Added DiffLines:

* NightmareFuel: The scene with the angel statues looking down on Charlotte in the bell tower are a little unnerving, complete with StaggeringZoom and ScareChord.


Added DiffLines:

* TearJerker:
** Kate almost drowning.
** Charlotte crying and begging her unconscious little sister Kate not to die.
** Rachel's tearful monologue to a sleeping Kate as she recovers in the hospital.
** Everything to do with Charlotte and her DisappearedDad.
-->'''Charlotte''': [[TearJerker One day he'll come back. I just hope he can find us.]]

Added DiffLines:

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: As Mrs. Flax wishes Charlotte well on her date, Mrs. Flax's youngest daughter Kate stumbles through the hallway with a pumpkin on her head, banging into things and eventually falling to the kitchen floor saying that she's a monster shark. It's adorable.


* HilariousInHindsight: At the time of the film's release, Winona Ryder was in a relationship with Creator/JohnnyDepp (which soon ended). A decade later, Christina Ricci, who played Ryder's little sister in the film, [[SheIsAllGrownUp would co-star]] as Depp's love interests in ''[[Film/SleepyHollow1999 Sleepy Hollow]]'' (1999) and ''The Man Who Cried'' (2000).

* RetroactiveRecognition:
** [[Series/StrangerThings Joyce Byers]] has a crush on [[Film/SixteenCandles Jake Ryan]].
** Charlotte's kid sister is [[Film/TheAddamsFamily Wednesday Addams]].
* ValuesDissonance: Given the movie's 1960s setting, not a single eye batted over 15-year-old Charlotte dating [[spoiler: and later losing her virginity]] to 26-year-old Joe, nowadays due to the age of consent in many states ranging from 16-18 years old it's very likely that Joe could be charged with having sex with a minor.


* EarWorm: Cher's cover of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Shoop_Shoop_Song Betty Clarke's "The Shoop Shoop Song (It's in his kiss)]] will stay in people's heads for a long, long time.
