These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Recently spawned a string of indie T-shirts in the UK, bearing slogans such as 'Sloth love Chunk' and 'Do the Truffle Shuffle!'
And on YTMND, there are various sites based around Chunk, like "Chunk is Indestructable", where Captain Picard from Star Trek: First Contact tries to shoot down Chunk, and "Chunk Addresses Congress", where Chunk chastises the US Congress over the War in Iraq.
Visual Effects of Awesome: Despite the one noticeable greenscreen, mentioned above, almost everything else: the stunts, set pieces and fantastic sets (especially the location of Willie's ship) were all done practically and have aged fantastically well as a result. A fact proudly pointed out in the Special Edition commentary.
People are more likely to assume "Hey you guys!" is from this movie rather than The Electric Company.
It's very common for people to think that the film is directed by Steven Speilberg. He has only producer and story credits.
What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: The film is generally remembered as a kids film, what with it centering on the adventures of a bunch of kids. However, the film features a man hanging from a noose, a child stuck in a closet with a corpse, a deformed man chained up in a basement, panty shots of a teenager, jokes about drugs and a whole scene dedicated to a statue's penis. When the Special Edition was released celebrating it's 25th Anniversary with a PG-13(12A) rating some were surprised, until they viewed the film through adult eyes.
The Woobie: Poor Sloth. Even when we and Chunk still assume he's a dangerous Madman in the Attic, it's impossible not to feel bad for him as he sits chained to his seat, begging for food from his Jerkass brother.
Speaking of which, Jake Fratelli is a Jerkass Woobie. He's an ass towards Sloth, not to mention a killer, though it's hard to not feel sorry for him as the The Unfavourite in the Fratelli family.
