* AwardSnub: One in particular. "Save Me" losing the Oscar for Best Song to Phil Collins.
** Many cite this film as having the performance of Tom Cruise's career, and would say that he deserved the Oscar over Michael Caine for ''Film/TheCiderHouseRules''.
* BillingDisplacement: Where's Alfred Molina? Oh, there he is. In one scene early on in the film. Despite of this, he is even credited above Melora Walters.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome / {{Narm}}: [[CrowdSong "Wise Up"]]

* TheWoobie/ JerkassWoobie: Every character except for [[JerkAss Rick Spector]] qualifies as either one of these two tropes, even [[spoiler: Jimmy Gator, the man who quite possibly molested his daughter]] evokes sympathy because of how sad and pitiful he is.

* FridgeHorror: The suggestion that [[spoiler:Jimmy Gator molested his daughter]] is horrifying. It's even more horrifying when you remember [[spoiler:his job involves working directly with children.]]

* TheWoobie: Numerous ones, though Stanley Spector, and Donnie Smith are the most notable ones. Phil Parma and Jim Kurring both have their moments of this as well.
** JerkassWoobie: Claudia Gator, Linda Partridge, and arguably even Frank T.J. Mackey and Jimmy Gator as well.
