Fanservice / The Nostalgia Critic

Go To

  • In the premium area outtakes for Ferngully, when they're dancing, Doug starts giving giving blowjob motions and Lindsay starts rubbing her chest.
  • Giving a victory blowjob to his joystick after the battle with Angry Joe. The gesture is appreciated, Doug.
  • He does like showing off his chest, especially that often-shown scene of when he quits his job.
  • This commercial, with the suffering factor set on deliciously high.
    • Likewise, "Spooning With Spoony II" had him shirtless, traumatized and shamelessly objectified.
  • In the first Care Bears movie, he thinks that the villain is getting eaten out while she does her lines. He then demonstrates by giving us a series of quite lovely orgasm noises.
    • In his Jaws 3D review, he simulates an offscreen sex scene by himself, providing the orgasmic-sounding voices for both the man and the woman. Goodness.
  • The DVD menus seem to be made for this: the first consists of him wearing an air hostess uniform and the second has Rob barging in on him while he's in the shower.
  • When you don't see Marobot's title card, the screenshot he used for his DuckTales episode is the Panty Shot in Suburban Knights. (This one may have been more Blip TV's doing since they often go to stills within a video for screenshots, but it's still appreciated by many.)
  • His chloroforming at the hands of The Nostalgia Chick in her Transformers review. Mostly due how to she's enjoying it and he's, well, not.
  • He's been soaked through at least three times. Doug even said he had to sell his old jacket partly because of it.
  • Advertisement:
  • Done in an equal-opportunity way for the Moulin Rouge! review. Girls get pregnant from Critic singing while guys get the Chick, Elisa and Nella in boob-enhancing corsets. (Behind the scenes, apparently Team NChick had to strongarm Doug into allowing the corsets, as he was worried about them perved over by the creepier parts of the fandom.)
  • Other than it being funny, the only reason why Doug's naked and playing a Depraved Bisexual in this advertisement.
  • Slightly ickier example, but it's hard to miss the "I'm having an orgasm" face when he's pissing on the old Doug theme tune.
  • The giant hickeys on his neck in both Transformers 3 and Jungle 2 Jungle. For obvious reasons, Doug's wife got quite a few internet high-fives after those reviews.
  • In-universe, this is his belief as to why Catherine Zeta Jones plays up her character's bisexuality in the remake of The Haunting (1999).
  • Advertisement:
  • His right nipple in his Jurassic Park review.
  • Doug knows that fangirls like seeing him in pain and he's a lot more sexualised now than he was back when he first started. (Goes for Critic, Ask That Guy and Doug himself.)
  • It probably wasn't a coincidence that Critic getting date-raped by Spoony and Ask That Guy getting terrified/dominated by Sage happened at the exact same time.
  • There's even a joke amongst the other contributors that if their video includes Doug or his characters suffering, the views will usually be pretty high.
  • In Film Brain's livestream of reading the Fetish Fuel Wiki, someone asked if Doug was okay with his rather extreme "yay suffering" page. Film Brain's response was that Doug wasn't just okay with it, he loves that kinda thing and feeds off it. So there's that.
  • While “Are Video Games Art” was less confident than Kyle's version on the subject in regards to the subject matter, Doug beat Kyle in terms of showing skin.
  • Both forms in Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie ("it's pandering time", with Power Rangers fans getting sucked up to note  with "Nostalgia Ranger", and the female audience getting Doug in skintight latex. The man has amazing legs.
  • As lampshaded by Critic himself in The Wicker Man (2006), Tamara's characters hurting and insulting him are what will keep his viewcounts up because fandom likes seeing him squirm (though he still humiliates her, shoves the camera right on her cleavage and puts her in sexy little girl costumes for the portion of the audience who enjoy women getting treated like that.) Also Doug laughed later in Fan World that Critic being tortured was partly an excuse to show off his crotch.
  • Critic's ass in tight jeans is the only part of him visible before he "falls down the rabbithole" in Alice in Wonderland (2010).
  • Even though he's at a whole new point of breakdown, the camera angle at the end of Foodfight! makes sure to get in his ass and show off how long his legs are.
  • For Small Soldiers, Tamara wearing a dress that proves Buxom Is Better, Doug in a lot of leather and make-up as Devil Boner, and Doug's legs as he gets into bed at the end.
  • His cameo in The Last Angry Geek's Future's End episode, where he's a broken Sex Slave for the Snob and actually kneels down while unzipping sounds are heard. Intentionally exploited by Brian to make the fangirls happy, as he confirmed on twitter.
  • Defied with Doug's Ice Bucket Challenge. He knows full well that everyone wants to see him get soaked, but it's just a Cool as Ice DVD falling on his head before he stalks off.
  • Proving himself a lot more up for it than Doug was, Malcolm shows off some serious muscles in his ice bucket challenge video.
  • Subverted in the promo to see editorials early. When the audience waits out the timer, he feels duty-bound to show a nipple, but the video cuts out as soon as he lifts his shirt.
  • In the “Princess Diaries 2” behind the scenes video, Jim does some pull-ups and Rob jokes about his invoked Estrogen Brigade loving it. Dayna (Doug's ex girlfriend) also shows why he liked her in the first place by dead lifting him off the floor.
