* UnderminedByReality: The show's happy-go-lucky nature gets a little tarnished when you hear the band members mention how they were worked like dogs the entire time, and how they were always tired and jet-lagged from shuttling back and forth from the US (where the show filmed) to the UK (where they were performing concerts.)

S Club 7 were a pop band that formed at the end of the 90s, following in the footsteps of mixed groups like ''Music/{{Steps}}'', and went on to achieve worldwide success. Their first single "Bring It All Back" brought them instant popularity and they were heavily marketed as "the next big thing" for kids with a TV show (similar in style to The Monkees) as well as various TV specials.

* BuffySpeak: In the movie the group discuss the possibility that the clones are 'pop-bots'.



* TheDanza: In-universe example. When making a film themselves in ''LA 7'', Hannah, Paul, Bradley and Jon play police detectives Spearritt, Cattermole, [=McIntosh=] and Lee.
* DistantReactionShot: The movie's Tina ambushing her clone on stage and grabbing her microphone is given one of these, from the outside of the venue.



* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Some episodes of ''Miami 7'' were a bit odd, specifically the one where they get sent back in time to the 1970s. They also frequently make lightning flash whenever they slap hands. There's also random moments in episodes where they do the haka to intimidate Howard and Jo gets carried off by a hurricane. The rest of the shows kept things to a more realistic sitcom formula.

** The group's first couple of singles emphasized equality, with all the members getting lines in. Starting with "Two In A Million", Jo took lead vocals and was primarily the lead singer for most of their singles afterwards. "Natural" and "Don't Stop Movin'" are the only singles not to have Jo on lead vocals.



* GenreShift: The TV show was fairly realistic but the movie veered into children's fantasy with a plot about an evil scientist cloning various pop singers.

* GenreShift: The TV show was fairly realistic but the movie veered into children's fantasy with a plot about an evil scientist cloning various pop singers. Earlier on, the tie-in S Club style magazines would occasionally feature a fantasy story - such as the band getting sent back in time to Queen Elizabeth I's court or a witch turning Bradley into a girl.



* HufflepuffHouse: In-universe when ''LA 7'' has the group trying to make a movie. They cast Rachel and Jo as the bank robbers, while Hannah, Jon and Bradley play the cops. Tina plays a dancer busking on the street, who has no lines.



* MistakenForAnImposter: In the movie, the real members of the group are jailed for impersonating themselves. Of course this is quite justified by S Club getting advertised prominently on tour in America, and the cloned!Alistair putting in a call about impersonators in Barcelona.

* Joanne "Jo" O'Meara - took lead vocals more often than any of the others and was widely regarded as the best singer. She attempted to go solo after the band split but a huge racism scandal on ''Celebrity Big Brother'' ruined her reputation and she suffered a mental breakdown. Right now she has shaken off the controversy and is a mother.
* Rachel Stevens - probably second in line to Jo and was heavily marketed as the GirlNextDoor of the band. She took lead vocals quite often and went on to have a fairly successful solo career after the band split. She later competed on Season 6 of ''Series/StrictlyComeDancing'' and placed second.
* Bradley [=McIntosh=] - the most prominent male member of the band and also a twofer TokenMinority. He attempted to have a music career but he has remained below the radar.
* Hannah Spearitt - pushed as the cutest one of the band and was hired mainly for her acting on the TV show and has arguably had the most success after the split, having landed a prominent role on the show ''Series/{{Primeval}}''.
* Jon Lee - the boyish member of the band. Like Hannah, he was more of an actor and went on to have a career in the West End after the band split. In 2010, he publicly came out as gay, though claimed everyone else had known for years.
* Tina Barrett - the dancer of the group and the one who really nobody knows what happened to. Known to have choreographed many of the band's routines. Attempted a solo comeback in 2012 that was only promoted in [[FanService men's mags]].
* Paul Cattermole - the first person to leave the group (it was renamed "S Club" after that) and joined a Nu-Metal band. Was romantically linked to Hannah for a while.

Yet before they've had a chance to contact the others, they're kidnapped and Jon remarks "Gaughan's gonna clone us again" when he should have no idea who Gaughan is or that they've been cloned in the first place. Then later on when they meet Gaughan, Rachel says "are you the one who bought the knickers off the internet" when she shouldn't know that. Then there's the moment when the band are watching "live" footage of their clones performing in LA...except it's archive footage from the S Club Carnival tour when Paul was still in the band. So the band don't comment on why there's a seventh member of the band onstage or why Jo, Jon and Hannah all have different hairstyles (shorter). Then the same footage is shown again later in the movie and is still supposed to be a live show.
