----
!!Provides Examples Of:
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Chase
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: Ray feelings for Nicole, Alicia and Nicole are both scheming to get Brad's affection and approval, while he is falls for a different girl.
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: it's very clear that Alicia is very jealous of Nicole, to the point of deliberately sabotaging Nicole's love life. She convinces Brad not to go after Nicole after his break up and tries to seduce him herself, and aggressively hits on Chase at a house party just so Nicole can see them kissing.
* BirdsOfAFeather: Dave and Dee are a romantic, played straight example, as both are [[TheCutie sweet, shy nice kids]] with a deep need for approval.
** An interesting platonic variation of the trope is lampshaded by Dee, who calls Chase a "kindred spirit", as both are former nerds who made it into the cool kids crowd via makeovers.
* BeautifulAllAlong - Chase, to the surprise of exactly no one.
* BecomingTheMask
* BeYourself
* ComicallySerious: Dulcie, at times.
* LightFeminineAndDarkFeminine: Nicole is the light both to AloofDarkHairedGirl Alicia and DarkerAndEdgier Dulcie.
* {{Expy}}: One can only hope the creators of the film realized how much this film's plot resembles Film/CantBuyMeLove
* ExtracurricularEnthusiast: Nicole
* ExtremeDoormat: Designated Dave, who will keep sucking up to awful JerkJock types who won't stop calling him Designated Dave or treat him like he's an actual person.
* GeekPhysique: Designated Dave, as well as Dee in her formerly fat days.
* GenkiGirl: Nicole
* HeelRealization: Nicole has a minor one when she realizes how mean she and her friends were to mock Ray and Dave, Chase's old friends.
* JerkJock: most of them, but emotionally abusive Eddie is by absolutely the worst.
* MeaningfulName: Dulcie, short for [[Literature/DonQuixote Dulcinea]], is idealized by Chase.
** Dee is actually short for Destiny, and she and Dave are [[BirdsOfAFeather destined for each other]].
* ObliviousToLove: Chase is pretty unaware that Nicole has developed real feelings for him.
* ThePrankster: Chase and Ray.
* {{Tsundere}}: Duclie, towards Chase.
* SoapBoxSadie: Dulcie and her "edgy" passion for spoken word poetry and AnimalWrongsGroup antics.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: Chase and Nicole, originally, but also Chase with Ray and Dave for a while.
