* VindicatedByHistory: The film was widely panned and ignored by critics when it was released as they called it just some weird road trip. It was also a box office flop (it is not easy to market a film like this). However, it became a massive cult following. People like it because of the performances of Depp and Del Toro and Gilliam's direction.
** the movie also completely captures the spirit of the book, even though it doesn't copy the book exactly.

* {{Anvilicious}}: In the book and the audio drama, Duke and Gonzo stop at a diner and tell the waitress and the cook that they are looking for The AmericanDream. The two women give them directions to a disco nitespot of that name. Duke and Gonzo drive there, but find out that it had burned down.

%%* {{Applicability}}

%%* {{Applicability}}* {{Applicability}}: The book has a huge number of different interpretations as to what Creator/HunterSThompson was trying to say with it, whether it's supposed to be a comedy, whether it's supposed to be serious, political, or just an exaggeration of things Thompson actually did. The reality is that they are ''all'' right, as the whole point of Gonzo journalism is to allow the reader to be put in the same frame of mind as the author, whatever the author was thinking at the time, which in the case of Thompson, a man who was politically astute, had a great sense of humor, and was known for being over the top, you get a book much like him: something equal parts genius, lunatic, and poet.

* ValuesDissonance: The night before the drug conference, Duke and Gonzo ended up at a restaurant where they ate a cheap meal and "watched four boozed-up cowboy types kick a faggot half to death between the pinball machines." Then they went back to the hotel. People writing nowadays would probably be less casual about witnessing homophobic violence, and definitely wouldn't refer to the victim as a "faggot."

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Are Duke and Gonzo wacky Counter Culture heroes sticking it to The Man and the squares, or a pair of selfish, irresponsible jerks?
