YMMV: Flower Drum Song
- Adaptation Displacement: The play and film are much better remembered than the original novel.
- Mexicans Love Speedy Gonzales: Some Chinese-Americans love this musical, simply because it is about them, no matter how stereotypical. Of course, there are others who find it completly offensive. Truly a YMMV.
- Values Dissonance: although Fair for Its Day, Flower Drum Song is to Chinese-Americans as The King and I is to the Thai.
