Trivia / Midnight Screenings

  • Cast the Expert: Given that Allison Pregler has covered the original show extensively, Brad takes her to Baywatch.
  • Creator Backlash: It's said that Jillian doesn't like doing the show anymore, hence her infrequent appearances.
  • Creator Couple: There are two husband-and-wife teams on Team Snob: Brian and Leddie, and Sarah and Dave. (Brian was previously married to Sarah.) Brad and Jillian are exes.
  • Enforced Method Acting: The video on Breaking Dawn Part 1 with Jillian getting plastered with all kinds of messy things. She revealed she knew what the items were, but didn't know when she'd get hit with them.
  • Missing Episode: According to Brad himself, the very first episode (him and Jerrid reviewing Thor) disappeared due to a Blip glitch.
  • Name's the Same: Since there are two Brians (Brian Lewis and Brian Irving), the latter is referred to by his last name (although early episodes called Irving "Virtual Boyd"). Also, the Vaxxed review features a one-time guest named Sara (no H), who is a different person than usual reviewer Sarah Gobble.
  • No Budget: The show only requires a camera, a dashboard, lights and the people reviewing to be there. Any actual budget is spent on tickets, refreshments and the occasional incentive.
  • Referenced by...: Cinema Snob Reviews Frozen (a fan comic where The Cinema Snob reviews Frozen) uses a few pics from this series, such as how Hilarious in Hindsight it is to see Jake bash Frozen from the trailers, when he would gush about the actual movie.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: The video on The Man From UNCLE was temporarily taken down by Warner Bros., despite Brad pointing out that it was a review by two people in a car that had no footage from the movie whatsoever. The lack of legal standing meant that the video was re-uploaded the same day. What makes this even more of a Headscratcher is the fact that this was a favorable review of the movie that, if anything, would encourage more people to go see it.
  • Strange Minds Think Alike: While talking about Gravity, Sarah and Brad discuss if the movie should have ended with Sandra Bullock finding the half-buried Statue of Liberty from Planet of the Apes. Sergio AragonÚs did a similar cartoon for MAD.
  • Throw It In!: Despite the unscripted nature of the show, this can still happen. It's how the "Slaver Brian" joke got started.
