YMMV / Kramer vs. Kramer

  • One-Scene Wonder: Technically JoBeth Williams is in more than one scene, but let's hear it for her feature film debut: her horribly embarrassed naked conversation in the hallway with half-asleep Billy asking her if she likes fried chicken.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The court system is inherently prejudiced against men when it comes to child custody battles. This was an anvil that desperately needed to be dropped back then, and we still need reminding of today. The fact Joanna came so close to getting full custody of her son even after abandoning him, and only averts this by giving up her fight, drives it home.
  • Tear Jerker: Arguably the movie as a whole.
