YMMV: 50 First Dates
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Henry's first recap video for Lucy claims that the Red Sox have won the World Series since her accident. This is followed by "Just kidding!" The movie came out in 2004, just a few months before the Red Sox won their first World Series of the 21st century.
    • Barrymore's next movie, which she produced as well as acted in? Fever Pitch, loosely set across the backdrop of the 2004 Red Sox season.
  • Tearjerker: The day where Lucy realizes on her own what has happened to her and the fact that this is not the first time it's happened.
    • Lucy and Henry tearing up Lucy's scrapbook so she'll have no memories of being with him.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Some critics complained that the movie didn't live up to the promise of re-teaming Sandler and Barrymore after their more familiar collaboration.
  • The Woobie: Lucy, full stop.
