This review contains examples of:

  • Call-Back:
    Critic: But the strip show will have to wait, as the club is infiltrated by... M. Bison's twin brother.
    M. Bison: Of COURSE!
    • During the movie, one of the characters speaks with a robotic voice. The Critic then remarks, "One too many Winston cigarettes. The Flintstones lied to me!", after which a clip of Fred Flintstone singing "Winstone tastes good like a... cigarette should!" plays, first used in the "Top 11 Cereal Mascots" video.
  • Filler: The Critic wonders if the producers deliberately added more opening credits just so Pamela could keep dancing.

  • Freudian Slip: Right at the top:
    Critic: Hello, I’m the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don’t booby. I mean, uh... boobies with the... booby boobies with the... booby booby boobies!... Yeah, today’s film is Barb Wire.
  • Pun: In one scene, a guard dog bites a drunk's crotch. To which the Critic replies:
    Critic: Gives new meaning to the term "Fetch the balls." (Rimshot)
  • Running Gag: The Critic laughing giddily when boobs appear on the screen.
  • Shout-Out: When The Critic notices that the plot is a futuristic version of Casablanca:
    Critic: (dubbing over footage of Rick) Of all the film flubs in all of cinema in all the world, she had to rip off mine. Cock-sucking bitch.

How well does it match the trope?
