YMMV: To Die For
- Alternative Character Interpretation: Some see Jimmy as a villain others see him as Suzanne's victim. Suzanne can also be seen as an admirably ambitious woman who is a victim of her clingy husband. She also occasionally gives the impression of being somewhat dimwitted but it is implied that this is a farce to get people to underestimate her.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: Casey Affleck plays the victim of a sociopathic monster who survives on charm and thinks nothing of destroying everyone around her. 15 years later, he played Lou Ford in The Killer Inside Me who was a male Suzanne without the career ambitions.
- Magnificent Bitch: Again, Suzanne.
- Retroactive Recognition: Joaquin Phoenix and Casey Affleck in his first big role.
