YMMV: Anansi Boys
  • Better on DVD: A lot of the jokes are even funnier on the second or third reading.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: Near the end, Fat Charlie meets Dragon, who informs Fat Charlie that he's going to eat him. Fat Charlie tries to tell him he's afraid with his newfound god powers, but it doesn't work so Fat Charlie has to deceive him.
    Dragon: "I am frightened of nothing.
    Fat Charlie: "Nothing?"
    Dragon: "Nothing."
    Fat Charlie: "Are you extremely frightened of nothing?"
    Dragon: "Absolutely terrified of it."
    Fat Charlie:"I have nothing in my pockets. Would you like to see it?"
    Dragon, uncomfortably: ''"No. No, I most definitely would not."
    (Dragon flies away)
  • Jerkass Woobie: Tiger may be prone to Small Name, Big Ego but you gotta feel for him with how Anansi manipulates him in the stories. On the other hand...
  • Nightmare Fuel: Everything the Bird Woman does.
