* {{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.

* 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.

* 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.

** Her reactions and actions within the film could also indicate that Willie was just a normal woman who was caught in a situation that is completely out of her element.

* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Willie might be hated for being TheLoad but she did manage to punch one Thuggee out during the minecart scene.



* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The controversy over how dark and bloody it was for a PG film partially inspired the creation of the PG-13 movie rating in the USA and the 12 in the UK.
