This film provides examples of:
* AlphaBitch: Pretty much everyone at Esther's school.
* BlatantLies / RefugeInAudacity: Sunnie and Esther's "experiment" relies on both
* CallBack: Esther's "introduction" poem
* CloudCuckoolander: Esther and her brother Jacob are this trope in spades
* DisappearedDad: Sunnie's is out of the picture, having apparently gone back to New Zealand
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Cheeseburger" for Esther
* FreeTheFrogs: Poor little Normal.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Jacob gets out of [[spoiler: stabbing his friend with a compass]] by claiming the other kid, and indeed his entire school, is rabidly anti-Semetic. His parents respond by pulling him out of school and putting him in a Jewish school. [[spoiler: This turns out to have made him uber-Jewish, and his parents are visibly annoyed when he makes them wait to start eating to say a berakhah, and grumbling that his roast beef isn't kosher]]
* JerkAss: most of the students at Esther's private school. Missy and the prefect get special attention.
* JewishAndNerdy: Esther and her brother are more Jewish and ''weird''
* OhCrap: Esther, when she realizes that Jacob isn't joking about [[spoiler: stabbing his friend in the head with a compass]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The Slug, the overweight girl with the umbrella (which she uses to fend off being splashed by juice at lunch time) [[spoiler: whom Esther essentially mugs for her raincoat]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Normal the duck chick. [[spoiler: Doesn't save him from being killed for dissection though]]
* WhatTheHellHero: Sunnie to Esther when she [[spoiler: basically mugs the Slug for her raincoat]]
* WhereTheHellIsSpringfield: Averted; it's explicitly stated that Esther's brother goes to Massada College, which is an actual school in Adelaide. The observant will also spot an Adelaide Metro train in the background of one scene.
