** Even more family-unfriendly: it also teaches you that trying to always live up to your family's expectations of you can drive you crazy, or at any rate destroy your sense of yourself.

* ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' says that even the corrupt rule by the callous rich and powerful (and their loyal foot soldiers in the police) is better than allowing the poor to rebel, which just leads to rule by criminal.

* ''Film/BackToTheFuture'': the film is supposed to show that George achieves success in various aspects of his life after learning to stand up for himself. However, Crispin Glover has said that the reason he left the series after the first film is because he thought the film showed that George was rewarded with material wealth for violence and bullying.

* Considering how ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' is a metaphor for racism using mammals in place of humans, it was kind of inevitable. The movie demonstrates that everybody is a carrier AND a victim of racism (even the main characters themselves aren't free from this), even with those who are open-minded and/or suffered the most from racism ([[spoiler: Part of [[BigBad Bellwether's]] motivation for the Night Howler plot stems from feeling like she needed revenge for the racism she suffered at the paws of many predators]]). While it's harsh, and not really a thing anybody wants to admit, it's pretty much how racism works in the real world. Fortunately, the blow is softened in the sense that it shows that you ''can'' overcome your biases if you actively work on moving past them (A thing [[RighteousRabbit Judy]] swears to do as part of her CharacterDevelopment), and that bigoted characters such as Judy's parents and [[DaChief Chief Bogo]] can become more open-minded and accepting of other groups over time.

** Of course, there are much more optimistic lessons to take from it as well: Don't let educators push religious belief on you, or always put arrogance in it's place.
