YMMV: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
- Anvilicious: Obviously, interethnic marriage.
- Considering the film was made only six months after the US Supreme Court struck down laws against interracial marriage, it's also Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: John mentions that Joey believes that all their children, presumably even their daughters, will be president one day. Forty-four years later, there's a part-African president, and many believe that a woman will absolutely be elected soon after his terms are over.
- Harsher in Hindsight: During Tracy's monologue at the end, he mentions that the love he feels for his wife "will be there if I live to be 110!" He died weeks after the movie was finished.
- Tear Jerker: Tracy's closing monologue of the film, the actor's last performance.
- Katharine Hepburn never watched this movie because she couldn't stand to see Tracy's last work.
- Values Dissonance: Perhaps it's a measure of the progress made when you have this contrast in the audience reaction with a large portion of the population in 1967: "She's marrying a Negro; that's crazy!" to now: "She's marrying a man she only met 10 days earlier; that's crazy!"
- The wide age and life experience gap between John and Joanna can also play a larger part in modern audience reaction.
