* GoldDigger: Strongly hinted of Leta Fox. Outright invoked by his half-sister and her lover.



* MrSandmanSequence: "Keep Your Sunny Side Up" montage. Played straight as it is a HopeSpot, "then the roof fell in."

%%* FreudianExcuse

to:

%%* FreudianExcuse* FreudianExcuse: Invoked when Zelig claims Freud rejected his idea of expanding penis envy to men as well.


Added DiffLines:

* InnocentlyInsensitive: Well, Zelig is hypnotized into being BrutallyHonest. He goes on and on about Eudora being a LethalChef with pancakes.

* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Pretty much, Zelig's character/FreudianExcuse is this trope taken UpToEleven. Because of his desperate need to fit in, Zelig started out by pretending to have read MobyDick when he hadn't, and this spiraled into mirroring the professions and even appearances of those around him.

A 1983 Creator/WoodyAllen film, ''Zelig'' is a {{mockumentary}} set during TheRoaringTwenties and into TheGreatDepression period, concerning the title character, a "human chameleon"- a man who shapeshifts to fit in with those around him- and his encounters with the celebrities of the day. Zelig ultimately comes into contact with Dr. Eudora Nesbitt Fletcher (played by Mia Farrow) who tries to cure him of his uncontrollable shapeshifting. Throughout, commentary on Zelig's life is provided by well-known public intellectuals.
