Film: Tom and Jerry: The Movie (1992)

This review contains examples of:

  • Alas, Poor Yorick: Critic does an "Alas, poor Tom and Jerry" speech using a Tom and Jerry DVD.
  • Antiquated Linguistics: Lampshaded during the "Alas, poor Tom and Jerry" speech:
    Critic: My gorge rims at it, whatever the hell that means.
  • Big "SHUT UP!": To Captain Kiddie and Squawks's song.
  • Boom, Headshot!: The Critic shoots Puggsy's, Captain Kiddie's, and Squawks's heads off.

  • Bread, Eggs, Breaded Eggs:
    Critic: It sucks ASS! It sucks BALLS! It sucks ASSBALLS!
  • Bread, Eggs, Milk, Squick: When the third song of the movie is about to start, the Critic shouts " I'll do your taxes, I'll shave your back, I'll prostitute myself for money, just please, not another one!"
  • Camera Abuse: In the deliberately set up spit take (below), a piece of watermelon hits the lens and slowly slides off. This was apparently an accident according to the commentary.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: When Tom and Jerry are rafting down a sewer.
    Critic: Look, it's Tom Sawyer and Huckle Jerry Finn. Heheh... I've been watching this movie too long.
  • Mind Screw: "Ladies and gentlemen, WELCOME TO THE MINDFUCK!"
  • Money, Dear Boy: In-universe.
    Lickboot: We've got to have... moneeeeeyyy.
    Critic: Sounds like the producers of this film.

  • A Rare Sentence:
    Critic: So after they escape the singing cat gang, good God did I just say that?
  • Shoot the Dog: Critic kills Puggsy this way.
  • Shout-Out
    • In response to Tom and Jerry singing about being friends, Critic says that they're "dead" and proceeds to do a parody of the "Alas, Poor Yorick" soliloquy from Hamlet, scored with the theme from Kenneth Branagh's film adaptation.
    • Critic compared Ferdinand's voice to that of Gollum.
  • Sophisticated as Hell: At the end of Critic's dramatic speech, he pauses for a moment before saying "Shitfuckers".
  • Spit Take: Deliberately set up with watermelon and sangria when he hears Tom and Jerry actually talking.


How well does it match the trope?
