Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The open affection among the young men can seem jarring to a 21st century audience, with the modern paranoia and modern distrust of even casual physical contact. This is [[WordOfGod intentionally exploited]] in the film.

* HoYay: At the end of the movie, one protagonist gets together with the other protagonist's [[SatelliteLoveInterest barely-there sister]].

* HoYay: Sometimes seems to be the raison d'etre of the film to a modern audience; a lot of this is the result of ValuesDissonance, but a lot of it is also [[WordOfGod clearly intentional]].

* BaseBreaker: The stage adaptation. Plenty of fans of the original movie can and will admit that they consider the stage adaptation to be good, and even better than the source material. Some fans like both equally. But there's a group of fans of the original movie who will get pretty vicious over the stage musical and the amount of love it gets, plenty of them complaining about how nobody likes the movie anymore. There's also an equally vicious section of the musical fans who consider the movie vastly inferior and deride its fans.
** Sarah and Katherine. Better off to just not talk about them. Sarah is still considered TheScrappy by most of the fandom.

* VindicatedByHistory: Once a punching bag for critics, as time went on it became one of the biggest {{cult classic}}s of TheNineties that even warranted a Tony-winning ScreenToStageAdaptation.

** Can we also take a moment to mention David in that last scene? When he's down to just his undershirt... ''mmm''......

Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableTargets: When trying to figure out which headlines would help them sell more papers, one newsie suggests a crooked politician. He gets shouted down because "that ain't news no more!"


Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: During the nuns scene in "Carrying the Banner", a woman walks through the crowd of newsies, looking for her missing son. She is never seen again and, according to the audio commentary of the film, serves no purpose other than to show how common it was for children to run away from home during those days.

* UnfortunateImplications: To say that Weasel is a bit of a Jewish stereotype is putting it mildly.

Added DiffLines:

** To be fair, the girls have their fair share of fans. And the stage musical added two female newsies (Smalls in the Broadway production and Sniper in the tour), who've become more popular than some of the boys with similarly sized roles.


Added DiffLines:

** In the stage musical, Jack and Crutchie open the show singing about how they're going to run away together, sleep together on the roof of the lodging house, and Jack's reaction to Crutchie being taken to the Refuge is [[HeroicBSOD pretty intense.]]
