    Man, I remember seeing this as a kid. Huge disappointment how little time was actually spent on the games. I really don't get why they're so upset that the final competition is a new game; it's not like Lucas or the glasses chick have played it before either. Are Jimmy's skills based entirely on playing the games so much that he's just memorized them?

    Actually, that's not the Nerd. That's the asshole from American Pie 2. Yeah. Bet you didn't know that!

    I think he already knew that wasn't the nerd.

    I don't know - that Bodeans song is great! And Sam MacMurray - hell yeah. I totally noticed the weird Savage acting though - IMO he acts like a door to door salesman

    They're upset 'cause they spent time making him master and memorize all games they could, and now it's worthless.

    Generally, that's how you got good at Nintendo Hard games: you just played them until you beat them by rote memorization and reflex alone.

    I loved this movie! I watched it every day as a kid on cassette (ok, almost every day). But basically, yeah, it was bad... You did scare the crap out of me at the end, I really thought that the AVGN was Jimmy... O.O

    To Ryan Lohner:
    When he's playing Double Dragon you can see he's allready tapping buttons during the introsequence (the AVGN told me^^).
    A Kid who is that enthusiastic about playing videogames must be good^^

    I've only saw this movie once, and I think I was eleven at the time. Even at an age like eleven I could tell when I was watching a messed up, piece of shit of a movie. It was just so awkward and annoying to even look at.

    That Lucas scene got me hot.
  • justebelmont
    CAWIFORNA!

    That was funny review but really when I saw this I was like damn "what games were they playing", the whole damn movie was boring except the game tournement which freaking rocked!

    BTW Lucas is a jerk.

    How dare you call our darling Lucas a jerk?! (sarcmark)

    Another little tidbit: during the scene where the girl marvels that Jimmy's played Ninja Gaiden for so long without getting hit, you can see that he actually has been: two life bars are missing.
  • Aces High
    I dunno, since it's Ninja Gaiden, they were probably marvelling at how far he had gotten without having died and starting over again :woohoo:

    That was probably one of his best reviews to date. Seriously. All the comedy and use of clips and music made this so hilarious to watch.
  • half_ghost
    Oh my lord this video was fucking hilarious I laughed myself to tears looking at it, Nostalgia critic it appears that you surpassed all your videos I have no idea of how your going to top this but this was really brilliant from start to finish. good stuff man!

    Best one yet. The comments are getting cut off at the end though.
  • Funployee109
    The scene with SMB3 intercut with the Raiders footage always gets me in tears, so fucking funny.
  • Krustoff
    Not to be persnickety, but the redheaded girl was played by Jenny Lewis who is now the front woman for Rilo Kiley, a successful alternative band.

    Ah, I remember this classic movie quite well. We used to sit around the TV and munch on popcorn, hoping to catch a fleeting glimpse of SECRET GAMING HINTS in the movie - and by Gum, there were plenty.
    It's really quite impressive what a great advertisement this movie was - it was like a fine wine, mixed liberally with delicious (and nutritious) mud.

    This has the best ending I've ever seen in a video.

    Oh man, I remember seeing it on TV when I was younger. It sucked then, it sucks even more now. Seriously - if a 12 yo kid (me) is laughing his pants off during the scene where they're playing Super Mario Bros 3, because he thinks it's totally dumb, how could I react as an adult? Facepalm, laugh and despair. And what the hell is Cauwlifornia?
  • firewing
    I have to ask the same question with Deano does the kid actually say anything else? Or maybe its code for something else.Lets try to descifer it.
    california
    ainrofilac That sounds like anal fill ass.
    Or maybe the words mixed up mean something.
    analrifico..... I got it analrific thats what the kid is saying all the time he must have been exposed to a bad porno as a child and tryed a word for what he saw "california"...."analrifi co".
  • firewing
    "shurly they have no openings....for gods!" that was hilarious.
  • Mattato
    Average review, but that bit at the end was the perfect way to end it.

    Your realization and subsequent curse had me rolling on the floor laughing.
  • AlbertWikoWonkavitz
    If I drink soda, I can sing "Oh Yeah!"
