YMMV / The Money Pit

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: At the end of the film, Walter and Anna do get married; Max, played by Alexander Godunov, conducts the orchestra at the ceremony - the piece that's heard is Beethoven's Ode to Joy. The same piece that would be featured very prominently in Die Hard a couple of years later, where Godunov would play The Dragon.
  • Memetic Mutation: Tom Hanks' physically sarcastic donkey bray of a laugh when the bathtub fall through the floor. It was famously used as a stock sound effect on Universal tours for several years.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Karl is Max the Maestro.
