* UnintentionallySympathetic: Buck himself. The marketing and other characters save for Miles and Maizy almost seem to paint him as the black sheep of the family for reasons that - much like Tia's jerkassery - are never really fully explored; even the film's poster depicts the family trying to comically barricade themselves in to stop him, but Buck in the film is much more sympathetic and decent than the majority of the cast seems to see him as. The worst thing he does is dodge work... By having to come and look after his brother's kids.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: [[BrattyTeenageDaughter Tia]]. It depends on whether or not you could forgive her for her (initially) cold treatment towards Buck.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: Despite the family theme, there's some crude sexual humor (particularly the NotWhatItLooksLike scene with Marcie) and an AttemptedRape.

* CrazyAwesome: Buck.



* HarsherInHindsight: Early in the film, Buck is attempting to remember the names of the kids and recollects Tia being ''ten years old'', and is shortly chastised by Tia - although that's to be expected - when he doesn't remember Miles and Maizy's names. Later on we learn through Buck's viewing the photo album and Tia's [[TheReasonYouSuckSpeech mixed gloating and whining at Buck]], largely because she's not allowed to go out, that Buck has largely been shut out of the family for years. No wonder, in that case, that he doesn't know where his brother lives or the names of the kids, who don't seem to know him at all; Buck was shut out to the point he'd never met them before.
