* BrokenBase: The film's third act was incredibly polarizing among both audiences and film critics. While some people say that it thematically makes sense and was the perfect way to conclude it, others said it has so little to do with the rest of the film that it drags the excellent first two acts down.

** The "Car.... versus horse" subtext Donald places in his script makes the climactic battle in ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' so much funnier, as this is pretty much ''exactly'' the subtext Creator/JamesCameron was going for.
