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 infamous Groin Attack. Could also be seen as Narm assuming it was meant to be dramatic.
    • The ending is this. At the end of the film, Novak gets eaten by a man-sized piranha. What makes it an example of this trope is that Piranha 3DD never even mentions it, much less expands upon it.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: They took my penis!
  • 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.
    • Ving Rhames' Deputy Fallon, especially in his badass final scene.
  • Ham and Cheese: Jerry O'Connell as the porn producer.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • The piranhas from the original looked like props and did kind of look ghoulish. Here, they look positively demonic...and there's a good chance that they HATE you as well as want you for food. The last shot of one of the trailers can attest.
    • The massacre. Words do not do justice. And the second film had them attacking a waterpark!
  • Signature Scene: The underwater nude ballet, with the Spring Break massacre not far behind.
  • So Bad, It's Good: A likely intentional example.
  • 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.
  • Squick: Believe us when we say that no one wanted to see two piranhas fighting over a severed penis.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Despite the above, the piranha in the movie are completely CGI, and yet they really look believable.
