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.
