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: 8 Mile
Crowning Moment of Awesome: Jimmy wins the rap duel not only be dissing Papa Doc's heritage, but commenting on his own failings - giving PD no ammunition to fire at him and causing him to choke.
Crowning Moment of Funny: Future whispers to Cheddar Bob "Yo man, fuck The Free World" in Papa Doc's presence, which leads Cheddar Bob to yell "YEAH! FUCK THE FREE WORLD!" The look on Future's face is absolutely hilarious.
Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Jimmy defending his gay co-worker Paul during a lunch line battle rap against a homophobic plant worker (a cameo by Xzibit).
Hilarious in Hindsight: "1, 2, 3 to the four / 1Pac, 2Pac, 3Pac, 4 / 4Pac, 3Pac, 2Pac, 1 / You're Pac, he's Pac, no Pacs, none!" As spit by Eminem directed at Papa Doc. Anthony Mackie went on to play Tupac Shakur in The Notorious B.I.G. biopic "Notorious".
Not only is Papa Doc's "secret shame" of Cranbrook a real school, it was also attended by that paragon of financial-sector wealth, 2012 Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Jimmy's friend's self-inflicted gunshot wound became either this or Harsher in Hindsight after being mirrored by NFL star Plaxico Buress injuring himself in a remarkably similar fashion.
