Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: The Girl in Gold Boots
Ass Pull: Oh, did we mention that Critter's a crack fighter? No? Well, he is.
That's not a special effect. Film jumps happen like that when the film breaks and is manually taped back together, missing frames.
Values Dissonance: Critter becoming a draft dodger for the Vietnam War is treated (at least by himself) as being an unforgivable act which will put him on the FBI's Most Wanted list. Although the draft was unpopular, the movie was filmed in 1968, when draft dodgers were prosecuted if discovered. Eventually President Gerald Ford offered conditional amnesty to persons who had dodged the draft, with President Jimmy Carter giving an unconditional pardon to all draft dodgers in 1977. This makes Critter's treatment of draft-dodging as such a horrible crime seem a little strange from a modern perspective.
Even then Critter is playing it up a bit much. The Most Wanted list is Exactly What It Says on the Tin: a list of international terrorists, serial killers, kiddy porn producers, and other people horrible enough to be considered the Most Wanted criminals. If draft dodging was all it took to be lumped in with that crowd the Ten Most Wanted would be more like the Ten Thousand Most Wanted.
Michelle seems more disgusted that Critter is a draft dodger than the fact that her boss is a sleazy violent mobbed-up drug dealer who has already gotten her to smoke pot and is showing signs of wanting to pimp her out (go meet customers, go to parties, etc).
