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: Dream House
For the movie:
Unfortunate Implications: Soon after the beginning, there is a sex scene between Will and Libby. Then, in the middle of the film, it is revealed Will was hallucinating his wife and daughters.
The Woobie: Peter Ward, the man whose family was killed. He hears the confrontation between his wife and the gunman, tries to save her and the children, and was inadvertently shot by his mortally-wounded wife, is accused of the murders of his wife and daughters. Little wonder he abandoned his identity and took up the false identity of Will Attenton.
