- Actor Allusion:
- Analeigh Tipton posing while getting photographed.
- The mentions of the book The Scarlet Letter ("A is for asshole!"), even though Emma Stone is barely involved in them, might get a Call-Back to Easy A, which starred Stone and was released a year earlier, and is considered an updated version of the book.
- All-Star Cast: Steve Carell, Kevin Bacon, Ryan Gosling, Marisa Tomei, Emma Stone, Julianne Moore.
- Billing Displacement: Analeigh Tipton has a bigger part than Marisa Tomei, guess which one is on the poster...
- Dawson Casting:
- 22-year old Analeigh Tipton as 17/18 year old Jessica. Not as bad as other examples, but still there.
- Inverted with Emma Stone who is three days older than Tipton playing a 27 year old.
- Madison, the blonde girl with the "huge rack" whom Jessica solicits for advice was played by 23 year old Julianna Guill. The character was supposed to be 17 or 18 at most.
- Downplayed with both 48 year old Steve Carell and 50 year-old Julianne Moore playing 44 year old Highschool Sweethearts.
- Those Two Actors: This was Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone's first collaboration together. They would later appear in the 2013 crime-action film Gangster Squad and the 2016 romantic musical La La Land.
