** Frank as well. Unable to choose between which parent to live with, he ran away from home and turned to a life of crime to support himself, wasn't able to settle down with Brenda, and was left shaken and broken [[spoiler:after learning his father had died in an accident and his mother had re-married and started a new family without Frank's knowledge]]. Poor guy. At least things start looking up for him right at the end.

* NauseaFuel: In-universe and real life, Frank sees the broken leg of a boy (he broke it in a bike accident) in the ER. It's covered in blood and it looks like ''the bone is visible through the break''. Frank is visibly unnerved, and abruptly leaves the ER to vomit in a sink in the janitor's closet.

** It does possibly illustrate Frank feeling at home in a family unit once more after his actual family fractured apart (the next shot is Frank watching Brenda's parents dance in the kitchen, similar to the warmth his own parents showed early on), planting the seeds that he's ready to stop running and settle down to be happy.

* AwardSnub: While the movie was a box office hit and a critical favorite, it didn't rack up a lot of nominations. Partly because it was viewed as a low-key work for Spielberg who by that time was making one epic movie after another. His other 2002 film, ''Film/MinorityReport'', was similarly snubbed despite universal acclaim and box office success.
** Most notably, fans of [[Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio DiCaprio]] will point to this as one of his more joyous performances, and will say that this would have made for a great nomination.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The one scene where Frank's family watches Sing Along with Mitch qualifies as this. Bonus points for the song they used being an EarWorm: "Has anybody here seen Kelly? K-E double L-Y..."

* DracoInLeatherPants: The RealLife Frank Abagnale Jr. felt that the movie did this to him, giving the "character" a more sympathetic backstory. Abagnale [[WordOfGod went on record]] saying he pulled the cons he did, [[WellDoneSonGuy not to impress his father]], [[ItAmusedMe but because he could.]]

* MagnificentBastard: Abagnale were able to con banks and the government for millions, con his way into lucrative jobs and evaded the FBI several times, often under their noses. All before he turned nineteen.
