YMMV: Happy Go Lucky
  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Opinions on whether Poppy is healthily happy or an annoying maniac vary widely.
  • Award Snub: Despite winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress - Comedy/Musical and sweeping the Los Angeles, New York, and National Society Critics prizes for Best Actress, Sally Hawkins was egregiously left without a nomination for her work on the film. On another note, some found that Eddie Marsan would've made a deserving Supporting Actor contender.
  • Bizarro Episode: Mike Leigh's previous work is much Darker and Edgier.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Scott.
  • The Woobie: Poppy alludes to this trope when she says she wants to give her dance instructor (who just had a meltdown over some shattering recent breakup and had to leave the classroom) a hug. Her friend notes that the instructor probably wouldn't know what to make of it, if one of her students hugged her.
