* AnimationAgeGhetto: The movie looks like an {{Animesque}} kids' cartoon; and the story can be mistaken for a standard fantasy story about quests and magic and unicorns. In truth, it's nothing of the sort. The book has won many awards and is considered by fans and other authors to be one of the best works of fantasy ever written and the film is a beautifully animated [[note]]Through a conjunction of Rankin/Bass and animators who would later to become part of StudioGhibli[[/note]] faithful adaptation of the story.

* BrokenBase: Many people are on the fence on the possibility of this story getting a live-action adaptation/remake. While some would mostly like it for the awareness the original book and film would get by the media, others fear at the idea of Hollywood changing the themes and characters to make them more "accesible" to the modern mainstream audience, and others are aware that Hollywood could possibly add a happy ending to the story therefore leaving most of original message in the dust. And finally, there's a camp that feels that without Christopher Lee around to play as Haggard, there can't be a movie.



* TheWoobie: Practically almost all the characters except the butterfly. The villains too, though they could be considered more to be JerkassWoobie.

* {{Applicability}}: Could the story in general carry a metaphor for a woman's virginity? After all it all but mentions it with Molly's story and unicorns being described as being pure creatures. You could even say the Unicorn/Amalthea carries this allegory in her journey, starting being this innocent, pure creature who doesn't know much of the world of men, and once turned into an adult woman (by the interference of a red colored being and a man, no less) she begins fearing and feeling anxious, and finally falling in love, common feelings for humans but before these thoughts were alien to her. Not very different from how young people transition to adulthood. It's exemplified by the song "Now That I'm A Woman" in the film.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The movie has a soundtrack that is ''way'' too awesome than a movie about unicorns has any right to be, especially the haunting theme song by ''Music/{{America}}''.

** It's less about virginity, and more about going through puberty and becoming a woman, as exemplified by the song "Now That I'm A Woman".
* BaseBreakingCharacter: The butterfly. Some find him hilarious, and see him as an EnsembleDarkhorse / OneSceneWonder. Others claim he's an annoying [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] who slows the story down.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: Some of the songs - "Now That I'm A Woman" and "That's All I've Got To Say" in particular. They either add a lot to the story or else detract from it.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: This "kid's movie" has graphically adult content (such as a triple breasted harpy) and emotional themes that go way beyond a children's film.

* {{Deconstruction}}: The story is considered one for fairy tales in general, by having the characters pointing out how they're aware that they live inside a fairy tale. The story also deconstructs common cliches of the genre: the princess is cold and aloof (and not even human), the old woman believes in unicorns the most of them all and is close friends with the princess instead of being her enemy, the Prince Charming is originally a lazy bum and has to work to actually turn into a desirable Charming figure, by changing his habits and parts of his personality; the old wicked witch simply wants to be remembered, and the wizard is quite incompetent in his magic. Biggest thing of all, the story doesn't end with the princess and the prince marrying and living happily ever after.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Amalthea's crisis and Haggard's motivation could be read as symptoms of depression.
