|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.

YMMV: The History Boys
- Ho Yay: Everybody/Anyone. It's set in an all-boys school and the whole class has great rapport (and are mostly Bishōnen), so any ship floats, despite the fact only a handful of characters are explicitly gay.
- Tear Jerker: Hector's funeral, where the boys sing "Bye Bye Blackbird" and Ms. Lintott monologues about what happens to each of them in the future.
- The Woobie: Posner. He spends half the film looking like he's about to cry.
