YMMV / Alice

The 1988 movie by Jan Švankmajer

The Webcomic

  • Ambiguous Disorder: Being similar to Calvin, Alice has a few traits associated with Aspergers.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: When Alice finally starts to accept Joan.
  • The Woobie: Joan. Alice demonizes her in all her fantasies, and there's nothing to suggest that Joan deserves any of this, other than simply being the woman that Alice's dad loves and wants to marry. One image that really hits home for many stepparents is when they're in the car Alice doesn't want anything to do with her.
    • Alice herself - it's not hard to assume that her relationship with Joan is in part a Freudian Excuse, since her first stepmother died, and she developed her Cloud Cuckoolander tendencies to cope with the sadness.
