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.
What "Jack Sparrow" may have managed to do is Vindicated by History in reverse; Michael Bolton was a major YMMV singer at the height of his career. People either loved him or he was derided constantly. Now, 20 years later, the Internet generation, which is tilting toward a demographic that wasn't even born during his most successful years, loves him. For all the Tommy Boy references, Office Space jokes and What The Hell, Casting Agency? reaction to Lady Gaga's support for him, Michael Bolton may finally have the last laugh over his critics.
