* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailer makes it look like a standard romantic comedy. [[spoiler:It's much darker than that]].

!!This film exhibits the following tropes:
----
* UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}: Set and filmed there. Several scenes between Beth and James are set in Millennium Park and James is shown to be a member of Second City, a real-life comedy troupe that includes among its alumna most of the starring cast.
* ManicPixieDreamGirl: Beth seems poised to play this role to James, getting him to move out and make something of himself, but [[spoiler:she really just wanted to have sex with a fat man so as to check it off her list.]]
* MaybeEverAfter: At the end of the film, James is shown having dinner with a woman at the local retirement home while being watched by Stella and members of the retirement home and then the credits roll. Word Of God is that this is supposed to indicate that James has returned to theater and is making an attempt to have a relationship with Stella.
* TheRemake: A remake of ''Marty'' drives parts of the plot. James's life parallels the plot of ''Marty'', so he's an obvious shoe-in for the title role. [[spoiler:It instead goes to a young attractive pop-star with the lines completely unchanged from the original "I'm ugly and I'm fat," and it's a hit.]]
* TitleDrop: Said by Beth in the midst of Jay Pritzker Pavilion while watching a young couple doing just that.
