YMMV: Sherlock, Jr.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Keaton's character alters the $1 gift to say $4, which happens to be the exact sum the thief got for pawning the watch.
  • Crowning Moment Of Awesome:
    • The pool game.
    • The quick change.
    • The motorcycle ride.
    • That's one tricky bike ride.
    • Basically every stunt in the movie, aided by the knowledge it's Keaton doing everything himself.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The motorcycle ride, especially Sherlock Jr.'s Double Take when he realizes he's riding solo.
    • The ending, which crosses into definite Getting Crap Past the Radar territory.
    • The scene at the very beginning with the spare dollars.
    • "Shadow your man closely."
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: The extended jump-cut segment at the start of the Dream Sequence. No Chroma Key here — for each shot, they went to a new location and Buster carefully recreated his last pose at the precisely the same distance from the camera.
