* ParentalNeglect: Ray's mother cares little for her daughter's emotional wellbeing, preferring to simply fund whatever happens to keep her complacent, and misinterprets Ray's TroublingUnchildlikeBehaviour as a sign of maturity. By the epilogue, thanks to a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech from Molly, it appears that she has started to make amends.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: The reason Molly is such a [[ManChild Woman Child]] is because she never received closure for her parents' passing, and getting lost in a party animal lifestyle is her way of keeping the grief at bay.


Added DiffLines:

* SpoiledSweet: Molly is vastly out of touch with the world outside her wealth, but she's still a friendly woman who cares for people.

* CastingCouch: [[spoiler:Neal got his record deal by sleeping with Ray's mom.]]



* ManicPixieDreamGirl : A bit of a subversion in that the film deals mostly with the women's perspective. Molly could be this to the burgeoning rock star, but their relationship is doomed until they both grow up.
