* FantasticRacism: Apparently a child being good at video games makes him some sort of mutant cyborg freak. On the other hand, most of the people making fun of him are kids, who tend to be cruel to people who don't act normally.

** Putnam. He may be out to recover lost children, but 1) he doesn't handle with care (and acts more like a kidnapper) and 2) he actively tries to impede Sam (the '''father''' of the two boys) from finding them just so he can claim payment.

** Putnam. He may be out to recover lost children, but 1) he doesn't handle with care (and acts more like a kidnapper) and 2) he actively tries to impede Sam (the '''father''' of the two boys) from finding them just so he can claim payment. He also completely disregards Corey, the other runaway child, simply because he is only being paid to retrieve Jimmy. [[TookALevelInKindness He does get better in the end.]]



*** Perhaps even worse than Bateman is Sam's ex-wife, Christine, who shows no concern for Corey's well-being, and does not appear to support Jimmy's new hobby at playing video games (even when ''$50,000'' is at stake), despite Putnam abandoning his job to cheer him on, and even Bateman himself cheering on Jimmy ''right next to Sam!''

%%* PacManFever* PacManFever: Many NES and Play Choice-10 cabinets are littered in the film, and you do actually see the games for the most part, with the appropriate audio and everything, and even the Nintendo support hot-line is involved. This doesn't stop the characters from button-mashing in an exaggerated manner.
