** The ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' was originally going to be portrayed by O.J. Simpson, but according to director James Cameron, "people wouldn't have believed a nice guy like O. J. playing the part of a ruthless killer."

* The opening scene of the 2011 horror parody ''Film/{{Detention}}'' has a one-off joke about how "your lack of faith in the durability of Music/{{Kesha}} is disturbing." That joke became funny when Ke$ha did indeed seem to vanish off the face of the earth in the following years... only to become a lot ''less'' funny in 2016 when the world learned that Ke$ha's producer, Dr. Luke, had essentially destroyed her career through a combination of [[ExecutiveMeddling an ironclad contract]] and a history of [[RapeAsDrama sexual abuse]] that made her uncomfortable being in the same room as him, let alone working with him.

** It also makes the scene ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'' when Indy panics over an impending plane crash awkward. Although, [[GallowsHumor as a bit of dark comedy]], when Ford recounted the crash later that year, he said "I didn't crash, the [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] plane crashed!", echoing Indy's subsequent statement "We weren't brought here, our plane... crashed."

* The sequence in ''Film/ModernTimes'' where the Tramp is mistaken for a Communist and arrested before coming to enjoy prison life more than the outside world became very hard-hitting in 1952, when Charlie Chaplin's visa was revoked (keep in mind that he was a British citizen) under allegations of him being a Communist sympathizer. Furthermore, though Chaplin could have applied for re-entry into the US, he chose not to, finding life in exile to be far more appealing than life in America.

** A major RunningGag in the original trilogy is many parties wanting Han dead over botched smuggling jobs or unpaid debts; which continues into ''Film/TheForceAwakens'' in at least two key scenes. [[spoiler: Far less amusing come the final battle; where he's KilledOffForReal by Kylo Ren.]]

** Maybe not so much "funny" as "romantic", but ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack'' is now infamous for the scene where Luke and Leia make out in Echo Base. When the movie first came out, this would be an innocent ShipTease. But when you factor in [[ItWasHisSled the]] [[BrotherSisterIncest revelation]] in ''ReturnOfTheJedi''...''[[{{Squick}} Yeeeecchhh.]]'' Not to mention what Leia says in the next movie "...I've always known." (Worse, Creator/GeorgeLucas stated that he'd ''always'' intended Luke and Leia to be siblings. Oh, ''really''? Check out how Luke first meets Leia in ''Film/StarWars: Film/ANewHope'' and try not to puke.)

** Han's dismissive treatment of Obi-Wan Kenobi in ''Film/ANewHope'' would seem HilariousInHindsight since in ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', he becomes TheObiWan himself [[spoiler:until we see [[MentorOccupationalHazard he dies under similar circumstances]] as Obi-Wan as well.]]

** Just before the climax of ''Film/TradingPlaces'', Louis Winthorpe tells Billy Ray Valentine "Nothing in your life can prepare you for the unbridled carnage you're about to witness." and "In this building, it's either kill or be killed." as they walk into the WTC.
