* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Andrew is seen getting a mechanical operation in his chest area (with his human covering on). Ten years later, Creator/RobinWilliams would undergo open heart surgery.
* HarsherInHindsight: The end of the movie where Andrew willingly gives up his life to be happy ''(fulfilling his dreams of being recognized as human, that is)'' becomes a whole lot darker when you take into account Robin William's own suicide in 2014.
** not to mention [[spoiler: near the end of the film, seeing Robin Williams in aging prosthetics makeup is a bit odd and unerving now since he tragically didn't live that old.]]
* TearJerker: So very many scenes in the movie.
