* MayDecemberRomance: The film has been accused of this because of the fact Arthur, when not miniaturized, is only about 11 or 12, yet carries on a romance with the considerably more mature Selenia -- who was voiced by {{Madonna}} of all people in the original film. For the sequels, the more age-appropriate SelenaGomez performed the voice. As for the facts of the case, the film establishes that Selenia and Arthur are actually close to the same age (Minimoys, presumably, er, mature "faster").
