Did You Know?
The Critic often uses the term "Big-Lipped Alligator Moment" to describe moments in movies that come right out of nowhere, have little to no bearing whatsoever on the plot, are way over-the-top in terms of ridiculousness even in the context of the movie, and after they happen, no one ever speaks of them again. This is named after a scene in the film All Dogs Go to Heaven
(1989), where a big-lipped alligator appears, has a random musical number, then is never mentioned again. Ironically, the term was originally coined by the Nostalgia Chick, not the Critic. See more
