It's a Tear Jerker
from the beginning to the end.
- The dedication card at the end of the movie. Christ.
For Brandon and Eliza.
- From a production standpoint, Brandon Lee's death is an obvious one. However, a special mention has to go to Michael Massee, who played Funboy. He was the one who used the faulty gun prop that killed Lee. He had to deal with Linda Lee Caldwell's grief, he quit acting for a year, and still has nightmares to this day about the incident.
- Eric and Shelly's death scene itself. Eric and Shelly are so in love it's almost sickening. Shelly was just 12 hours away from getting married. Her involvement opposing tenant relocation comes back to bite her in the form of T-Bird's Gang. They trash her house, beat her and rape her, all with the intention of putting enough fear into her to make her leave her home. Then Eric shows up which turns an already bad assault into murder. What makes it especially heartbreaking is they were both murdered at the height of their own personal happiness.
