* PoliticallyCorrectHistory: A minor example is that Edward was delivered by a Black doctor. Tim Burton actually had to fight studio heads for this, who claimed it was historically inaccurate for a Black doctor to have delivered a white baby at that point in history, but Burton won them over by arguing that all of Edward's stories are idealized in a certain way.

Will Bloom, a journalist (Billy Crudup), returns home with his wife to visit his dying father Edward (elder played by Creator/AlbertFinney, younger played by EwanMcGregor). He is displeased to find that his father continues to tell the same old {{tall tale}}s he's told all his life. Still, he's determined to [[TellMeAboutMyFather write his father's story]], and searches for some of the people his father crossed paths with. The further he searches, the more he finds that those stories might not be as far-fetched as they once seemed.

* DefectorFromParadise: Edward comes across the idyllic town of Spectre, where everyone is friendly, [[DoesNotLikeShoes everyone is barefoot]] (so that they can't leave via the forest), and the culture is in an eternal stasis. Edward eventually decides he can't stay here when there's so much else he wants to accomplish in life. A poet there, Norther Winslow, also leaves after he's realizing he hasn't been able to write a single decent poem since he arrived, and becomes a bank robber then businessman. [[spoiler: Years later they return and use their fortune to save the town from bankruptcy.]]

* DontExplainTheJoke: Edward tells Will's wife an old dad joke, then explains the punchline. You can see understand why Will got tired of listening to him.

* GrandRomanticGesture: Edward stages several of these to win over Sandra, the biggest being [[spoiler:the field of daffodils-- 'cause they're her favourite flower]].( Because Tim Burton wanted to avoid CGI in this film, [[spoiler: ''those are all real daffodils.'']])
