* MemeticMutation: For a time, "And I'm Telling You Im Not Going" was better remembered for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zj_L2ZKVaEw a scene from]] "The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air," in which Will does a [[ChewingTheScenery hysterically over-the-top]] lip-sync of the song to Uncle Phil. Jennifer Hudson would later reveal that [[HilariousInHindsight this is where she first heard the song]].

* {{Narm}}: The scene with the reprised version of "Cadillac Car" has been known to made several audiences laugh rather than share the sense of annoyance/outrage that Curtis and company felt.

* {{Narm}}: The scene with the reprised version of "Cadillac Car" has been known to made several audiences laugh rather than share the sense of annoyance/outrage that Curtis and company felt. Arguably, it can be read as BlackComedy, that this rip-roaring [=R&B=] song got more popular as a terrible teen pop ballad that sucked all of the coolness out.

* AwardSnub: The movie earned eight Oscar nominations, more than any other movie of its year, yet got denied a Best Picture nomination. Eddie Murphy fans were rather vocal about his being denied the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his performance as Jimmy, which the man himself blamed one the release of ''Film/{{Norbit}}'' during award season.

* HeReallyCanAct: ''And'' sing! It's safe to say that Eddie Murphy's come a long way since "Party All The Time." See AwardSnub.
* HilariousInHindsight: In the movie, (and also in Music/DestinysChild) Beyonce plays the SpotlightStealingSquad. However after the movie came out Jennifer Hudson and Creator/EddieMurphy took it over.

* AngstWhatAngst: Some viewers have noticed how quickly [[spoiler: Lorrell gets past Jimmy's death, with her only being sad about it in one scene and then getting back to business as usual. Given the fact that it came out of nowhere, mostly forgotten by everyone other than Effie, C.C. and Marty and that it's a DeathByAdaptation makes one even wonder why he was killed off in the first place.]]

** JerkassWoobie: Effie, not a {{jerkass}} [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold per se]] still counts. Although she was selfish, rude, and self-absorbed at first, she loses her spot and her boyfriend, who she really wanted to stay with while she was pregnant with his baby. It's not that hard to feel sorry for her. Plus, seeing him getting married to Deena must have hurt her a lot.

* DudeNotFunny: An InUniverse example. I'm the film, when Jimmy drops his pants on national television, he expects others to find it funny. The others then criticize him for making a fool out of himself instead.
