YMMV / Just Imagine

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: Likely why the film flopped. Yes it's a musical, but Just Imagine is let down by its tendency to stop for songs and vaudeville routines that have nothing to do with the plot. This might be excusable if there were some nice toe-tapping tunes among them, but none of the songs are that good.
  • Ethnic Scrappy: El Brendel as Single-0. He was resonably popular when the movie was released, but modern viewers tend to find him dull.
  • Unintentional Period Piece: An interesting example. The "nostalgic" scenes from the 1930's were meant to be ironic, as they took place in the then-present time, but now they seem just as old-fashioned as the characters treat them.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: If nothing else, the special effects were awesome for their time.
