* AmbiguouslyJewish: the Potters have what might be a mezuzah on their door.

* AmbiguouslyJewish: the Potters have what might be a mezuzah on their door.ActingForTwo: Phil Fondacaro plays both Torok and Malcolm


Added DiffLines:

* Really700YearsOld: Eunice. Notably, she can look younger than she does (and does do so once she goes hunting for Torok) but she chooses to look like an old woman (although significantly younger than the centuries she must be)

* DeadpanSnarker: Eunice



* PetTheDog: Torok does care about the little girl, and so [[spoiler: he kills the demon/gagoyle thing mentioned above]]. He also [[spoiler: turns a person suffering from cancer into an elf]].

Added DiffLines:

* TroublingUnchildlikeBehavior: Turok-as-Wendy will often do and say things that are very bizarre for a young girl to say and do (generally when around Malcolm), but no one aside from Harry Jr. seems to notice

Added DiffLines:

* BookDumb: Duke considers this a mark of pride: he thinks reading books is unmanly


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Harry Potter Sr.'s crack that the "apartment fairies" helped put things away


Added DiffLines:

* JerkAss: Peter Dickinson, who hates kids, is rude to Harry Potter Sr. (admittedly because his first interaction with him is after having been trampled by the latter's children running around the building while the fire alarm is going off) and who thinks he's a lot smoother with the ladies than he actually is. Duke is a lot nicer, except for the fact that [[BookDumb he thinks reading is for pansies and liberals]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Eunice is a bit abrasive at first, but soon warms up to Harry Potter Jr.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: Aside from the presumably coincidental "Harry Potter" thing, Sonny Bono's character is named Peter Dickinson, the name of a fairly prominent fantasy writer

Added DiffLines:

* LittlePeopleAreSurreal: Averted somewhat with Malcolm, who seems like a fairly regular guy for an English professor...he just happens to be about 3 feet tall. All of the other short people in the movie are actual supernatural creatures.

* AllTrollsAreDifferent: Literally; all the trolls produced differ greatly from Torok.
** The only actual troll is Torok. The other creatures he spawns from the tenants are assorted fey folk. Damned UGLY fey folk (excepting Creator/JuliaLouisDreyfus), but fey folk nonetheless.

* RealityWarping: seems to be a side effect of the ring's transformation process although from the transformed perspective it's RealityWarpingIsNotAToy.

The movie focuses on the Potter family. In case you are wondering, yes, there is a Literature/HarryPotter, two in fact (father and son), and this was [[HilariousInHindsight ''way'' before the books]]. Wendy Potter, the obnoxious little girl of the family, is abducted by the troll, who then takes her form and infiltrates into the family. For the rest of the movie, he basically turns the neighbours into plant pods to generate more trolls to take over the world. Why he didn't do that before nobody knows. Anyway, Harry Potter Junior, played by a teenage NoahHathaway, realises his sister was replaced... after watching two sci-fi movies. [[WhatAnIdiot And even so, he thinks she's an alien]]. It takes a meeting with Eunice St. Clair to realise what is really happening, and then he solves everything.
