As much as the movie is hated, the way they get Brains to finally call Jeff by his first name was pretty awesome.
Brains: "DAMN IT JEFF, WAKE UP!!!"
- As universally-loathed as the movie is, the redesigns of the Thunderbird craft were pretty awesome. And admit it, you felt a rush of adrenaline when those ships launched for the first time.
- This moment during the climax made it impossible for this troper to hate this movie. A very nice moment that shows that Alan gained the maturity necessary during his adventure to join International Rescue at the end of the film.
(As The Hood hangs on the catwalk above the whirring drill of The Mole)
Alan: I don't want to save your life...
(The Hood purposely lets go, but Alan grabs his arm.)
Alan: ...but it's what we do.
