YMMV / Calamity Jane

  • Awesome Music / Ear Worm: Every single one of the songs. Special mention must go to "I Can Do Without You", "Just Blew in From the Windy City" and "Secret Love".
  • Les Yay: Plenty between Calamity and Katie. When they first meet, Calamity calls Katie "the prettiest thing I ever saw". When Katie falls for Danny it's not quite clear who Calamity is jealous of.
  • Values Dissonance: The film is very of its time. Calamity is shamed constantly to be more feminine, so much that when she sees herself in the mirror, she becomes insecure for not being "feminine" enough and is given a makeover. Only when she gets a makeover is she recognised as "beautiful". The film tries to convince us that she'll be happier as a wife, as a message to Fifties women in the United States who threaten to break from conformity.
