* ContrivedCoincidence: The Bluebonnet Ball is the very same evening as the championship roller derby match. In the novel this was arranged by the fire-marshal bust seen in the movie causing the date of the championship to be moved by a week.

Expanded in the book; a love of indie music is one of the marks of Bliss' identity.

Added DiffLines:

* JumpedAtTheCall: Bliss is quite willing to go the extra mile to achieve her goals.


Added DiffLines:

* NotSoDifferent: While her ambitions (athletics vs. beauty) are different from her mother's, Bliss has inherited more of her mother's drive than her father's easygoing, conflict-averse nature.

Added DiffLines:

* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Bliss and Pash. Bliss is very new to the sport and so likely has not found someone she feels strongly enough about to be her derby wife, her team act more as surrogate mothers to their very young teammate.

The film stars Creator/EllenPage as a 17-year old reluctant beauty pageant contestant named Bliss Cavendar in Bodeen, Texas, who discovers and falls in love with the Austin RollerDerby circuit. She goes to roller derby tryouts and gets selected for the Hurl Scouts, the worst team in the league. But with Bliss's amazing speed and coach Razor's playbook, they might just be able to challenge the Holy Rollers, the top team in the league, and maybe even win the championship.

Added DiffLines:

* TimeMarchesOn: You can make a drinking game of the rules of roller derby that have changed between the 2007 setting of the film and the present day, and get quite sloshed by the end of it.

* ActorAllusion: Maggie tells Bliss (Creator/EllenPage) that [[{{Juno}} having a kid changes everything.]] Bliss smirks in response. She also claims to be 22 when she is actually 17, alluding to Ellen Page's very youthful looks.



* DawsonCasting: Twenty-two year old Ellen Page playing seventeen year old Bliss (who pretends to be twenty-two in order to get on the roller derby team, hilariously enough).



* NamesTheSame: Bliss shares her field name, Babe Ruthless, with a monster from ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers''. It's also the name of an actual Roller Derby skater.
