YMMV / The Pearl

  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: Never attempt to better yourself or your family, it will end horribly. Also, helping your child is greedy.
    • Alternatively, you should let yourself get exploited by a corrupt system instead of trying a different method of getting what you're owed or terrible things with happen to you.
    • Oh, and let your husbands abuse you, ladies! It's ok because all men are Crazy Awesome.
  • Tear Jerker: Regardless how you feel about the story, there's no denying that Coyotito's death is incredibly sad.
