* TheCameo: Several, mostly in the New York section (Mandy Patinkin, Eve, Kevin Smith, Alexander Siddig). Noel Clarke, meanwhile, approaches Creator/MNightShyamalan levels of self-adoration (say what you like about Shyamalan, but at least ''he'' hasn't appeared on any of his films' posters); he plays Emma Roberts' boss and having written the script, he has her describe him as hot ("Strangely sexy though").

* {{Jerkass}}: YMMV, but there are plenty indisputable ones like Manuel and Gwen.
** The [[WithFriendsLikeThese main characters may count too]] considering the abuse they give Shannon (they may have been wrapped up in their own lives but seem to be needlessly antagonist towards her).
*** Jo at least, has an excuse. [[spoiler:The store was being robbed and she had a gun in her side. She was trying to get Shannon to leave to save her life.]]


* BlondGuysAreEvil


* BillingDisplacement: Noel Clarke's prominence on the poster is not justified.



* DawsonCasting: It's not clear exactly what age the girls are but since college is mentioned and they all live at home (apart from ultra-rich Cassandra), they are most likely around 18 or 19, which means this trope is mostly averted except for the 23-year-old Ophelia Lovibond [Shannon] (who ironically ''looks'' the youngest of the girls).
* DirectToDVD: Like Emma Roberts' other British movie ''Film/WildChild'', this never got a theatrical release in the US.

* DirectToDVD: Like Emma Roberts' other British movie ''Film/WildChild'', this never got a theatrical release in the US. It can't have helped that (again like ''Wild Child'') it was a BoxOfficeBomb in Britain.



* FakeAmerican: English actress Helen [=McCrory=] as Jo's mother.


''4.3.2.1'' is a British comic-dramatic crime thriller co-directed by Noel Clarke (who also wrote the script and played one of the supporting characters) and Mark Davis. It stars EmmaRoberts, Tamsin Egerton, Ophelia Lovibond and Shanika Warren-Marland.

* LipstickLesbian: Kerrys... sort of. Her aggressive personality is more along the lines of a ButchLesbian but she wears tons of makeup, has long hair and wears very conventionally sexy clothing. Her girlfriend, on the other hand, is a [IncrediblyLamePun straight Lipstick Lesbian]] (no pun intended).

* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey, It's That Gal!]]: [[{{Unfabulous}} Addie Singer]] is ordered around by her [[BadBoss tyrannical manager]], [[Series/DoctorWho Mickey Smith]], while [[StTrinians Chelsea Parker]] bonds with [[{{Clerks}} Silent Bob]] on a plane to New York to audition for [[DeadLikeMe Rube Sofer]]. Oh, and [[{{Series/Merlin}} Nimueh]] is a diamond thief.

Added DiffLines:

* ExtremeDoormat: Jo, who lets her sister take advantage of her and her boss push her around. She later lampshades it, and notes she is sick of it.

Added DiffLines:

** Cassandra ''does'' say that she call the police if her own investigation doesn't work, and she just wants to do it herself.
** Jo ''couldn't'' say anything [[spoiler:since Tee was still right there, but she does turn him in later.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TemptingFate: "Nothing's going to happen to same store two nights in a row". Particularly since the audience already knows what will happen.
* TitleDrop: The code to Cassandra's panic room.


Added DiffLines:

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: "Five days, four girls, what could possibly go wrong?" Cue [[spoiler:Kelly also on the plane]].


* Jerkass: YMMV, but there are plenty indisputable ones like Manuel and Gwen.

Added DiffLines:

* PoliceAreUseless: Seems to be what the characters believe considering the fact that in Cassandra's story she doesn't call them and in Joanne's story they don't tell the truth to the police.


* LesbianJock: Kerrys. We don't actually ''see'' her play sports, but she's obviously in ridiculously good shape, pulling off moves that would make a [[BuffyTheVampireSlayer Slayer]] pause.
