* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The encounter with the Bear Man. Both Rooster and Mattie are... er, a tad confused.
** The encounter ''is'' mentioned later on in the book, though. The 2010 film version has a throwaway line from Rooster after [=LaBoeuf=] nearly bites his tongue off about how "that doctor's probably miles away now."

** Everything from the moment Mattie falls into the snake pit, at least in the 2010 film version, just piles a lot of unnecessary suffering on the main characters without contributing anything to the plot, which is effectively over by that point - the bad guys are dead, Mattie's father is avenged, and the protagonists have finally gotten over their collective issues. It turns a largely unambiguous happy ending into something very, ''very'' bittersweet at best for no good reason other than to make the work DarkerAndEdgier.

* NeverTrustATrailer: The trailers for the 2010 film gave it a gritty, bleak feel that felt right at home on the heels of ''{{No Country For Old Men}}''. But surprisingly, the Coens filmed a pretty straightforward Western true to the source material, elevated by the acting, the reliably superb Roger Deakins cinematography, and the signature Coens humor. The PG-13 film was probably a lot lighter than some would have expected from the Coen brothers, although the film does have its share of dramatic moments.



* PapaWolf: Rooster and [=LaBoeuf=] both become this for Mattie to a certain extent.

* ConsolationAward: Some saw Creator/JohnWayne's Oscar win as compensation for not giving it to him sooner.

* ConsolationAward: Some saw ConsolationAward: Creator/JohnWayne's Best Actor win is seen as a consolation for him not winning the award for his work in films like ''Film/RedRiver'', ''Film/TheQuietMan'', ''Film/TheSearchers'', and ''Film/SandsOfIwoJima'' (though Wayne was at least nominated for the latter). To this day, majority of people strongly feel that Creator/DustinHoffman should have one his much deserved Best Actor Oscar win as compensation for not giving it to him sooner.his gritty, heartbreaking performance in ''Film/MidnightCowboy''.

** And one of those nominations was Creator/HallieSteinfeld for Best ''Supporting'' Actress, despite her clearly playing the main protagonist. Considering that she would've been going up against Creator/NataliePortman for ''Film/BlackSwan'' (a guaranteed win) it was probably assumed that she would have had a better chance at winning in the Supporting category.

** It's been pointed out too. There's one picture on the internet comparing 1969 Mattie to Justin Bieber. Looking at the picture, they could've been twins.
*** Of course, this isn't the first time Justin Bieber's appearance has been compared to a girl's.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: At one point; [[Music/{{Carpenters}} Karen Carpenter]] was considered for the role of Mattie in the 1969 version before Kim Darby was cast in that role.
