Invoked through her getting out of it. She even said in a blog post that although she, MarzGurl and That Chick With The Goggles were brought in to bring more female fans on the site, women fans were still watching the guys and didn't start seeing her stuff as well until she started doing more unisex-type shows.
She had this to say on Jem: "Little girl nostalgia doesn't penetrate the outside culture quite so much. I don't think we're going to be seeing any Michael Bay threequels starring Megan Fox this year."
She also brings this up in the "Dear Stephenie Meyer" video, a look at the Twilight series with the benefit of hindsight and noting that a lot of the bashing directed at the books and movies is based in this line of thinking.
Elisa's bedroom is filled to the brim with cuddly toys. Nella and Lindsay have acted out scenes from movies with them. And speaking of Lindsay, yes she owns a teddy bear called "Aunt Lois" (which she lampshades).
In-character, Nella plays shamelessly with her My Little Pony toys, while Maven and the Chick have a bit more embarrassment about still owning cuddly things.
Girls' Night Out Episode: Her review of The Little Mermaid could be seen as this due to all the female appearances. The only guy cameoing is Todd in the Shadows and that's to serve the joke of why Chick is a man-hater now.
Go Mad from the Revelation: Lindsay, Nella and Oancitizen's reaction to Freddy Got Fingered.(and according to the commentary, everyone in the collective session to watch the film broke too). It involves screaming, mayonnaise sprays, and sausages - with an added Heroic BSoD in Oan's case.
Grandfather Clause: Her show was around before the usual TGWTG stinger of the Channel Awesome logo and a funny line from the movie. As this would mess with her own usual stinger of an outtake from the review, she doesn't do it.
Gratuitous German: In her X-Men review, she starts speaking in German after Dr. Tease's Truth Serum makes her admit Nightcrawler was the reason she learned the language.
Chick: You gotta feel a little something when you have thoughts of siezing days and carrying banners overtaking your mind and thinking "Hey, was that kid's Doogie Howser's BFF?" Maybe this movie is remembered fondly by some because sometimes you want an incredibly clean fairytale of New York rather than the grimy reality that it was. Sometimes you want ripped, half-dressed, nubile boys who sing and dance and sing with ridiculously adorably awful New York accents. Sometimes you want to believe it can be easy to win the day and that Teddy Roosevelt will drive up at the last minute drunk out of his mind and never really needed Santa Fe after all.
The Chick: Kate and Leopold might be the stupidest, most contrived movie ever written. The massive leaps of logic to get the characters where it wants them to be are wider than a Disney movie doing the exact same thing. But at least the Disney movies have the decency to leave poor maligned science out of the Plot Device equation. The only thing greater than the idiocy of this movie is how much I love it!
In-character, Moulin Rouge! (despite certain scenes that press her Berserk Button). In real life, Lindsay stated that her opinion was similar to Doug's: there are a few really good scenes, but on the whole she hates it.
She knows Animal Planet and youtube videos of animals being cute is a waste of time, but still enjoys them.
Hoist by His Own Petard: Her conclusion to the Song of the South controversy. By treating it as such an (ironically public) embarrassment, Disney dug their own hole and made themselves look worse than they should have.
All over the place in her Grease 2 review. She complains about the movie rewriting the script while shooting, and then does exactly that, she tries to write the Makeover Fairy out of the review like the movie did with Frenchie, and at the end she says that nobody would want to watch something that's exactly the same as its predecessor but with the genders reversed, which is, of course, exactly what the Makeover Fairy subplot is to her first Grease review.
She calls out Disney for shitty puns and ignores Nella saying she likes them, but she's made a fair amount of lame puns herself.
Hilariously done in her and Lupa's review of "Honor & Glory". The man-hating feminist is on Team Edward.
She calls Sarah Michelle Gellar's cameo in She's All That stupid. Cue Oancitizen, Obscurus Lupa, and Todd in the Shadows making cameos for the sole purpose of saying cameos are lame.
Shoving aside Elisa's (and Minion's) attempts at a gay kiss, espousing, "We have standards, goddammit, we'll use our intellect!" — as she's pushing up her bra.
Hypocrisy Nod: "What do you do when your main character is unpleasant, judgmental and mean?"
In "The Top 11 Animated Villainesses", she gives an unabashed Take That! to furries. In the X-Men review when she's on Truth Serum, she has a fangirl meltdown over Nightcrawler. She's also admitted that the Beast has his appeal. And the most damning: her sexual awakening was Batty.
Taken to new heights in "Sleepless In Seattle vs. When Harry Met Sally". When the Chick describes the plot of SIS as Meg Ryan being a stalker, only to correct herself that it's romantic instead, Todd gives that reason for why he hates it. Chick calls him out on his hypocrisy (which he's unaware of) and she's also unaware that the description matches her to a tee as well.
She praises Daria for showing that Trent (the musician) is only attractive in theory as musicians tend to be assholes who lower your standards. ...this should be self-explanatory.
The Chick will always aggressively punish Dan for stealing her beer, conveniently forgetting that she raided dead Nella's fridge for the same thing.
