** Also, the plot of the movie: HighSchool students murdering each other due to rivalries and popularity. Absurd for 1989, real for UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} (1999) and Virginia Tech (2007), hence why we're not going to get a remake any time soon.

Added DiffLines:

* An ad for ''Film/AlienCovenant'' that crossed over with ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' featured Rick's fondness for alcohol and drugs [[DrugsAreGood save him from a facehugger]]. Lope, a character in the movie proper, is a CigerChomper--and enjoyed no such protection.

* In ''Film/TheBluesBrothers'', one iconic scene has Jake and Elwood heroically running down a group of neo-Nazis with their car. In August 2017, several counter-protesters during a massive white supremacy rally in Charlottesville, Virginia were mowed down, one of whom was killed, by one supremacist with his car.

* In the pool party scene of ''Film/LaLaLand'', {{Creator/Emma Stone}}'s character taunts {{Creator/Ryan Gosling}}'s piano-player character by shouting, "Hey! George Michael!" at him. The film's script was written in 2011, but by the time the movie had been greenlit and completed, becoming popular in December 2016, {{Music/George Michael}} died of heart failure later that month, making the joke seem ill-timed and TooSoon.

* In ''Film/TommyBoy'', when Tommy tells Richard he'd finally graduated from college, he says "You know, a lot of people go to college for seven years.", to which Richard replies "[[DeadpanSnarker I know, they're called doctors]].". Since then, college education has gotten so expensive that it isn't uncommon for people to take at least 5 years to work towards their degree.

* In ''Disney/{{Moana}}'', Maui's [[AwesomeEgo huge ego]] and Moana telling him that he's "nobody's hero" due the repercussions of his actions (which was supposed to be a humorous victory for her) get a ''lot'' less funny once you learn that [[spoiler:Maui originally wanted to help people, and he views himself as worthless without his powers]].

** There's also the RunningGag in the first film about Yondu being accused of going soft becasue of his treatment of Peter and his reluctance to deliver him to his father. [[spoiler: Come this film, Yondu really was helping Peter survive on his own, becoming a ParentalSubstitute towards him; and even dies trying to help Peter escape from Ego.]]

** Two in ''RV'': The first, when the RV rolls over Robin Williams' character and he narrowly misses being crushed, and another when he walks into a lake after the RV when it rolls underwater and disappears (he comes out a few seconds later with one of the bikes from the back, but it's still rather tense)

* In ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', Peter and Ego have a nice reunited father-and-son bonding moment as they play catch with a ball of energy Peter has manifested with his newly discovered Celestial powers. [[spoiler:Then it turns out that Ego doesn't care about Peter and is just using him as a pawn in his plan to replace all life in the Galaxy with extensions of himself.]]

** One of the biggest in both Star Wars and pop culture history occurs in ''Film/RogueOne''. For nearly four decades, Star Wars fans have mocked the Empire for [[SelfDestructButton the infamous exhaust vent]] that allowed Luke to blow up the Death Star with a single torpedo strike. After this film revealed [[spoiler: that the flaw was purposely created by the main designer, who was being held captive by the empire, and that the schematics to exploit that flaw were only obtained by the Rebel Alliance in a horrifically bloody battle that destroyed dozens, if not hundreds of lives on both sides]], it doesn't seem so funny anymore.
