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

However, site CEO Michael Michaud nixed the idea and suggested Walker address the matter in a more straight fashion, and so the opening was re-shot to include Chester A. Bum, in lieu of Douchey, telling the Critic he needs to atone for his sins. See more »

OH! And here is the Nostalgia Critic preparing to explain his actions.
