** The marble scene in the beginning is taken almost directly from a part in TedDekker's book ''Blink'', a book where the main character can see potential futures. When he's about to be arrested, he rolls a rubber ball down the hall, timing it so that it will bounce off the right walls, causing a distraction so he and his {{Love Interest}} can get away. Could have been a {{Shout Out}} though.

* FridgeHorror: Plenty.
** Carl has two other kids. God only knows what kind of Hell ''their'' lives must be.
** Mary hears that Carl died of AIDS, but she thinks she can't get it because it only spreads through anal sex. She's wrong, but the fact that she has no reaction suggests that she knew [[DepravedBisexual Carl was having unprotected sex with men.]]



* {{Wangst}}: Largely averted. Though she has very good reason to angst, Precious is usually [[AngstWhatAngst fairly calm]] about her circumstances, only breaking down once during the movie.

* CriticalBacklash: The film has a 23% in Website/RottenTomatoes and is badly seen by fans who accuse it of being unoriginal, but Website/InternetMoviesDatabase has it with thrice that score and many reviews which support its entertaining value.

* RelationshipWritingFumble: If the reviews and fan reactions are anything to go by, whatever relationship thirteen year old Cassie and twenty three year old Nick were supposed to have wasn't what the audience saw.
** The ClingyJealousGirl behavior once Kira arrives and that skirt aren't helping.

The worst offender was the hotel scene when Cassie leaves, "powers her use" by getting drunk, then returns to curse out Nick's actual love interest Kira, and falls asleep in a provocative position.

**** Because that's where he ''starts''. It's practically his only scene and it's how we're introduced both to his character and to Precious herself. You can't cross a line if you ''started'' on the other side; Mary, for all her other monstrous qualities, is shown to have (however briefly) actually loved Precious very much when she was a little girl.
