YMMV / Hancock

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
    • Hancock leaving at the end in order to save Mary's life, so that both can heal and get their powers back.
    • Ray gets his CMOA on when Hancock is down and a trigger pull away from getting his brains spread over the floor, who shows up with an axe to disarm the bad guy before killing him.
    • "My Zagnut bar versus your gun."
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: When Hancock follows up on his threat to shove a guy's head up his friend's ass. It gets even funnier when the Sanford and Son theme song kicks in.
    • [shows a comic book with a picture of a spandex clad superhero on it] "Homo." [shows him another comic with a hero in red spandex] "Homo in red." [shows him a third comic with a blonde-haired hero] "Norwegian homo."
    • The annoying French kid getting thrown into the sky. Bet he'll never call anybody an asshole again.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "No Hancock, you did a good job!"
    • "Look up," provided one can overlook the gravity of the defacement of something that visible and significant.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Ray bandies the word "change" in his Allheart pitch, in a 2008 movie with a black dude as superhero.
    • The whole premise of the movie is pretty hilarious by itself, by anyone who was read or watched One-Punch Man, as both Hancock and Saitama has similar backgrounds, albeit Saitama got his powers by training really hard for three years and breaking his limiter, compared with Hancock, who is immortal. Hell, both of them even have done impossibly awesome while on the Moon!
  • Squick: "Your head is going up his ass." And dear God, it does. He makes a similar threat to the carload of thieves; "Your head is going up the driver's ass, his head is going up your ass, and you drew the short stick, cause your head is going up my ass."
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Some critics claimed that the first half of the movie was the best part and that the rest of the film wasted the potential of that plot. Others claim the second half could have been a groundbreaking superhero drama if developed fully rather than wasting the first half of the movie being funny. Possibly they're both right, and the movie just generally suffers from trying to be two different movies at the same time.
  • What an Idiot!: Michelle, the French bully, and Red, the Big Bad, both call Hancock an asshole, and even after Hancock says that's his Berserk Button, they continue to press said button anyway, despite knowing who Hancock is, at least to an extent. Needless to say, they get their asses handed to them for it.
