    open/close all folders 


    Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 
  • The intro with Snob watching Brad on a news report (see the MAGfest vlog about him getting back home to get the context).
  • "As you can see, Universal decided to blow up the world instead of releasing the movie."
  • All of the Actor Allusion jokes.
    • "Ummm, God?"
    • "Well that's ironic, it was George Burns who just convinced me that there's no God."
  • When old Sgt. Pepper drops dead: "Oh thank God, short movie!"
  • Snob inserting Apu's rendition of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" while Billy's brother Dougie introduces the band.
  • "What the fuck, Sexbots? Initiate rimjob sequence at once!"
  • Rescoring the PG-rated orgy with the notorious boat ride poem from Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory ("There's no earthly way of knowing...").
    • And before that, when the record producer spiked Billy's drink:
    Cinema Snob: Of course, it's a family movie! What may start up like Grease ends up like Wolf of Wall Street!
  • "I only sleep on vinyl water beds, it has much warmer feeling, thank you very much!"
  • "Hmm, the white people version of Trapped in the Closet is lame-er."
  • "I just witnessed Barry Gibb get in a fistfight with Alice Cooper. Maybe this time it's true. Maybe now I have seen everything."
  • Snob is understandably confused when Strawberry Fields is sung... by a character named Strawberry Fields.
    Snob: "Let me take you down because I'm going to me?" It's a really roundabout way of asking him to go down on her!
  • About the balloon's registration number: N12E9R
    Snob: By the way, if you can take your glasses off, it looks like the balloon is saying something incredibly racist!
  • Snob notes that the last musical act the main characters have to confront are "Future Villain Band" (Aerosmith), and how Aerosmith's cover of "Come Together" (alongside Earth, Wind & Fire's cover of "Got To Get You Into My Life") were the movie's Breakaway Pop Hits.
    Snob as Steven Tyler: [as Billy Shears fights Tyler's character] Dude, do you mind? We're singing the only song in the movie that still gets radio play!
  • The Snob made a Running Gag through the episode about how Billy is pretty much useless, so when he manages to defeat Steven Tyler's character (and even then it's because Strawberry Fields pushed him), he says that it's his opportunity to "show some confidence, save the girl!"... only for Strawberry Fields to fall to her death. His reaction could very well be Brad Corpsing:
    Snob: [laughing] Oh my god, this movie sucks!
  • It's safe to say that the ending of the Magical Weather Vane in honor of Sgt. Pepper coming to life (as Billy Preston), catching a suicidal Billy who had just jumped with a magical lightning bolt and restoring Strawberry to life caught the Snob off-guard.
    Snob: The fuck?!? Billy Preston, what are you doing here?!?
  • Snob talking about The Cameo-filled finale.
    Snob: Ugh, never mind music, I now hate sound.

    E.T. XXX: A DreamZone Parody 
  • Any references to previous E.T. pornos and parodies, including the use of the Disco sequence from Nukie when Ellie and the alien communicate through hand gestures.
  • When pointing out other films made by the same director, he highlights "I Want You to Make My Ass Pregnant" and says "So it's directed by a guy who doesn't know how sex works. No wonder he wants to fuck an alien." Then 50 Shades of Grey: An XXX Adaptation gets "Um, okay, Department of Redundancy is located in the Department of Redundancy."
  • Brad (as himself) watching a scene of E.T. masturbating.
  • Snob's reaction of disgust and tiredness when he plays the sound effect of E.T.'s ejaculation.
  • "By the way is this a science lab or Dexter's murder room? You mixed up the Dexters goddamnit!"
  • "I hate this scene. They replaced all the cops' dicks with walkie-talkies."

    The Conqueror 

    Endless Love 
  • The Snob initially making fun of the film's tagline dealing with the respective ages of the lead couple and how "it's the love every parent fears". By the end of the review, the film's tagline is awfully appropriate, but not for the right reason.
  • The Snob's ever-growing horror from the constant Moral Dissonance of the film, which makes the teen romance seem more like a thriller. Some examples:
  • Making fun of the credit sequence, which repeats the words "Endless Love" over and over.
    "Darn it, the cat's on the copy/paste button again...you get off that keyboard, Lloyd."
  • The Snob's ominous statement at the end, where he says he's going to see the remake of Endless Love, which is coming out in theaters the following weekend.
    • Which, as it happens, did not go down well for poor Brad.

