YMMV / Even Stevens

  • The Cast Showoff: A few examples, most notably Christy Carlson Romano (Ren), A.J. Trauth (Twitty) and to a lesser degree Lauren Frost (Ruby).
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: In "Leavin' Stevens," Louis misses the chance to express his true feelings to Tawny on what is supposed to be his last day at school. He makes a tape instead, in which he confesses his love for her; when it turns out that his family is no longer moving to Washington, he has Beans sneak into her room and steal the tape, but it turns out to be the tape that Tawny has made in order to express her love for Louis. In what is arguably one of the defining moments of the series, the two of them watch each other's tapes simultaneously and then encounter each other at school the next day.
  • Ear Worm:
    • "We went to the moon in 1969..."
    • All the songs in that episode.
    • The theme song's pretty cool too.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The opening of Even Stevens has Ren and Louis Stevens fighting over the TV, before using their remotes as Lightsabers to duel over the use of the TV, and then accidentially blowing up the TV set. The Pajamas Media show ZONATION's opening has the host, Alfonzo Rachel channel cruising while becoming increasingly irritated at what he's seeing before deliberately destroying his TV set by throwing his remote into it.
  • Les Yay: In the episode 'All About Yvette' when Ren goes Clingy Jealous Girl over her BFF (for the first 2-3 episodes anyway) Charlotte's old BFF Yvette visiting. And then there is a scene at a school dance when Ren goes to the bathroom and is about to reapply her lipstick, but then sighs and says "What's the point?" because she is so distraught about Charlotte not paying attention to her.
  • Tear Jerker: The ending of "Sibling Rivalry."
  • Women Are Wiser: It has been pointed out that the women in Even Stevens are presented as "so much more competent than the men": We can see this both in the triad Louis, Tawny, and Twitty and within the Stevens family.
