YMMV / Anchors Aweigh

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: The entire sequence where Gene's character is in a cartoon world and meets Jerry. It has nothing to do with the plot, and yet it's what most people remember about the film. It was so memorable, that in the Family Guy episode "Road to Rupert", much of the sequence was reworked to draw Stewie Griffin over Jerry (though the latter's reflection on the floor is still visible).
  • Just Here for Godzilla: The scene with Jerry is perhaps the most iconic moment in the movie.
  • One-Scene Wonder: Jerry.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Dean Stockwell who played Donald, the boy who wanted nothing more than to join the Navy, would many years later be seen as a Rear Admiral in Quantum Leap, and as the Secretary of the Navy in JAG.
