* CareerResurrection: Ted Danson. Cheers had been off the air for nearly a decade and he's been a in a number of commercial and critical flops since then. His short appearance in this film proved he could do drama every bit as well as comedy and he's worked steadily ever since.

* {{Narm}}: Played with, if that's possible with this trope. The scene with the wrong Private Ryan, played by Nathan Fillion, can come across as accidentally hilarious since [[ItWasHisSled everyone knows]] that Creator/MattDamon is the Ryan they're looking for. So with that foreknowledge the scenes can come across as funny in a CrossesTheLineTwice sort of way. But at the end of the scene, Fillion's Ryan is still worried about his brothers and realises he won't be going back home. His line "I wrote them a letter just yesterday" eliminates any humour the scene may have had.

* AwardSnub: One of the most famous in the history of the Academy. The film lost the Best Picture UsefulNotes/AcademyAward to ''Film/ShakespeareInLove'' due to the Weinsteins heavily lobbying their movie. ''Saving Private Ryan'' is the film people remember more these days.

* JerkassWoobie: Mellish is a dick throughout the film but then you realise he's Jewish, and there's also an early scene where he's handed a Hitler youth knife. He tries to joke about it but bursts into tears. Reiben as well, since he only wants to desert the mission [[spoiler: after being forced to watch two comrades die slowly and painfully]].
