YMMV / Strictly Ballroom

  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: See also: Slow Clap.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The flashback scene, which retells some of Scott's family history in a hilariously over-the-top manner. It helps budget cuts forced them from going with a realistic portrayal to making it cheesy and outlandish.
    • The scene with Ken and Liz in the spa, zooming out to reveal they are sitting in one of many on display at Ken's tub shop!
    • Also in Great Ken and Liz Moments:
    Liz: What do I want? I'll tell you what I want! I want Ken Railings to walk in here right now, and say 'Pam Shortt's broken both her legs, and I wanna dance with YOU!'
    *shot of Pam screaming in her truck as it rolls over*
    Ken (flinging open door, striding over to Liz, and speaking in monotone): Pam Shortt's broken both her legs, and I wanna dance with you.
  • Ham and Cheese: Barry Fife is made of this trope.
  • Hollywood Homely: Arguably a rare subversion. While Fran cleans up nicely she doesn't become conventionally beautiful.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Barry is just a conservative authority figure until the revelation that he lied to Scott about his father and fixed the competition beforehand to destroy Scott's credibility like he had done to Shirley.
