YMMV: Night of the Lepus
  • Angst? What Angst?: Amanda gets over losing her rabbit too easily.
  • Audience-Alienating Premise: See Nightmare Retardant.
  • Cult Classic
  • Guilty Pleasure: Makes a great film to watch on Easter.
  • Idiot Plot: Is actually a fairly standard, if dopey, ecological angst-type plot for the first third... until the "After we've dosed up these lab animals with an unknown serum, let's leave them alone and barely secured with a small child!" kicks in.
  • Narm: And how!
  • Nightmare Retardant: Given the whole 'took cute widdle nose-twitching pet bunnies and filmed them in extreme close-up' attitude to SFX on display here, it's really hard to take these Giant Killer Bunny Rabbits seriously even were you inclined to try. You're more likely to be scared of the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog.
  • The Scrappy: Many people hate Amanda for her constant screaming and making the plot possible.
  • Snark Bait: If you can't understand why, you're having trouble with the definition of 'snark' to begin with.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Really, you just can't hate this movie, simply because of its charming stupidity.
  • Special Effects Failure: Giant Killer Bunny Rabbits are shown stomp... er, hopping around obviously fake miniature sets.
    • Not to mention the scene with the rabbit attacking a guy in his bedroom, where it switches between a guy in a rabbit suit and a taxidermy rabbit.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Some reviewers have argued that the plot would've worked better if were Played for Laughs a la Airplane!.
