* AdaptationalHeroism: In the novel, Serena [[AllOfTheOtherReindeer refuses to interact with Louis]] because of his disability, and Louis wins her over simply by revealing that he can play the trumpet. In the film, Serena is much more sympathetic to Louie and a {{jerkass}} rival named Boyd is added instead.
