Trivia

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 »

Comedy Silver, to say the least
4 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Nostalgia Critic is just as much a comedy series as it is a review show. That's part of the reason why I and so many others love to watch it; truthfully, I don't care about half the stuff he reviews on his show because I'm unfamiliar with most of it.

Be that as it may, the Nostalgia Critic is very much an ADHD-fueled comedy. Doug Walker plays a loud and sarcastic movie critic that makes just as many calm quips about a scene as he does screaming rants about how awful it is. He himself said that he took a lot away from the Queen of Hearts in Disney's Alice in Wonderland in that sort of loud, grumpy individual in a position of power. There's a lot of Robin Williams and Monty Python in him, and recently the show has evolved more into a sketch comedy satirizing bad movies than a comedic review show like Siskel and Ebert At The Movies.

And he doesn't always review bad things. He sometimes admits to liking the movies he makes fun of, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Commando" or "Hook" starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman. This is where his calmer side remains dominant, as there isn't as much to anger him.

It's not perfect, and occasionally a joke falls flat, but most of his lines hit bullseyes and I always look forward to his next review.
