Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Reality Bites
Designated Hero: The main characters are essentially whiny brats who complain about having privileged lives and have no qualms about hurting the people that care about them just because they're "above it all".
Troy especially, who can be condescending, seems to love how clever he seems and is almost proto-hipster like in his dislike for The Man, yet the film seems to want the audience to root for him to get together with Lelaina, not Micheal, a perfectly nice and even Adorkable guy because...He is a yuppie? He has a good job?
Designated Villain: Although he's supposed to be the film's "bad guy", many viewers consider Michael to be the most sympathetic character in the movie.
