YMMV: Ratman's Notebooks

  • Adaptation Displacement: The original book was overshadowed by 1971 version of Willard, which was in turn overshadowed by its 2003 remake
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: Crispin Glover singing Ben during the end credits to the 2003 movie. Oh, and for good measure, he is accompanied by an accordion.
  • Cult Classic:
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Jerkass Woobie: Miss Leech from the 2003 movie
  • Moral Event Horizon: Ratman approaches the final line several times before he finally crosses it.
  • Squick
  • The Woobie: The Main Character, but more so in the movies than in the book.
    • Crispin Glover's Willard particularly gives us a really good performance of him. His fall into madness is really something to see, and his woobieness is just something that he alone could pull off. Some critics have even called this the best performance of Glover's career.
