* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While the film doesn't pull any punches on how bad Julianne is, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZT8ix-lfXs&list=PL5CC44F2C10A8415C&index=3 the gang of Cracked's After Hours]] are quick to point out that Michael is no better. He's keeping his young fiance from finishing college, spends a lot of time with Julianne alone where it seems like he's flirting, and acts very jealous and possessive of Julianne when he believes George is her boyfriend.



* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Ladies, you don't need a physically fulfilling relationship to be happy; your PetHomosexual is more than willing to be your pseudo-boyfriend.[[note]]Blame focus testing for this one, the original ending had Julianne meet a new guy implying she'll at least get something out of the deal. But the audience didn't like it.[[/note]]

* UnfortunateImplications: George, a homosexual, has the role of being Julliane's fake-boyfriend so she can hook up with a straight man. However, he tells her that his idea is stupid and is proven right. He comes off as a BeleagueredAssistant in that he has a life of his own, including a partner. He was only going to make a brief swing by Chicago to check up on her, because he had to go to "this thing" at Werner's parents' house in the Hamptons, but decides to stay when he sees the depth of the mayhem unfolding.

* UnfortunateImplications: You're a gay guy in a romantic comedy? You ONLY exist to hook up your white straight girl friend with the boy of her dreams, even if you think the whole deal is freaking stupid and you're actually right!
** In fairness, George is cast as a BeleagueredAssistant in that he actually has a life of his own, including a partner. One of the funnier scenes in the movie has him and his partner Werner hosting a dinner party while Julianne is calling from Chicago, frantically shrieking a message into his answering machine. He was also only going to make a brief swing by Chicago to check up on her, because he had to go to "this thing" at Werner's parents' house in the Hamptons. But decides to stay when he sees the depth of the mayhem unfolding.