And in Addams Family Values, she shows a clip from the film in which a camp counselor is wearing pigtails, rolling her eyes and scoffing: "Tschh!...What kinda grown-ass woman wears her hair like that anyway!?"...all the while sporting her signature Girlish Pigtails.
Nella: This is seriously killing my Wish Fulfillment boner. Why am I even watching this again? Hugh Jackman: Fresh, creamery butter. Is there anything more comforting? Nella:... I'll be in my bunk.
Impossibly Tacky Clothes: During the Jem review, the Makeover Fairy once again hits everyone (including herself) with an appropriate makeover, resulting in everyone wearing ridiculous Jem-like outfits and facepaint.
Ink-Suit Actor: On the commentary for the "Top Five Least Worst Disney Sequels" while discussing the shitty animation, Lindsay and Todd complain that the Genie looks far too Homer-ish in the Return Of Jafar.
She notes that this is generally a Bad Idea regarding manmade nonhumans, complete with a healthy dose of intentional hypocrisy as she owns a Sex Bot now.
Nostalgia Chick: Don't put your dick in it. I feel like I shouldn't have to state this one, but it seems like some guys will put their peepees in just about anything, so let me spell it out for you, in case you're now confused. Don't put your dick in it. [caption pops up with the ":(" emoticon]
Double Standard: She also notes that characters generally come out fine when the human-made nonhuman is putting their dick in you.
It's Not Supposed to Win Oscars:invokedDefied in a different way to the Critic. While he's all about trusting kids because they're smarter than adults give them credit for, she loathes them and thinks they're stupid, but also trashes the "kid movies don't have to put any effort into them" belief.
I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: Platonic version (and most likely acting out of self-interest as she's their boss). Nella and Elisa started out trying to help the Chick get Todd, but seeing as now they realize it's driving her crazy, Nella goes the What the Hell, Hero? route and Elisa-as-Maven tries to hypnotize her out of it. Neither have worked, but at least they're trying.
"I Want" Song: She complains that the one in Hercules is that he just wants to be famous and that he doesn't actually want to help people.
Jaw Drop: In Pocahontas. "I'd like to thank the racoon for chanelling the audience's reaction."
Jerkass: Danny in Grease. Bleeh, my reputation. What will my bros think?
Dumb comments on the previous video from people thinking that Lindsay really was fat and/or pregnant are addressed in the review of The Man in the Iron Mask when Nella asks "Are you fat? Or have you been sticking pillows up your top again?"
The X-Men review, where Dr. Tease gives her Truth Serum to stop the episode from being "too boring", addressed the complaints that her usual style is not as... animated as her colleagues.
Continuity errors in "The Dark Nella Saga" get big lampshades:
The Chick's outfits don't match between the X-Men review and the exterior segment, because, as she says "I'm going to take a sad walk. I'm gonna change my shirt and take a sad walk."
Since they're filming in a few separate places, she gets out of the fridge after Dark Nella locks her in and wonders why the kitchen looks different.
Nostalgia Chick: But Nella loved that piece of... movie!
Law of Disproportionate Response: Paying for a computer with innocent people's organs? Nothing to worry about. Destroying said computer with a virus? Extremely frustrating but can be forgotten. Drinking another person's beer? BEAT HIM!
Laugh Track: She inserts one into the Grease review after Sandy's comment that Danny respects her.
"Lion King" Lift: The title card for her video on The Lion King (1994) features Chick on Pride Rock, lifting her dog Kali into the air. At the end of the review, she embarrassedly admits to doing that pose in real life, then shows a montage of her and many others lifting their pets into the air.
Loony Fan: She may not be as bad as Douchey, but Lauren in The Last Unicorn is the Chick's biggest fangirl; laughing at everything she says, putting her hair in pigtails and wanting to be her when she grows up. Chick of course loves it.
Losing Horns: Inserts them into the Grease 2 review, after a lame period-as-in-class/period-as-in-menstruation joke.
Lost Episode: She has a frustrating habit of quietly taking down reviews she ended up not liking or were apparently too different from her usual episodes. Rapping About Rape, The Fifth Element, Dune (1984) and most depressingly, the TLC retrospective—poof, gone. Luckily, most of these are floating around YouTube.
The Lost Lenore: In the four episodes after To Boldly Flee, Critic has made cameos twice (once as his Plot Hole self and the other in flashback), appeared in archive footage once, been remembered by Maven in the form of a suddenly appearing baseball-capped skull on her shelf, and was mourned a little by both Chick and Mara Wilson in Matilda. To say his absence (in technical terms) was felt is an understatement.
Love at First Note: "So in the requisite What-I-Want-From-This-Movie Song, aside from being less small, she also expresses a desire for One-True-Love or something, and who should be conveniently listening but her One True Love?"
Love Hurts: Critic has a breakdown over not having the courage to talk to the Chick in the first "Thanks For The Feedback", and the Chick herself is basically losing her mind over her unrequited crush on Todd.
In-Universe. Dreamworks caters to this with all their snark and pop culture references. She adds on to this in the commentary for the "Top Five Least Worst Disney Sequels" by calling pop culture references forced as puns (think "Jessica Shrimpson") the lowest form of humor.
