Added DiffLines:

* DeliberatelyMonochrome: The film. Not only does it serve to create a stark {{Chiaroscuro}} setting, but it also allows Martha to talk about having green eyes when Elizabeth Taylor has famously PurpleEyes.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Fanservice}}: Elizabeth Taylor seems dowdy, but when she changes into her "Sunday best", she shows just how sexy a middle-aged woman can be.

Added DiffLines:

* FakeWeakness: George. He seems wimpy and over-matched compared to his loud, shrewish wife, but he proves that she's no match for ''him'', let alone Nick and Honey, whom he dominates almost effortlessly.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Honey, along with HiddenDepths. She figures out long before Nick that [[spoiler: George and Martha's son is imaginary]], and goes from being frightened of pregnancy and motherhood to insisting, "I want a baby. I want a ''child''."
