YMMV / Zero Hour

The 1957 film

  • Retroactive Recognition: Sterling Hayden playing Captain Martin Treleaven will probably make modern audiences think of Brigadier General Jack D. Ripper.
  • "Seinfeld" Is Unfunny: Or, rather, Zero Hour! is funny; it has been noted that, what with Airplane! and all, it's very nearly impossible to watch Zero Hour! with a straight face anymore.
    • It's also not as overly melodramatic (and therefore not as silly) as some other Disaster Movies might be, but it gets lumped right in with them anyway. Case in point: Warner Home Video marketed the DVD as part of their "Cult Camp Classic" line of films.
