* AwesomeMusic: Perhaps the best use of {{Enya}} in a film.
* HeyItsThatVoice: Sara's mum is played by [[MontyPython Terry Jones]].
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Somewhat mature example. But Sara is a tuba playing journalist, who understands how absurd L.A is.
** Subverted with [=SanDeE*=]. Although she comes off as this at first, and certainly makes a try at it; she doesn't really make any significant change to Harris's life. Eventually, the relationship is treated as just a bad rebound thing; which temporarily got in the way of a real relationship with Sara.
* OneSceneWonder: Several, but Creator/PatrickStewart's Mr. Perdue takes the cake.
--> '''Mr. Perdue:''' "You think with a financial statement like this you can have the ''duck''?!"
* RecycledPremise: The movie's basic plot is similar to ''AMidsummerNightsDream''.
