* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: The film was considered by many to be a catastrophe, but Creator/DanielDayLewis delved into his character just as much as he has in any other character he's ever played. Many critics wondered if it would hurt his mostly unblemished career at all. He's seconded by Creator/MarionCotillard, who director Creator/RobMarshall viewed as the real star of the film. Her powerful, emotional performance of the MovieBonusSong "Take It All" nearly redeemed the film for some.

* FlatCharacter: Creator/RogerEbert criticised all the characters in the film for being this. "But that's what they are, stars, because the movie doesn't make them characters".


* EnsembleDarkhorse: Stephanie is one of the favourites in the movie adaptation. Her (movie only!) song "Cinema Italiano" is a huge EarWorm, and Creator/KateHudson received lots of praise for it. The other popular movie character is Saraghina, thanks to Fergie's impressive performance.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: Creator/PenelopeCruz in lingerie on a swing, Creator/KateHudson dancing in a {{Stripperiffic}} costume, Fergie pouring sand all over herself and Creator/MarionCoutillard stripping off intensely. Partially justified since the main character is a bit of a lech.

Added DiffLines:

* JustHereForGodzilla: Some agree that Creator/MarionCotillard is the best part of the film, citing that it's worth watching only for her powerful performance of "Take It All".
* OneSceneWonder: Fergie as Saraghina for the extremely memorable "Be Italian" sequence.
* SheReallyCanAct: A variation. Kate Hudson showed that she could really dance. Even the negative reviews expressed pleasant surprise.
