* BrokenBase: Over the 2008 film. Some fans enjoyed it and considered it a worthy period piece, while its detractors flamed its pacing, its casting, or for the introduction of a love triangle that was absent for the book. Others say that it can't be blamed for trying to fit Waugh's vast commentary into a two-hour film, preferring the much longer miniseries (which is lauded for its loyalty to the book).

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Aloysius. There was a fair bit of brouhaha when it was thought he would be absent from the movie.
** For those who aren't familiar with the book and who are curious who Aloysius is - he's Sebastian's ''teddy bear''.
* HoYay: The intensity of Charles and Sebastian's relationship were vague in the book but purposely amped up for the movie. The miniseries made it very obvious.
** Blanche and Sebastian are even worse.

** Blanche
UpToEleven while still retaining plausible deniability; and the movie makes Sebastian's sexuality/attraction to Charles explicit [[spoiler:via a chaste kiss]] while still keeping Charles's reciprocity ambiguous (and, predictably, [[ButNotTooGay playing up his attraction to Julia)]].
** In both the miniseries and the movie,
Sebastian are even worse.and Anthony Blanche greet each other with a kiss on the lips.

* ValuesDissonance: The idea put forth by the book that gay relationships are inherently immature front-runners to a long-term straight partnership doesn't really hold much water nowadays (of course, this depends on what circles you move in). Additionally, many people take a much dimmer view of Charles [[ParentalAbandonment walking out on his kids.]]

* ValuesDissonance: The idea put forth by Cancels itself out in terms of attitudes towards Charles and Sebastian's relationship. In the time period when the book that gay relationships are inherently immature front-runners to a long-term straight partnership doesn't really hold much water nowadays (of course, this depends on what circles you move in). Additionally, many is set, homosexuality was taboo, ''but'' [[HeterosexualLifePartners romantic friendship]] between men was still somewhat accepted. Thus, people take a much dimmer view tolerate the boys' friendship, not because they are accepting of Charles [[ParentalAbandonment walking out on his kids.]] homosexuality, but because they do not see it as homosexual.

* TheWoobie: [[spoiler: Sebastian]] is a beautiful and lively young man at the beginning of the novel, but his family betrays him, his best friend betrays him, his lover is taken from him by the Nazis, and he spends the rest of his life as a hermetic hanger-on at an isolated monastary, with plenty of alcoholic misery along the way.