    Fatal Games 
  • When Snob says that he has been cooped up in the last 7 years, he states that his flu "sort of began like this". Cue Snob (or Brad) being naked with only his All-Stars in the snow and falling sideways towards it and shivering with the massive cold.
  • His utterly flabbergasted reaction to the killer's identity.
  • Brad sees a guy wearing a shirt with the word "FIRST" on it. "Nice shirt. Now I definitely want him to die for being the first person to ever call out FIRST! Sorry, he beat you all to it."
  • Snob's continued bewilderment on how the film keeps adding in more soap-opera elements (such as a character desperately asking for help because it's their last shot leading to him to question whether it's a slasher film or an inspiring sports comeback film or another scene where an injured gymnast tells a friend that they have to win for both of them, saying none of them are going to win Oscars for this movie).

    Hitler's Harlot

    Caddyshack 2 
  • Brad sums up Chevy Chase's involvement in the movie by showing the movie's trailer, in which Chase asks, "Is there any money in it for me?"
    • Also, the fact that Chase himself is the only actor who is consistently funny BECAUSE he doesn't give a shit.
  • When Brad complains about Mason's performance as he's being driven to the country club, he delivers the word "schtick" with the intensity of an upper-echelon swear.
    Snob: What the fuck are you saying?! I'm sorry; I don't speak schtick!
  • His definition of Mason's term, "fonzanoon."
    Mason: A fonzanoon is a person who farts in the bathtub and bites the bubbles.
    Snob: [Grinning] That's Yiddish [Smile disappears] for nothing.
  • "He's a straight-up magician!"
  • The "slave auction" in the country club.
    Oh, man; I bet this game is really going to offend the black members of this country club...
  • "And by the way, that is hardly the most painful water slide in existence..." Cue footage of Jake riding the Ass Bleeder.
  • All the jokes about the gratuitous sound effects qualify, but one stands out.
    (A fart sound is heard.)
    Chandler: Your horse has quite a gas problem.
    Jack: It's not the horse.
    Snob: Then clearly you have a problem because you just shit your pants!
    • Also, this:
    (After a scene involving Jack being positioned with cracks and creeks being heard)
    Snob: (laughs) I'm glad they put those sound effects in, otherwise this scene would have sucked! [He then gags with a fart sound, scratches his groin with a squeeze toy sound, and sticks his finger in his ear and scratches with a train sound.]
  • "Hopefully they end the scene with a good joke." They don't.
    Ty: You're not being the ball. Be the ball!
    Jack: Do me a favor; why don't you be the ball? If I wanted to be a piece of sports equipment then I'd be a lady's bicycle seat.
    Snob: [Removes his glasses and rubs his eyes out of exhaustion and rage, before simply looking at the viewer]
  • "And that means the country club remains a shithole. Um, Yay?"
  • The Snob's ridiculous, over the top laughs at some of the film's worst lines.
    (Ackroyd's character is hit in the butt with a crossbow bolt)
    Snob: HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! HAHAHAHAHA (sudden, explosive fury) God DAMN IT!
  • Mason's character performs an extremely overplayed Double Take. Brad's reaction?
    "Shit, he's forgotten to put on his Krusty the Klown make-up."

    Ilsa, The Wicked Warden 
  • The Snob puts his hands in his pants and starts to loosen his shirt... only for a line to make him give up.
    It's like Franco is saying "I dare you to spank to my movie!"
  • Playing a Caddyshack II song in a jukebox scene.

