* ScienceMarchesOn: At the time the film was made, prevailing wisdom held that detonating nukes inside a comet or asteroid would cause it to break up into multiple disastrous bodies, while detonating them on its surface would convey enough thrust to deflect it.

* HilariousInHindsight: Morgan Freeman gives a Presidential speech about the comet with graphics of the solar system, complete with an analogy between colliding comets and balls bouncing against one another on a pool table. It's ''exactly'' like his later role as host of ''Through The Wormhole''. Later on, he also says he believes in God and that he believes God answers every prayer, even if the answer is sometimes "no"- since it's Morgan Freeman, [[Film/BruceAlmighty he should know.]]
** When [[Creator/ElijahWood Leo]] proposes to Sarah, he holds out his and and reveals two [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings gold rings]].

* AwesomeMusic: While the melodrama in the film itself isn't everyone's cup of tea, James Horner's beautifully bittersweet score may have you reaching for the tissues, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPi0vTf75gU "Drawing Straws"]] and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEo1qDeSSdk "Goodbye and Godspeed"]] being good examples.
