YMMV / Mean Streets

  • Awesome Music: When Johnny Boy walks in with a chick on each arm. Slowmotion walking and "Jumpin' Jack Flash" just work, man. "Jumpin' Jack Flash" would work in a black screen anyway, but still.
    • "Be My Baby" is played over the opening credits, and it works magnificently, with the opening drum beats resembling gunshots.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Although he's only a supporting player, De Niro's performance as Johnny Boy stole the show in its original run and made him an overnight star. In light of De Niro's later roles, it's actually quite different, far more frenetic and unbalanced than the types he played later on.
