* HomoeroticSubtext: Lydia seems to be just as entranced by Suzanne as Jimmy and Russel. Suzanne, despite her general stupidity, actually does pick up on this, and mentions Lydia's "lesbian tendencies" when trying to bully the girl.

* HomoeroticSubtext: FemmeFatale: Suzanne's sex-oriented manipulations and generally dark actions definitely paint her as this. See TheVamp, below.
* FilmNoir: [[PlayedForLaughs PlayedFor]] BlackComedy. Suzanne's the FemmeFatale, and Jimmy's the sap. The crime is murder of her husband.
* HomoeroticSubtext / EvenTheGirlsWantHer:

* TheMafia (Played with: Suzanne's father's fears that her Italian-American husband comes from a Mafia family are intended to come across as ridiculous and borderline racist. [[spoiler: Turns out they ''are'' a Mafia family but they only react when ''Suzanne'' has a man killed, and then the only person they hurt is Suzanne herself in revenge.]])

Though not a box office success the film was praised by critics and has become a minor CultClassic. It earned $21,284,514 in the United States market, the 77th most successful film of its year. Kidman earned her first Golden Globe for her role and many fans still rank it with some of her best work (and certainly her best comedy).
