This film provides examples of:

  • Alpha Bitch: Subverted. Several characters, like Arlene and Cynthia, are set up as Alpha Bitches, but are instead given interesting characterizations. Matt even sets up Arlene with his best friend, Wendy, who came out of the closet to him at the end of the film.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: After being taught the basics of dressing like a woman by Wendy, Matt gets hit on by both of the other male characters in the film.
  • Big Blackout
  • Spiritual Sequel: 100 Women by the same director is also set in the world of a college-age man tries to find the woman he fell in love with and grows by learning from a number of different women where she lives. Both protagonists have a male friend (roommate then cousin) who is sex obsessed and hooks up with one of the teaching women.
  • Straw Feminist: Play horribly straight.
  • Suddenly Sexuality: Girl Next Door Wendy reveals to Matt at the end of the film that she is a lesbian. He then sets her up with Tomboy Arlene. This brings almost nothing to the characterization of the two and seems entirely done to set up a Lady and the Tramp style kiss between them.
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: Francesca is sexually assaulted and almost raped by Crick, but she bites off the tip of his tongue instead. When Crick comes back at the end of the film, Matt gets up the courage to admit that he was Francesca and proves it by showing that he kept the tip of the tongue preserved to be used as evidence and then reattached. It also inspires other girls from the dorm to come forward, so Crick is less worried about the fact that Francesca is a guy than by his impending arrest.
  • Wholesome Crossdresser: When Matt discusses his trouble finding his mystery girl, his female best friend suggests crossdressing. He dives right into it with all the enthusiasm of the rest of his intergender musings. When he realised that "Francesca" could get far more emotionally close to the girls around than he could, he decides to keep doing it.
