** Plus there's the ceremony which both Mimi-Siku and Michael take, which involves grabbing a smoldering torch with your bare hand.

* MightyWhitey: Played with, but ultimately repudiated. Mimi-Siku ''is'' quite adept at tribal customs, but that is only because he has been explicitly raised as an native, and among native children. At one point the chief assigns him a task in order to "become a man," but due to Michael's refusal to cooperate it at first doesn't look as if Mimi will succeed. Michael himself is noticeably squeamish around the various jungle animals and Mimi's pets - as are other Anglo-American characters when Mimi is brought to New York.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil?: The few people who went to see the movie did so because of the trailer. Especially the part where Martin Short is [[http://youtu.be/7uQm7SOJymg?t=1m14s shown a tarantula bigger than his hand.]] Unfortunately, that was the best part of the movie.

* UnfortunateName: Mimi-Siku, not just because he's a boy, but its apparent meaning makes it all the more unfortunate.

* Mystery Meat: The joke implied about Central Park Hot Dogs when Mimi-Siku tells his city-bound father Michael that the hot dogs he's trying out tastes like his favorite food back in his tribal home, lizard guts. This causes some squeamish reactions from his father who promptly spits out the portion he is chewing on and dumps the rest of the hot dog.

Changed It Tastes Like Chicken Trope to "I ate what"?
* IAteWHAT / TastesLikeChicken: Mimi remarks that a Central Park hot dog tastes like lizard guts when Michael introduces the food to him. The latter trope is in effect for Mimi, who loves eating lizard guts, his favorite food from his tribal home; the former trope applies to Michael who chunks his hot dog in the trash upon hearing Mimi's comparison.
