Following his Let's Play of Bart's Nightmare, The Nostalgia Critic has come under scrutiny from his "adoring" fans who have had him incarcerated in an Internet state penitentiary. In attempt to regain his fan base, The Critic agrees to do a positive review for "James and the Giant Peach", and is held at gun point if he dares point out any flaws. He goes on to ridicule the song lyrics, the questionable disappearance of James' parents via a wild rhino, and many other story elements that are never really addressed. Overall, he feels it isn't the worst film he's ever seen and deems it acceptable. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Many fans assumed this video was made in response to negative criticism Doug Walker received over his Let's Play episode that preceded this one. They quickly voiced their support and Walker responded by saying the negative criticism was just as much from him as he was unhappy with the finished product, but encouraged those who enjoyed it to continue to do so. Walker went on to state, "I just think it's always good to be able to mock yourself and never take this stuff TOO seriously." See more »


The Critic claims that the "Eating the Peach" song was written by Randy Newman. Although Newman arranged the song musically, the lyrics were written by Roald Dahl, originating in the book. See more »


Chester A. Bum: Your fans deserve better Mr. MacCritic! Sure you tried something new! It didn't work! It bombed like mad! But now you deserve to give your fans something better! Hey, I liked it, I thought it was the greatest video I've ever seen in my life. But you owe your fans something better!
