Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: An unusual example in regards to the fact that Terry Gilliam ''intended'' for this to happen. When making the film, he wanted it to be seen as both the best movie ever made and the worst movie ever made. Needless to say, it worked.

* AdaptationDisplacement: The main page is categorized under "Literature." Now look at how many tropes are actually only for the movie.

* 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.