    Ninja Champion 
  • The plugging-in products scene.
    Snob: Achoo! The Cinema Snob: Nudies Rudies and Crudies? What were you doing up my nose and... whoo whoo Hang on a second! (grabs DVD case from pants) Ninja the Mission Force? You're not my penis! What were you doing up my pants?
  • The Call-Back to the sound from American Commando 3: Savage Temptation. It's his boner.
  • At the IFD Films title card:
    Snob: You know, as many times as I seen that opening, I can never get used to it. STAR WARS WAS NOT RELEASED BY COLUMBIA PICTURES!
  • Asian Boxing Champion: (agonized groans) The wine! There must have been something in it!
    Snob: Ah, the classic Blame Erectile Dysfunction on the Wine excuse.
    Rose: Not the wine, my nipples.
    Snob: Well ma'am, there's seriously wrong with your nipples if you can squirt acid out of them!
  • Snob: Feeling a little bored while watching your revenge movie? Well, 20cc of 80s will clear that right up!
  • Radio:The victim, Mr. Ronald Chung, was in a satisfactory condition after the attack, having been stabbed and knocked over by a car. It is thought that the attacker is the same person that attacked the boxing champion in the Charlotte Hotel recently. Now for some music. (music plays)
    Rose: What's all that?
    Snob: Well, if the mood was killed before, it is now! That's like breaking into Barry White to start talking about the Son of Sam!
  • Trans Europe Express plays while a man in denim enters
    Snob: Well I'm glad the movie knows who that guy is, because I sure as hell don't.
  • The Running Gag regarding a very Asian man supposedly named Larry.
  • Snob wonders about Denim Guy:
    Rose's Twin: He's not responsible, he's just a retard.
  • Complaining about how the movie treats the rape-revenge plot the worst way possible.
    Snob: That's like leaving the theater for I Spit on Your Grave and saying to yourself, "Gee, you know what this movie could've used? NINJAS!"
  • Snob: If Larry was the Big Boss in charge of diamond smuggling and gang rape, then Interpol agent Bruce is looking for the Big Big Boss of diamond smuggling.
  • The review was released just after a certain sitcom had ended, as noted when the Snob comments on the film's abrupt ending.
    Snob: At least they didn't condense what could have been a season's worth of rather dramatic and emotional material into its last 10 minutes, leaving it rather cold, glossed-over, and emotionless. Thanks, How I Met Your Mother.

    Black Love 
  • "I'm sure this movie tackles the subject of black love with plenty of dignity and... (credits show "John Q. Black Production") John Q. Black? What the fuck?! Even Truck Turner would say that name's bullshit."
    Snob: I have an easier time believing that Frankenhood director Blaxwell Smart is both black and smart!
  • His summing up of his and others' reviews of Nymphomaniac consists of farting and then waving the hand upwards and smelling the fart with pleasure.
  • Any time the Snob comments on the incredibly bored-sounding, Captain Obvious narrator.
    Narrator: This married man employs a wide varieties of techniques.
    Snob!Narrator: Especially missionary, missionary, and missionary.
    Snob!Narrator: Laugh at my exhibit, why don't you. And I will send you straight to Hell.
    Snob!Narrator: We now witness black people dancing naked. They do it in my dreams, so that means they do it in real life.
  • Snob: The twist of the movie is that chocolate love can also taste very vanilla!
  • Snob: It was nice of them to make a documentary telling aliens what black people are.
  • "If this is Black Love, then this is White Love." Cut to Bat Pussy.
    Buddy: (drunken) And you got some goddamn washtub there!
    Sam: (dazed) My pussy in a washtub?

    Two of a Kind 
  • The Snob gives the film's plot, and then WHAT THE F
  • "This movie is acting like such a thriller that I'm surprised a cat hasn't been thrown into the shot". Cue exactly that. And a scene of Lloyd.
    • Lloyd who proceeds to do nothing but look cute at the camera. Cut back to the Snob, who appears to consider the idea of throwing him, but then remarks "You want to try fucking with Lloyd, 'cause I'm not going to."
  • The fact that the Snob actively appreciates and even likes the chemistry between Travolta and Newton-John, but is consistently perplexed by the need for the bizarre plot of the film hinging on their romance.
    • And to provide contrast, he then plays the clip from Moment By Moment where Travolta and Tomlin look uncomfortable as hell while lying in bed together.
      Snob: "Oh no sis, what did we just dooooooo?"
  • The Snob's fakeout ending, where Travolta's character takes the bullet for Olivia Newton-John, Then immediately cuts to the theme song playing over a black screen that simply says "The End"

    Curse of Bigfoot 
  • Snob's general reaction to the movie, which ranges between boredom ("ZZZZZZZ"), frustration and real anger ("I don't give a FUCK!").
  • The Snob's reaction to the...intense lecturer.
    Lecturer: I wonder, young man, if the ancient griffon was really...invented as you say, by some...demented madman!
    Snob: Okay, this isn't even a slasher film, but I'm calling it: he's the killer!
  • "You know how there are some things in life that are movies? This isn't one of them".

