** Charles: just your typical teenager facing real issues such as bullies and seperation from his girlfriend, or a moody Jerkass who is rude and ungrateful to his father (going as far as to go off about Tom's competitve relationship in high school with his boss, whom Charles is barely ever ''near'') does a poor job dealing with bullied, doesn't care about his siblings, and only apologizes once he knows his father will admit he was right?

* AngstWhatAngst: Dylan is ''much'' too peppy after just having his arm broken when his birthday party goes awry. And it's all PlayedForLaughs.

** Is the children's reckless behavior around the house after the move justified due to having been required to give up everything to support their dad's choice? Or are they a bunch of UngratefulBastards who refused to make the best of it and instead elected to express their disapproval through selfish rebellion?

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: In the sequel, Tom comes to his son's aid when he's harassed by some jerkass teenagers by speaking fluent JiveTurkey at them and leaving them dumbfounded.
* DesignatedVillain/ InformedWrongness: Nora's boyfriend. He isn't fond of children, and appears to be quite awkward around them. This of course makes him a bad person, and we're supposed to find it funny when the kids play pranks on him that could seriously hurt him (setting him on fire, making him trip face first into a paddling pool, etc). Even the parents don't seem to treat it as seriously as they should, it's no wonder he's not fond of the kids if they act like little brats to him.

** Two moments in one. Immediately after the ExiledToTheCouch moment between Kate and Tom, Jessica appears in her dressing gown and asks Tom if he and Kate are going to divorce, due to the arguing between them ever since Kate arrived home. Tom wordlessly picks her up and hugs her. Then Kate appears and reveals Mark has run away. But that's not the worst part. The worst part is Mark's note, which reads "Big families stink!!!". Shows just how unhappy and overshadowed Mark felt he was.

!!Book
* HeartwarmingInHindsight: For most of the book, Dad's regimentation and everything for the children comes off in a joke-like manner. Then, in the last chapter, the narrator tells us that Dad knew he had a bad heart and created all these organizational tools partially to help his wife after he died.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Not a plot, per se, but after the movie theater scene in the second film, we're only shown how Sarah reacts to her father's embarrassment. One could wonder how Eliot felt about his father embarrassing him, since it is never shown.

** He isn't treated as a bad guy for that by the parents of his fiance, they both are mad at the kids for it. She only leaves him when he refuses to go look for Mark, who at that point in the film had ran away, just to watch his own commerical. Even with the way the kids treated him that's still wrong not to go look for your girlfriend's younger brother.

** It can also clash with the values of some people that stereotype people with way too many kids as welfare-drains. While the Bakers don't seem to have any trouble providing for twelve kids, Tina does subscribe to the theory that no one should have twelve kids.
