Trivia

"Xenophobe" was an arcade title by the defunct video game company, Midway Games. However, Sunsoft (developer of the NES version) has been renamed as Shitsoft and gameplay footage was computer-animated. See more »

Goofs

At the Las Vegas casino, Mandi is seen playing a 'One Armed Bandit' fruit machine. A close up shot of the machine shows that she wins the 777 Jackpot but, when the camera angle changes to show her celebrating, the machine shows 3 random fruits, which is actually not a win at all. See more »

Crazy Credits

As the end credits scroll, the Nerd finally reviews Eee Tee for the Atari 2600 in front of thousands of people, and though he still says it is a bad game, his final verdict is that it is cryptic and challenging as well as addicting and he respects that it holds a place in people's hearts. The flying saucer then speeds away. See more »

Alternate Versions

The end credit sequence, along with a scene of the Nerd being transported down from the spaceship, was re-edited, using real footage from the E.T. video game, into a standalone episode. In the movie, due to copyright claims, the game is called Eee Tee. All gameplay of games shown in the film is recreated animated graphics, made to resemble the original games. Actual gameplay for the E.T. game was recorded, and then given to the animators during post-production to recreate with slightly different graphics. In the Movie a sequel to Eee Tee, titled Eee Tee 2, makes an appearance and is comprised of 3D animated graphics, emulating the original video game. See more »

I Hated it.. unfortunately
7 September 2014 | by vicentenogSee all my reviews

I've been a fan since 2008, first new episode i caught was the Wizard movie review episode. Needless to say i really enjoy the show, having re-watched many episodes over and over. As we all know the nerd was always a mix of clever sarcastic humor with childish and fantastic elements. I always preferred The earlier episodes to episodes like the Texas chainsaw massacre or the rob the robot episodes. In other words i never really enjoyed the fantastic elements of the show as much. Its weird with the nerd. We have episodes like the Atari Elemental prize games and then we have the nerdy turd and stupid things like that, regardless i always enjoyed rolfe s work and i think he is a great guy. The reason why i hated the movie so much is because it is completely focused on the absurd elements of the show. We never get any of the clever, sarcastic nerd analysis. Its like avgn always goes down one of two 2 roads; One of well written, ironic and funny reviews, pointing out the actual flaws of the game, which resonates with fans like me, who actually played those games he is reviewing and another one that i honestly don't know who it appeals to, i guess kids, but most people who actually knows what he is talking about are like 26 to 30 years old now. In the end i found the movie very unfunny, almost unbearable, difficult to watch. On James s defense I've seen many cinemassacre reviews in which he praises shitty movies that i wouldn't touch with 10 meter a stick, so at least i know he is being true to himself and to his taste. Its just not my cup of tea, i cannot watch a movie like TMNT 2 and enjoy it for its ridiculousness. Its quite painful for me to be bashing this movie and criticizing the work of this great guy who is a true hero in my eyes, but it could have been better because the nerd has great funny episodes that i can still rewatch and enjoy. The Deader the better and the blue hole movies were quite great so i know james is a capable movie maker. If he had managed to at least find a balance.. The Friday the 13th episode is quite funny even with the theatrical elements, because he does make some of his funniest points on that episode. its just too bad about the avgn movie, just terrible.

To be fair, its not all bad, the acting wasn't as horrible as everybody is commenting, I really enjoyed the acting on the part of mandi and dr zandor, the small alien was also quite funny and well voiced. The problem is: The movie is a disgrace in two major aspects: 1 - the writing (propably the main reason why i believe some people thought it was horribly acted.) 2 - the story and all the major action events in the movie are just too stupid, its difficult to believe anyone would enjoy something like this. The only part of the movie i actually liked was the end credits with the actual review of ET.
