Added DiffLines:

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Some critics accused the film's basic story and characterization of being too similar to that of Creator/WesAnderson's previous film, ''Film/TheRoyalTenenbaums'', and didn't feel that the stylistic differences were enough to justify the similarity.


* PlayingAgainstType: Besides the aforementioned Owen Wilson (whose character even so has a hint of Wilson's usual laid back demeanor), there's Willem Dafoe as Klaus Daimler. Yes, Dafoe ''has'' a fair amount of range (he did play Jesus after all) but when you think "Willem Dafoe", do you usually think "chronically insecure guy [[WellDoneSonGuy desperately trying to gain the approval]] of a father figure only six years older than him"?



* TheRedStapler: The Adidas Rom track shoes made specifically for Team Zissou produced a demand for them in the real world. Although they were never made by Adidas, blogs popped up with directions on how to retrofit a pair and people also started selling them on eBay. Red beanies also became quite popular after the movie was released, with companies selling Ned's traffic light adorned cap.
** Until 2017 when Adidas did make some official shoes. Currently sold out, however.
* TheCastShowoff: Seu Jorge's David Bowie covers.
** Which are TranslatedCoverVersion , of course.
