YMMV / The Cinema Snob Movie

Go To

  • Ensemble Dark Horse: Gene, the Bunny-Ears Lawyer executive played by Noah Antwiler.
    The Cinema Snob: [when reviewing the movie] I'm placing Spoony under arrest for stealing whole scenes out of my movie!
  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment:
    • Neil tells Craig and Gene that friends are perfect actors because they only pretend to like each other. Jake would later sleep with Brad's girlfriend behind Brad's back and show zero remorse for his actions.

    • Nancy tells Craig that although her marriage is unhappy, it's lasted so long she doesn't even think about divorce. Brad and Jillian were married at the time and later divorced.
  • He Really Can Act: Zachary Lavoy as Ted the true killer. The scene where he explains his motivation is delivered believably and is able to make us take him rather seriously. His rage in particular is impressively convincing.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Craig looks at his hair and notes that he's going a little thin. Brad would later go completely bald.
  • Narm Charm:
    • The scene between Craig and Ted as they furiously discuss exploitation movies. Hell, Ted's motivation for committing the murderers. It's a bit ridiculous that they're discussing something like this now in a rather inappropriate time (not to mention why Ted did it to begin with). However, the collective performances of Brad Jones and Zachary Lavoy (in particular Lavoy's impressively convincing rage at the idea of shitty movies like Alvin and the Chipmunks being allowed to stay while his father's movie was practically burned at the stake) actually make the scene work.

    • Admit it, you went: "Hell Yeah" when Vladimir Jackson (who at this point had completely gone in-character as Black Angus) delivered his hammy one liner at the climax.


How well does it match the trope?
