After accepting the Nostalgic Critic's challenge to review the worst movie he can find. The Nerd uses a movie titled Ricky 1. It's meant to be a parodied movie towards Rocky except it goes way beyond the perspective of "parodied movies". The Nerd expected it to be something similar to Airplane or Naked Gun, only to be disappointed that it's no where as funny as those movies. Instead the movie contains a lot of scenes that have nothing to do with boxing or the Rocky movie what so ever. Such as sight gags, jokes that made no sense, and characters that feel out of place.
