** Some people people feel this way about the ''{{Film/Titanic|1997}}'' riff, due to being filled to the brim with BlackComedy.
--->''[As the stern is rising up and people fall to their death, while bouncing off of objects on Titanic's stern]''\\
'''Bill:''' [[CrossesTheLineTwice It's]] [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Plinko!]]\\
'''Kevin:''' ''[singing]'' ItsRainingMen!
** To some, this joke about the late Creator/RichardHarris in the ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheChamberOfSecrets'' riff.
--->''[During one of Dumbledore's pauses]'' I think he just died right there.
** An entirely accidental case in ''Swamp of the Ravens'' is when they riff an autopsy scene in the usual manner ... clearly not knowing said scene was an ACTUAL autopsy that was put into the movie, which makes all the riffs rather disturbing.
** A mutual example of this between the audience and the riffers occurs in the Christmas Shorts live show after a mild joke about the little girl in "A Visit to Santa's Toyshop" is [[ParentalFavoritism her father's favorite]] from Kevin draws groans of horror and disgust from the audience, who clearly think he is joking about [[ParentalIncest something else]] which then draws a highly disturbed rebuke from Mike that the audience would think this.
** In the riff of ''Film/TheSwordAndTheSorcerer'', the three are all legitimately disgusted by the joking treatment of an attempted gang-rape, and the "hero's" attempts to use saving the heroine from said gang rape to coerce her into sex.

* SanitySlippage: ''Rollergator'' was already testing the crew's tolerance to start with, but the revelation that the manager of the amusement park in the film has an alligator head and the the film ending with said manager biting someone's head is what breaks them. They then spend the rest of the credits LaughingMad and shooting with machine guns all over.

* ThreeMonthOldNewborn: Happens a lot, and always mocked -- the baby in ''Ator, the Fighting Eagle'' is at least seven months old and super-chubby -- but a rare aversion happens in, of all things, the Greydon Clark-directed ''Dark Future''. Kevin even points out it looks like a preemie, and none of the guys seem comfortable with a baby girl so young being in a trashy movie like this.
-->'''Kevin:''' ''(As the baby)'' "I'm deeply undernourished! Send help!"

[=RiffTrax=] is a website where you can buy (for $3-5 a file) audio [=MP3s=] of Mike Nelson (and occasionally others) making fun of big budget blockbusters such as ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' and the ''Franchise/StarWars'' Prequel Trilogy. Of course, you need to actually own or rent copies of the movies too, since the audio file only contains Mike's witty commentary on the films. [=RiffTrax=] also releases riffs of educational shorts from the public domain, and lately have been featuring more B-movies (public domain and licensed) with pre-synced audio.

Of course, you need to actually own or rent copies of the movies too, since the audio file only contains Mike's The Riffer's witty commentary on the films. [=RiffTrax=] also releases riffs of educational shorts from the public domain, and lately have been featuring more B-movies (public domain and licensed) with pre-synced audio.



Since starting [=RiffTrax=], Mike Nelson has been joined by several ex-''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' loyalists (most notably Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, aka the second voices of Tom Servo and Crow) in his business. Guest stars such as Creator/NeilPatrickHarris, WebVideo/ChadVader, Music/WeirdAlYankovic, and [[Website/SomethingAwful Rich "Lowtax" Kyanka]] have also appeared. Disembaudio will also chime in now and then to crack a joke. Users are also allowed to send in their riffs; [=RiffTrax=] then sells them and shares the money with the users. This program is called [=iRiffs=]. Some notable [=iRiffs=] include [[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Doug Walker]] and his brother Rob riffing ''Film/BatmanForever''.

The concept was preceded by a brief series called "The Film Crew", in which Mike, Kevin, and Bill [[TheDanza played themselves]] and were part of a FramingDevice similar to ''[=MST3K=]'', but much more mundane: they were working in the industry and tasked by their boss, Bob Honcho, to provide commentary on bad movies. A combination of Jim Mallon (owner of the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' franchise) delaying release alongside ''[=MST3K=]'' [=DVDs=] and budget costs in comparison to [=RiffTrax=] torpedoed that project, but [=RiffTrax=] lives on and even inspired original ''[=MST3K=]'' host and series creator Joel Hodgson to get in on the act and create his own spin-off, ''WebVideo/CinematicTitanic''. Two of ''[=Titanic's=]'' riffers, Mary Joel Pehl and Bridget Jones Nelson, recently began riffing shorts for Rifftrax.

** A real example: in the ''Film/IronMan'' riff, they joke about the zany investment show Pepper is watching, saying that the real threat to suspension of disbelief in the movie is the idea of such an obnoxious show really existing. [[https://www.cnbc.com/mad-money/ Mad Money is in fact a real investment show]], and the host was playing a caricature of his persona on the show.
