Added DiffLines:

* Tearjerker: This depends on your interpretation of the ending of course, but Bateman's existence is so shallow and meaningless he can't even understand basic human interaction. He even cries during one of his murders that he just wants to be loved. And everyone around him is so self-absorbed they literally don't notice his frequent confessions to his crimes. By the end, it feels like a cry for help.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Is Patrick Bateman ''really'' a serial killer, or is he [[spoiler:a hallucinating coward]], or is he [[spoiler:an utterly unremarkable and bored white collar worker who has escapist fantasies about being a serial killer to make himself seem more interesting]]?

* RetroactiveRecognition: Seeing [[Creator/ChristianBale the guy]] who would be made famous by his role as {{Franchise/Batman}} play a psychopathic murderer SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker would be shocked by is quite odd.

** Who better than the [[Creator/MattSmith 11th Doctor]] himself to play Bateman, A.K.A [[MemeticMutation Dubs Guy]]?

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Patrick excuses himself from Detective Kimball by saying he has "a lunch meeting with [[Main/TheCosbyShow Cliff Huxtable]] at the Four Seasons in 20 minutes." In 2014, this line either became this or a possible dose of FridgeBrilliance.

* MemeticMutation: Patrick Bateman (and some of his choice reaction shots) has become memetic in and of himself. Also, the entire Huey Lewis and The News and Phil Collins speeches.

* VindicatedByHistory: The film polarized critics when it came out. Its RottenTomatoes rating is only 67%, and its Metacritic score is 64; decent, but not stunning. Since then, it's been almost universally recognized as a classic. One can say that, once it hit DVD, the film [[MemeticMutation really came into its own - commercially and artistically]].
