** Creator/TonyGoldwyn (Carl) would go on to voice {{WesternAnimation/Tarzan}}, Creator/WhoopiGoldberg (Oda Mae) would go on to voice [[WesternAnimation/TheLionKing1994 Shenzi]], and Creator/DemiMoore (Molly) would go on to voice [[WesternAnimation/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Esmeralda]]. Somewhat inverted for Creator/PatrickSwayze (Sam), who went on to voice [[WesternAnimation/TheFoxAndTheHound2 Cash]].

* HilariousInHindsight:
** Before they went to Disney, [[WesternAnimation/{{Tarzan}} Tarzan]] hunted [[WesternAnimation/TheHunchbackofNotreDame Esmerelda]] and [[Franchise/TheLionKing Shenzi]].
** "Get off my train" sounds very much like [[Film/AirForceOne "Get off my plane"]] or [[Film/GranTorino "Get off my lawn"]]...


* HarsherInHindsight: It's hard to think about this film without the fact that Patrick Swayze actually died 19 years after it was released.


* WTHCastingAgency: More like WTH, Director of Choicem but one of the directors of ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' directing a gut-wrenchingly emotional romantic murder drama? Surely, you can't be serious?
** Bruce Joel Rubin, the screenwriter, says he was horrified when he first found out who was set to direct, but he went on to be highly satisfied with Zucker and pleased with how the movie turned out.

* RewatchBonus: Once [[spoiler:Carl]] is revealed as the mastermind behind everything, a few scenes get this:
** His concern when he notices Sam investigating the phone accounts and the way he insists that he take over.
** Willie knowing precisely where to attack Sam and Molly--[[spoiler:Carl]] must have told him.
** [[spoiler:Carl]] encouraging Molly to join him for a walk--to give Willie the chance to break in and steal the information.
** His incredulous reaction when Molly tells him all the things Oda Mae told her initially seems to be because he thinks she's a scam artist. We soon realize that he's terrified that Willie's been blabbing to people.

Added DiffLines:

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Creator/BruceWillis turned down the male lead because he thought the film would flop. He freely admitted that wasn't the smartest move of his career. His then-wife Creator/DemiMoore had no such fears.


* AlasPoorVillain: Despite all they've done to Sam and Molly, it's easy to feel bad for Willy and [[spoiler:Carl]] when they meet their final fates.

Added DiffLines:

* OneSceneWonder: Technically two scenes, but the [[Creator/VincentSchiavelli subway ghost]].


* OscarBait: Pulled it off; it earned a Best Picture nomination and took the home the Oscars for Best Supporting Actress and Best Original Screenplay, even though actual critical reception was mixed.
