YMMV / A Bronx Tale

  • Harsher in Hindsight: Lillo Brancato, who plays C, later did fall into a life of crime and spent five years in prison for a burglary that led to the death of a police officer.
    • Brancato revealed in an interview that it was during the film's production that he started doing drugs and, in a case of life imitating art, both Robert De Niro and Chazz Palmintieri tried to persuade him not to.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Lorenzo expresses discomfort at the idea of C hypothetically dating a black woman; 4 years after this film's release, Robert De Niro married a black woman.
  • Memetic Mutation: On the Opie And Anthony Show, Chazz Palmintieri and comedian Rich Vos read a scene from the movie. And to this day, every once in a while on the show you'll hear the "Louie! Beans!" done in Rich's mushmouthed style.
