** First, the naming of the essay, "Self-contained ''Underwater Breathing'' Apparatus". [[spoiler:Guess how Leslie dies]].
** The next is the final lines of the essay. "I check my air. [[spoiler:I don't have as much time as I need to see everything, but that is what makes it so special.]]"
** And finally, Jesse asks Leslie if she encountered any sharks when he assumes her scuba diving was for real... [[Film/SoulSurfer Well, maybe not in this film]].

* OneTruePairing: There's one kind of ''Terabithia'' fan, and that's the kind that ships Jess/Leslie.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Jess's father's annoyance at him could just be a WellDoneSonGuy thing. Or alternately he clearly cherishes little May Belle - and shows her the most affection throughout the film. Perhaps he's annoyed at Jess excluding his little sister so much?


Added DiffLines:

** Leslie's imagination in creating the fantasy world is a little amusing if one watches [=AnnaSophia=] Robb in ''Film/RaceToWitchMountain'' where she's again imaginative - and actually ''does'' have magic powers. What's more is that her brother in that film is played by Alexander Ludwig, who plays Josh Hutcherson's ArchEnemy in ''Film/TheHungerGames''.
** May Belle being crowned the Princess of Terabithia if you've seen Bailee Madison in ''Series/OnceUponATime'' where she plays a fairy tale princess for real: the young Snow White of all people.

* {{Glurge}}: WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic criticised the film for this, claiming that a lot of the sentiment was forced and that Leslie was treated as an unrealistic PuritySue [[spoiler: purely to make the audience feel bad about her death]]. However he did feel that the scenes dealing with [[spoiler: Leslie's death]] were handled quite well.

* {{Narm}}: In the 80's film version, the sadness is ruined by the awful acting on Jesse's actor's part. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv-F7a7jgSE The "You lie!" line is particularly laughable.]]

** The book was written in the 1970s and as such the 2007 film has a lot of slang that's a little outdated. It's usually the taunts coming from the bullies.
* NarmCharm: The "free the pee" scene is silly but also amusing too.



* TastesLikeDiabetes: A few of the more overly sentimental scenes, such as the dancing while Leslie's family are painting the wall. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic likened them to a bubblegum commercial.



* ValuesDissonance: In the book, Jess's ''mother'' is worried about his best friend being female. Because ''it means he might be gay''.
** The film on the other hand, Jess seems to get odd looks from his family when they meet Leslie; however, it seems to be that they're surprised he might have a girlfriend.

** Jess's teacher calls him up to spend the day with her when her nephew cancels. Probably fine in the 70s but would raise a couple of eyebrows with the alarm over the PedoHunt today. Especially since the implication is that the teacher calls Jess personally rather than asking his parents for permission.

* [[spoiler: HesJustHiding: Most Fanfics for Bridge to Terabithia fall into two categories: "What If Leslie didn't die?", and "Leslie didn't die, period". This is actually done In-Universe as well, with Jesse believing that her death is all lies, believing he saw her over at her house when they went to pay their respects, and finally mistaking May-Belle's voice for Leslie's.]]

** Probably not intentional, but there's also something rather...[[CreepyChild unnerving]] about just how dedicated Leslie is to the whole Terabithia thing. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review made fun of this in a skit where a twenty-something Leslie is shown to have a man tied up in her basement to play Terabithia with.

* EarWorm: From the film, Anna Sophia Robb's "Keep Your Mind Wide Open", a sweet little song that reads as an anthem for {{Cloudcuckoolander}}s everywhere.
