    I love the chemistry you two have together in this review. I kind of expected a review of Malibu's Most Wanted.

    Good god, this movie is horrible and putrid. I think I'm gonna have nightmare's watching clips from this movie. Even the advertisement's got some sort of vile evil in it. You two hit the nail on the head with this poor excuse of a film. Too bad Brandon T. Jackson never learned his lesson from Tropic Thunder.

    Oh god, Tyler Perry's Madea could rap ten times better than Big Momma any day. And she was much more funnier too than her I must say.

    Oh dear god. Not you too. Why? Why? At what point did you feel we wanted to see more intrusive, annoying advertisements? It was bad enough when Nostalgia Critic forced that garbage down our throats, and now YOU? I would think Film Brain, of all people, would know that those ads add NOTHING to the video, provide NO entertainment, play the SAME god-awful advertisement we hate from the beginning of the video as a side-effect of using this video player, and only serve to get in the way. I am not watching this.

    All the TGWTG have not choice. Blip revenue is down and they are barely making enough as it is.

    I do not intend to make it a regular thing. However, since this video was shot at MAGfest, that meant I had to pay for a flight there and back. The video is thus meant to cover at least some of the cost.

    I've also taken great care to make sure the ad placement is unintrusive and comes in a natural point in the episode. It doesn't cut into a line anything like that.

    Your understanding in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Besides, is it really worth boycotting a video for maybe 30 to 60 seconds of ads when there is up to 10 times actual content in return? It's a small price to pay.

    As long as it isn't a regular thing. I was willing to put up with NC's stupid ads through Star Trek Month, but doing it after that took it too far.

    I was about to enjoy the review, and skimmed the comments until I saw this bullshit. I couldn't sit and enjoy it until I responded to this post, it pissed me off so bad. Karutomaru, you ungrateful prick. Those commercials are these producers sole source of revenue. They work their asses off to produce these things and the least we could do is stomach 60 seconds of commercials which is less adverts than the dreck on TV.

    And for anyone screaming that they should "get a job": This is their job and they are very good at it. If the CA producers worked a miserable 9 to 5, you wouldn't be getting any of this videos, so piss off. I'm grateful because these videos are another little perk to the day.

    And Film Brain is very professional with his response. I am impressed.

    Film Brain, RC, Doug, Lindsay, Todd, JO, Nash, Linkara, Lupa, CinemaSnob and the rest..keep on keeping on.

    It also takes away revenue from the site. Don't do it, guys. You're taking away income from the people who make the videos you already enjoy for free.

    You go through more ad time for a regular TV show for about the same amount of content. Jeez, we're feeling really entitled, aren't we?
    My one complaint is that it's always that fucking need a reuben now syndrome ad.
  • MisterHongKongBuffet
    Like the Atari Jaguar lady always said, "do the math."

    Regular TV show:

    30 minutes divided into 21-23 minutes of content and 7-8 minutes of commercials. Approximately one quarter of the allotted airtime is advertising. TV shows also spend about 2-5 minutes providing introduction, recap, and credits. In extreme cases, a TV show may spend only 50% of its airtime on actual content.

    TGWTG.com

    20-40 minutes of show plus 2-4 minutes of commercial time. As an absolute worst case scenario, with a minimum of content and a maximum of commercial time, about one fifth of the airtime is advertising. It seems to be a policy that a TGWTG show that is less than twenty minutes long will not have advertising aside from the one minute opening ad.

    FB/RC Crossover

    25 minutes of content (excluding intro and credits), 3 minutes of commercials (approx). Just under 90% of the airtime is new content.

    You tell me what you'd rather be watching? I gave myself a coffee break during the ad break. In the time it took me to walk to the coffeemaker and pour the coffee, the advertising came and left.
  • fanime1  - Thank you!
    avatar
    It's annoying how many people complain about the ads. At least you are only getting at MOST 3 ads and you could easily mute the last one, while on TV you have no choice but to watch at least three times that much. No offense, but they're being such babies.
  • BaltoStephenWinter  - What, Karu? You don't want the website to succeed?

    Really enjoyed these videos. The ads or placements took nothing away from them at all. Do what you have to in order to keep making more.
  • BrockValentine  - Don't react to those nobs...

    ...who bitch about a couple of adverts. Your videos are well worth the "price of admission" (i.e. sitting through a couple of harmless ads). Keep up the good work, I loved your review of "The Marine", it really is terrible and padded to the extreme. Looking forward to this movie which will have a different type of padding.

    the commercial is only like 30 seconds dude, get the sand out of your vagina. if you like the guys videos why wouldn't you want to support him? it's not like you have to even do anything, just stare off into space. geez guy, even brad would call you a snob
  • Future Raiden
    You're being a bit harsh, Karutomaru. This is their job. They need to get paid, and they barely make enough money even before they started doing ad's half way through. Revenue has been down lately, so what would you have them do? It's blatantly unfair of you or anyone else to criticize the reviewers of this website for trying to make money off of what they do for a living. And it's not even that big of a deal. Are you really unwilling to wait thirty seconds for the review to start again?
  • replyman
    avatar
    And no one actually watches the advertising content on TV either. These commercial breaks are too short for you to just leave the room for a bit, and there's no Tivo that will let you fast forward through them if they aren't applicable. Sure, you can mute them and tab off, which is akin to channel surfing, but then you inevitably miss part of the content. Thirty seconds is too short to do something else, but too long to just sit there, in my opinion.

