* CultClassic: The film's look, tone and (unfortunately likely) [[MinorityShowGhetto intended audience]] didn't do the movie any favors in it's theatrical run. On video, however, all of those things helped it eventually find an appreciative audience.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: This film and [[Main/AdultsAreUseless its players]] presents the idea that [[Main/ExaggeratedTrope attraction is something worth wading for]], no matter how [[Main/RuleOfSexy muddy the water]], [[Main/PsychoExGirlfriend thick the moss]] or [[Main/QuestForSex convoluted the goal]], it also carries the message that children (while very cumbersome) are exempt from taking responsibility, [[Main/KarmaHoudini bullet biting]] and [[Main/NeverMyFault crow eating]] aren't necessary as [[Main/KidsAreCruel kids will be kids]] and when all else subsides, [[Main/PerpetualPoverty cheap]] [[Main/FreudianExcuse ploys]] will do in a pinch. (Though considering Robin has baggage that the object of his attraction has to deal with as well, it's a two way street.)

* CrossesTheLineTwice: Most of Robin and Dorthea's "Yo Mama" jokes (which, of corse, is the point).

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: Really, a lot of the humor is very adult-related.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Several of the sequences, most infamously the robot trial sequence, make for some especially trippy and confusing sequences.

Added DiffLines:

* UncertainAudience: It's difficult to say exactly why the movie is made for. It's based off of a routine from a comic who was not known for being family-friendly and has enough jokes that are either too vulgar or too sophisticated for children to earn a PG-13 rating, but the titular Kids get most of the screen time and are definetly part of the "kid empowerment" trend from the early '90s, not to mention the production design looked like something out of a SaturdayMorningCartoon, which turned off plenty of adults.

* MinorityShowGhetto: At least partially why the film eventually developed a cult following. The pickings are, sadly, [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog still]] [[WesternAnimation/{{Home}} slim]] when it comes to animated features with non-white leads and voices. That's not to say that there aren't white fans, but they are few and far between.
