Added DiffLines:

* RetroactiveRecognition: Creator/SeanAstin and Creator/JoshBrolin are one thing, but the two Fratelli boys that aren't [[EnsembleDarkhorse Sloth,]] Creator/JoePantoliano and Robert Davi, are significantly bigger names now.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: The film is generally remembered as a kids film, what with it centering on the adventures of a bunch of kids. However, the film features a man hanging from a noose, a child stuck in a closet with a corpse, a deformed man chained up in a basement, panty shots of a teenager, jokes about drugs, a whole scene dedicated to a statue's penis and several scenes of adolescents swearing. When the SpecialEdition was released celebrating its 25th Anniversary with a PG-13(12A) rating some were surprised, until they viewed the film [[ParentalBonus through adult eyes]].

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Chunk's lie about Music/MichaelJackson supposedly stopping over at his house to use the bathroom becomes wince-worthy in light of his accusations of pedophilia.

* {{Narm}}: The kids occasionally act more like three year olds than tweens, especially their insistence on calling the treasure "rich stuff."

Added DiffLines:

** Mikey's speech about how the quest and the danger they're marching into is necessary because is all about saving their homes and staying together so they can't give up before it's finished is a bit Narmy in the film, but seeing as that's the future [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Samwise Gangee]]? It can be a bit hard not to picture The Shire instead of the Goon Docks.

* DirectorDisplacement: It's very common for people to think that the film is directed by Steven Spielberg. He has only producer and story credits.

** The joke about MartinSheen being a president (despite having played Kennedy in a mini series) is funnier after he played President Bartlet in TheWestWing.
