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.
Jerkass Woobie: Barely, but Crisp towards the end could be considered this. He seriously loves his son and the look on his face shows authentic joy when he confronts him and real sadness when his son doesn't recognize him. Yeah, he takes him as a hostage, but he could have just bluffed.
What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Tough guy Arnold Schwarzenegger finds himself out of his depth when he has to deal with a class of adorable children: a heartwarming family comedy, right? Well, not really. Between the crackhouse shoot-out that introduces Kimble in all his Badass glory, to an abusive father getting punched by the hero, to the blue-lipped junkie cold on the slab after being spiked by the villain, to Kimble dreaming of Crisp shooting him, to O'Hara being caught having noisy sex with her fiancÚ, to Crisp holding his own five year old son hostage, to Crisp getting shot three times in the chest, to Kimble bleeding out in the corner of a bathroom as Eleanor Crisp demands her grandson, the film is definitely not for children.
