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.
The movie and book
Anvilicious: If you drink, join AA. If you know, are related to, or brush someone on the street who drinks, make them join AA and join Al-Anon yourself.
Crazy Awesome: Griffin, the British Jumper from the movie, everything he says & does is awesome & crazy & both. Most of the Awesome in the movie is his.
Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: The movie adaptation. Depending on how you ask, some people might be slightly sympathetic to the antagonists, though ultimately neither side is composed of adjusted, decent human beings.
Ensemble Darkhorse: Griffin has the reputation to be far more popular than the main characters. His popularity resulted in a video game spinoff centered on him. Whether it's because he's such a Crazy-Prepared Badass or because he's played by Jamie Bell or both is your choice. Becomes Harsher in Hindsight when Jamie Bell revealed that he hated the production of the movie (More details on The Other Wiki).
