For the film:
- The Scrappy: Preston's father is no doubt the most hated character in the movie even more than what the writing intended. In addition to the usual uselessness in most 90's kids films; he lets his two older sons dominate their room for their own business (despite being incomptent at computers), berates Preston for not doing the same despite being clearly too young to do so, starts the plot by being so money tight even giving him twenty bucks for a theme park was too much to ask, expressed more concern about how Preston's bike was ruined rather than concern that he was almost hit by a car, and is overall is just so unlikable that Preston comes just shy of being actually symphathetic in the process. He definitely deserved the Douche label given to him by The Nostalgia Critic.
- Squick: An attractive, 32-year-old, female FBI agent is openly attracted to the prepubescent protagonist, and kisses him on the lips — in front of other cops, no less. After promising to come look him up again when he's thirteen. The Nostalgia Critic played this moment for all it was worth.
