Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Less Than Jake's "We're All Dudes" with Kel Mitchell providing vocals. They had never played the song in concert, except for a show in Chicago in 2008. And who should join them on stage, but Herbert J. Budworth dressed as Ed!!
Critical Dissonance: Compare the negative reaction from critics, and how fondly it's remembered now, with modern reactions to the movie tending to place it in So Bad, It's Good territory. Even at the time of its release, it still fit, managing to make a small profit for Nickelodeon despite being bashed by critics.
Critical Research Failure: Auto insurance follows the registered owner of the vehicle, NOT the driver. Sinbad could have filed a claim under Dexter's mother's policy, avoiding all of the events of the story.
Ear Worm: "I'm a dude, he's a dude/She's a dude, 'cause we're all dudes. HEY!..."
Evil Is Sexy: Roxanne. Kurt and his henchmen may also qualify.
Heartwarming Moments: Dexter calling Ed "buddy" and Ed taking it to heart, and Ed buying Dexter a light-up yo-yo with his wages (that are severely depleted because Dexter is scamming him) after he hears Dexter's Disappeared Dad story come to mind.
George Clinton and Sinbad appearing in a movie alongside Kenan Thompson is funny (or funnier) when you realize that George Clinton and Sinbad are two of the many celebrity impressions Kenan Thompson has done on Saturday Night Live. Funnier still when you realize that George Clinton was the first celebrity Kenan Thompson played on SNL.
Ho Yay: There's more than quite a bit between Ed and Dexter.