    The Geek 2 
  • The ending sketch, which has Craig playing Undead Nightmare with Sasquatch (voiced by Phelous). Neil comes in and says that Craig has Jumped the Shark. To which Craig said that he has jumped the shark when he got the "50 cameos in the Caligula episode". Neil then shoots Sasquatch.
    • Keep in mind that one of those cameos was from Phelous himself.
  • The part where he speeds up the audio of the girl's moaning, making it sound utterly hilarious.
  • Describing the other three scenes of the movie where the Bigfoot porn is, which feature various levels of Fetish Retardant.
  • Complaints about how the girl is moaning unconvincingly and the actor is having allergic reactions to the costume.
  • "You know what they say: once you go Bigfoot, you go to jail for bestiality."
  • The fake alternate title for Twins: Zombi 42: Two Times the Death.
  • "Pardon the black box, but I have to cover up her filthy mouth!"

    To Catch a Yeti 
  • Snob's comparison of the movie to Nukie sets the tone.
    Snob: If Nukie and To Catch a Yeti fucked, I'm pretty sure they'd bring about the Antichrist.
  • The Douchey McNitpick letter explaining the difference between a Yeti and a Sasquatch.
    • After which, he plays about two seconds of the opening before deciding to skip it and get through the movie as quickly as possible.
      • Which in and of itself is funny since this particular review was the longest one of "Sasquatch Week" (at 27:46 minutes).
  • Snob's comparison of the Yeti creature to a mix between the rat-monkey from Dead Alive and a Furby.
  • The Running Gag of the name the girl gave to the creature: Hank!
  • "Since the character in this movie is named Dave, I'm contractually obligated to hate Dave." (Shows picture of Dave Gobble, of Team Snob) "Sorry, Daves!"
  • The Snob's growing hatred towards the psychopathic Spoiled Brat character Wesley, complete with the former calling the latter Montana Menendez.
  • The Snob making fun of the film's many MANY Contrived Coincidences.
    Snob: What are the odds? Seriously, WHAT ARE THE FUCKING ODDS!?
  • Snob making fun of Meat Loaf's unnecessarily intense performance.
  • Snob's reaction to the low, growly tone of the movie's main theme.
    Snob: It's rare that I hear someone BELCH the movie's theme song!
  • "What sort of fucked-up ratings system passes this off as a PG?...If you show this god damned thing to your kids, be prepared for them to never speak to you again. Why don't you just show 'em something more family-friendly, like Basic Instinct 2?"
  • "And in case you're wondering if Hank is going to wave goodbye to them, that's the last minute of the movie! ... Seriously."
  • "I hope they get lost and start eating each other. I hear ketchup goes great with Meat Loaf."

    Black River Monster 
  • Snob finds an elderly... person... in the movie similar to Fat Grandma. Of course she and Linkara cameo at the end.
    Fat Grandma: ...and that's the story on how Fat Grandma helped out an all girls' horsin' ranch. Saddle up sugar! Next time I'll tell you the story on how I slapped Mussolini 'crossed the face for that business he pulled in Albania.
    Linkara: All I asked you was what time it was. How in the hell did you end up telling me about a 1980 SHOT ON VIDEO MOVIE ABOUT BIGFOOT!?! WHY WOULD I EVER NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THAT!?! THAT'S NOT EVEN WHAT I COVER!!!
    Fat Grandma: Not don't you go puttin' the sass in Sasquatch! That's that filthy mouthed Cinema Snob's job!
    Linkara: YES, IT IS! So why don't you go bother him for a change? Seriously, if I eat another plate of blueberry pancakes, my stomach is gonna open up its own IHOP!
    Fat Grandma: Mmmm, mmm! Now that sounds good! Creamed crêpes, and strawberry flapjacks topped with blueberry syrup and caramelized onions, stuffed with Miracle Whip and pickled relish! You get on that boy, and don't skip on the hot mustard!
    Linkara: Gross!
    Fat Grandma: Quit your talkin' boy. Now lets get to the kitchen and deep fry us some sass!
    Linkara: WHO ARE YOU?!?
    Snob/Craig/Brad mouthing "What. The. Fuck."
    Lewis in the Fat Grandma robe As Himself: This is my legacy to the world.

  • This dialogue:
    Snob: "Of course he had to stop off at a place called Foodland. And just listen to this music."
    (Music plays over scene of main character walking and eating)
    Snob: "That's what a composer does to let any blind audience members know that there's a fat guy onscreen."

  • "In case you didn't know that Leroy is the same actor who played his mom, he left some of his old lady makeup on!"

