* OneSceneWonder: Well, technically a ''Two''-Scene Wonder; Creator/GeenaDavis (in her film debut) as the sexy, underwear-clad costar sharing Dorothy's dressing room.
* RetroactiveRecognition:
** One of Creator/GeenaDavis' earliest roles as "Dorothy"'s castmate.
** A pre-''[[Series/TheGoldenGirls Golden Girls]]'' Estelle Getty has a bit part as one of the couples seen dancing late in the film, and is pretty recognizable.
* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: In-universe, this is very much Jeff's philosophy towards his playwriting.
-->'''Jeff''': I don't like it when people come up to me after my plays and say, "I really dug your message, man." Or, "I really dug your play, man, I cried." You know. I like it when people come up to me the next day, or a week later, and they say, "I saw your play. What happened?"
* ValuesDissonance: Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as other comedies in which the plot hinges on a cishetero man pretending to be a woman (we're looking at you, ''[[Film/AceVenturaPetDetective Ace Ventura]]''). Still, with the rise of visibility for transgender people, many of whom are frequently dogged with accusations of "pretending" to be a different gender, it's a little harder to find humor in this premise.
