- Ending Fatigue: Once Chuck returns to land, it's at least half an hour left. (not that the trailer didn't reveal basically everything beforehand...)
- Fanon: It's implied that he makes this choice in the ending shot, but a lot of people like to believe that Chuck goes on to live a happy new life with Bettina.
- Memetic Mutation: All together now... WIIILLLLLLSOOOOOONNNNNNN!!!.
- A smaller one is like the Wilson meme, except it has Chuck shout out "I'M SORRY WILSON!" only for the image of Wilson to be replaced by the head of Steven Wilson.
- Narm Charm: Wilson's 'death'. It's both completely stupid and completely heartbreaking.
- Never Live It Down: The film's marketing team will never hear the end of it as the prime example of a movie trailer that showed viewers the entire movie.
- Slow-Paced Beginning: The film takes at least a half hour to setup everything before Chuck winds up stranded on the island.
- Squick: Chuck removing his tooth is not a pleasant sight.
YMMV / Cast Away