    The Legend of Boggy Creek 
  • So, apparently Travis Crabtree is a sleeper agent? And the Travis Crabtree song is his trigger? And when he hears it, he's compelled to find the nearest homeless person, who just happens to be the Cinema Bum, and beat him to near-death with a golf club? Whatever...
    Snob: [bemused] Huh... now there's something you don't see every day.
  • "Well, there's your Fouke monster — it's a cow."
  • As the film's monster is glimpsed through an eerie fog...
    Snob: [irritably] Oh, God damn it, it's just Trumpy! — Go away, Trumpy! We can't be friends any more!

    Mommie Dearest 
  • "In honor of every mother's favorite holiday, here's a movie about someone who beats her kid!"
  • [As Joan signs an autograph] "Avoid the clap, Joan Crawford. Wow!"
  • The Running Gag of Snob's Perverse Sexual Lust for Joan.
    • He's both completely turned on by Joan one minute, then terrified the next. Including after one scene where Joan just stares at the screen with a crazy look in her eyes
      Snob: (looks disturbed) ...Marry me?
    • This is best exemplified with this quote.
      Snob: Y'know what? I don't care. Joan Crawford is hot. Faye Dunaway is hot. Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford is fucking hot!
    • After Joan breaks up with her boyfriend and declares that she's single, Snob starts to enthusiastically remove his clothes. Then, when the movie moves on to something else, the next shown of Snob is him sitting naked on his chair dumbfounded.
  • [After Joan forces her way onto the board of directors for Pepsi]
    Snob: Oh, damn, she's crazy! Now we know who to thank for Pepsi Cucumber!
  • [Upon seeing Joan dead in her coffin.]
    Snob: ...I'm about 40% percent sure she's gonna come alive and start eating the souls of children.
  • His utter contempt for the Razzies and the people who vote for them; We might have expected him to run with the 'GARBAGE DAY!!'-esque popularity of the "Nooooooo. Wiiirrreeee! HANGERRRRSSSSSS!" scene, but instead, he hilariously decries the people who turned it into a meme, and shows the scene nearly in full, exposing just how terrifying the scene actually is in-context. Best part: his excited smile turning into a stupefied look of horror.
    Snob: The shit in my pants just shit their pants!
    • He's quite relieved when the scene is over... only to realize that "Oh fuck me, there's more?!" when Crawford then drags Christina into the bathroom to help her scrub the floors.
      Tina: (softly) Jesus Christ...
      Snob: The fuc- right?
  • This is quickly followed by Tina handing Joan a drink while she has company over.
    Snob: (In response to Joan's lingering Death Glare) I've seen Guinea Pig and Salo, and this makes me terrified about what's coming next!

    Godzilla's Revenge 
  • After Godzilla burns Terydactyl and the latter crashes and falls into the water:
  • The Snob's increasing anger at Minilla.
    Snob: I bet the word "retarded" gets insulted when you called it "Minilla".
  • The Snob is on top of his music jokes this episode:
    • As Ichiro tries to climb out of a pit, the Snob plays "Deshi Basara".
    • As stock footage of Godzilla and Ebirah playing tennis with a rock from Ebirah, Horror of the Deep plays, the Snob cues up the boss music from Super Mario Brothers 2.
  • "Wow, they've got all of the monsters here! There's Jurassic Pet, Muzlar, Tokar, and Terry Dactyl!"

    Drive 

    Invasion of the Samurai Sluts From Hell! 
  • "Quite an epic title for a movie that probably should be called Invasion of the Girls Who Shop at a Late-80's Spencer Gifts."
  • The movie has an opening text crawl, and the Snob finds a problem in the first line of it
    Narrator: It was no Occident that they came from the Orient...
    Snob: ACCIDENT!!
  • "Last time I saw a motorboat that big, it ran over Angela's family in Sleepaway Camp."
  • "Ma'am, just get a spork. You're at a Panda Express, no one is gonna judge you."
  • Cute kitty Lloyd is the Snob's Right-Hand Cat this entire episode, and looks incredibly bored during all of it.
  • About Chu N. Ginsberg.
    Snob: Hey, wait a minute. You're not famed director Wong Kar-wai, you're Adolf Hitler! How did I make that mistake!? Turns out, when you combine Mao Zedong and Hitler, I'm not sure what you get, but they prefer to wear heels in bed!
  • The Running Gag in the film, of Tracey Adams Breaking the Fourth Wall to make a snarky comment about the script, is actually kinda funny in itself, but, eventually...
    Bimbo-san: Woooo, you know the ways of my people white man? aside You know, first they had me sounding like Charlie Chan, and now I sound like Cochise!
    Snob: All right, allright! Now you're just Snobing yourself! Stop taking jobs away from pretentious-ass critics who like shouting things from their big comfortable chair!
  • This exchange:
    Snob: And where's the stereotypical gong sound? What, was Chuck Barris not around to bang it?
    Bimbo-San: It is written…
    (gong sounds)
    Bimbo-San: Again with the gong! If Chuck Barris shows up, I'm leaving!
    Snob: Ah ha ha ha! I got the reference in first this time!
  • "I'm not exactly sure who this John T. Bone is, but according to the first picture on Google, it's Elton John! Stick to music, Elton!, I'm sure there's a Disney movie you can score that's just right around the corner, either that or a shitty movie about talking gnomes, regardless, stay out of the porn industry, cause I'll stick with REAL samurai films thank you very much! Films like Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai!" *Beat, then coughs*"

