* AdaptationDisplacement: Not a lot of people know the novella the movie is based on. Even more unfortunately, though popular, it had largely faded from public awareness by the time [[TheShawshankRedemption another movie]] from the same book, ''Different Seasons'' (a collection of four novellas) had debuted.

** At the end of the film it is said that Chris dies trying to stop a fight, while the others went on with their lives. Phoenix actually did end up dying from an overdose in 1993, while the other actors are still pursuing their careers.



** During the campfire scene, Gordie says "Wagon Train is a cool show and all, but they never get anywhere. They just keep...[[ShapedLikeItself wagon-training]]." The next year Creator/WilWheaton would, of course, become a cast member on Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration . Franchise/StarTrek was described (and pitched) by Creator/GeneRoddenberry as "WagonTrainToTheStars."

Added DiffLines:

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The film was massively popular in Japan, to the point where special versions of the movie were sold intended to teach English. (So, no, the reference to this movie in ''VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue'' wasn't a {{Woolseyism}}.)

* TheWoobie: Gordie, who by the end of the film has lost the only two people who ever really cared about him, and Chris, who works incredibly hard to make something of himself only to be cut down for a stupid reason by a thug.

Added DiffLines:

** In the book, Gordie mentions a trip to NYC in the late 1970s/early 1980s. He mentions touring the Empire State Building, and says "Fuck the World Trade Center, the building King Kong climbed will always be the tallest to me." Fast forward a couple of decades...
