YMMV / The Hooker with a Heart of Gold

  • Acting for Two: Brad Jones plays two of the villains, the brothers Zalman and Steele.
  • Actor Allusion: Zalman makes references to low budget films much like the Snob does. Both of his performances have shades of the Snob character, if the Snob were a sociopath.
  • Cast Incest: The actors who play Doctor Rogen and the hooker are married, as are the actors who play Steele/Zalman and Janet.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: In part 2, the hooker knocks Matty out, takes his gun and shoots Zalman with it.
    • The gun battle from part 5. That whore really can shoot.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: The whole entire soundtrack! Not one single song is out of place.
  • The Danza: Subverted. Dr. Rogen looks like Seth Rogen, but is not played by him, a fact even the director can't get his head around.
  • Fetish Fuel: Hookers, Brad Jones's voice, a Woobie drunk Mad Scientist, mobsters in nice suits, Brad Jones's voice, Jillian's ... tracts of land ... the movie is a goldmine of Fetish Fuel.
  • Nausea Fuel / Nightmare Fuel: One scene has Steele threatening his love interest (actually Brad's Real Life wife) by threatening to kill her like he did his ex girlfriend. He does this by showing her the body of his ex, which is locked away in a room bathed in Red lighting, then proceeds to have sex with his current girlfriend in front of the dead body.
    • The heart removal scene from the end of part 4, set to Neil Young's "Heart of Gold".
  • What an Idiot: During the chase scene in Part 1, the hooker runs into an alley and looks around the corner. As soon as Zalman appears, what she should have done was pull back... what she did do was keep looking, allowing him to see her.
  • The Woobie: The hooker.
    • Janet. She gets forcibly given to Steele.