    Friday The 13th Part III-D 
  • 3D episode! And Brad does all he can to throw things at the audience.
  • The representation of "3D" sound is... speaking through a cone, such as his response to viewer questions about whether there will be a 2D version. "Nope! Nope nope nope nope nope!"
  • There's so much 3D Lloyd in the review that his theme music actually gets past the first measure!
    ""Aagh! - snakes on strings?...C'mon...you can come up with a much more adorable animal than that!"

    The Stepfather 
  • When the title character mixes up his identities in front of his wife, the Snob suddenly turns into 80's Dan, leading to Brad having an identity crisis of his own.

    Robot Wars 

    Wired 
  • The Snob's astounded reaction to John Belushi (as portrayed by Michael Chiklis) waking up from death, snarfing down a doughnut on his body bag and burping.
  • This:
    The Blues Brothers: Elvis? And the Colonel?
    Snob: Colonel Sanders? The guy from Hell's Bloody Devils? [cue shot of an actual cameo of Colonel Sanders in that movie]
    [cut to a shot of an Elvis Impersonator eating fried chicken with a Colonel Sanders lookalike]
    Elvis: Live from New York, baby, it's Saturday Night!
    Snob: Whoa! I was joking when I said Colonel Sanders!
  • The Snob's mockery of Belushi's fictional last words: "Breathe for me, Woodward."
  • This exchange:
    Bob Woodward: [looks at picture of Belushi on SNL] Yeah, I remember seeing that on Saturday Night Live.
    Snob: Thanks, genius! What other show would that be from? Fridays!?

    Brazilian Planet of the Apes 
  • The intro comparing The Tramps with The Trammps: "'Disco Inferno' is one of the defining songs of the disco era, but they shouldn't do Star Wars spoofs!"
  • The Gag Sub has many gems, specially references to "Stop the Planet of the Apes, I Want to Get Off!".
  • While trying to find a stupider scene in the Planet of the Apes franchise, the Snob emerges with a scene from Ed.

    The Babe Ruth Story 
  • The continual mockery of how the Dawson Casting makes Ruth look and sound like he's severely mentally-handicapped.
    Snob: That's what this movie wants you to know about Babe Ruth: that he has an IQ like Forrest Gump, and he breathes sandwiches.
  • Snob pointing out how the movie omits Ruth's alcoholism and womanizing, which Snob references back.
    Snob: How weird is it seeing everyone else drinking in The Babe Ruth Story exept for Babe Ruth!

    Unnamed character: [to Ruth] "Look chump, you can always learn something from a woman."
    Snob: And then he went out and got 12 prostitutes.

    Snob: [regarding Ruth's meeting with his soon-to-be wife Claire] This is Babe's soon-to-be wife Claire, which they completely skip over his first marriage to Helen Woodford, which ended due to numerous infidelities. I can't imagine why they left that part out!

