* MinimalistCast: The play only has three characters seen on stage -- Miss Daisy, Hoke, and Booley. The film obviously subverts this.

* {{Flanderization}}: Not the movie itself, but you can bet that when someone parodies this movie, it will be a ShallowParody with Hoke done in such over-the-top minstrel style that it goes from just bad parody to UnfortunateImplications.

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 Music/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.
