* OliveGarden - The movie arguably wouldn't work at all otherwise, but AnchoredShip: [[spoiler:Francesca and Marcello]]. An unusual variation in that the trope is taken party who anchors the ship points out that they were completely reasonable to ridiculous extremes. do so -- scheduling mismatches and a bunch of other things that just screamed, "Sorry, I'm not ready to have a relationship right now, no matter how much I want to be" -- and the other party accepts this.
* BetaCouple: Pawel and Chiara.



* 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.

to:

* ComeBackToBedHoney: a woman telling this to the RomanticFalseLead is how Frances finds out that he is going to ''be'' the RomanticFalseLead.
* TheDanza: The actor who played Pawel is named Pawel.
* ExactWords: Frances vents to the Italian realtor at one point that she wants to host a marriage at her villa, and for someone to have a daughter there. She gets her wishes... as a pseudo-mother-figure to the groom, and an aunt to the child.
* HasTwoMommies: ZigzaggedTrope. Frances' best friend Patti has conceived a child to raise with her partner Grace. Then Grace leaves her. ''Then'' Patti goes all HeterosexualLifePartners with Frances.

to:

* InterruptedIntimacy: Frances walks in on Pawel and Chiara at one point late in the movie. Since Frances claims the office of TeamMom, this also verges into ParentsWalkInAtTheWorstTime.
* [[LastGirlWins Last Guy Wins]]: Frances' ''actual'' love interest doesn't show up until about two minutes before the credits.
* MalignedMixedMarriage: Pawel, a Pole, has to fight for approval from Chiara's Italian family.
* OliveGarden: The movie arguably wouldn't work at all otherwise, but the trope is taken to ridiculous extremes.
* OneNightStand: Frances ends up having one with [[spoiler:Marcello]], despite frantic efforts to convert it into something more long-term.
* ParentalMarriageVeto: attempted by Chiara's family.
* RightThroughHisPants: to keep the movie's rating down, basically every sex scene involves either this or a ModestyBedsheet.
* RomanticFalseLead: [[spoiler:Marcello]]
* RuleOfSymbolism: When Frances first buys the villa, she finds a faucet sticking out of the wall that apparently does... nothing. Near the end of the film, with everything falling into place, it starts to leak... and the [[RuleOfThree film's final shot]] is of it flooding the kitchen.
