These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Critical Dissonance: On Rotten Tomatoes, Airheads only has a 21% freshness rating with critics. Among audiences, however, it is moderately popular with a freshness of 51%.
Harsher in Hindsight: Kayla leaving the Whiskey-A-Go-Go and driving erratically to Rebel Radio becomes less funny when you learn that actress Amy Locane is currently serving a prison sentence for killing an elderly woman while driving drunk.
Values Dissonance: It's a goofy comedy about guys taking a radio station hostage with fake Uzis, and we're supposed to root for them. After all the violence of the last few decades, if this movie were made today, it would probably be a whole lot darker.
