* DorkAge: It was the first film by Shyamalan to bomb at the box office, yet again attracting even more flak for its TwistEnding.

* LoveItOrHateIt: To be fair, the movie does have positive reviews (if Amazon has anything to go by) despite being considered by others to be one of M. Night Shyamalan’s weakest films (before ''Film/TheVisit'' revived his career).

* HypeBacklash: One of the main reasons ''Lady'' caught so much heat was that audiences had started getting tired with Shyamalan’s formulas and {{Mandatory Twist Ending}}s. Another was that Shyamalan tried ''way'' too hard to [[TakeThatCritics antagonize film critics]], though the biggest for many was that Shyamalan himself played a character who's [[MessianicArchetype not only writing a book on his beliefs that will one day usher in a golden age for mankind, but who will be murdered for it and become a martyr]]. As a result, people pronounced this his career nadir … until he made ''Film/TheHappening'' and ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', which got even worse reviews.

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Farber the critic. The film goes into great lengths to [[TakeThatCritics make him unlikable]], but his DesignatedVillain position and the fact he appears to be the OnlySaneMan still makes him quite popular with audiences.

[[spoiler: The way he's killed by the scrunt, rattling off how things would be working in a conventional movie like his vaunted cinematic knowledge might somehow save him, makes the way the movie treats him seem even more petty.]]

* DesignatedVillain: Farber the critic. We’re supposed to dislike him, because what kind of person would be arrogant enough to presume the intention of someone else? He ''didn’t'', though. [[spoiler:When Cleveland asked him whom he should seek to fill the various roles in Story’s guard, he expressed it as a hypothetical question and Farber only gave qualities he’d expect each person to have. Cleveland nominated each tenant to a given role himself.]]

** Did somebody say [[WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain “NARF!”]]?“NARF!”]]? The names for the other mystical creatures as well, but especially the scrunt, which becomes especially damaging as it's the movie's BigBad.
