YMMV: White Christmas

  • Awesome Music: It's from the Irving Berlin library, and sung by folks like Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. What more needs be said?
  • Heartwarming Moments: When Waverly walks into the floor room and the men who served under him in WWII stand up and start clapping.
  • Hollywood Homely: Benny Haynes, a.k.a. "Freckle-faced Haynes, the dog-faced boy".
  • Idiot Plot: If Betty had taken ten seconds to ask Bob whether the impression she got from Out-of-Context Eavesdropping was actually correct, or if Bob had realized something was really bothering her and asked her what, there wouldn't be any romantic plot conflict at all.
  • Squick: Vera-Ellen had a frighteningly thin waist bordering on Body Horror. You can practically see her gasping through her smile in some scenes.
  • Values Dissonance: Two words: Minstrel Number.
    • What a difference sixty years makes — Bob basically wants a wife who will stay in the kitchen and bear his children, and despite being career girls, neither Betty nor Judy have a problem with that, nor does Betty object to the implication that she'll have to give up show business to marry Bob. Although both guys admit that they can postpone their careers for family as well.
