* PresentDayPast: (movie only) A 2008-up Ford Escape with the "NYC'''T'''AXI" logo introduced in 2007 is prominent in the trailer's first street scene. Overlaps into AnachronismStew - Oskar's dad films him on Super 8 rather than the then-common VHS-C.

* OscarBait: A DoubleSubversion. Despite being critically drubbed upon release, it still somehow got a Best Picture nomination, almost purely for its subject material. Creator/MaxVonSydow's nomination was almost entirely chalked up to the fact he was a Hollywood institution whose Oscar was sorely overdue, and he might have won had he not been up against the similarly overdue Christopher Plummer.

* UnusualEuphemism: Oskar's mother forbids him from using profanity, which leads to the phrases 'Dipshiitake', 'Fukuzawa you', and 'succotash my balzac'.

* BillingDisplacement: Noticeably [[AvertedTrope averted]]. Despite Creator/TomHanks and Creator/SandraBullock's roles as Oskar's parents,Thomas Horn is the only actor to feature prominently on the movie poster. Indeed, you would have to look quite closely to realize Creator/TomHanks or Creator/SandraBullock were even in it.
* BrickJoke: Oskar promises to donate his pocket money towards diabetic research for lying to Abby Black. Chapters later, he receives a letter thanking him for the 50 cents he donated.

Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Schell is derived from a German word meaning 'noisy' or 'loud', an allusion to the title. However, it is also an ironic reference to Oskar's grandfather's inability to speak due to trauma, and Oskar's own problems in dealing with his grief.
