- Author's Saving Throw: Literally the entire reason this movie exists is that John Hughes was upset at the Executive Meddling that changed the ending of Pretty in Pink, so he wrote a very similar story while only changing the genders so it wouldn't be quite so obvious.
- Awesome Music: The whole movie is like a love letter to British popular music. Note that the song "(She's) Some Kind of Wonderful" does not, in fact, appear in the movie.
- Director Displacement: It's viewed as a John Hughes film, though Howard Deutch directed it.
- Retroactive Recognition
YMMV / Some Kind of Wonderful
