* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments: The ending when [[spoiler:Lucy tells Peter exactly when she fell in love with Jack]].
** Also, when Lucy spends Christmas with the family.
* HollywoodHomely: Lucy. She's not exactly supposed to be ugly, but the movie does a good job of making SandraBullock of all people look like a mousey, shy Chicago transportation employee.
** Which is probably closer to real shy people who might be really attractive with the right attitude and dress. Lucy is super awkward and wears awful clothes the entire time, which makes sense with someone with her character's level of self-confidence.
* WinBackTheCrowd: This movie along with ''Film/{{Speed}}'' is credited with helping to relaunch SandraBullock's career in TheNineties.
* TheWoobie: Lucy. It's hard not to want to give her a hug when she confesses to (the currently comatose) Peter just how lonely and unhappy she is.
