* SpitTake: The movie apparently adores this trope. Several moments in the movie people are spitting stuff out, from chocolate chip cookies to lava rocks, although most are to show off the [[ThreeDMovie 3-D effects]].

* StylisticSuck: Arguably, ''the entire movie'' is written to resemble the kind of story a child would come up with, including [[PlotHole Plot Holes]], [[{{Anvilicious}} unsubtle and]] [[BrokenAesop oblivious morals]], [[{{Narm}} unearned melodrama]] and blatant [[RuleOfCool Rule Of Things A Preteen Would Consider Cool.]] Not everyone agrees that that excuses it, but to some people, that's [[SoBadItsGood its]] [[NarmCharm charm.]]

* FailedASpotCheck: Early in the film, Max's parents refuse to believe his claims that Sharkboy and Lavagirl ate the cookies his Mom made, instead choosing to blame him. They completely ignore the fact that one has a giant bite taken out of it that's consistent with shark teeth and another is singed. Granted, it's still a pretty big leap from there to "our son's imaginary friends are real and were just in here eating our cookies", but it should have at least been obvious that Max couldn't have done it.

* AnAesop: The movie sets up for a "you need to solve your problems in the real world" aesop (i.e., the protagonist has a problem, goes to a fantasy world, learns how to fix their problem, goes back to the real world and applies their newly learned lessons without the aid of their fantasy friends). The real aesop, however, can be found under "Stock Aesops".

* PaddleballShot: The film is guilty of doing this several times, some of which were achieved via cheap {{Jump Scare}}s, and a particularly memorable example during the brain storm where Linus takes a brain and throws it onto the camera, causing it to slowly slide down, leaving a trail of...''[[{{Squick}} something]]''.

* {{Trickster}}: The Ice Princess' test for Max (and the fact that she doesn't tell him that only ''she'' can use the crystal heart before she gives it to him) reveals her as one.
** Though that just implied however.

* EvilIsHammy: Minus is up there with Komodo from ''Film/WarriorsOfVirtue'', but even more fun thanks to being played by a kid. Especially since his acting becomes shockingly horrible after his HeelFaceTurn.
