These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Non-Indicative Name: Despite having a few references to Hanukkah, the film has little to do with the eight nights of Hanukkah and is more of a buddy comedy (and the year the film was released, Hanukkah began four weeks before Christmas).
Tear Jerker: Davey's past and possibly the mall scene where he finally reads the Hanukkah card his parents where going to give him before they died.
What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: Yes, it's an animated wacky holiday musical rife with toilet humor, but it is most definitely not for children. Doesn't help that in Canada, the movie's rated PG. 14A would have been more like it.
Jerkass Woobie: Davey, after you learn that his parents died when he was a boy. On Hanukkah.
And this happened when they were on their way to watch his basketball game. Which, before he learned of their deaths, he worked himself to the core winning as a tribute to not only his parents, but to the parents who always came to watch their kids play basketball...despite the fact that they never win. Hoo boy
