|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: Three Kings
- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Two related examples:
- Throughout the movie, several of the characters feel that the U.S. should have gone farther in the war, helping rebels and/or getting rid of Saddam Hussein. Then the 2003 invasion occurs.
- One of the characters who is against a further invasion even says "What do you want, another Vietnam?"
- And, of course, the Iraqi man who stayed behind "to fight Saddam". We know how well that worked out for them when the U.S. pulled out.
- Nightmare Fuel: Any of the torture scenes. Special mention to being forced to drink oil.
- Retroactive Recognition: Judy Greer (the reporter banging Major Gates loudly) wasn't well-known at the time, and the terrified daughter of the executed Iraqi woman? Alia Shawkat (Maeby Fünke).
