* {{Mondegreen}}: An excellent lampshading of this occurs after Kevin and Jane get wasted in a bar and both demonstrate that they have no idea what the real lyrics are to "[[Music/EltonJohn Benny and the Jets]]". But that doesn't stop them from singing and dancing to it anyway.

* IMissMom: Even though it's shown that Jane and Tess were younger then toddlers when their mother passed away, her loss is implied to be a huge factor in Jane's personality, a cause of sadness in the family (especially for their father), and a significant contributor to several plot points.

* RageBreakingPoint: Jane's personality and upbringing are the reasons she can stay so calm the whole movie, even when she's grinding her teeth to respond, but when [[spoiler:she finds out that Tess cut up their deceased mother's wedding dress to make it more "modern"]] she finally [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech cracks.]]

Eventually the girls' father forces them to see each other and work out their differences. Tess learns that she needs to be less selfish and more compassionate before she deserves a guy like George. Jane realizes that Kevin was right, and she needs to learn to take care of others without completely ignoring herself. Later that evening George invites Jane to a charity event, as he needs a date. She meets him at the office, where she finally confesses her feelings for him. He kisses her, [[spoiler: but they both realize they have zero chemistry.]], which sets up the finale. [[spoiler:Jane realizes Kevin is actually the right guy for her, and she [[TheyDo ends up with him instead]].]]

The movie was considered so-so by critics (41% at RottenTomatoes), but well-received by its [[ChickFlick target audience]]. It was considered a financial success, grossing over $160 million worldwide, while only costing $30 million to make. The low production budget can be attributed to the strong, but not terribly well-known cast.

* AtomicFBomb: Jane becomes so pissed off about the fact that Kevin sent her flowers instead of George that she leaves the party temporarily to scream one in the hallway. The consequence that follows moments after could very well be a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
