* {{Epic Fail}}; When Samantha aggressivly pounces on him, he originally opposed her, but after a 3 second kiss, he didn't even hesitate to concede (was super gleeful to).
* {{Evil vs Evil}} Downplayed and parodied; Mike and Samantha's face off when she tempts him to discloseing Chris whereabouts. They're not typical villains, just two young, horny idiots.

-> Played by {{Anna Faris}}

* {{All Women Are Lustful}}
** She is very lewd and wanton.
* {{Belligerent Sexual Tension}}
** With Chris and Mike, in very different ways: Samantha's psychotic lust for Chris is one way and, due to her abusive nature, becomes unresolved.

* {{Berserk Button}}: Defy her, dislike her or like someone else, basically anything an overzealous pop parody narcissist would find infuriating.

to:

* {{Berserk Button}}: BerserkButton: Defy her, dislike her or like someone else, basically anything an overzealous pop parody narcissist would find infuriating.infuriating.
* BigDamnKiss: More on Mike's part, but Samantha initiates it after three days of Mike's nonstop lustfulness towards her.
* BrainlessBeauty: Samantha is beautiful and she is very sexy. However, her first scene showcases her stupidity and the film never stops. Somewhat subverted as she's cunningly manipulative with getting her way.
* ComicalOverreacting: Just about anything that would cause a normal person to be happy or angry makes Samantha really hyperkinetic.
* ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind: Mike looks at his reflection in the bathroom cabinet, opens it, closes it and BAM there's Samantha (somehow...how she appeared there in less than a second is unknown) and Mike shrieks with fright as she grabs him.
* DepravedBisexual: Implied - Samantha accidentally kissed a woman on the lips and later admitteds to liking girls.
* DisproportionateReward: Makes out with one of her fans as a quid pro quo. She could've just as easily paid him or hurt him.
* EvilIsSexy: Downplayed - her selfishness and egotism borders on malevolence and seems to enhance her appeal.
* Exposed To The Elements: Averted when outside in the snow, but inside Samantha usually exposes as much PG-appropriate flesh as she desires.
* FemmeFatale: For better or worse, a gorgeous sociopath. She exploits her body to promote her work and exudes a creepy charisma. When being seductive she sounds and looks slightly...scary, which exemplifies her insanity. It's safe to assume Mike's soooo not the first fan/teenage boy she's manipulated through their attraction to her.
* {{Hedonist}}: Samantha is very rich, famous, and self-indulgent.
* HotBlooded: Samantha James is a powder keg of overzealous passion. Rude and fanatic, her tantrums are short and quick but very impactful.
* LecherousLicking: Samantha's immediate response to seeing Chris is to pounce on and obnoxiously French kiss him and saying she wants to lick his skin off. Then, in a heavily drugged state, Samantha licked Chris's cheek with a toothpaste filled mouth. She later Frenches Mike like she did Chris.
* LysistrataGambit: Inverted with Mike - laying an intense pash on the eighteen year old horndog is what got results.
* MotivationalKiss: With Mike. He firstly defied her demands for the first time. With no hesitation she plants a big one on him and, again with no hesitation, he complies.
* MrsRobinson: Downplayed, as she showed minor interest in eighteen year old Mike.
* Narcissist: Samantha's narcissism drives her every scene. Her "everyone loves me/it's all about me" persona is [[UpToEleven full fledged and never wavers]], even at the cost of others' safety (though it's all played for laughs). Samantha's plagued with such boundless, almost supernatural, confidence in herself it's exhausting to be exposed to it. Ever the overzealous, [[GreenEyedMonster psychopathically domineering madwoman]], Chris loving anyone else was enough for her to destroy an entire Christmas party, physically assult Chris and Jaime (destroying the party injured more), threaten to get Chris fired, and presumably steal a car.
* ProudBeauty: Samantha is aware she's hot, to the point she says "I know" when informed.
* PreAsskickingOneLiner: She has a few: "I'm Samantha James, bitch!", pushes Jaime. "That's it, bitch! It's on!", assults a rude crowd member. "Forgive this, asshole!", punches Chris in throat. Parodied - Mike: "I'll never tell you aything!" Samantha: "Oh yeah?", proceeds to make out with him. Not an asskicking, but an act of overpowering someone nonetheless.
* ShamelessSelfPromoter: Regardless of the scene or situation, Samantha manages to make it all about her career, image and pride.
* ShouldersUpNudity: Her strip is precisely framed so we don't see below her chest.
* ShutUpKiss: Hilariously inverted - Samantha kisses Mike to make him talk.
* SmellsSexy: Implied and downplayed; Upon meeting her, Mike seems to sniff Samantha's hair.
* {{Stalker With A Crush}}
** To Chris; crashing his friends Christmas party in spite and letting herself into his L.A house.
* {{Stringing The Hopeless Suitor Along}}: They way Samantha always leaned on the implication of sex towards Mike, but never really put out while knowing of his hankering is both funny and slightly eerie.
* {{The Sociopath}}; Played Straight, Downplayed and Exaggerated but always for laughs: You won't see Samantha kill a person (hopefully) or harm an animal. [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Theft, arson, breaking & entering and destruction of property she'll do]]. She personifies all the traits; Utter indifference to thoughts and emotions of those around her, unless they can serve her somehow. [[AffablyEvil Convincingly polite when neccesery]] but always fused in meerily condescending, god-like complexity.[[MsFanservice CONSTANTLY dawning close-fitting, sexy tops and shorts]] and radiating an alluring yet odd charisma. Topped with a [[AttentionWhore gluttonous jealousy for admiration]] and an [[ItsAllAboutMe arrant contempt for others needs/wants]], Samantha's quite the Christmas villain. She's also fiercely, shamelessly manipulative; Notice scenes when somebody foolishly puts themselves between Samantha and something she wants: she'll either raise her voice or, more dangerously...whisper, before claiming her insane victory two seconds later. She always does!
* {{Toplessness From The Back}}: We see her bare back in a few shots.
* {{Tranquil Fury}}; Mike defies her and she dangerously whispers "Oh yeah" before changing his mind in three seconds. It's funnier than it sounds.
* {{Unstoppable Rage}}: Parodied; She'll bulldoze her way through anything that tries to stop her having her way.
* {{Who Wears Short Shorts}}: In her posters, tv appearances and chronologically to the film, Samantha's pants are exceptionally tiny and tight.
{{Yandere}}
** It's implied heavily that Samantha, in her own psychotic way, thinks she's in love with Chris. Chris not feeling the same defenitly drives her to fury.

