** The heroine's love interest [[SatelliteLoveInterest didn't have much personality]], and [[ShaggyDogStory the romance ended]] before the film's climax[[hottip:*:because the guy had cheated on the heroine]], making the whole thing [[RomanticPlotTumor feel like needless filler]]. However, upon closer inspection, the romantic subplot was intended to ''[[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]]'' the concept of a SatelliteLoveInterest. To wit: guy digs heroine, heroine gets lovestruck and starts dating guy, a TwoPersonPoolParty ensues...''then'' the heroine finds out the hard way that it was all an act and the guy only wanted her for sex.

* This troper saw ''WhipIt'' and regarded the romantic subplot with ''plenty'' of disdain. The heroine's love interest [[ShallowLoveInterest didn't have much personality]], and [[ShaggyDogStory the romance ended]] before the film's climax[[hottip:* :because the guy had cheated on the heroine]], making the whole thing [[RomanticPlotTumor feel like needless filler]]. Then, while editing the TVTropes page for the movie, I had a revelation: the romantic subplot was intended to ''[[DeconstructedTrope deconstruct]]'' the concept of a ShallowLoveInterest (i.e. guy digs heroine, heroine gets lovestruck and starts dating guy, TwoPersonPoolParty ensues...''then'' the heroine finds out the hard way that it was all an act and the guy only wanted her for sexual favors). TVTropesWillEnhanceYourLife, no doubt about it. -Tropers/DynamiteXI
