YMMV / April Fools' Day

  • Broken Base: The canon ending or the alternate one. Some fans would have preferred an actual murder to happen in the end while others are fine with the joke ending where Everybody Lives.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Nikki finding three bodies in the well is terrifying. The next scene where Muffy offers her water - only for Nikki to jump away (assuming it's from the well) is bound to make one chuckle.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Nikki is a big favourite among the fans for her funny lines and shameless Really Gets Around nature. The fact that she's quite beautiful helps too.
  • Estrogen Brigade: Girls love Rod and his scene wearing just his briefs, as well as appearing in a speedo later.
  • Ho Yay: Chaz and Arch.
  • Nausea Fuel: What happens to Chaz. Having your penis cut off is horrible to think about. Even if it didn't really happen.
  • Vindicated by Cable: The movie didn't do that well when it was released but it enjoyed plenty of reruns on cable (due to the violence being only implied rather than shown). It picked up a cult following as a result.
