* ValuesDissonance: Plenty to go around, but the early montage of moments where various children who to school with North are negatively compared to North over minor offenses like a messy bedroom or eating cookies before dinner by their own parents probably won't sit well with those who recognize this as misguided parenting.

* CringeComedy: Infamously so, often regarded by critics as one of the worst comedy movies of all time.



* UnreliableNarrator: North recalls things said of him by other parents that he probably shouldn't known to have been said, possibly feeding to his own ego in bringing up the praise he claims to receive. Additionally, North's mysterious mentor recalls North's entire story, also speaking of things he should not know about and all happening to narrate the things that happen to all be in his ''dream''.

Added DiffLines:

* SoBadItsGood: Considered this in some circles for just how utterly ridiculous the plot of the movie is, with a few likening it to a badly written live action cartoon.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: It's supposed to be a kid's movie with some adult jokes in there, but the "child-friendly" scenes are too childish for adults and the "adult jokes" are too raunchy for kids, and that's not even getting into the stereotypes. In short, no member of the target audience is pleased.

-->'''Father:''' Well needless to say it was a mighty big loss.
* EthnicScrappy: The main reason why the movie is hated. Texans, Hawaiians, Inuits, Amish, French: no race, state, or country is safe.

* {{Narm}}: North's panic attack. Apart from the fact the writers apparently didn't know what a panic attack looks like (i.e. NOT THAT), the line, "Quick, loosen his pants" just hammers the point home.
* NeverLiveItDown: Rob Reiner never fully escaped the shadow this movie cast upon his resume with its plethora of racially insensitive humor and unlikable characters.

* WTHCastingAgency: Most of the cast could fit into here. The most unexplainable is probably [[Literature/{{Misery}} Kathy Bates]] and [[Film/TheGodfather Abe Vigoda]] with their faces painted brown playing Eskimos, which was criticized as racially insensitive and "an ugly piece of [[TheOldestProfession cinematic prostitution]]" by WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic and labeled a "new low in bad taste" by Ebert at the end of the year the movie premiered (Bates also got a Razzie nomination for that appearance).

Alan Arkin as Judge Buckle may count as another, whose performance Ebert also panned in his review.

** Of course, they would stress the importance of physical labor on their farm, and most kids aren't exactly leaping at the chance to bale hay or plow fields. And as for going entirely without TV...
