* MemeticMutation: The bizarre ending of the trailer, "Switch, Jimmy Smits."
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: As Roger Ebert noted quite well, the film sidesteps every opportunity to explore the sexual politics of Steve/Amanda's situation, and whether he/she can be considered gay or straight. Her attempt at a lesbian relationship is cut off by her old self being such a homophobe that she literally faints at the idea, and her one piece of straight sex happens during a drunken blackout, negating any need for discussion between them. In the end, we're left with a bunch of mindless slapstick without any interest in actually saying anything about the subjects it touches on. It's all pretty baffling considering Blake Edwards had earlier reveled in this kind of material in ''VictorVictoria''.

* HoYay: Hal/Kai in particular. There is also Hiki/Kagiyama, among others. Though Hal is a walking HoYay magnet, due to him being TheCharmer as well as being BiTheWay...

* HoYay: Hal/Kai in particular. There is also Hiki/Kagiyama, among others. Though Hal is can be considered BiTheWay which makes him a walking HoYay magnet, due magnet. He and Kai are extremely close, to him being TheCharmer as well as being BiTheWay...the point where there is no evidence denying that they could be an item. Hiki/Kagiyama also counts, especially in some of the official doujinshi, and there are many other examples throughout the series and its side materials.
