* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Given the gritty nature of the film, it can be hard to root for any of the characters in the cast, up to and including Doug himself.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: Given the gritty nature of the film, it can be hard to root for any of the characters in the cast, up to and including Doug himself. Only Claire is 100% sympathetic.


Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: It's hard not to feel a little bit sorry for Krista, considering she seemed to at least feel something for Doug whereas he was just using her for sex. Blake Lively described her as someone who wanted to escape her situation just like Doug, and hoped he would be her way out. [[spoiler: The last we see of her, she's in the hospital and her daughter has been taken off her]].

* OneSceneWonder: Chris Cooper as Doug's father, Stephen [=MacRay=]. Also, Pete Postlethwaite is on screen for hardly more than 5 minutes, but makes the most of every moment in an intense, genuinely frightening performance as Fergie the Florist.

%%HarsherInHindsight isn't just "The actor dies after his character". It's only this trope if the death had some link to how it appeared on screen.

* HarsherInHindsight: [[spoiler:Fergie's death by GroinAttack becomes a lot harder to watch given that his actor Pete Postlewhaite died shortly after filming. Postlethwaite also had a testicle removed during a previous bout with testicular cancer.]]
