* FridgeBrilliance: Anyone familiar with genetics is capable of guessing that [[spoiler: Bill]] is Sophie's father, as confirmed by WordOfGod, because he's the only blond of Sophie's three possible fathers. As blond hair is a recessive trait which Sophie shares with her mother, the other two would be pretty unlikely.

* [[HeReallyCanAct She Really Can Sing]]: Amanda Seyfried surprised a lot of people. In fact, one of the reasons she was cast was because she could pull off a high note during "I Have a Dream" ("I believe in angels..."). Her performance here would later be heavily credited for earning her the role of Cosette in the film adaptation of ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' four years later.
* RomanceOnTheSet: Amanda Seyfriend and Dominic Cooper dated for two years, but broke up due to him staying in the UK while she stayed in the United States.
* {{Scrappy}}: For many people, Skye's controlling personality and constant whining, while also being probably the least entertaining personality in the movie, helps him qualify for this position.

** For others, this 'honour' goes to Sophie, for her utter stupid plan in order to determine who her father is, so he can walk her down the aisle... which not only ends up going nowhere, but it's rendered useless TWICE by Sophie herself, first with her asking her mother to walk her instead and then by deciding not to get married at all. For those people, Skye's frustration with Sophie, who's shown herself to be an arrogant, self-involved dimwit, id perfectly understandable.

** The thing about genetics and blonde hair being a recessive trait is as good as irrelevant, seeing as how plenty of brunette parents have blonde children, and that Stellan Skarsgård's hair is naturally brown, but has lightened with age.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Sleep with three guys and don't know which is your baby's father? No, don't take a paternity test, wait a few years and have fun singing about it.

** DNA tests didn't exist in the late 60s, when she got pregnant. They could only do a blood type match, and if any of the men shared a common one (or Sophie had the same one as her mother) it wouldn't tell them who her father was. The question was sidestepped in the film version, where one of the fathers says they could get a test done, but they didn't really need to know.
