YMMV: Born on the Fourth of July
- Anvilicious: The movie is either this or Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
- Awesome Music: One of John Williams' most moving scores.
- Heartwarming Moment: Kovic being forgiven by Wilson's parents.
- Memetic Mutation: See Narm.
- Narm: In what is otherwise an emotionally powerful and impacting scene, the following exchange occurs:
Mrs. Kovic (agitated): Don't say 'penis' in this house!Ron: Penis! Penis! Big fucking erect penis, Mom! (shouting) PENIS! PENIIIS!!!!!
- Also, the wheelchair fight between him and Charlie.
- Wangst: Kovic himself wasn't portrayed as sympathetically in this film. Instead, he was played out like an emotional adult.
