YMMV / Tomboy

Go To

YMMV for Tomboy the 2011 film

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Laure a female-to-male transgender boy, genderqueer, or a tomboy? According to Céline Sciamma, this was deliberately left ambiguous, so that a wide range of people could watch the movie and think, "That was my childhood."

YMMV for Tomboy the comic book

  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: Almost every single characters are either corrupt, evil or insane. At the end of Issue 11, one of the two likable characters left, Addison's father, has been killed off.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Jessica and Addison. In the first issue Addison jokes that them having the same ringtone is like they're married, causing Jessica to joke that she should have asked Addison's father for permission. Owen Trent, who was implied to have feelings for Jessica despite their parents' animosity, told Addison that Jessica truly loved her and that were she forced to choose between them she would have chosen Addison. Tragically, this was said at Jessica's funeral, after Addison mercy-killed her following her being tortured by Irene Trent's henchmen.
    • Irene and Elena, with the former states that the latter is the most beautiful thing she's ever seen after Elena awakens her power.

  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: After the first few issues present a very different trajectory than what the series ultimately became, some fans were disappointed that Addison's adventures as a masked vigilante trying to avenge her boyfriends murder, with some Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane instances ultimately became so trippy and apathy-inducing.


How well does it match the trope?
