* EarWorm: Infamously, the song from the trailer.
* FanPreferredCouple: Delgado and Chloe.
* SpecialEffectFailure: Chloe plays the piano for the talent portion of the dog show in the second movie. We cut to her paws on the keyboard while she's ''clearly'' pressing the keys out of sync with the song she's playing.
* SoBadItsGood: While there's a bit of a BrokenBase regarding whether the first movie is this or not, the sequels most definitely qualify.
* TaintedByThePreview: The movie received a lot of hatred thanks to its teaser trailer with the infamous EarWorm.
