** Played straight with [[MisunderstoodLonerWithAHeartOfGold Leonard]]. Though he seems to be a decent guy, it's implied he used ''his'' wish from Aqua to gain the attention of a woman he's been interested in, ''without'' considering her say in the matter. Unlike with Hailey, he's never called out on this.

* LesYay: Claire and Hailey. And how! They sleep in the same bed and spend the whole movie not wanting to be separated, acting like StarcrossedLovers. Also both of them and Aquamarine. At the end, [[FriendshipMoment they even say that they love her]].

to:

* DesignatedHero: Done on purpose with Hailey. She plans to use Aqua's wish to force her mother to stay in town. Then she eventually realises that it's her mother's dream to go to work in Australia - and learns AnAesop.
* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: After [[spoiler: Raymond says he doesn't love Aquamarine]] her father conjures up a huge storm to take her back to the sea. Claire and Hailey swim out - Claire ignoring her fear of drowning - to save her. She asks why and they reply "because we love you, Aqua". [[spoiler: Having been taught about the nature of love now, Aqua's father calls off the storm]].

* NarmCharm: Aqua's attempts to dance to "Island in the Sun" are so terrible they're absolutely {{Adorkable}}.
* SpecialEffectFailure: The conversation between Raymond and Aqua in the sea is a pretty obvious green screen effect.

* PragmaticAdaptation: The plot developments between the book and movie differ greatly: [[spoiler: The book's narrative implies it takes place on the Northeast Seaboard, and Claire, not Hailey, is moving to Florida to live with her grandparents (as her parents are deceased as in the movie). Aside from the main four, all of the characters in the movie including AlphaBitch Cecelia are completely absent. The plot revolves around the conflict between Aquamarine wanting to meet Raymond and Hailey and Claire trying to return her to sea before she succumbs to the elements and the Capri Bleach Club is closed and demolished.]] Also, [[OurMermaidsAreDifferent the movie treats mermaids]] differently from the book: [[spoiler: Aquamarine cannot transform at all; Hailey and Claire move her around on a wheelchair for her date with Raymond inside the beach club's abandoned cafeteria, but she's otherwise confined to the swimming pool.]]
