** In the film, Jess coming home and saying "Hi guys" as his CatchPhrase with no one responding [[spoiler:rings more harshly when he says it and his mother frantically grabs him and his parents have to tell him Leslie is dead.]]



* MemeticMolester: Miss Edmonds; see ValuesDissonance for why.

** Also in the book, when Leslie tells Jess that Janice's father is abusive, Jess at first responds that most kids' fathers beat them; Leslie then has to clarify that ''this'' kind of beating is the kind that gets you sent to prison. The reason why Janice was crying was that she was telling her friends, obviously looking for sympathy, and they tell the school. Jesse thinks of how stupid that was because KidsAreCruel. Understandably, in the movie this is changed to Leslie starting by saying that Janice's father hates her, hits her, and got the cops called on him, hence how everyone at school nows.



* WhatAnIdiot: Maybelle, you're a sweetie and all, but if you find a ring of keys lying on the floor of the greenhouse, don't you think you oughtta tell your parents?

* TheWoobie:
** Jesse starts out as one already, though with AgeAppropriateAngst about having four sisters and having to wear hand-me-downs. [[spoiler:The angst quickly gets less age-appropriate.]]
** Leslie's parents [[spoiler:after their daughter dies in a freak accident, right in their backyard. They act gracious at the memorial service, thank Jesse for being such a good friend to her, and apologize for wanting to keep Prince Terrien as a memento. Within a few weeks they move, just after they had finished painting the living room.]]
** Maybelle is another one, given she worships her brother but he sees her as an AnnoyingYoungerSibling. [[spoiler:Fortunately by the end they patch up.]]

* {{Moe}}: Maybelle. Just ... Maybelle. This is even lampshaded by Josh Hutcherson and Creator/AnnaSophiaRobb in their commentary, the former of whom calls her "just the cutest kid ever".

* {{Moe}}: Maybelle. Just ... Maybelle. Maybelle, at least in the second film. This is even lampshaded by Josh Hutcherson and Creator/AnnaSophiaRobb in their commentary, the former of whom calls her "just the cutest kid ever".



* TaintedByThePreview: Those who read the book knew that the story isn't a fantasy adventure, but rather the bonding experiences of two kids in a realistic setting. Seeing the 2007 film adaptation's [[NeverTrustATrailer trailers]], which centered around the fantasy world imagined by the kids but now fully populated by CGI creatures, caused them to believe that the filmmakers completely missed the point of the book and were instead trying to make a ''[[Film/TheChroniclesOfNarnia Chronicles of Narnia]]'' [[ShoddyKnockOffProduct rip-off]] that the marketing strategy seemed to promote. In some cases, this turned them off from seeing the film altogether, even though the film was actually truer to the book than the trailers would lead one to believe.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: [[spoiler:Leslie's death]] comes quite as a shock, even for a hard-boiled adult.

** The director of the 2007 film is the author of the book's son. So that movie is practically a grown-up Jesse remembering his own youth and his best friend back then.

** It ups the NightmareFuel when we find out that the Dark Master symbolizes [[spoiler: Jess' father played by Robert Patrick, while the father himself isn't that bad of a guy, it does stir up some repressed [[{{Terminator}} T-1000]] memories. ]]

** 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]].