!! Mike Brander
-->
Played by Chris Marquette.
* {{A Date With Rosie Palms}}
** To Samantha's sluty posters, multiple times daily.
* {{A Man Is Always Eager}}
** Exploited; Mike made it clear he'd do ANYTHING to have sex with Samantha which she shamelessly used against him twice. He was happy.
* {{All Men Are Perverts}}
** This is true for most men of the film but Samantha later Exploits it with Mike.
* {{Because You Were Nice To Me}}
** Samantha and Chris are the only two characters Mike interacts with (save for barley five seconds with his mum) and while the former makes advances on him, the latter is usually beating him up. Naturally, Samantha got Mike to betray Chris easily.
* {{Badass Boast}} "I'll Never Tell You Anything!!" was his one such boast and due to the following epic failure became funnier.



** More on Mike's part, but Samantha initiates it after three days of Mike's nonstop lustfulness towards her.
* {{Brainless Beauty}}
** Samantha is beautiful and she is very sexy. However, her first scene showcases her stupidity and the film never stops. Somewhat subverted as she's cunningly manipulative with getting her way.

* {{Big Damn Kiss}}


* {{It's All About Me}}: Comically downplayed somewhat; "Me" means "Me leaping into bed with Samantha James" which is literally all he cares about, anything else be dammed. Ninety-five percent of his scenes are him making raunchy advances on the crackbrained pop-star or making it clearthats all he's concerned with. To be fair; Mike is at that age but his mania for Samantha had consumed him, reaching unhealthy status.

