** The animatronics used in many scenes for The Beast don't hold up particularly well. Though in a bit of FridgeBrilliance that may make them work even work ''better'' considering his mythic status among the kids.

* RecycledScript: The second movie's plot is almost exactly the same as the first, with the exception of a few plot details.

to:

* RecycledScript: * PoliticallyCorrectHistory: The second movie's plot is almost exactly the same as the first, movie takes place in 1962 and features Benny, who's Hispanic, and Kenny, who's black, hanging out with white kids all around town with no one batting an eye (their races aren't even commented upon). At the exception time, institutionalized racial segregation was still in effect in many areas of the country. Even in a few plot details.more liberal area like Southern California, you'd be hard pressed to find a black kid playing baseball with a bunch of white kids. (It's not impossible, though.)

* Sequelitis: The second movie is not really liked due to its RecycledScript. Subverted with the third movie, since it is better received, but not as much as the first one.

** It's hard to imagine Squints getting off with just being banned from the pool for life over his stunt. Sexual harassment and matters of consent have become SeriousBusiness even for ''children''. Today he could likely expect ''serious'' legal ramifications. Since the movie took place in the height of the Mad Men era when sexual harassment was as American as apple pie, he probably would've just gotten slapped back then.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop/ValuesDissonance: Forcibly, nonconsensually kissing a girl is an important, cheeky rite of passage. It's said that they were "banned from the pool forever that day", but this is a sidenote, so the example is still valid. She's even said to have been impressed by it and married him in the epilogue.
