* MagnificentBastard: Lao Che, who through resources and with, essentially wins in his StarterVillain subplot and seems to have a pretty jolly time doing it, too.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Most observers of the film who are from India or are Indophiles and aware of Indian culture and history, feel this way about the film's depiction of India. Some note, that even Creator/RudyardKipling, [[WeWantOurJerkBack imperialist apologist that he was]], at least got some basic details right.

* ContestedSequel: Was it an interesting variation on the plot of ''Raiders'', or was it [[DarknessInducedAudienceApathy too dark and gory to enjoy]]?

It is generally seen as the weakest of the original trilogy, but reception of this movie warmed a bit among the fandom after the release of the even more divisive ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' who appreciate its weirdness and its attempt to be different from the first film and that it has many of the franchise's SignatureScene. Others however point out that the film is too hampered by its racist and inaccurate depiction of Indian culture and its indulgence of MightyWhitey tropes to truly rise to any level of greatness.

* VindicatedByHistory: While still seen as the weakest of the original trilogy, reception of this movie warmed a bit among the fandom after the release of the even more divisive ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull''. These days there are a growing number of fans who cite this film as their favorite ''because'' of how much it stands out from ''Raiders'' and ''Crusade'' and point out that many of the most iconic Indy moments are actually in ''this'' film.

** Short Round gets a lot of hate for his tendency [[NoIndoorVoice to shout most of his lines,]] although there are a number of fans who like him for being a competent KidSidekick.

* {{Squick}}: The infamous dinner sequence. Complete with servings of snakes filled with eels, eyeball soup, beetles, and chilled monkey brains for dessert. The chamber full of bugs could also qualify.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The opening Busby Berkeley-esque dance number, which is weird in itself, but certain elements of the number ramp this up even further -- for instance, the huge sound-stage the dancers disappear into, which is apparently somewhere ''inside'' the club, the fact that they can all apparently rise back into a standing position from a grounded scissor-split, and when Willie somehow turns several red hankerchiefs plucked from the dancers' lapels into a huge red sheet (well, she does mention her grandfather was a magician....). All in all, very strange indeed.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Yes, Willie's constant shrieking and screaming is annoying. But it's pretty understandable. As cited above, she's caught up in a HELL of a situation and is reacting the way pretty much any of us would.
