YMMV / Get Over It

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: It's mentioned that Dr Oates has a wife. Do they just have an Awful Wedded Life because of his attitude? Or is he actually gay, and she's The Beard. Jessica mentions her using a slur on the phone. Perhaps it was the F-word?
  • Crowning Music of Awesome:
    • The Cover of "September" played over the credits.
    • Also "Dream of Me", Kelly's song from the play. Kirsten Dunst has a beautiful singing voice.
  • Ear Worm: The music from the overly cheesy school play.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Kirsten Dunst filmed this movie around the same time as Spider-Man. There she got to be on the other side of an unrequited love triangle. At first anyway.
    • Dr Forest Oates says to Jessica - "how do you get dressed in the morning? Do you have people come in while you just lie in state?" - and Kelly walks in just as he says this. A few years later Kirsten Dunst stars in Marie Antoinette, which has a memorable scene where she can't get dressed until the entire household touches her garments.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Dr Oates is a Prima Donna Director who treats most people like crap, but it's hard not to feel a little bit sorry for him when you see flashbacks that show he never made it as a director. He's legitimately happy when he hears applause for his play at the end.
  • Narm Charm: The music and choreography for the play is terrible. But it's also So Bad, It's Good. Bonus points for the Totally Radical nature of it.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Dora Lynn, the biggest and most disastrous clutz known to mankind. She only has one major sequence in the early part of the film, and doesn't reappear until the end. But she's one of the funniest characters in the movie.
  • Signature Scene: The "Dream of Me" scene is the most remembered part of the movie.
  • Retroactive Recognition: One of Kelly's friends is played by Mila Kunis, and one of Allison's by Zoe Saldana.
