* There's a scene in ''Disney/TheRescuersDownUnder'' that has some domestic abuse played for laughs. A very large wife and a very small husband are eating dinner at a restaurant. The engagement ring Bernard was intending to give to Bianca rolls under their table, and Bernard, getting it, brushes up against the wife's leg. Assuming her husband is trying to play footsie (she never sees Bernard), she rather brutally smacks him, whereupon he cringes away from her in fear.

* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'': '''Averted'''. Mrs. Tweedy's treatment of her husband, while still comical, is clearly treated as terrible, dismissing and insulting him, and literally kicking his butt. Ginger does bitch-slap Rocky for deserting her and the other chickens at the end. Whether or not he deserved it is up to the viewer to decide.
* ''Disney/MeetTheRobinsons'': Aunt Petunia is introduced smacking around [[HenpeckedHusband her husband Fritz around]] in a cartoonish way. Of corse, it's worth mentioning that Petunia is [[CompanionCube a hand puppet that Fritz controls]], meaning he's clearly [[CloudCuckoolander off his rocker]].
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Rio 2}}'': Jewel's more or less emotionally abusing her husband Blu for the entire film, making all of his decisions for him, allowing her stern father to berate him and showing a blatant disregard for his difficulty transitioning to jungle life. But because Blu is supposed to be a [[NervousWreck sheltered worry-wart]], all of his opinions are treated as hilarious inept. If the genders were flipped, there'd be an uproar.
* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': Rapunzel's unnecessary and played-for-laughs physical violence against Flynn when they first meet. It's justified that she initially knocks him unconscious (twice), since he is an intruder. But then once he is unconscious, instead of physically restraining him by tying him up, she goes to put his unconscious body in her closet, which takes several attempts during which he endures a lot of physical abuse (all played for laughs). Then she ties him up to a chair (which she could have done to begin with, making the closet scene and abuse unnecessary). She knocks him unconscious for a ''third'' time while he is tied down (again unnecessary and he was physically restrained this time). When she accidentally lets the chair he is tied up to fall down so he falls on his face on the floor, she doesn't say "Sorry" but a dismissive "Oops". Later, when Flynn tries to argue with her to abandon their mission, instead of reasoning with him she answers with "''I will use this''" holding up the pan that she had knocked him unconscious with three times, menacingly to his face (imagine if it was a man that says to a woman "I will knock you out" to make her do his will during a dispute).
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': Played with--Sgt. Calhoun [[GetAHoldOfYourselfMan slaps Felix to stop him from freaking]] out when the two are stuck in [[QuicksandSucks NesquikSand]], causing the sentient vines of Laffy Taffy to giggle and slowly make their way down towards them. Despite her reluctance to do so, Felix, who can instantly heal himself with his magic hammer, demands Calhoun [[AmusingInjuries continue injuring him]] until the vines are close enough for them to pull themselves out. Out of context, it's easy to imagine a gender-swapped version being rejected en mass, but the context in which all of this happens is so... [[ItMakesSenseInContext let's just say "specific"]] that it'd take a lot of second-thinking to come off as this.

* ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'': Played straight in a brief scene near the end when Ginger angrily slaps Rocky. Otherwise, '''averted'''. Mrs. Tweedy's treatment of her husband, while still comical, is clearly treated as terrible, dismissing and insulting him, and literally kicking his butt.

* Black-comedy film ''Film/RoughNight'' revolves around a bachelorette party accidentally killing their male stripper. The trailer then shows said stripper's corpse being treated in an undignified manner, all the while in his underwear with novelty glasses on. All of these moments are intended to be seen as hilarious. There's even a scene where a man shrugs it off as just ''"an accident"''.

The fact that the trailer was released on International Women's Day was also viewed with criticism.

* Averted in both the film and the novel of ''Film/TheDeadZone''. Frank Dodd's lifelong abuse at the hands of his mother is portrayed as horrific, and [[MommyIssues as the main if not the only reason he has become evil]].



* Averted in ''Film/TheBestExoticMarigoldHotel''. Jean is portrayed as a domineering {{Jerkass}} toward her husband Douglas, and it's generally ''not'' PlayedForLaughs.
