* BigLippedAligatorMoment: The "Alas for You" scene comes out of left field, with the Pharisees depicted as some strange metallic monstrosity made of various junk that speaks in a VoiceOfTheLegion. It comes apart and gets taken down as the song finishes, and the incident is not referenced again as the segment goes immediately into "By My Side."

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The fact that the same actor (traditionally) plays John the Baptist and Judas opens up whole volumes of speculation, even if the production plays it as one actor playing two distinct characters (John's holy mission was to prepare the path for the beginning of Christ's ministry, then was it Judas' holy mission to close Christ's ministry on Earth?) If they're the same character, than you can have a Judas who began the movement but is frightened of what it has become, or a heartbroken John, his most loyal disciple, following Jesus' orders no matter what the cost.

* TearJerker: As with the play, the film ends the morning after the crucifixion of Christ as his disciples (some crying) carry him away, leading into a reprise of "Day By Day". They round a corner of a building, and the camera then rounds it as well—and other people of New York City are walking past, a huge crowd of them, as the song continues in voiceover (we hadn't seen anyone but Jesus and his disciples in the city since the long prologue); the last shot is a freeze-frame of ordinary people going about ordinary lives. After the intensity of the crucifixion sequence, this ending can be a punch to the gut.

* OlderThanTheyThink: Many of the lyrics that aren't from Literature/TheBible are from old hymns and prayerbooks.
