YMMV: Over the Top

  • Cult Classic: Although it was unsuccessful both critically and commercially, this movie does have its share of fans.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Simon
  • Moral Event Horizon: Jason Cutler has a large number of Kick the Dog moments, but the two highest contenders for this are either him locking up all of Lincoln's letters to his family over the years and trying to convince Michael that Lincoln never cared about his family (and trying to continue to play this angle when Michael finds the letters) or him hiring a bunch of goons with the mission of kidnapping Michael (and bringing him to his home) and roughing Lincoln up.
  • They Just Didn't Care: Stallone's character is referred to as both "Hawk" and "Hawkes" at different points during the film.
