These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Boyz n the Hood
Anvilicious: Furious' lecture on the dynamics of property value.
Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "One out of every twenty-one Black American males will be murdered in their lifetime", followed by "Most will die at the hands of another Black male." All this is played over the sounds of arguing, gunshots, children screaming, and one child crying, "They shot my brother!" Cue the opening shot of a STOP sign.
Fridge Horror: There's a very good chance that Ricky's son will grow up to be a criminal because he won't have a father to guide him, which is a major part of the movie's message.
Nightmare Fuel: The depiction of 'hood life is very realistic, and in several cases highly disturbing.
Signature Scene: When the car pulls up behind Ricky and shoots him while Tre yells,"RICKYYY!".
What an Idiot: Ricky, you're a cool dude and all but, when guys are stalking you for a drive by shooting, that is not the time to take a pee break and stroll and scratch your lotto card.
