* RonTheDeathEater: Sure, Buck was a [[ParentalNeglect neglectful]] [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic jerk]] in the film, but many reviewers make him out to look like an outright abusive sociopath.

The [[TheWikiRule Disney Wiki]]'s article on him [[http://disney.wikia.com/wiki/Buck_Cluck?direction=prev&oldid=2400862 was once written]] to make him out into the main villain and even lists "neglecting his son" under his likes before being edited to be more neutral.

** Fans of hand-drawn animation have pointed to this film as proof that Disney would never be as good as it once was after shutting down the 2D unit to focus solely on CGI, although it hasn't been as big of a deal since Disney all but disowned this movie and has since made better-received CGI ones, including ''{{Disney/Frozen}},'' ''WreckItRalph,'' ''BigHero6,'' and ''{{Zootopia}},'' the last of which also used a cast of PettingZooPeople but was much more successful with audiences and critics than this movie.

** Morkubine Pocupine, who despite being prominently featured in so many posters and ads gets all of three lines in the whole film.

* OneSceneWonder: Creator/AdamWest as the actor playing Chicken Little in the [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within the Movie]] at the end of the film. So glorious is his LargeHam that many wished that ''he'' was the actual main character.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: You can tell this film was trying (and failed, considering the company the film was released by) to emulate [[Creator/DreamworksAnimation DreamWorks]]' then-huge brand of snarky, in-your-face "edgy" humor by just how cynical it is, from how the main character is bullied by his entire town, his father being openly ashamed of him and passively having one character be [[MindRape mind raped]].
** The fact that [[ExecutiveMeddling Michael Eisner]] wanted to push for this style just to beat DreamWorks founder/Disney Renaissance alumnus Jeffrey Katzenberg [[BeatThemAtTheirOwnGame at his own game]] doesn't help matters.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: The film was very obviously trying to capitalize on the snarky, more cynical approach that had worked so well for Dreamworks in their previous works, as seen in Michael Eisner's rivalry with Jeffrey Katzenberg. The studio very quickly found out that this is not what their audiences wanted from Disney, and have since made a point to avoid this approach in their later movies.

* TakeThatScrappy: Given all the abuse they deal to Chicken Little, odds are you will not feel sorry for the townspeople when the aliens come to terrorize and seemingly vaporize them.
