* UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest: A rare instance of a film passing because of a musical sequence ("The Things I Will Not Miss").



* DuetOfDifferences: "The Things I Will Not Miss" crosses this trope with IWantSong for Sally and Maria, who agree to disagree about what they want out of life. The chorus even features the phrase "Different people look at life from different points of view".

* DuetOfDifferences: "The Things I Will Not Miss" crosses this trope with IWantSong for Sally and Maria, who agree to disagree about what they want out of life. The chorus even features the phrase "Different people look at life from different points of view". Interestingly, the film passes UsefulNotes/TheBechdelTest because of this song.



* MoodWhiplash: Basically the film's main problem, as we'll go from a scene that's an okay (if a bit slavish) modernization of the original film, then without much warning into a musical number patterned after ''Film/TheSoundOfMusic'' or ''{{Theatre/Camelot}}'', totally breaking up the film's flow.

* ShotForShotRemake: The first half-hour is tight re-enactment of the opening scenes of the Capra film, right down to the way some specific shots are framed. Even after they get to Shangri-La and the musical numbers start up, it still doesn't stray all that much from the original.

Added DiffLines:

* HeterosexualLifePartners: Lovett and Barnard don't even know each other at the start of the film but quickly become VitriolicBestBuds and seem well on their way to becoming this.


Added DiffLines:

* IceCreamKoan: Surprisingly averts this. The High Lama is philosophical but straightforward in his way of expressing things. Chang is very cagey but that's mainly because he knows that it takes a while for everyone to understand what's happening in Shangri-La.

* HairTriggerAvalanche: Both versions have this in the final stretch as Richard, George and Maria try to return to TheOutsideWorld.
** In the 1937 film, it is caused by the porters playfully fooling around with the brothers' guns and shooting them off.
** In the 1973 film, because they're busy helping Maria, who is too weak to walk (in hindsight, she's RapidAging) the brothers fall behind the porters and call out to them to stop. ''Oops.''
