YMMV: Bringing Down the House
  • Awesome Moments: Charlene fighting Peter's racist ex-sister-in-law, Ashley, in the country club bathroom and winning.
    Charlene: And I don't EVER want to have this conversation again!
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: So what if acting and speaking intelligibly and basic politeness would take you a long way? Act like you're fresh out of a back alley and don't let anyone tell you otherwise, or they're a sellout!
  • Funny Moments: Peter going undercover. He looks like a thirty-year-older Eminem.
  • Refuge in Audacity: The elderly rich woman Peter is trying to entice into becoming a client for his law firm begins singing a "Negro spiritual" while having dinner with Peter and his kids. Charlene is so outraged she begins smashing stuff in the kitchen before she picks up a kitchen knife and starts entertaining certain thoughts... before the laxative-spiked food Peter ate (which was intended for the woman) kicks in and his stomach begins LOUDLY protesting.
