* BigFancyHouse - A bit run down, but freakin' enormous.
* BoyfriendBluff - A variation. Frances grabs Marcello and pretends to be his girlfriend in order to get rid of some rude admirers.
* HollywoodEconomics - She gets $300,000 from the sale of her house, and isn't implied to have a great deal more sitting around. The villa she buys must be worth a million Euro...at least, not counting the renovation with crew. It doesn't quite add up.

* OliveGarden - The movie arguably wouldn't work at all otherwise, but the it's taken to ridiculous extremes.

!!This film includes examples of:

* BigFancyHouse - A bit run down, but freakin' enormous.
* BoyfriendBluff - A variation. Frances grabs Mercello and pretends to be his girlfriend in order to get rid of some rude admirers.

** The scene where she makes her offer to the original owner heavily implies that it's a rather paltry sum. She's only sold the house because a pigeon flies over and... eliminates on her, which the owner takes to be a sign from God (or something like that). Francis goes over things like renovation expenses, as well, though it's never quite explained how much she actually has.
