* HarsherInHindsight: ** Although [[spoiler: Gilderoy Lockhart's memory being wiped]] is sort of PlayedForLaughs, it becomes horrifying when we see him again in [[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheOrderOfThePhoenix book 5]] in the [[spoiler: Spell Damage Ward at St. Mungo's.]] Also interesting, considering that [[spoiler: the memory charms that Gilderoy Lockhart put on the people who actually did the deeds he claims he did]] are decidedly ''not'' played for laughs.

** Snape looked "as if Christmas had been cancelled" when he finds out that Harry and Ron won't be expelled for flying the Ford Anglia to Hogwarts. He would later be portrayed by Creator/AlanRickman in the films, who himself called off Christmas as the Sheriff of Nottingham in ''Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves''.

* GeniusBonus: The bronze statue of a boar that has a prominent place in the Hogwarts entrance hall is a copy of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porcellino Il Porcellino]], a famous statue in Florence, said to have magical powers. The original Il Porcellino figures in one of [[HansChristianAndersen Hans Christian Andersen's]] lesser known fairy tales, ''The Metal Hog'', in which it comes to life and tells a poor street urchin that he is destined to become an artist - not unlike what happens to Harry Potter.

* ItsTheSameNowItSucks: Sadly film critics other than RogerEbert talk down to this film for taking a slow paced, AdaptationDistillation approach like the first film. After the third film came out and the tone of the film series changed profoundly, only purists mention this one. The book is also given very similar treatment.

*** McGonagall actually points this out later, asking them why they didn't just write to her or Dumbledore and explain the problem. Harry privately realizes that that was an obvious solution that he didn't even think of.
