* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While the film doesn't pull any punches on how bad Julianne is, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZT8ix-lfXs&list=PL5CC44F2C10A8415C&index=3 the gang of Cracked's After Hours]] are quick to point out that Michael is no better. He's keeping his young fiance from finishing college, spends a lot of time with Julianne alone where it seems like he's flirting, and acts very jealous and possessive of Julianne when he believes George is her boyfriend.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Rupert Everett steals the show as PetHomosexual George.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Ladies, you don't need a physically fulfilling relationship to be happy; your PetHomosexual is more than willing to be your pseudo-boyfriend.[[note]]Blame focus testing for this one, the original ending had Julianne meet a new guy implying she'll at least get something out of the deal. But the audience didn't like it.[[/note]]
