- Crosses the Line Twice: After Audrey is caught making out with a boy in the church, Helen jokes "you are SO going to Hell."
- Moe: Sarah naturally. Audrey as well at times.
- She Really Can Act: Some had this reaction to Kate Hudson. This is thought to be one of her more underrated performances among a string of cookie-cutter romantic comedies in the 2000s.
- Trailer Joke Decay: Sarah's "who's going to check my nose boogies for infection?" line was played in all the trailers and TV spots.