    The same annoyances that make Tivo or other DVRs so appealing also make adblock so appealing. Problem is, when you fast forward through commercials, the people still get paid. With adblock, they don't.

    And, while I still don't like the reviewers coming in and trying to convince people to watch the ads, I do think Matthew did a better job. Still, I could do without the emotional sting at the very end. I don't think anyone should imply that someone should feel guilty if they judge the content not worth the annoyance factor. You made a business decision to employ an extra ad, allow them to make a business (and not emotional) decision not to watch.

    Replyman, I think the Amazing Atheist said it best when he said it was like this:
    "Hey, I'm leaving everybody! Bye! I'm getting out of here because this place sucks!"
    "Well, go. Go on."
    "I'm gonna leave, but first I'm gonna tell you guys how much I hate this fuckin' place!"
    "...why? Just leave. Nobody's trying to stop you. No one cares."
    It is perfectly within his rights to not watch a video, no matter how childish the reason. It is also perfectly within his rights to throw a tantrum about it. The latter just makes him an attention-grubbing whiner.

    Okay, Karuto, in all honesty, how old are you? I'm only 19, and when I grew up I had to wait two to three damn minutes for my shows to pick up again. Thirty seconds is not that bad. I normally get irritated when people say that this generation is full of entitled little bastards, but Jesus fuck, people like you make it hard to disagree with them.

    I just realized why I'm not as fond of Film Brain collaborations as I am just FB by himself: it's because, solo, he has a strong personality. But when he collabs, he usually becomes less dominant. A good example would be the JesuOtaku video.

    This video's intro started out that way, what with the "white guy speaking urban slang" and all, but thank goodness, it didn't last. Matthew seemed far more confident and competent in this one - more himself - than in some of his previous collabs. So nice improvement there, Matthew. I think he and RC played well off each other.

    Also, guys, please don't ever do a live version of that title card.

    Uggh! I vaguely remember seeing the first one. All I can remember about it is the whole experience being terribly uncomfortable. I have no idea who would want to watch more of this. Except maybe for masochistic internet reviewers from Britain. I think hip hop analyzers would much prefer observing pigments losing their moisture. My verdict on the movie: ttp. Terrible, tired, and predictable.

    Ironic that I'm currently reviewing Glee on TV Trash. This show doesn't deserve to stand in Glee's shadow.
  • Fuzzy Necromancer
    Your reaction faces really make this review a delight. It's amazing, considering how hard it is to make a critique of bad comedy funny.

    For some reason I expected the two of you to kiss at the end of the video. Well, maybe more hoped than expected...

    I went to art school only 4 people could fit in the cafeteria per building at a time.

    All girls do at slumber parties is watch marathons of whatever they can agree on & play video games.

    The stereotype is that redheads are bitches, not blondes.

    Nice crossover guys ^_^
  • Japanthewoman
    avatar
    Exactly, that's what my friends and I did at sleep overs. We played video games (a lot of street fighter, soul caliber, spyro, and donkey kong) We'd watch R rated movies when we could get away with it and if we couldn't get away with it we just watched cartoons. Lots and lots of cartoons. And we ate pizza, chips, and soda. Around 2 or 3 am we'd lie down and talk for a while until we fell asleep. Sometimes we would start to wax philosophical. The "girliest" things we may have done were drawing in our sketch books together, bake cookies, or play truth or dare (and I assure you it was mostly truth and the dares were very mild and un-sexual eve in our later youth)
  • CartoonFireworks
    avatar
    Damn, you and your friends are weird! Girls playing video games and watching movies that aren't The Notebook?! That's just absurd! As for me and my friends, we used to do normal sleep-over things, like strip down to our underwear and smack each other with pillows, engage in truth or dare games filled with lesbianism despite our heterosexuality, perform witchcraft, and dance around for no reason whatsoever in the chance that it would result in wacky disaster and hilarity. Everyone knows that it's every girl's dream to take part in contrived slapstick and bad comedy cliches as well as provide fan service, which is why we practice doing so all the time.

    Also, on a less sarcastic note, I've noticed a huge plot hole in the inexplicably popular "guy-dresses-up-in-drag" genre of comedy. There are always two situations that can be easily overcome by a certain word. One is that Dude Who is Hot for Drag Guy hits on Drag Guy constantly, despite Drag Guy's obvious disinterest towards said dude. The other is that Drag Guy #1 always has to keep Drag Guy #2 from hitting on women and expressing sexual attraction toward them. Seriously, has no one ever heard of lesbianism or bisexuality in these things?! All Drag Guy has to do to get Dude Who is Hot for Him to piss off is to tell him that s/he's a lesbian, and the latter is completely obvious.
  • LikaLaruku
    avatar
    It would be much funnier & more believable if the Drag Guy was someone who was teased his whole life for "already looking like a chick."

