YMMV / A Monster in Paris

Go To

  • Awesome Music:
    • "La Seine" ("The Seine") sung by Lucille and Francœur: The less good of them, but an excellent introduction to the goodness. By the way, in the French version, Francœur has the dulcet tones of Matthieu Chedid, and it will give you chills.
    • "Un monstre à Paris" ("A Monster in Paris"): A very sad song for the very sad scene where the true nature of the monster is revealed.
    • "Papa Paname" ("Daddy Paname", "Paname" being a nickname for Paris): A song that, in itself, isn't really integrated into the plot, but is very catchy and a pleasure to listen.

    • "L'amour dans l'âme" ("Love in the soul"): Again a very sad song, symbolizing Francœur's farewell as he's apparently dead...
    • "Un p'tit baiser" ("A lil' kiss"): An upbeat, cheerful and delicious jaunt as the movie goes from Downer Ending to Surprisingly Happy Ending in a few seconds when it's revealed that Francœur is alive!
  • Cliché Storm: Although it's pulled off relatively well. It helps that the cliches it's filled with are from different genres (there's a good smattering of horror tropes, for example).
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Lucille×Francœur, who were wildly shipped even before the movie came out.
  • Strangled by the Red String: Lucille and Raoul. Raoul's feelings for her are easily seen throughout the movie, but the final scene where Lucille says she's always loved him seems to come out of nowhere. Many fans feel that it was only added in to shoot down the potential for Francœur×Lucille to be canon due to the Squick their relationship would imply.

  • Ugly Cute: Francœur is, quite possibly, the most charming mutated, giant flea you will ever meet.
  • The Woobie:
    • Francœur.
    • Émile can count as this too. When the heroes try and find a way to make sure the police won't find Francœur:
      Émile: Why not shrink him back to his normal size? The smaller you are, the less you're noticed. I'm well-placed to know that...


How well does it match the trope?
