesn't make me Jewish."

Added DiffLines:
* ExpositoryHairstyleChange: Lucia's shorter hair at the end of the film symbolises [[spoiler: her happy new life as Carl's wife and a mother]]. Meanwhile Dede's shoulder length hair grows out to waist length suggesting [[spoiler: she might keep her kid after all]].

Added DiffLines:
* LettingHerHairDown: Lucia after [[spoiler: she and Carl have sex]]. * MaybeEverAfter: A non-romantic example. It's left open whether or not Dede [[spoiler: decides to stay with her baby]].

Added DiffLines:
* PosthumousNarrator: [[spoiler: Subverted as Dede allows the audience to believe she dies twice in the film]]. * SkewedPriorities: Lampshaded by Lucia after Matt suggests getting married due to Dede's pregnancy. --> '''Dede:''' I just don't think we should rush into it. --> '''Lucia:''' No but 'bring another life into the world', that's whim time.

* CharacterDevelopment: Almost the first thing Dede's narration tells us is that this isn't going to be a story about how she grew as a character and became a better person. At the end, she faces the possibly that she has changed, but she still stubbornly declares that she won't turn into a better person in front of us, and [[BreakingTheFourthWall shouts at the camera]] until it (and the audience) goes away.

* BrickJoke: Lucia tells Dede she pronounces her name "loo-sha" because of her sisters Marcia and Tricia when her parents actually named her "loo-chee-ah". Later on she gives her name to a credit card company and spells it out for them. After a pause she snaps "yes, I know how my own name is pronounced".
