* CleopatraNose: Ironically, Creator/UmaThurman has a noticeably bigger nose then Creator/JaneaneGarofalo's, thus reversing that aspect of the original book.

** Quoth Creator/RogerEbert: "The movie is based upon the presumption that Garofalo is not pretty, and of course she is."

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: Many, (if not most) viewers considered Garafalo to be more attractive than Thurman, making the "guy falls for girl based on her brain and personality" completely invalid.

* OldShame: Janeane Garofalo will not be happy if you tell her you loved this movie. [[spoiler: Among other things, she prefers how the script originally ended - with Abby ''not'' getting Brian.]]

* HollywoodHomely: Played with: Creator/JaneaneGarofalo is beautiful by any normal standards. However, she considers herself far from attractive, especially when compared to UmaThurman. It's never stated if she is considered ugly InUniverse and Creator/UmaThurman has a serious case of self esteem issues where she considers herself ugly.