[[JustATuesday [[ButForMeItWasTuesday Theft, arson, breaking & entering and destruction of property she'll do]]. She personifies all the traits; Utter indifference to thoughts and emotions of those around her, unless they can serve her somehow. [[AffablyEvil Convincingly polite when neccesery]] but always fused in meerily condescending,
god-like complexity. [[MrsFanservice [[MsFanservice CONSTANTLY dawning close-fitting, sexy tops and shorts]] and radiating an alluring yet odd charisma. Topped with a [[AttentionWhore gluttonous jealousy for admiration]] and an [[ItsAllAboutMe arrant contempt for others needs/wants]], Samantha's quite the Christmas villain. She's also fiercely, shamelessly manipulative; Notice scenes when somebody foolishly puts themselves between Samantha and something she wants: she'll either raise her voice or, more dangerously...whisper, before claiming her insane victory two seconds later. She always does!
* {{Toplessness *{{Toplessness From The Back}}: We see her bare back in a few shots.
* {{Who Where's Wears Short Shorts?}}: In her posters, tv appearances and chronologically to the film, Samantha's pants are exceptionally tiny and tight.



* {{Cannot Keep It A Secret}}; Mike's job was to keep Chris' location secret from Samantha. To be fair, he tried and would have were it not for the ladies insane method of persuasion.

Added DiffLines:

* {{It's All About Me}}: Comically downplayed somewhat; "Me" means "Me leaping into bed with Samantha James" which is literally all he cares about, anything else be dammed. Ninety-five percent of his scenes are him making raunchy advances on the crackbrained pop-star or making it clearthats all he's concerned with. To be fair; Mike is at that age but his mania for Samantha had consumed him, reaching unhealthy status.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Secret Keeper}}: It was a role given by his brother to which he nonchalantly agreed, then inverted when he gave the secret up.


* {{Motivational Kiss}}: With Mike. He firstly defied her demands for the first time. With no hesitation she plants a big one on him and, again with no hesitation, he complies.



** Obviously. Her "everyone loves me/it's all about me" persona is full fledged and never wavers, even at the cost of others safety (though it's all played for laughs). Samantha has such boundless, almost supernatural confidence in herself that's exhausting to be exposed to.

Ever the overzealous, [[GreenEyedMonster psychopathicly domineering madwoman]], Chris loving anyone else was enough for her to destroy an entire Christmas party, physically assult Chris and Jaime (destroying the party injured more), threaten to get Chris fired and presumably steal a car.



*{{Pre-Asskiicking One-Liner}} She has a few:
"I'm Samantha James, bitch!", pushes Jaime.
"That's it, bitch! It's on!", assults a rude crowd member.
"Forgive this, asshole!", punches Chris in throat.
Parodied;
Mike: "I'll never tell you aything!"
Samantha: "Oh yeah?", proceeds to make out with him. Not an asskicking, but an act of overpowering one nonetheless.

** Samantha and Chris are the only two characters Mike interacts and while the former makes advances on him, the latter is usually beating him up. Naturally, Samantha got Mike to betray Chris easily.

* {{Evil vs Evil}} Downplayed and parodied; Mike and Samantha's face off when she tempts him to discloseing Chris whereabouts. They're not typical villains, just two young, horny idiots.



** Mike is exceptionally hot-blooded towards his celebrity crush bordering on obsession.

** Mike is exceptionally hot-blooded towards his celebrity crush bordering on obsession. Samantha,.said crush, exploits this trope to her advantage at times.


Added DiffLines:

*{{Smooch Of Victory}} Inverted, very much so; Samantha did not tongue kiss Mike following his victory, but as a means to achieve a victory over him. If anything, Mike's defeat here is so big it's practically a kiss of pity.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Badass Boast}} "I'll Never Tell You Anything!!" was his one such boast and due to the following epic failure became funnier.
