* UnintentionallySympathetic: Patty's dislike of Dewey for some. It's never said whether or not Patty actually lives in the apartment too but she does admittedly have a right to be annoyed at the situation.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Patty's dislike of Dewey for some. It's never said confirmed whether or not Patty actually lives in the apartment too with them, but she does admittedly have a right it's not unreasonable for her to be annoyed at with how much Dewey takes advantage of Ned. On the situation.other hand, Ned doesn't seem to mind and she walks all over him just as much.



* TheWoobie : Poor Ms. Mullins. When all the teachers are yelling at her for the Dewey debacle, she leaves the room and goes to the stairs...to put herself in the corner. Aww!

** Ned. The poor guy is just trying to make a living as a teacher when his roommate ''steals his identity'' as part of a get-rich-quick scheme. Meanwhile, he lets his girlfriend walk all over him because he's afraid he'll never get another chance with a woman.

* ValuesDissonance: The entire character of [[QueerPeopleAreFunny Billy "Fancy Pants."]] At the time, the only one who had any real umbrige with it was the screenwriter, who is openly bi and has a gay father, but general audiences wouldn't had minded. Over a decade later, it seems needlessly cruel. The musical doesn't necessarily fix this, but at the very least depicts Billy as a character and not a punchline (helps that it's on Broadway, as LGBTQ-friendly a venue as you can imagine).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: While not outright vulgar, there's a fair share of light swearing (mostly from the kids, no less!) and more than a few references to sex and drugs. Its PG-13 rating is a light one, at best.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: As noted under IdiotPlot below, the other teachers could easily have exposed Dewey's ruse. So it's possible that Ms Mullins is merely finally cracking from the pressure of her job and is just in complete denial about the whole thing.

* ValuesDissonance: The gay jokes at Billy's expense. Wouldn't have raised many eyebrows in the early 2000s but wouldn't be allowed in the film these days. Mike White disowned the film for this reason. The musical doesn't necessarily fix this, but they make sure Billy's still a character and not just a walking stereotype (helps that it's on Broadway, as LGBTQ-friendly a venue as you can imagine).

* DracoInLeatherPants: People tend to ignore Patty's abuse of Ned and think of her as a DesignatedVillain. Although Dewey ''is'' mooching off Ned at the beginning, Ned only gives him an ultimatum because Patty wants it. Ned doesn't appear to have a problem with Dewey there and he only orders him to move out after he's crossed the MoralEventHorizon by impersonating him. Essentially neither Dewey nor Patty are meant to be in the right.

Added DiffLines:

* MostWritersAreMale : A MUCH more [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids age-appropriate]] and accurate term than "groupies" would have been [[InsistentTerminology "merch girls."]] These are the almost AlwaysFemale hangers-on, sometimes the girlfriends of an indie band but also friends and family members, who sell t-shirts and CDs, take admission and concession money, and do the grunt work like hanging up posters for a band.

Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker:
**The additional backstory the kids get leads to a real tear-worthy musical number in act one, as we see them all trying to be heard by their too-busy, overbearing, or unaware parents in "If Only You Would Listen". This song gets an even more tear-jerking reprise in the second act, as the kids, trying to get Dewey to come with them to the Battle of the Bands, tell him that he was the first one to really hear them.
** Rosalie Mullins gets her own tear-jerking moment in the musical too. Instead of just getting tipsy and jamming to Edge of Seventeen in her quasi-date with Dewey at the dive bar, she gets a heartbreaking number about how she's lost the music and joy in her life, and how Dewey has reminded her a little bit of what it used to be.

* HilariousInHindsight: Dewey calls ''Theatre/{{Cats}}'' his least favorite musical. Its creator Andrew Lloyd Webber did the film's stage adaptation, [[TakeThatUs and even kept that line in.]]
