* Poor Katherine and Sam.
** "It's so hot, Sam, but I feel so cold..."
** "I can fix that."
** The film version of [[spoiler:Kate's death]]. In the book, [[spoiler:the lizard just jumps out, bites her and leaves]]. In the film, she [[spoiler:picks up the lizard and puts it to her arm, [[DrivenToSuicide prompting it to bite her]]]]. [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds Can you really blame her?]]
* There's also a happy one at the end when [[spoiler: it finally rains at Camp Green Lake and everyone (except the villains) celebrates]].
* Only six months before the film's release, Scott Plank (Trout's actor) died from injuries sustained in a car accident. It's sad watching this film knowing that it was his final role.
