YMMV / Erin Brockovich

  • Best Known for the Fanservice: This is the movie where Julie Roberts wears a wonderbra. Most of her interviews promoting the film seemed more interested in this than the achievements of the woman she was playing.
  • Designated Villain: Yes, Theresa and Erin get off on the wrong foot. But she at least tries to apologize and make amends, which Erin responds to with flat-out rudeness.
  • Eight Deadly Words: Roger Ebert said of the film, "lacks focus and energy, the character development is facile and thin."
  • Tear Jerker: In-universe; as Erin is driving home from interviewing people, she calls George, who tells her that her baby said their very first word. At first, Erin breaks out in a delighted smile, but then she starts crying at having missed that.
  • Testosterone Brigade: More than a few watched this movie for Julia Roberts in the wonderbra.
