* EvilIsSexy: Creator/RalphFiennes as Amon Goeth.
* FanPreferredCouple: Amon and Helen, pairing occasionally supported by viewers, despite unlikelihood of it ever possibly working out, particularly since Amon mostly seems to see her as something he likes to possess than actually caring about her.

Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: While the film did well all over the world, Germans (understandably) liked the sympathetic portrayal of a German in a Holocaust movie that nevertheless portrayed the overall monstrosity of the Nazi regime and condemned its actions in no uncertain terms. There was an uproar the first time the film was to be broadcast on German television when the network announced that it would take two commercial breaks; in the end, the network agreed to show only one break, with only a few ads and a short newscast. Today, the film is always broadcast uncut with no breaks.

* TearJerker: TheMovie. However, the most powerful scene would have to be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BpXQ-zBOS44 Schindler's breakdown near the end of the film]].
** A close second would be Schindler seeing the body of the [[LittleDeadRidingHood little girl in the red coat]] pass by him on the way to the crematorium.
** The song "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem_of_Gold Jerusalem Of Gold]]" - an ''Israeli'' hymn of praise and longing for the (old) city - playing as the Schindler Jews walk hand in hand to freedom, just before their real-world counterparts come to pay their respect at Schindler's grave on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. This is really the only mention of the State of Israel - the final destination for many of the Schindler Jews - anywhere in the movie.
*** This depends a lot on your political affiliation; Israeli leftists would see this as the kind of fear-mongering propaganda used to bring Jews to Israel, the sort that's constantly used by the Israeli government, which muddies up the rest of the film’s humanistic message.

** Some people also feel that Creator/LiamNeeson losing the Globe and Oscar for Best Actor to Creator/TomHanks from ''Film/{{Philadelphia}}'' is also this.

** While not as regularly cited as the above omissions, a few critics (notably Creator/GeneSiskel of the Chicago Tribune) thought Creator/EmbethDavidtz was worthy of a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her work as Helen Hirsch.

** While not as regularly cited as the above omissions, a few critics (notably Creator/GeneSiskel of the Chicago Tribune) thought Creator/EmbethDavidtz was worthy of a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her work as Helen Hirsch. In most years people would've cried fowl, but because Anna Paquin's win was so monumentally significant, this omission has largely been overlooked.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Thomas Keneally's ''Schindler's Ark'' was hardly an obscure book, having won the Booker Prize in the year of its publication, but the movie is on a whole different level; subsequent reprints of the book have even changed the title to match the film.

* HypeBacklash: It is VERY popular on review websites such as IMDb to bash this film for being cloying, melodramatic and [[RealityIsUnrealistic unrealistic]], or simply [[ItsPopularNowItSucks just too well liked.]] Extra points if it's being criticized by a [[ThoseWackyNazis Neo-Nazi]] or a Holocaust Denier. In some ways, this is probably the ultimate movie to criticize if someone wants to make themselves look cool, smart, and nonconformist. (Not that there ''aren't'' people who genuinely dislike it, but there are many people who do it just for attention.)
