YMMV: Andy Hardy
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: When Andy gets nervous during rehearsal and can't stop laughing in Andy Gets Spring Fever.
  • Hollywood Homely: The Courtship of Andy Hardy has Andy mercy-dating the daughter of a divorcing couple whose case his father, a judge, is working on. She's depicted as such a "droop" that at one point Andy has to actually pay his chums to dance with her at a school prom. She's also played by Donna Reed, for crying out loud.
  • Sequel Displacement: The fourth installment, Love Finds Andy Hardy, is arguably the best remembered, undoubtedly due in no small part to it being the first appearance of Judy Garland in the series. It's the only Andy Hardy film in the National Film Registry.
  • Values Dissonance: In Andy's play in Andy Gets Spring Fever, the main character (an American soldier) calls his love interest (a Tahiti native) his "little savage maiden".
