** Unfortunately this works against Benny's character. His PetTheDog scenes in the second act--where he pays for [[spoiler:Angel's funeral]] and Mimi's stay in rehab, and encourages Roger to get back together with her near the end--were cut from the film, making him purely the villain rather than a member of the group whose life and career took him in a different direction, complicating his relationship with the others while still being their friend. The film arguably suffers for losing this nuance.

Added DiffLines:

*ActuallyPrettyFunny: In the film, nearly every time the camera cuts away to Benny after a joke that he and his father-in-law are the butt of, he's trying to hide his smile. Most obvious during "Over The Moon" and after Maureen moons them during "La Vie Boheme".

* Angel Dumott Schunard: A mischievous, HIV-positive drummer who falls in love with Collins. Debate rages over whether Angel is a[[{{Transgender}} pre-operative trans woman]] or [[DragQueen just likes the clothes]] or gender non-binary, even on this very wiki.

* PairTheSpares: An inter-textual example. In LaBoheme, Colline and Schaunard are the only characters without a romance, so here their equivalent characters are made a couple.

* AdaptationExpansion: Nothing is noted about how Mark or the others will pay for the aftershow party after the one waiter notes that the last time they visited, Mark never paid. In the film version, Angel shoves a bunch of money at the waiter, some of what she had left from her hit on Evita.
