Film: The Lost World: Jurassic Park (1997)
This review contains examples of:
- The Aristocrats: Referenced. The Critic thinks it's odd that a mother took the time to raise her arms and scream when she saw her daughter getting bitten by compy dinosaurs.Critic: Seriously, what woman, especially seeing her daughter get eaten, would take the time to raise her arms in the air and throw them down? You do that while telling a joke! (the clip plays again) The Aristocrats! (Rimshot)
- Call-Back: To the "Yes, man!" newsreel, first used in the Fern Gully 2 review.
- Hypocritical Humor: The Critic saying sarcastically how the film (or at least Harding and Van Owen) keeps talking about how Humans Are the Real Monsters and dinosaurs are not and showing a montage of dinosaur kills from the previous movie to lampshade it. To not mention the Critic being irked about how those two have gotten a lot of people killed and remain Soapbox Sadie Ungrateful Bastards when the hunters decide to help them... and then he tries to shoot them, finding out the hard way that someone (the Critic blames Van Owen) took out the bullets from his gun.
- Review Ironic Echo: The Critic encapsulates what he thinks of this movie by copying Ian Malcolm's "you packaged it and now you're selling it [indiscriminately]!" speech of the first film, complete with pounding of the table. He also uses Malcolm's line "they were selected for extinction" when he talks about how taking the baby T-Rex and bringing it to the team's RV is the very definition of Too Dumb to Live.
- Running Gag: "That's, that's chaos theory."
- To a lesser extent: "Sa-RAH!"
- Running Gagged: When the dinosaur eats a dog, Critic does this to the "Boomer Will Live" gag.Critic: But what about Boomer!?Announcer: BOOMER WILL...(dog house falls out of dinosaur's mouth) We'll...get you another Boomer.
- The Critic also pulls the plug on the "Yes, man!" newsreel gag with a Big "SHUT UP!" and mentioning how annoying it is that it's constantly shown or talked about how Humans Are the Real Monsters for the sake of an easy Green Aesop.
"That's, that's chaos theory."
