In many ways, it's like a modern day Literature/RobinsonCrusoe. The film was a massive commercial and critical success, with Hanks being praised (and eventually nominated for the Best Actor Oscar) for his performance, which required him to undergo a drastic physical transformation and spend the majority of the film alone on screen.

* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:It's gradually revealed that Chuck came very close to taking his own life. Good thing he did a "dry run" first with a dummy, or else he would've just broken his legs and died of exposure or dehydration.]]

* GallowsHumor: With a rotten tooth Chuck mentions to Wilson, a volleyball, that his dentist back home was named Dr. Spalding. The joke gets an IronicEcho later, but when we hear the name again after [[spoiler:the man who married Kelly identifies himself as an acquaintance of Spaulding]], suffice to say, the joke is a lot less funny.
