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. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Top Gun
Discredited Meme: At the United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program (formerly known as TOPGUN) today, anyone on staff who quotes or references this movie gets fined $5.
Anyone caught singing "Danger Zone" while piloting a Tomcat, supposedly, is considered a hostile. It's hopefully all a joke, but ejected pilots who sing Take My Breath Away are to be shot at.
Considering that the only country that still has them on active duty is the Islamic Republic of Iran this may well be true.
Ho Yay: Put it this way; when the studio saw the initial cut, they made the film-makers call Cruise and McGillis back to shoot extra scenes, as the romance between Maverick and Charlie seemed so perfunctory compared to Maverick's "friendship" with Goose. Even in the finished product it's rather blatant — "I'm gonna have somebody's butt for this!", the volleyball scene, "You can be my wingman any time...", "This stuff gives me a hard-on."/"Don't tease me."
Even in the final version, Tom Cruise arguably has far more chemistry with Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards than he does with McGillis.
Karma Houdini: Iceman is one, sort of. When he and Mav engaged Jester, he broke away when Ghost Rider was exactly in position for the jet blast to hit. Therefore, Iceman is basically responsible for Goose's death. But nobody mentioned it or noticed, apparently. Not even Mav, who was there when it happened. While Ice isn't actually a bad guy, just arrogant, he still qualifies.
Values Dissonance: Although this movie is today often enjoyed ironically for its (arguably) unintentional Ho Yay, when it was first released in the U.S. it was wildly successful. In Japan, however, it was almost immediately branded a "gay" movie for those very reasons and is rarely viewed as anything else even today, possibly due to the choice of voice actors.
