YMMV / Titanic: The Legend Goes On

  • Awesome Music: The song "Holding Me" (sung by Liz Callaway) is actually quite beautiful. Such a shame that it ended up in an atrocious movie.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: One of the mouse family is rescued by a dog, who then suddenly starts rapping for no apparent reason. Perhaps the most inexplicable scene in a film full of them, it's never mentioned again afterward, except when the chihuahua mentions being hit with a "food item."
    • It's slightly less of this in the uncut version, in which the dog introduces himself as the one in charge of the animals and gently scolds the mouse before rapping. The rap itself is also slightly different, and basically is the dog telling the other animals that they're having a party, so they need to steal food. Still, no one brings up the fact that it was a rap out of nowhere. In 1912.
  • Bile Fascination: To the point that those who haven't seen it question whether or not the movie actually exists or is just a silly web video made by an amateur.
  • Cliché Storm: The film has an insane list of clichés found in kids' movies (especially Disney ones). Talking animal characters, a bad character with incompetent henchmen, a girl with an evil stepfamily, Love at First Sight, Disneyfication gone mad, and more clichés are there to show its notoriety.
  • Designated Villain
    • Gaston. He's a bit slimy and dumb, yes. But there's the fact that he's treated like a jewel thief when the worst he did was pick Angelica's locket up off of the ground and give it to a girl he was wooing. He never actually stole the damned thing. Then again, the fact he didn't take the necklace to the Lost and Found section might make some people consider him just as bad as a thief.
    • Also, Tiger. He's treated like a villain for being Corynthia's pet and "looking like a bat."
  • Ear Worm: "PARTY TIME! PARTY TIME! Everybody's feeling fine cause it's party time!" The only ear worm worse than Revolution 9.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: The rapping dog is probably the biggest reason people even know about this movie, and he's easily the most (and quite possibly only) memorable thing in it.
  • Ethnic Scrappy: The Mexican mice.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Saturday Night Live 's TV Funhouse segment had their own wacky animated version of Titanic which of course is also a musical and rather Disney-like. Their ship was sentient as was the iceberg that sank it. Oh and they both get into a swordfight too... yeah.
  • Ho Yay
    • Both of the Dalmatians are modeled after Pongo, the male dog from 101 Dalmatians. That combined with both of them sounding rather masculine makes one wonder if maybe the puppies seen in the ending were just adopted.
      • Only in the uncut version does it specify the red one (named Kate) is female.
  • Jerk Ass Has A Point: The First Officer refuses to go back for William, as it may upset the ballast in the Life Boat, and everyone criticises him for “Being a sailor who is afraid of falling in the Water”. His concerns are justified, as there genuinely were protests from Crew and Passengers about Life Boats getting swamped and pulled under, which would likely result in everyone in those Life Boats freezing in the water too?
  • Memetic Mutation
    • IT'S PARTY TIME.
    • "If it hadn't been for you I would be now in someone else's digestion!"
  • Narm: All over the place.
  • Narm Charm: It's impossible not to love and revel in "Party Time"'s dumbness.
  • Painful Rhyme
    • "If you're feeling bluesto, there's something that you can do-sto. Dust off your dancing shoesto, and fiesta with Mucho Gusto!"
    • In the uncut version, this rhyme - and the entire song, in fact - isn't present (the mariachi mice are voiced by an actual mariachi band).
  • Signature Scene: "Party Time". That is all.
  • Strangled by the Red String
    • Our hero and heroine exchange three whole sentences before deciding they're meant to be.
    • In the epilogue the wicked stepsisters/nieces (Gertrude's daughters) have married Kirk and Dirk. Not only did the pair have no relationship developed before this, but they never actually interacted at all.
  • So Bad, It's Good:
    • It's made the top of several "worst movies ever" lists. Whether it's so soul-tainting bad that you can't bear it or whether it's so soul-taintingly bad it's a joy to make fun of is a matter of personal opinion.
    • The rapping dog; it's so random and so stupid, that it's funny.
  • Special Effects Failure: The lifeboats don't appear to have any ropes attached to them, so during the sinking scene they simply "hover" down the side of the ship into the water.
    • The Long shots of the Ship show all four funnels smoking...despite the fact that only three of the funnels actually did Smoke (The fourth was added to the design for decoration, and was used to provide ventilation for the boiler rooms).
  • They Just Didn't Care: The film recounts the real events of the ship's sinking, with a love story seemingly ripped from a more famous film, a bumbling detective story, the infamous rapping dog, and everyone living happily ever after, all told with the best animation $20 can buy.
  • This Is Your Premise on Drugs: This is Don Bluth, Walt Disney, and Looney Tunes on cocaine followed by a ton of Pepsi.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Once again, Party Time.
