YMMV: Max Keeble's Big Move
  • Acceptable Targets: Robe is obese, so of course one of his shticks is eating food that's been in the garbage. Then there's Jindrake, who of course has to be evil because he's a principal. And blonde beauty Jenna (Max's crush), who, naturally, talks like a Valley Girl and has Alpha Bitch tendencies.
  • Ear Worm: (sung in a vaudeville Scottish accent) "MacGoogles is me name/I love a swampy bog...."
  • Fridge Logic: Max mentions he plays the bassoon in marching band, but the bassoon isn't a marching band instrument.
    • Never doubt the versatility of a pit band section. Over my four years of marching band, our pit included various mallet percussion, bass guitar, electric guitar, bassoons, timpani, a drum kit, even synthesized strings (played on a keyboard) at one point...
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: Somewhat of a literal example: The scene where Jindrake is pounced by Chad the Chimpanzee and lands face-first in food-fight residue was funny. However, its hilarity decreases somewhat with recent reports that Larry Miller, Jindrake's actor, suffered a freak head concussion.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: A bit of a stretch, but Megan and Robe don't take Max's going to Jenna's milkshake party instead of their going away party well. Brooke Anne Smith, the actress who played Jenna, later plays a pregnant teen who ended up being mentally tortured via cyberbullying until she committed suicide in the CSI episode Unleashed by the head cheerleader in retribution to her essentially taking the prom king nominee.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A bit of a stretch, but Josh Peck plays Robe. Here, he's friends with a girl named Megan. The next time he shares the screen with a girl named Megan, however...
    • McGinty's fear of McGoogles is ironic considering he went on to voice Toad in X-Men: Evolution
  • Unfortunate Implications: If the character's official biographies on Facebook are of any indication, Max Keeble and Jenna (or rather, Jenna Smith, as is revealed on Facebook) are cousins, and given the love triangle subplot of the movie between Jenna, Max, and Megan... you guessed it.
