* AdaptationDisplacement: Few people seem to know that the movie was an adaptation of a novel.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The pool scene. It breaks the flow of the movie, accomplishes little narratively, is very fantastical in a cinematographic sense while the rest of the movie is fairly realistic, and basically exists to fill screen time.
* BrokenBase: The Oliver subplot. Some find it completely unnecessary and adding nothing to the overall film (see below). Others like that he deconstructs the SatelliteLoveInterest trope.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Bliss knocks [[BitchInSheepsClothing Corbi]] off a railing after she and her boyfriend make fun of her and Pash.
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: At the very end, when Bliss' mom reads her daughter's Bluebonnet Ball speech. [[spoiler:It turns out that Bliss names her mom as the person she admires the most.]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Bloody Holly due to being played by cult favourite Creator/ZoeBell and quite a bit of {{Fanservice}} coming from her.
* HilariousInHindsight: The amount of LesYay detailed blow, now that Ellen Page is open about being a lesbian.
* LesYay:
** Eva Destruction and Rosa Sparks. Ari Graynor said she played the character as a lesbian seductress.
** A little between Pash and Bliss, who are bullied by gaybashing schoolmates for their close and exclusive friendship, and are shown to be quite touchy feely with one another.
** In general, the film is tailored to the female eye, being a story about a girl finding her place in the world, and mainly aimed for female viewers. The point of the main character's relationship is essentially "boyfriends actually stink so stick with your ladies".
** If you listen to Eva and Rosa's conversation, they flirt with "there's some stuff I'm pretty sure I could teach you". How does the final encounter between Bliss and Iron Maven go? Maven, who has been relatively antagonistic towards Bliss the whole film, compliments one of Bliss' moves and Bliss responds that she'll teach her sometime. If the subtext of the line is consistent, that would definitely shed an interesting light on many interactions between [[FoeYay Bliss and Maven]], especially when the food-fight scene ends with the two of them rolling around on the floor and Maven laughing as she's pinning Bliss down. It may be that this film is intended more for the gay audience than most people realize.
* OneSceneWonder:
** Creator/JimmyFallon as the over the top announcer Johnny 'Hot Tub' Rocket. He only appears in the bout scenes with brief snippets of dialogue, but he's wildly entertaining.
** Drew Barrymore also has very few lines, but Smashley Simpson is such a fun BoisterousBruiser that you still remember her.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Kristen Wiig was known for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' at the time but it was right before her real breakout role in ''{{Film/Bridesmaids}}''.
* RomanticPlotTumor: Bliss' romance with Oliver has very little bearing on the rest of the plot--it gives her a reason to ditch Pash, and a reason to reconcile with her mom, and that's about it. Though it does provide a neat deconstruction of the SatelliteLoveInterest.
