Much of said hilarity comes from Buck's repeated encounters with [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys Tia's boyfriend]], Bug. Buck knows Bug is just using her, and pretends to be AxCrazy for Bug's benefit. Tia decides that ThisMeansWar When not trying to save Tia from herself, Buck [[ItMakesSenseInContext cooks giant pancakes, punches out drunken clowns]] and tries to fix his on-again-off-again relationship with his old flame/employer, [[AerithAndBob Chanice]]. All this builds to a [[{{Heartwarming/Film}} Crowning Moment Of Heartwarming]] in which Buck must choose between freedom and responsibility. Macaulay Culkin's performance as Tia's little brother will remind many viewers of ''HomeAlone'', and for good reason: it inspired the movie.

What do you get when you have a family emergency, and the only person available to watch the kids is John Candy? You get ''Uncle Buck''.

* {{Badass}}: Buck. Only he could threaten people with power tools and peg them with golf balls, and get away with it.
** Judging by the way Pal reacted when Buck walked over to him when he was coming onto Tia, Buck was responsible for his black eye and split lip.

* ElephantsChild: At one point Buck asks Miles indulges in a motormouth spree of questions about Buck the instant he arrives, culminating in Buck asking him what his record is for consecutive questions asked is.
asked; Miles replies ''thirty-eight''.
* EmotionlessGirl: Again, Tia.Tia presents herself at this, and talks to everyone in an overly aloof tone, but isn't above being overly petty with her younger siblings, mouthing off at her mother and Buck, and clearly being frustrated at leaving her life in Indianapolis behind. Despite this, it's still daunting to see her break down when Buck finds her late in the film.

** [[spoiler:[[SubvertedTrope Not so averted]] in Tia's case. The film never comes right out and says it, but it's heavily [[ImpliedTrope implied]] that Bug did the same thing to her and then tossed her aside like so much garbage.]]
