* BaseBreaker: Nipsey Russell's talk-singing made some viewers deem him an inappropriate choice for portraying the Tin Man (especially since he seems like the only one of Dorothy's friends to get two songs all to himself), while others try to defend him by arguing that the talk-singing further highlights the tragedy of the Tin Man's inability to feel.

* HarsherInHindsight: Dorothy's goodbye to her friends at the end as they fade to black is all the sadder when you realize that Diana Ross has outlived each one of her main co-stars from the movie.
** Even sadder is the Scarecrow's last line to Dorothy considering what would happen to the [[Music/{{Michael Jackson}} actor who played him]].
---> '''Scarecrow:''' Success, fame, and fortune, they're all illusions. All there is that is real is the friendship that two can share.

* PainfulRhyme: "Soon As I Get Home" has a failed attempt to rhyme "air" and "fear". Neither Stephanie Mills nor Shanice Williams even tried to force the words to sound similar, and Diana Ross just skipped this part of the song.
