YMMV: Uncle Sam
  • Anvilicious: The heroes are a crippled veteran who regrets his service and a draft-dodger. The villain is the reanimated corpse of a Sociopathic Soldier who is so hyperpatriotic that he dresses as a national symbol and kills anyone he feels disgraces the nation. It's obvious how the filmmakers feel about political stances.
  • Critical Research Failure: School, in July.
    • Could be summer school.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Post-9/11, the film's themes became quite relevant again.
  • Memetic Molester: Sam; there's an even an Easter egg in one of the DVD releases that shows a montage of his more... dubious moments.
  • Narm Charm: Sam shuffling after Willie (the Uncle Sam on stilts) in the middle of the night.
  • Squick: Sam pinning his medals to his rotted flesh.
