YMMV: Say Anything

Related to the film:

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Jeremy Piven, playing a crazy hyperactive guy who screams at someone called "Lloyd"? Yeah...
    • Bebe Neuwirth and John Mahoney both appear in this movie; they would later go on to be a recurring guest star and main cast member, respectively, on Frasier.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Are you more romantic than Lloyd Dobler?"
    • In a broader sense, Lloyd's "holding up the stereo" pose has been imitated numerous times.
  • Tear Jerker: Lloyd's phone call to his sister after he and Diane break up.
    A pen. She gave me a pen. I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.

Related to the band:

  • Crosses the Line Twice: "Property" has a spoken word section by Bemis that quickly crosses the line.
    "If you do have to sell your body once... Twice... Seven times... It'll be worth it!"
  • Face of the Band: Max.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Chad Gilbert's and Hayley Williams's guest appearances on In Defense of the Genre is a little more awkward once you learn that Chad was rumored to have left his wife for Hayley. Said ex-wife is Sherri Dupree...Max's wife.
  • Narm Charm: Max's delivery of the band's cover of "Got Your Money" by ODB makes it even greater.
  • Paranoia Fuel: "Rats."
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some fans say this of the new music. They've progressed, but they're just keeping from going stale.
