YMMV / Driving Miss Daisy

  • Ear Worm: The film is home to quite possibly one of the catchiest (and warmest) film themes ever, courtesy of none other than Hans Zimmer (yes, that one).
  • Misaimed Fandom: The play and film weren't about race relations, it was about growing old.
  • Seinfeld Is Unfunny: This movie might have won an Academy Award, but as time has gone on it's started to age quite poorly. It's particularly the subject of a lot of criticism in comparison to Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing, which wasn't even nominated for the Best Picture Oscar and went to be a highly regarded film in terms of asking difficult questions about race relations, bigotry and violence, while Driving Miss Daisy…isn't.
