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 »

The Best
5 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Nostalgia Critic has inspired me to review film. His reviews are hilarious, and they are very informative like the Angry Video Game Nerd. I love AVGN, but Nostalgia Critic will always be the most entertaining, and informative reviewer on the internet. Every week he gives us another great review. My favorites are Tom and Jerry the movie review, Batman and Robin, Garbage Pail Kids, any of his top 11 lists(including top 12 Christmas), and The Room. (It was removed from his site, but it can be found on youtube) Nostalgia Critic is my true inspiration. His jokes are hilarious, the information he gives is very informative, and he is my true inspiration.
