This movie is not exceptionally well remembered today. Indeed, lots of people only know about it due to being one of the earlier lead roles of MorganFreeman and for the controversy of it winning when ''Film/DoTheRightThing'' wasn't even nominated (although [[MisaimedFandom it isn't, and was never intended to be, about race relations]], unlike the latter film). And sometimes for being called "bullshit" in PublicEnemy's "Burn Hollywood Burn".

* {{Callback}}: In the beginning of the film Hoke describes how there's a nice patch of dirt in the backyard that he could turn into a vegetable garden, Daisy refuses and demands that he stop messing with her things. Near the end of the film (15-20 years later) they're seen working on a beautiful vegetable garden in her backyard.

** Sometimes overlaps with SweetHomeAlabama and the state itself was visited once.
* DefrostingIceQueen: Daisy was really cold to Hoke at first, forbidding him from doing much anything. Through the movie, she grew fond of him.



* OldRetainer: Hoke.

to:

* OddFriendship: As lampshaded by the picture's quote.
* OldRetainer: Hoke.Hoke and previously Idella.


Added DiffLines:

* TastesLikeFriendship: Inverted. Hoke feeding Daisy the Thanksgiving pie closed the play, signifying their long-lasting friendship.
* TimeSkip: As the play and film took place over a couple decades, this happened quite often.

** Boolie states he can't attend Martin Luther King's speech because his racist fellow businessmen would start dealing with New York Jews instead of a Georgia Jew like him.
