** On top of that, Stone later blamed the movie's poor reviews and box office on American homophobia once again, ignoring the fact that the movie did not do well anywhere. The following year, ''Film/BrokebackMountain'' was a commercial and financial hit in the US, further proving America can enjoy a movie featuring LGBT characters.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: Up the wazoo
** For purely practical reasons (lack of any treatment) badly wounded soldiers are euthanasied without anyone blinking an eye on that, considering it mercy instead.
** Greek extremely sexist views, especially when combined with homosexual subtexts ''and'' text. It has more than few subplots, making it all that more prominent.
** Aristotle's CulturalPosturing, which is very much TruthInTelevision picked from his works.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The story of Alexander the Great is one of most incredible in human history. Somehow they managed to take this and turn it into a badly cast narmfest that turned audiences off in droves.

* BestKnownForTheFanservice: A large amount of people remember the film for that one scene Creator/RosarioDawson spends in [[FullFrontalAssault full frontal nudity]].



* JustHereForGodzilla: A large amount of people watched the film for [[FullFrontalAssault that one scene]] with Creator/RosarioDawson.
* MisBlamed: Oliver Stone and some others blamed Americans and their rampant homophobia when there were some complaints about a bisexual Alexander the Great. They more or less explained that all or most Americans were homophobic and completely ignorant of history. The only problem: there weren't really any complaints on the American side concerning Alexander's sexuality. The complaints were coming from conservative Greeks. No one called them out on it.