  • His Sixth Day crossover with Sci-Fi Guy is particularly homoerotic, starting with Critic landing on Guy's lap, making giving blowjob motions after saying “a mouth is a mouth”, and ending with present Critic wanting a clone of himself as a Sex Slave.
  • As a bonus to all the cool choreographed fighting between Dante and Critic in the “Top 11 Best Avatar Episodes”, the way it's filmed means everyone who likes Doug's ass and legs is in for a fun time.
  • Doug posing prettily in a cheerleading outfit. Bless his heart. Gets even better in behind the scenes, as Rob is so uncomfortable at Doug's flirty posing that he jokes he can't watch schoolgirl anime anymore. He also teases fans that he's collecting all of Doug's drag moments in a folder that he'll sell to the highest bidder.
  • In “Rise Of The Commercials”, for the “skip it” parody, there's a cut to Doug suddenly losing his clothes and having a Naked Freak-Out for many valid reasons.
  • The Purge has a random as hell shot of Doug's sketch character just in underwear. Aside from the nice legs we already knew he had, he has an... impressive bulge.
  • Tamara in Daredevil is wearing a tank top that pushes her breasts right up and is really low cut.
  • While doing a Cards Against Humanity panel at a con, when a card read out “-enjoying a striptease from the Nostalgia Critic”, Doug being Doug instantly gave the audience a show.
  • In The Legend of Zorro review, bending over his desk and noisily pretending to get spanked.
  • In-universe, Malcolm's powers in Fantastic Four (2005) creates Chun-Li for him and Critic to enjoy, but Critic tells him “the lady” (Tamara) should also have something and he gives her Zangief. She's appreciative.
  • Literally the first shot of him in the Critic Tank Shark Jumping episode is giving a blowjob to his pen.
  • While obviously we don't see it, Critic in Pixels saying that being tied up and ball-gagged is actually more comfortable than he expected.
  • Much like how Tom Hardy in the same position got appreciation from his fangirls (who get in-universe mocking later on in the episode), Critic muzzled and in iron handcuffs at the start of the Mad Max: Fury Road review.
  • In the Event Horizon behind the scenes, Doug is in some interesting positions for the “fire coming out of his ass” bit, and when Malcolm says he doesn't know what to make of it, Doug jokes “I'm going in the direction you thought I was going in, I'm going into porn”.
  • Played for laughs in Hocus Pocus with Beth's "Come Little Children", as she's overly sexual with her broom and creeps the other witches out.
  • In Spawn, while it's not treated as such in-universe, Tamara in latex and a lot of belts is pretty appealing, as she pointed out herself.
  • In The Phantom of the Opera (2004) behind the scenes, Tamara and Beth zoom in on Doug's ass and he shakes it for them.
    Beth: Happy International Women's Day!
  • While Jason is horrified, Doug lifting his shirt at the end of The Mountain and wiggling.
  • In Spy Kids 3D, Critic rubbing himself like he's having an orgasm at the chorus of Pokemon fans booing him.
  • In Jem, both Critic and Malcolm are in drag, with the former in a pink top that falls right off his shoulder and Malcolm in a cut off shirt that shows his muscled arms. The music video at the beginning also alternates between intentional awkward and moves/poses where Doug totally knows what he's doing.
  • In the parody end of Alvin and the Chipmunks review, while there's no Male Gaze (any shot of leg is just a consequence of having adult women recreating chipette moves), Tamara, Aiyanna and Heather are all dancing around and wearing short skirts. And then there's Doug's voice, which always gets the fangirls sighing.
  • Much like how Holtzmann in the movie licking the gun is a favorite of queer girls, Aiyanna in the Ghostbusters review doing the same was instantly loved.
  • Even before the review came out, there was intense thirst for Critic in chains and a kinky caption by Tamara.
  • In the review of Fant4stic, she's not in it very long and he goes back to normal clothes after five minutes, but the episode features Tamara in a low-cut tank and Doug in leather pants.
  • The opening of Wonder Woman (2017) starts off with Doug shaking his booty, and Tamara as Wonder Woman whipping him.
  • In the Goofy Movie review advert, Doug models jeans by shoving his ass right into the camera.
  • Parodied in Dragonball Evolution where Critic imitates Bulma showing some leg by twirling his non existent hair and rubbing his chest.
  • Doug feeling himself up while covered in blood is a special kind of pandering.
  • Malcolm as Finn gets some rare fanservice when he licks his weapon in The Last Jedi. Of course Doug was the one who suggested he do it.
  • Lampshaded in the 2017 livestream, where Doug's excited that flirting with Brad gets the donations going up and the others tell him to rub his nipple for more.
  • The Batman Forever promo pictures had a lot of Doug's Critic shirt being cut open to show off his nipples. In the actual review beginning, he's annoyed and Tamara keeps groping him. The advert also has Doug in a tuxedo and modelling it to advertise.
  • Chipwrecked is a wedding episode, so Doug and Malcolm are in handsome tuxes, even Devil Boner is in a shirt tux, and Tamara looks amazing in a bridal version of Hyper's costume.
  • Sleepwalkers being so batshit seems to give Doug an orgasm in the first viewing, moaning "you do me good" and rubbing himself.
  • The Wall has Tamara in a maid costume and Critic tormented/felt up by Body Horror creatures and shoved in a CGI cage for a few minutes. Plenty of people found Doug’s singing voice and said creatures sexy too.
