    The ending would be a good segway for the video where Phelous & Obscurus Lupa are looking for Sesame Street.

    I loved this movie growing up. I was kinda hoping for more, but the video still worked out; I enjoyed it. :)
  • Willowville  - Well...its alright...I guess....
    I mean, don't get me wrong, it is a decent episode, and I can understand how someone would be incapable of trashing their favorite childhood icons. It's just...well...I was hoping for something a little more. In the end, I have to say that I found this review below the quality of some of your best, such as the Captain Planet or Batman & Robin reviews. The fact that The Bum showed up completely threw me for a loop and ultimately left me feeling kinda cheated. I mean, c'mon, I understand the attempted humor, but if I wanted to watch The Bum I would have clicked over to Bum Reviews. Also, if you can't make fun of a certain title really then why not pick something else (I mean, at least when your supposed intention is to ridicule, which would be an exception in the case of Double Dare.) All in all, it barely passes into the realm of adequate for me, a feeling of disappointment the end marker of my week spent in hopeful anticipation.

    I think the point of choosing this movie even though he had no intention to fully critique it was a joke towards many people who look back on their favorite childhood memories and nitpick, but then realize why they enjoyed it in the first place and can't go through with their criticism.
  • Chaotix
    But he did review the movie, he was just dressed like Bum. It wasn't that he couldn't, it's just attempted humor. Humor that succeeded in my book. This was hilarious.

    Why...? I mean, I'm pretty sure everyone here just wants a good laugh. It's not like you REALLY need a review to decide weather to watch "Follow that Bird?" :eyebrow:

    [b]BEST REVIEW EVER[/b]

    I came into this saying "How can we mock Sesame Street?" and you couldn't. You're completely right when you say it embodies our childhood, but to have Chester finish the review is nothing short of amazing. The fanservice is off the fucking chain, and it's just well done because he mocks the movie without needing to actually mock it.

    It's impossible tear apart our childhood, but you did the best job you could without literally arising with a black heart. Well done Nostalgia Critic, well done.

    I see that the Nostalgia Critic gets along with Chester A. Bum better than That Guy with the Glasses does.

    I think I hurt something while writing that. However, I must say that is the most hilarious thing I have seen since the... last time I was here.
  • DarkHarpuia  - Haha.
    avatar
    Great as always :D
  • Sonicmario  - Lol!
    That was awesome! The Bum showing up was just out of nowhere, and it works! Great job!
  • Davoo
    well....that was one of your lesser good videos.

    That being said, it's still great, just not as much as usual.

    4/5 stars. I wish the Critic could have ranted more, but all in all, very funny. I woke up granny...crap...gotta go to bed.
  • rubyfnrox  - ooooh...

    I almost cried remembering the moovee and the show...but I loved the critique...both of 'em! :D :-*

    I have to say that was one of the best ones you have done. This is also probably the first time I laughed at the Bum personality.

    I don't think you can mock Sesame Street as a whole, but there are parts of it that are very mock-worthy. Such as Kami, the HIV-positive Muppet from the South African version. I mean, it's great that they want to educate people about HIV, but seriously? A Muppet?!?!

    I think this might very well be my favorite NC ever. Even though you didn't make fun of it (which, in all honesty, you just can't make fun of "Sesame Street") you still managed to make it so hilarious. Especially whenever you'd see the characters and get all excited. It's okay Nostalgia Critic. Girl's find guys with a sensitive side very attractive.

    The Bum gets around an awful lot for a guy that lives in a box.
  • Punky  - screams!

    i never saw that movie, but still this is damn funny!! Nostalgia critic copy my screaming perfectly ;D ;D

    I was wondering where the Bum was. Now I won't find him for quite some time because I don't know where Sesame Street is either. XP

    Nice review, NC. Short and sweet.

    "I'm Chester A. Bum saying, I remember it so you don't--CHANGE! YOU GOT CHANGE?!?!" Classic.
  • billhicksisgod  - This was a great movie.
    The N.C. can't possibly trash this movie, I'm 23 and I found myself watching this a couple of months ago when it was on HBO, so the Bum coming on at the end I thought was great.
  • ThatFellowInTheCoat

    Absolutely hilarious. I looked at the shorter than usual length of the review, which worried me. But, now it's probably one of my favourite Nostalgia Critic videos. And it definitely was a very interesting and funny twist on the usual Critic video.

    Great job, as usual!
  • CMWaters  - Those who say you can't make fun of Sesame Street.
    avatar
    ...so I'm guessing you guys think that he wouldn't be able to do something with the SECOND Sesame Street movie, "The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland" then?
  • Cab
    avatar
    YES! I was starting to miss the bum, and this was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid. I watched it on beta tape....
    I feel old.
  • noobalicous253  - I also remember another movie,

    I Think it was Elmo in grouch Land
