* DesignatedHero: Robbie is presented by the film as a plucky, charming kid who never gives up on his love of his babysitter, even when the odds are stacked against him. Unfortunately, his love quest involves constantly following the girl around badgering her to date him, staging elaborate displays of affection that make her a laughing stock, acting like she's cheating on him when he finds out she likes someone else, and even turning his valedictorian speech into a passive aggressive rant about not believing in love anymore because a crush turned him down. Add in the fact that this comes to light because she caught him masturbating to her, which he has [[TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior absolutely no embarrassment about]], and how he truly seems to believe he's [[EntitledToHaveYou entitled to a relationship]] with her because he's "nice", and many people end up seeing him as a CreepyChild StalkerWithACrush. The fact that he never learns a lesson about respecting people's wishes and not making them feel uncomfortable, and instead [[spoiler: gets rewarded for his behavior with nude photographs of his crush]] makes it even harder to root for him.
** To be fair, he does apologise to her for making her feel uncomfortable and says that he's not going to pursue her anymore. At least, not until they're both a bit older.
** Plus the title of the film is not "Sensible And Reasonable Things I Did." The whole idea is decent people do dumb things when in love.

him. Slightly mitigated by him apologising to her for making her feel uncomfortable and says saying that he's not going to pursue her anymore. At least, not until they're both a bit older.

for now, but still.

*** As for [[spoiler: Jacob's conquests returning to the bar they probably do but he never seems to suggest he's going for anything but a one night stand from the beginning so they have little reason to go back to talk to him.]]

** In his defence though, he's only 13, hasn't got the experience needed to charm girls that Jacob has and had just witnessed his father's big romantic gesture explode in his face.
** Yeah no, he needs professional help. Poor Jessica, she was being harassed and got NO HELP, she needs a hug.



** Hannah got drunk and rebounded with Jacob because of an unrequited crush.
