** The Cat saying "EGGS! EGGS!" has also become rather popular.



* FridgeBrilliance: The reason Cat is threatening violence or planning to threat violence to Nevins is because he's a Cat and Nevins is a dog. Cats naturally hate dogs.

** "Dirty hoe!"[[note]]One of many infamous moments of GettingCrapPastTheRadar in the movie.[[/note]]
** "CHA-CHING!"[[note]]This line comes immediately after a scene where Conrad compares the slide they're on to a theme park. The Cat chimes in "You mean like at...''Universal Studios?!''", holds up ''tickets to the park'', and then says this line. WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic suggested this be the new Dr. Suess logo, complete with [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryTheMovie Dr. Lickboot]] saying "We've got to have...MONAAAAY!".[[/note]]



* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: It's pretty obvious that poor Mike Myers was trying his best to make the this film at least bearable, but there was simply nothing he could do to save the disaster. Same for Sean Hayes.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The matador scene from the song near the beginning has absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the song or the rest of the movie. Arguably the entire song could count as this, but that bit especially.
** [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Originally]], the matador scene was the setup for a [[DeletedScene deleted verse]] which can be heard on the soundtrack CD and accessed on the "Deleted Scenes" feature on the DVD. Needless to say, this BLAM could have been averted if the verse was left in the final cut. Thank goodness that was cut.

** The whole "Rave" scene as the group are running away from Lawrence. Err...why?
*** That scene serves [[TheCameo to show]] Creator/ParisHilton [[InDaClub in her natural environment]].
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mrs. Kwan.

** The Cat pausing the film to advertise Ride/UniversalStudios.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Mrs. Kwan.Kwan has become this due to being one of the film's less annoying characters.

* SoBadItsGood: Between the [[{{Narm}} hilariously terrible acting]], [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar adult jokes]], and disturbingly high number of pop-culture references, it's easy to see why some people view this a GuiltyPleasure.

* AwesomeArt: The [[Creator/UniversalPictures Universal]][=/=]Creator/DreamWorks[=/=][[Creator/ImagineEntertainment Imagine]] [[VanityPlate logos]]. All three animated in the style of the original book, with some gags thrown in (Mr. Krinklebine even appears in Imagine's ripples). The movie may be reviled, but most admit the logos at least surpassed it.

* {{Misblamed}}: Between his WagTheDirector antics on previous films, and credited screenwriters Alec Berg, Dave Mandel and Jeff Schaffer (who did the uncredited re-writes for The Grinch) being responsible for the well-received ''Film/EuroTrip'' just a few months later, Mike Myers was widely accused of rewriting the screenplay and at the very least having added all the smutty humor, if not outright destroying what had once been a good adaptation. In reality though, Myers' contribution extended to no more than the occasional ad-lib on the set. That said, Berg, Mandel and Schaffer's screenplay apparently ''was'' put through the rewrite process, just not by Myers.