    Speaking of which, why can't I have an androgynous Shepard? Why can I only choose between balding sinewy at-least-half-white guy with a dead look in his eyes & shorted haired at-least-half-white woman with a dead look in her crossed eyes?
  • LikaLaruku
    avatar
    Same...We had horror movie marathons, anime marathons, comedy marathons, & our version of ToD was called "the hat game" where each person writes one tame & one mean action on slips of paper, like "the girl next to you will wear a blindfold & put lipstick on you" & you have to do whatever the paper you pull out says. We also used Skittles as poker chips.

    wow, this is the first time I seen a review in TGWTG in which the movie was so bad it made watching just a few clips of it painful.
    even the combined power of film brain and rap critic could not make this bearable.
  • Flaregun  - reply to ofer4

    Sunday school musical. The movie Asylum almost lost money on. Apart from that, I know nothing about it.

    Seems to me that Big Mommas there is one of the rare comedies that have managed Narm: being funny, but not in the way intended.
  • lordpants
    The only question I had is why did the FBI need to go undercover, to go to a college unaffiliated with the crime ring? It takes more time and more resources to do that and puts his son in danger.... Oh wait they have to fill their awkward quota. Proceed
  • Arigomi
    avatar
    It's too bad you didn't work in any Tyler Perry references whenever Big Momma was doling out conservative Christian advice.

    I'm still have trouble wrapping my head around the idea that "fat suit comedy" is an genre because there are so many examples of it.

    Are there any plans to review White Chicks? There aren't any fat suits but the white face makeup was the scariest thing ever on film. It also made a lot of money but it was so bad that in 2011 Sony Pictures pulled the plug on the sequel.

    We can survive ads for great reviews.

    I cried while watching this review. Tears of laughter and tears from contemplation of the future of flim.
  • Tameel1
    I know I shouldn't be so bothered by a Big Momma movie, but holy shit did this one piss me off. It shoved in every annoying college girl stereotypes (and a bunch of black people stereotypes too) and tried to make a movie out of it.

    This is just off the top of my head...

    1. Has anyone involved in the making of the movie actually been to university or a dorm/sorority?
    They aren't like this. At the caferteria, people just want to eat or talk. They don't listen to students making demands, they don't announce "fresh meat", they don't BURST INTO SONG!

    2. Has anyone involved in the making of the movie ever been into a clothing store? At ANY point in their lives??
    Girls don't try their clothes on in the same change rooms. Sure, they might show off the clothing they're trying on to friends. But most girls prefer to get changed in private (and also because changing rooms and freaking tiny and there's barely enough room for one person to get changed, let alone two).

    3. SLUMBER. PARTIES. DON'T. LOOK. LIKE. THAT.

    And am I the only one freaked out by that nude scene in the art class? If Big Momma is clearly uncomfortable with being nude, why the hell would the art teacher tear the towel from her?? That's called SEXUAL ASSAULT. Urrghhhhh this mooooovie!! D:
  • alpal95  - holy crappola

    Oh jeezus, I can barely get through the clips of this movie. I feel so sorry for you, Film Brain, for having to sit through all three movies. You deserve a medal. Or at least a discount on the treatment of Post-traumatic stress disorder.

    17:40 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH! MY POOR DEFENCELESS EYES!

    18:07 That girl is way to eager for big momma to get naked. I mean, even it was a sexual attraction, it would be way to eager.

    19:00 Usually, unless shopping specifically for underwear, people keep their underwear on while testing. Since y'know, you usually wear underwear beneath the clothing you're testing.

    20:15 motownopoly? Actually, I'm really interested in seeing that game.

    22:10 To be fair, I wouldn't have expected my target to dress like a girl to infiltrate an arts college either. Between "dressing like a girl for months instead of joining a witness protection program" and "banging someone who looks the same for weird freudian reasons", I still choose the latter as the more likely.

    This college needs a councillor. It obviously has more than a few issues regarding sexuality.

  • browned79  - another great review/crossover
    avatar
    Great review/cross-over. I suppose, celebrities have got to pay the bills and that is probably all that is driving these films for Martin Lawrence, who I believe had to take a pay cut for this film.

    I remember, as a kid, seeing Lawrence in Def Comedy Jam on HBO. I did not watch it or the tv series he starred in regularly, both both of these examples showed that he did actually have some talent.

    Their is something very awkward about men in drag when it should be so obvious to anyone that its a ruse. When it is not done well or...um...' professionally' (if that's the proper term) as part of an identity, then it typically involves making very awkward and lame/stereotypical based jokes about women, homosexuals and or a particular racial or ethnic group.

    Bugs Bunny was funny and Some Like It Hot is a classic, but these were different in style and tone then much of the more recent use of drag or fat suits.

    Here I thought you liked the rap critic, and you want to inflict that on him?

    I mean, even if, like me, you don't entirely hate Tyler Perry, watching four movies close enough to do reviews/rips on them is pretty torturous.

    (My opinion: his stuff was okay the first time. But he keeps on repeating it.)
