an innovative take on the classic Sitcom format

10/10

Upon watching the first few seasons of this series I must say it's a refreshing take on the sitcom format of "Everyone gather in the living room to joke and discuss a topic" of the pre-millenial period that dominated television. This new structure of replacing the upscale open concept living room with the cramped confines of a vehicle simultaneously highlight the emphasis of modern life on 'car culture' and also the growing disconnect people have with the traditional 'home' roles. it's a stunningly brilliant move to place the 4th wall in the windshield area, simple yet effective replacing the television of the traditional set-up. the characters work well together, and the writing is realistic, if not overly so. and there's a solid sense of series continuity. however there is room to improve in cinematography, and choice of location; it can be difficult to see all members of the cast at times. also the cast does need to on occasion rehearse a bit more before committing the scenes to film.

A good show, if flawed. Also it needs more Lloyd.

Some of the best reviews on the internet. I look forward to watching these every week. They are quite possibly the only reviews I care about hearing or reading when it comes to movies.

Newcomers to these video should note that the people in them do tend to spoil the movie so if that is a problem for you wait until after you've seen the movie before watching. They more detail they go into the worse they feel about the movie. But if it's not a problem or you just don't care about seeing the movie they're talking about then sit back and enjoy.

The worse the movie the better and more entertaining the review

Turgid, after hour film reactions from a bunch of nobodies in a car past midnight.

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

It's still shocking this guy has a listing on this site. He and the rest of the TGWTG gang are about as z-level in the reviewer game as you can get. This guy reviews nothing but porn and splatter flicks, not to mention anything weird he can get his hands on. Then tries his hand at actual mainstream movies. To mostly act like a hormonal teenager about with his gang of current friends. Most of these reviews are lacking in even the basic professionalism of most reviewers. Profanity ridden and rather immature in spots with raspberry sounds being made by the man himself several times.

It's sad people take this seriously, I mean it's not even funny, it's pathetic and lame. At least that Jake guy got canned recently, his schtick was getting uncomfortably angry after every kids movie and Adam Sandler flick he went to. I don't think that was really funny, but then again some people have a sick sense of humor now these days.

The man's comment section on the site is rather frightful, all his fans are rather protective of their idol, which is rather unsettling. And he doesn't respond well to criticism of what he does on the show and ultimately his responses are about as immature as his actual reviews.

Some of them are actually plain rude and mean, like he feels like he doesn't need to explain certain things to people and so forth. Oh well. What are you going to do. This guy's got a 8.5 on here for some reason on this show for a badly shot show in a poorly lit car after midnight movie reaction show that stinks like rotten cabbage.
