* FanDisservice: When North visits the Ho family in Hawaii, their bid to increase tourism to the island involves plastering every highway with a billboard of his likeness and a dog pulling down his underwear, reminiscent of the early "Coppertone Girl" ads from the '50s and '60s. North freaks out when he finds out about this.

* HoodHornament: North's first stop when looking for a new set of parents is Texas, where his prospective parents pick him up in the airport driving an airport cart with horns, followed by a AbsurdlyLongLimousine with horns on the front.

* RewatchBonus: The point where [[spoiler it switches to the dream]] is obvious on a second viewing, but the first time through it just seems like an unusually abrupt scene change.

* AmbulanceChaser: Arthur Belt (played by Jon Lovitz), who is literally seen chasing an ambulance until he comes across North. Apparently, he just uses it to beat the traffic.

* ANaziByAnyOtherName: Winchell, who's proclamations of children freeing themselves from their parents' control as North has done are eerily Third Reich-esque.

An 11-year-old boy named North (Creator/ElijahWood) tires of his parents (Creator/JasonAlexander and [[Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus Julia Louis Dreyfus]]), [[ParentalNeglect who never pay any attention to him]] even though he's a model student, athlete, and even actor. He legally emancipates himself from them, and [[WalkingTheEarth wanders around the world seeking a new family]] with a deadline of Labor Day; if he doesn't find a new family by then, he will be placed in an orphanage. Along the way, he encounters parents that are [[CaptainEthnic Texan, Alaskan, Hawaiian, Amish, etc]], and tries to blend in with each group of parents (well, not the Amish). He finally decides that his own parents are the best with the help of a guardian angel (Creator/BruceWillis) who uses [[PaperThinDisguise several guises throughout the film]]. However a conniving kid friend of his, Winchell, used the publicity North's escapades garnered to rally kids everywhere to make their parents more subservient to them. Knowing that North reconciling with his parents would undermine this, he plots to have him killed.
