Added DiffLines:

* CriticalBacklash: The hate for this movie is so extreme that those who go into it expecting a disaster of epic proportions are likely to come out of it fully enjoying it and finding it nearly on par with the original trilogy or simply finding to a decent film that's flaws are blown wildly out of proportion.

* MemeticMutation: The infamous "nuking the fridge" meme, which became another term for JumpingTheShark.

** Although Lucas had already eliminated the "Old Indy" bookends from the DVD version of ''Series/TheYoungIndianaJonesChronicles'', which showed 93 years-old Indy being cared by a daughter, it was Spielberg who vetoed Indy having a daughter in this film, feeling that it would be a retreat of Kelly and Ian Malcolm from ''Film/TheLostWorldJurassicPark''.

* ContestedSequel: It's hard to pin down a specific ratio, but opinions are sharply divided over whether it's a worthy follow-up to the original trilogy or not. Accusations of TheyJustDidntCare (like the Star Wars prequel trilogy that came before it) are common among dissers.

** Lucas was deadset on having Indy survive a nuclear explosion by using a fridge as shelter, but he never said that the nuclear explosion had to be that close or that Indy should fly away in the fridge ([[WhatCouldHaveBeen one of the first scripts]], ''Indiana Jones and the Saucermen from Mars'', has Indy ducking in a foxhole and turning the fridge over his head as a cover). That belongs to Koepp and Spielberg.

** Likewise the comic book adaptation of ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis which revealed the Atlantian technology was given to them by aliens.

* HilariousInHindsight: Early drafts had Mutt as a girl; seven years later, Creator/HarrisonFord returned to another iconic role, playing a father-figure to a budding ActionGirl hero, [[spoiler:and even passes on a cherished keepsake to her at the end.]] [[Film/TheForceAwakens Most fans agree that one was much more successful.]] It becomes doubly so when the news came that Daisy Ridley was in talks for a ''VideoGame/TombRaider'' {{reboot}}.

** For all the flak the reveal of [[spoiler: the crystal skull belonging to a race of interdimensonal beings got. Most probably don't realize that it was actually used first in an early Indy story, the comic adaptation of ''VideoGame/IndianaJonesAndTheFateOfAtlantis'' which revealed that most of the technology the Altatians had were given to them by ''aliens''.]]

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: As annoying as people find Mutt, he's a better son to a Creator/HarrisonFord character than [[spoiler: [[Film/TheForceAwakens Kylo Ren]]]].
