YMMV: Piranha 3D
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: Yep, you guessed it: by far the most talked-about scene is the underwater nude ballet.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The nude ballet scene. The Italian aria just adds to the weirdness awesome.
    • The lizard-like creature that appears in the original. It's presumably another government experiment, but never explained.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: They took my penis!
  • Dude, Not Funny!: Most of the gore in the first movie went from exaggerated to this for some viewers due to how realistic it is. The massacre at the lake can be pretty hard to sit through.
  • Ensemble Dark Horse: In just two short scenes Christopher Lloyd manages to upstage everybody else in the film.
    • Kelly Brooks's character, Danni, is pretty much the fan favorite of the film
  • Sequelitis: The general consensus is that 3DD is inferior to the previous movie, with most criticism focusing on the increased comedic slant.
  • So Bad, It's Good: A likely intentional example of this with both this and 3DD.
  • Special Effects Failure: The gore in the 3D remake. Almost inverted; a lot of the time it comes across as too realistic, which makes it more disturbing than Bloody Hilarious.
