YMMV: Some Like It Hot

  • Ho Yay: "Daphne" and Osgood - although Osgood thinks Jerry's a woman, when he reveals himself to be a man, Osgood doesn't seem too fazed.
    • Though the fact that Osgood is obviously slightly senile might explain the reaction.
  • Values Dissonance: Joe's method of seducing Sugar, namely manipulating her into kissing him by making up a tragic story about never having been able to feel anything for a woman before, comes off a little rapey by today's standards.
    • Until you realize that Sugar is lying to him too (though more subtlely than he is), plying him with alcohol, and encouraging him to kiss her even though he says he's not interested in women in general or in anything they're doing. It comes off a little like trying to convert a gay guy by today's standards.
    • Basically, neither one of them is a very good person, but we mostly like them anyway.
    • Well, nobody's perfect.
  • The Woobie: Sugar when she recounts and experiences tales of having her heart broken by scumbag men. As she sings "I'm Through With Love" at the end, Joe has a Heel Realization and realizes he actually cares about her, unlike the countless girls he's used in the past.
    Story of my life, I always get the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
