YMMV: Peter's Friends

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Roger, after hearing that Peter is HIV positive suggests that they might find a cure for AIDS. This can get really depressing when you realise it's been twenty years since this film came out and, while the prospects of HIV positive people have improved, we're still long way away from a cure.
    • As sad that is, the ending gets even worse when considering that HIV didn't have an effective treatment when the movie was made and that in 1982, it was a death sentence.
  • Hollywood Pudgy: This is probably what the filmaker's were getting at with all of Maggie's sack-like dresses, but it doesn't hide the fact that Emma Thompson is utterly stunning.
