YMMV / Fly Away Home

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: This entire suite. Listen. To. It. Mark Isham, ladies and gentlemen.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The airforce's response to Amy and Thomas and their geese appearing on the radar would probably be considerably less pleasant post-911.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Nine years after this film, Jeff Daniels and Anna Paquin appeared together again in The Squid and the Whale, where he was a professor and she was a student whom he has an affair with. Yeah...
    • When asked about it in interviews, Daniels said, "We tried not to think about...you know, geese".
    • Also, in the movie, Daniels' character builds an exact replica of the lunar module that went on the Apollo 11 mission. Nearly two decades later, Daniels played the head of NASA.
  • Moe: Amy is quite adorable for a teenager.
  • Narm: Amy's dad running out in his bright-red undies to yell at the construction workers.
    • That was probably meant to be partly funny though...
  • Nightmare fuel: For a pet owner, things like seeing some stranger getting too close to your pet baby with something sharp (even if it's just a nail clipper) or accidentally harming your pet seriously (like when Igor is hit by Amy's plane) is this.
  • Squee!: The geese are a joy to watch, especially as chicks that one cannot help Squee-ing.
