The YMMV moments and issues in Man of La Mancha.

  • Crowning Moment of Funny: The entire play is performed by a cell full of criminals. Watching grubby scraggly miscreants acting like ogres, gypsies, and priests is hysterical.
    • Within the show itself, "Knight of the Woeful Countenance" and "I Like Him" are hysterical.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: Even The Duke sings along to the final reprise of "The Impossible Dream."
    • Just like in the Crowning Moment of Funny, this is performed by a cell full of criminals. In the opening scene, they all seem to be completely without sympathy or hope, but as they perform the play they have the time of their lives and completely get swept away with the story. By the end of the play, they all seem to be genuinely inspired and content, even though they all will no doubt be awaiting torture or execution shortly.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome: A rich store from which to chose, but undoubtedly the topper is "The Impossible Dream". "I, Don Quixote" and "Aldonza" count, too (though in very different ways!)
  • WTH? Casting Agency: Even Pinky and The Brain made fun of Sophia Loren's performance.
