YMMV / The Wizard of Speed and Time

  • Accidental Nightmare Fuel - To some, Jittlov's face might come off as a bit intense, perhaps even creepy.
  • Awesome Music - "I am the wizard of speed and time..."
  • Crosses the Line Twice: The Canadian and Mexican thugs are so blatantly stereotypical that they go beyond being offensive and come right back around to being hilarious.
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Jittlov pulling one over on Bookman and coming out ahead for the first time in the movie. From Mike's excited, "Yee-haw!" after switching the films all the way to getting to see his and Brian's names in the credits for the special after basically forcing Bookman to pay them in full and in cash.
    Brian: Our film's gone... our money's gone... What are we going to do now?
    Mike: [pulls the film reels out of his pockets with a huge grin on his face] I already did it.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Bookman's hired thugs are the source of some of the funniest moments in the film.
    • As the two are first putting on their policeman costumes:
      Canadian Thug: I dunno about this, eh. I mean, isn't it illegal to impregnate an officer?
    • When they're driving their prop car out of the studio:
      Canadian Thug: Like, I don't know how to drive a stick, eh.
      Mexican Thug: This is automatic!
      Canadian Thug: Then how come it isn't driving itself?
      Mexican Thug: Where did you learn how to drive anyway?
      Canadian Thug: The Autopia at Disneyland.
    • During the chase scene:
      Mexican Thug: Vamanos! Vamanos! Can't you speak English?!
      Canadian Thug: I'm Canadian, eh.
      Mexican Thug: Well, in that case: Mush!
  • Harsher in Hindsight - As detailed in the Life Imitates Art entry on the Trivia page, real life producer Richard Kaye played fictional Corrupt Corporate Executive Harvey Bookman, and later swindled Jittlov out of the movie's profits.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome - Despite the low budget, it's quite clear Jittlov spared no expense when it came to the stop motion animation of both the short and the film.