    Phil Conrad: [after Ruth retires] "I saw that guy when he broke in, and I saw him when he bowed out."
    Snob: "I also saw him knee-deep in Asian prostitutes, enough to build a second Great Wall of China."
    Conrad: "I saw him come and I saw him go."
    Snob: Yeah, that's what I just said!
  • Snob noting the movie's rather hyporcritical stance about smoking.
    Ruth: "Now kids, I want you all to remember what I said about smoking."
    Snob: [imitating Ruth's actor] "It's only bad for you to smoke before dinner, [shows an ad for Chesterfield cigarettes featuring Ruth's actor William Bendix characterized as Ruth] so whip up a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles and top it off with a pack of Chesterfields."
  • Snob's reaction to a bellboy who overzealously supports Ruth after he's fined for missing a game.
    Snob: Well, you still missed a game without telling anyone, but at least Crispin Glover the bellboy is on your side.
    Bellboy: "That's tellin' him off, Babe! I'm with ya, Babe, I'm with ya! I'm with ya!"
    Snob: And then he blew him.
  • The constant Take Thats to Wired, noting that, for all its faults, The Babe Ruth Story at least liked its subject character.
  • "According to one newspaper, not only did the Yankees win, but Babe Ruth grew the size of a skyscraper and blew the players out of the park! He was later investigated for steroids."
  • Snob's amazement at the fact that the movie somehow decided to spice up the already extraordinary story about Ruth's called shot during the 1932 World Series Ruth by making up a story about him delivering a promise to a Littlest Cancer Patient that he would hit a home run, and not only does Ruth succeed in fulfilling the promise, but also the child is subsequently cured of his cancer.
    Snob: Okay, sure, [Ruth] made the home run, and the Yankees won 7 to 5, but the real story should be that Babe Ruth cured cancer.

    Homer: COME TO HOMERCLES!!!
    Snob (angrily): Damn it, Brett Ratner, why must you keep disappointing me?
  • The Snob's narration.
    Narrator: From the primordial explosion emerged the Fire of Chaos!
    Snob!Narrator It's a very small fire; you may need a magnifying glass to see it, but rest assured it's mighty chaotic!
    • And later:

  • Despite inviting Spoony for a Dr. Insano cameo, it's "Bastard Film Brain" who appears.
  • A certain scene has the dialogue switched with the one for a Godzilla movie, because "it makes as much as sense as the actual one".
  • When the film's climatic fight scene takes place with rotoscoped animation:
    Snob: There sure is a lot of science going on here, and by 'science' I mean 'coloring books'! Why do your own action scene when you can just play the video game adaptation instead?
    *Cuts back to the fight scene, where Minos suddenly, inexplicably turns into a T-Rex*
    Snob: WHAT?!?!
    *Cuts back to the film, where Hercules suddenly, inexplicably turns into King Kong*

  • "I haven’t been this disappointed since the porno spoof of “Beat It” was ninety minutes of a guy jerking off on camera. In fact, I don’t think it was a spoof at all. I think it was just some guy who sent me his whack off video. Why the fuck did I watch that five times?!"

    The Apple 
  • "I talked about how At Long Last Love was unfairly maligned by critics in 1975, but has received a minor bit of reevaluation and appraisal over the years... So with that in mind, let's talk about The Apple, where I'll be saying none of those things."

    Jack: But the next time you take inventory in here, you'll be counting the albums of Jack Morell! Because I am a composer, not a schlepper salesman!
    Snob: And then he went off to build robots.

    Jack: I'm just in it! I didn't invent it, I'm just in it! Hey, Sam!

    The Bloody Video Horror That Made Me Puke On My Aunt Gertrude

    Snob: Ugh, fine. (claps and stomps with a stupid grin on his face)
    Narrator: Every time you see the crowd, you can wave. Oh, up and down, up and down in your chair with Bunny and his friend, come on!
    Snob: (jumps up and down, waving, with the same stupid grin)
    Narrator: Come on, they need encouragement. They have a lot of horns to blow. Come on, let's go "toot toot".

  • "Introducing Johnny Depp? This is years before Alice in Wonderland de-introduced Johnny Depp!"

     Black Rage 
  • The Snob solves the film's problem (a black albino and his obviously-black brother fleeing slavery) as follows: "'Are you white?' 'Yes.' 'Do you own this?' 'Yes.' 'Move along.'"
    • And then being irritated when Sunshine (the albino) actually uses this... to get past a frail woman who presents no threat at all.
  • When seeing the way too similar follow-up to Black Rage by director Chris Robinson: "Does this guy have a fetish of being pursued in swamps by rednecks?"
  • The IMDB reviews. In particular one where the commenter named the film the worst ever, despite giving it 2\10 instead of 1. To the point the closing line is "Still, 2 stars out of 10!"
  • This exchange at the film's abrupt end.
    Snob: But the bigger question is do they find the treasure?
