* 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.]]

* 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.

** For one thing, while we have some CrowningMusicOfAwesome in the musical, with ''Seize the Day'' and ''The World Will Know'', the FinalLoveDuet ''Something to Believe In'' has got to be the worst-written and most generic song of the soundtrack, with such lyrical gems as "We [were] never meant to meet/And then we meet, [[ContrivedCoincidence who knows why]]?" and "I thought I knew what love was/Now I'm learning what is true:/That love will do what it does.".

** Similarly, the stage version of ''Santa Fe'', which is now a duet with Jack and Crutchie, where Jack declares that in a town like Santa Fe, it wouldn't ''matter'' that Crutchie was crippled, folks would just carry him where he needed to go. In fact, the fresh air would probably heal him!
* EarWorm: Itís a Disney musical, after all. ''King Of New York'' is particularly catchy.
** As of the stage musical... ''Something To Believe In'', ''Watch What Happens'', ''Santa Fe'', ''Seize The Day''... As much as the original movie had ear worms, the stage adaptation has even more.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Oy. Okay, rule out every main character. Then every female character. Then everyone over the age of, say twenty-one and under the age of fourteen. That character will have enough {{fangirl}}s to qualify as this.

* HeyItsThatGuy: Is that a young Creator/ChristianBale selling papes?



* NarmCharm: The movie tried to work Disney magic on atypical subject matter. For some, this results in the subject and tone of the film clashing in a very stupid way. For others, the fact that it's so over-the-top just makes it all the more awesome. Also, it has [[spoiler: TheodoreRoosevelt]].
* OneSceneWonder: [[spoiler: The BigDamnHeroes moment courtesy of TheodoreRoosevelt]]. Arguably one of the better scenes.
