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.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The opening Bubsy Berkeley-esque dance number, which is weird in itself, but certain elements of the number ramp this up even further — for instance, the huge sound-stage the dancers disappear into, which is apparently somewhere inside the club, the fact that they can all apparently rise back into a standing position from a grounded scissor-split, and when Willie somehow turns several red hankerchiefs plucked from the dancers' lapels into a huge red sheet (well, she does mention her grandfather was a magician....). All in all, very strange indeed.
Complete Monster: Mola Ram kidnaps children from their families and forces them to work like slaves in dangerous mines for the stones and beats them mercilessly...and brainwashing them to the Cult of Kali. If Indy hadn't arrived on time, it could be possible that the cult would have killed the children anyway. And there's the way he sacrifices people to Kali Mah....
The Scrappy: Willie. By God, is she annoying. Not helped by the fact that she screams constantly and is made up of nothing but female stereotypes. Even her actress called her "not much more than a dumb screaming blonde".
Special Effects Failure: The movie contains some fairly obvious matte paintings. But most notably, Mooks fall into crocodile-infested water and... cut to crocodiles eating empty clothes with scream sound effects dubbed over.
Not to mention Willie herself, as she is a culmination of the worst sexist stereotypes about women ever put together in a movie (vain diva, screaming damsel-in-distress, dumb blonde, useless hostage, etc).
