    Watching this reminds me Doug really needs to be a bit more...I guess you could say, in your face. I mean, he has his small spurts of his "classic" craziness, but other than that, it's just him sitting there with his hands on top of each other. Also, I found that sketch right before the commercial pretty funny (the one where Rachel is holding Malcolm hostage).

    Overall, it was meh. Nowhere near as good as the old episodes, but better than some of the new ones.

    Decent review overall. The whimsical jokes could've been toned down, and the Disney logo jokes were already done enough (and funnier) in the Jungle 2 Jungle review, but the rest of the jokes like the outdated bully lines, God being captured, and the ''whimsical pooping'' felt pretty up to par with his some of his original reviews, and the fact that there wasn't a crappy side plot or commercial in it helped keep a focus on the actual movie which was nice for a change. Plus, Rachel and Malcolm were surprisingly decent in all of their appearances (actually laughed at them in the ''whimsical crap'' sketch and leaving for Collegehumor at the end), so overall, not at all the good old Nostalgia Critic review like Malcolm said, but it had some funny jokes in it, and there wasn't anything cringy or overly boring about it, so compared to what the show has done lately, it's a decently good episode.

    Overall: 3.5/5. Terabithia God dammit.

    Doug linked this video on his facebook a few days ago and I found the top comment to be a bit ironic

    An artist who cannot see or understand the criticisms of his audience is not deserving of praise.

    Watched the review... Thought it was pretty good overall.

    After Doug has done so many stories and plots as his review framework recently, him just doing one straight was very refreshing. And I can see why he picked this movie in particular... It had shades of Drop Dead Fred with the whole insanity/imagination angle, as well as being extremely whimsical like so many of the kids movies he has reviewed. It also reminded me (in a good way) of the Timothy Green episode too, with the focus on how ridiculously sunny, upbeat, and out-of-touch the film is. The whole tire swing thing, the painting scene, and the stuff with the bullies (a NC staple) were the highlights. Oh, and his jokes about the younger sister (the Count of Monte Christo thing, the god damn thing) were also really funny. I appreciated that he could find some good things in the film too, with how they handled the ending and everything. It underlined the problems with the first half of the film. I've never seen the film, but now I'm wondering what the hell was the point of the Zooey Deschanel character. She sings songs, takes him on a school trip, but doesn't seem to do anything.

    I did think there were a few jokes that did drag a little too long. I really liked the Crazy Rachel skit she did with Doug, but probably could've done without the Malcolm scene right after. Seemed a little Modern Simpsons-ish in terms of taking a joke a little too far. The whole bathroom whimsy joke works (and the tag at the end) but they could've shortened that one a bit too.

    Overall, solid review.

    can we seriously not dismiss other people's opinions if they're positive.

    I mean, christ he didn't give the review a blowjob or anything.

    i actually agree with his points here, this was probably the first one that sort of clicked for me since either his south park top 10 or that cat in the hat review.

    I think it was that lack of a plot that really made it click. I do actually like it when he decides to tell stories sometimes in his reviews, but when he does it every. single. week, it loses its luster quite a bit and the writing suffers too. You can see that Doug is reaching for a "big concept" for every review and he doesn't always make it. If he would've done 2-3 "straight" reviews and then did the Really Big Avatar Review, it would've felt like a bigger deal.
