Older than They Look/Hollywood Old: Examined and played straight. Jacki is 40 and "chasing a teenager's dream" of being a rock star. Some of the drama hinges on her being older than her bandmates and depressed because she never made it as a rock star. However, Gina Gershon (who was 40 at the time of filming) looks better than a lot of 25 year olds.
Rape as Drama: Tracy's boyfriend's rape fantasies and his assault on Sally. Also the basis for their Protest Song "Every Six Minutes."
The Rock Star: Subverted. Jacki went to LA to pursue her dream and never made it.
Riot Grrrl: Mentioned in a discussion between Faith and Jacki.
