** Although Elle's original case for him being gay was that he didn't respond to the 'Bend and Snap'. The effeminacy was just supporting her claim. As to that, Warner himself has a point, in that Elle can't simply base her assumption on the 'bend and snap' - "we need a defence, not a dance move!"

** Warren taking out Elle at the beginning to a nice dinner, only to break up with her instead of proposing. He sent all the wrong kinds of signals for such a dramatic and heart-breaking occasion, especially in a public place and only realizes his mistake when she starts crying, making a scene and asking WasitAllALie Elle for good reason calls him a "bonehead" by the film's end.

* WhatAnIdiot: Chutney at the trial. On one hand, had she claimed to be ''literally anywhere else'', she probably would've gotten Brooke put in prison and gotten off scot-free herself. On the other hand, she had to give an alibi that could be backed up. She was obviously in the house at the time of the murder and had to come up with an excuse for why she didn't hear a gunshot. (Though, of course, listening to music and having headphones in would've been a perfectly believable excuse.)

* HarsherInHindsight: In-universe, the entirety of "So Much Better" becomes this when it emerges that Callahan only chose Elle as an intern because of her looks.

** Averted with Vivian, she's almost as pretty as Elle is and in most media her preppy wardrobe and bitchy personality (initially at least) would give her this. However in this movie, she is as pretty as she is Elle even says that while she could use cosmetics she definitely sees Warner's attraction to her.

* AcceptableTargets: Blondes. Elle does try to fight against these "blondes are dumb" stereotype once she gets in high gear, but her blonde sorority friends are air-headed through and through.

* AcceptableTargets: Blondes. Elle does try to fight against these "blondes are dumb" stereotype once she gets in high gear, but her blonde sorority friends are air-headed through and through. She does have an air-headed brunette friend to balance things out a little.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The second film has the scene where Elle discovers Bruiser's mother being tested on. She angrily knocks on the door and a man tells her he can't let her in since he doesn't have the key - because he swallowed the key once and it became a NeverLiveItDown moment for him. It's random, insignificant and is never referenced again.



* HateSink: Enid is a StrawFeminist who bullies [[ShrinkingViolet David]] and is rude to Elle. However she is shown applauding Elle later on in the film, implying she too was won over like Vivian.



* HollywoodHomely: Chutney. She's played by Creator/LindaCardellini (although the frizzy perm and dour attitude didn't do her any favors.)

* RonTheDeathEater: Some assume that Brooke was actually conning people with her workouts, missing the part where Elle says they do work. Likely [[spoiler: Brooke's liposuction]] was brought on by paranoia at being married to a man who had a history of divorcing his wives.



* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Some viewers find Brooke to be this, viewing her use of cosmetic surgery to be a bit unethical given her image.

** Elle herself in the first sequel. She essentially throws away her job at an established practice all because her dog's mother can't come to her wedding.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: There are actually two versions of "Ireland" floating around - one that's used normally, and one that was written specifically for English productions, though some American productions still use it. Fans of the original lyrics (or those that just heard the original first) find the difference quite jarring, and don't like it much.
