YMMV: Lakeview Terrace
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Although this is the first time a racist Samuel L. Jackson terrorized Kerry Washington and her husband, it certainly wasn't the last.
- Jerkass Woobie: Even though Abel is racist to the couple, it's hard not to sympathize with him once you learn about his backstory.
- Moral Event Horizon: At the end, Abel totally crosses the line when he tries to kill to both Chris and Lisa.
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: You don't need to be white to be a racist. Plus, abuse of a position of power.
