* [[MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales Russians Love Anastasia]]: ''Anastasia'' was well received in Russia and a box office hit, since its distributors took care to market it as not history but a historical fairy tale, letting the audience watch it with a fair dose of MST3KMantra.

** With her hair down and partly tied back with a bow as she appears on the ship to France, Anya resembles [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]. Now remember that ''AllDogsGoToHeaven'' was [[DuelingMovies crushed]] by ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' at the box office.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Sophie is very popular despite her small screen-time. [[http://donbluthconfessions.tumblr.com/post/122711574360/grimfangsmaw-thefingerfuckingfemalefury Fans love her]] for being a desirable BigBeautifulWoman, and see her as a positive example for unconventional beauty and body-types.

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker:
**Anya. Is she a well developed, awesome female character, worthy of being remembered alongside the likes of Ariel and Belle? Or is she just a bitchy snobby character that tries too hard to be "Disney-like" and ends up abandoning her old grandma for a con?
* BrokenBase:
**The film as a whole. Is it a good, fun and adventurous film? Or a poor film that butchers a real life story and tries too hard to be Disney and end ups with a bad moral (family is important...until you meet your man. then you can just dump them).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The fact that the film portrays the Russian Revolution as being the result of a dark spell, courtesy of Raputin (as opposed to perceived injustices of society) could easily be taken as a TakeThat to revolutionaries as being pathetic dupes of evil men, although this would in turn come off with UnfortunateImplications as many of the revolutionaries had legitimate complaints. The Tsar wasn't exactly a shining hero himself.

* AllAnimationIsDisney: Could very well be the UrExample of this. This film is mistaken for Disney more than any other animated film out there, due largely in part to it copying many aspects of the "[[TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1990s Disney Princess formula]]". It is mistaken for a Disney film so often that if you search "Anastasia" on Google, one of the very first search suggestions will be "anastasia disney".
** Interestingly enough, for once this may have actually been an advantage as the comparisons were positive.

disney". Interestingly enough, for once this may have actually been an advantage as the comparisons were positive.



* VindicatedByHistory: The movie had a decent-at-best box office showing of just over $50m (equating to about $100m today), which was not exactly the blockbuster Fox was hoping for with its new animation arm. However, once released on VHS, it gained a word-of-mouth following and spent over a year consecutively on the monthly best-selling VHS charts.
** On another note, the Romanovs themselves were initially not too keen on the film. Over time they warmed up to it.
