* MethodActing: When Annette slaps Sebastian in the face [[spoiler: during their breakup scene]], the slap wasn't supposed to happen. Both Ryan Phillippe and Creator/ReeseWitherspoon became caught up in the intensity of the scene that she impulsively slapped him. Sebastian's look of shock was genuine [[spoiler: and Ryan even threw up after the scene was finished filming]].

* MeaningfulName:
** Sebastian's surname, Valmont, consists of the French words ''val'' (literally meaning "vale", the old-fashioned word for "valley") and ''mont'' ("mountain"). Sebastian starts out the movie "high" (cool and arrogant) but by the climax [[BreakTheHaughty has been brought low and made pathetic]].
** Cecile:
*** Kathryn and Sebastian succeed in making Cecile impure - which is ironic, because her name is the French form of "Cecilia" - the Catholic saint who is famously known as "The Incorruptible."[[note]] Her body has not decayed, despite her death occurring nearly two thousand years ago.[[/note]]
*** More irony in that St. Cecilia is the patroness of music. Cecile, by her own admission, is a DreadfulMusician.
