* ItWasHisSled: [[spoiler: Leslie dies]]. Spoilered because it's not as well known as, say [[LukeIAmYourFather Darth Vader]] [[Franchise/StarWars being]] [[MemeticMutation Luke's father]], but since it is one of the most discussed things about the story, it's hard to avoid hearing about it whenever the book or movie is brought up.

** 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.]]

** 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.

* 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?

** 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.

** 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.
