YMMV / Elf Bowling 1 & 2

  • Adaptation Displacement: More people known about the movie than the games, mainly due to The Mysterious Mr. Enter.
  • Bile Fascination: Most of the people who have played it probably have only played it for this reason.
  • Deader Than Disco: While the franchise was never that spectacular to begin with, the crude humor and Christmas theme of the first few games made them a fun addition to the holidays of the late 90s and early 2000s. However, when the first two games were re-released on the DS almost exactly as they were on the PCs, they were critically roasted, both on their own merits and for their unjustifiable price tag. By this point, the games didn't even have the benefit of Nostalgia Goggles since they were better known for this DS release than their original PC release. Then the film came along and destroyed whatever support was left of the franchise.
  • Franchise Killer: Even before the infamous movie, the disastrous DS re-release tarnished the franchise, and would have discouraged any wise publisher from investing further into it. The ill-conceived film put the final nail in the coffin.
  • Most Annoying Sound: All the sound effects qualify.
  • Video-Game Movies Suck: Had a movie, and it sucked. Not that the games it was based on were ever good to begin with, though.
