** Carl would go on to voice {{Disney/Tarzan}}, Oda Mae would go on to voice [[Disney/TheLionKing Shenzi]], and Molly would go on to voice [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Esmeralda]]. Somewhat inverted for Sam, who went on to voice [[WesternAnimation/TheFoxAndTheHound2 Cash]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Narm}}: When Carl tells Molly "you're not the one who died", she gives him an incredibly weak slap.

** The scenes with the dark figures... the green-screen technique has not aged well. [[TropesAreTools Although]], one could argue that it makes the figures seem even creepier and unearthly.

* HarsherInHindsight: At one point, Vincent Schiavelli, as the Subway Ghost, says he longs for the ability to have just one more cigarette. In real life, Vincent Schiavelli eventually died from lung cancer.
** ''Ghost'' was DuelingWorks with ''Film/TrulyMadlyDeeply'' as romantic films with ghostly partners. The romantic leads from the two films, Creator/PatrickSwayze and Creator/AlanRickman, would both die from pancreatic cancer.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** The scene with Oda Mae and the nuns becomes a lot funnier if you have ''Film/SisterAct'' in your head.
** [[Series/DoctorWho That nightmare with the angel statue moving...]]
** Creator/BruceWillis was offered the role of Sam, but turned it down because he felt that playing a ghost could be cheesy. In 1999, he would play a ghost in ''Film/TheSixthSense''.
** The Subway Ghost screaming [[WebAnimation/ASDFMovie "Like TRAINS?!"]] at Sam.



* SpiritualAdaptation: According to the Website/{{Cracked}} [[http://www.cracked.com/article_24343_6-famous-films-that-are-secret-remakes-kids-movies.html article]], ''Ghost'' is a blatant rip-off of Creator/DonBluth's 1989 film ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven''... by one year!

* SugarWiki/{{Heartwarming Moment|s}}: Sam and Oda Mae's relationship evolving from mutual annoyance to mutual fondness and respect:very
** When Willie shows up at Oda Mae's place, Sam yells at her, "Get out of here, ''fast''!", then puts himself between the two of them, even though he can't offer any protection.
** Later, when he realizes that Carl and Willie are going after her, he panics and hauls ass to her place to warn her.
** Their final exchange as she can now see him for the first time and upon seeing heaven itself utters:
--> '''Oda Mae''': "Sam. They're waiting for you, Sam."
--> '''Sam''': "I'll miss you. Your mother would be proud."
--> '''Oda Mae''': "I'm gonna miss you too, Sam. You're all right."

Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: Once 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--Carl must have told him.
** 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.

Later, when he realizes that Carl and Willie are going after her, he panics and hauls ass to her place to warn her. It's sweet, considering how much she annoyed him, that his first thought was to protect her.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Subway Ghost, no small part due to Vincent Schiavelli's performance, acting as Sam's mentor on how to move solid objects and his pitiful side to himself when the circumstances of how he died comes to light.
