YMMV / Scent of a Woman

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
    • The entire final speech but special mention to "If I was the man I was five years ago, I'd take a FLAMETHROWER to this place!"
    • Frank's tango with Gabrielle Anwar
    • Charlie refusing to leave Frank when he is about to kill himself and successfully talks the Colonel out of it.
  • He Really Can Act: While Chris O'Donnell may be more famous for his nippled Batsuit, he deserves some love here for holding his own against Pacino.
  • Mainstream Obscurity: *happily* Hey, it's that film where Al Pacino finally won an Oscar! *angrily* Hey, it's that film that robbed Denzel Washington and Robert Downey, Jr. of the Best Actor Oscar!....wait, the film's about what again?
  • One-Scene Wonder: Gabrielle Anwar.
  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • Chris O'Donnell would go on to play Robin in Batman Forever and Batman & Robin.
    • Philip Seymour Hoffman would have a 20-year, very diverse career until his death in 2014.
    • Gabrielle Anwar would go on to play Fiona Glenanne on the TV series Burn Notice.
