Trivia

When the movie was selected, none of the writers had watched the entire thing. While writing for the episode, they saw the entire movie for the first time, including the graphic rape and murder scene halfway through. Shocked, the writers edited the entire scene out of the episode. After that, movies being considered for the show had to be watched in their entirety before they were selected. See more »

Goofs

During the "Sidehackin'" song in one of the bridge skits, a blue screen is used to show footage from the movie in the background. Joel's blue jumpsuit bleeds into the movie footage. The footage also shows through the neck of Crow's blue guitar. See more »

"Shot with a tomato gun"
26 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well people I believe I first heard of this wonderful TV show fifteen or years ago and I've been trying to track down every single episode and now I've finally achieved my goal! Well okay, there are still technically a few I haven't seen because I can't find them at all or it's a movie I already saw or they're episodes of shows, but you get the idea. With the show finally returning, I'll be happy to go back to reviewing these episodes soon. It has been so fun watching a seemingly neverending series of episodes with still more coming out. I doubt I'll ever see any more old episodes. It has been so fun while it lasted.

This episode is great as always, especially with everyone singing at the end. This actually was a pretty depressing movie because it was boring had nothing to do with anything. It seemed like Cambot may have been more active in this than any other episode! Apart from all the stuff that happened out of the theater, we actually get to see him (it?) make a joke. During the film, Cambot shows a scoreboard joking about the film. I can't think of any other direct way Cambot riffed.

There were too many great lines to count. I really liked it when the movie said, "How come no one laughed?" with the joke, "Maybe because it wasn't funny." I'm such a big Hall and Oates fan that I couldn't help but love when the film said, "She's gone" with the riff, "I'd pay the Devil to replace her". I also really liked, "No newcomer to this new sport?" and, "Isn't that an oxymoron?". A great one shot one was, "Next thing, you'll be throwing money at food and clothing!". Until the show finally makes some new episodes, see you all next time! ****
