I can't believe I never thought about some movies as being a scam before.
It was and still is one of the most popular theories behind Uwe Boll's career.
Really opens your eyes to Hollywood business.
I'm not sure if I want to watch a review that lasts half the length of the movie it's reviewing. I think that goes in the category of common sense rules alongside "don't eat anything bigger than your head" and "never go on vacation with only one pair of pants."

I'm ten minutes in and there hasn't even been a joke yet. Maybe this thing wouldn't be an hour long if they didn't speak at the pace of a stoned teenager in philosophy class.
Just watch the 2nd part. It's worth it.
Yes, you were right, second part is good. 4 imaginary stars.
This is great stuff.
Meh, I don't agree with the premise that it's a scam. People are giving Adam Sandler money to make this. They know where every nickel goes. They expect to make their money back, and if that is because stupid people go watch his movies, more power to them. Going to a movie is not like paying your water bill, you don't have to do it.
Oh wow, it's an video review site that features dudes who actually just calmly and rationally discuss a film, highlighting obvious points that help build to more obscured, but still logical and interesting conclusion. How novel.
Where's the fake rage played up for the sake of comedy? Where's the ceaseless shouting at an incredulous plot point?
You know, I knew something was missing. This is the internet, film critics: get on with it. How do people know theyr're supposed to agree if you're not screaming your points out?
I'm actually digging Red Letter Media's mellow, straightforward breakdowns. It IS refreshing to see. Although there are actually some Channel Awesome reviewers that I enjoy, the constant screaming and "fuck!" streams (especially the Nostalgia Critic, who either needs to tone it down or just quit) are way past their expiration date.

One day the execs will eventually decide that with the purchase of every Adam Sandler movie ticket comes a free trope checklist so the audience can play along in order to make up on lost revenue.
They will be trailblazers and call this new format Cliche Vision.
Coke cups neatly lined up in a row.
A Royal Caribbean ad spot.
Katie Holmes being given permission from her overlord to stand around and do nothing for cult money.
A movie where virtually nothing happens, not even routine cliches, except farts and animal cruelty.
I haven't seen "Jack and Jill," but I'd wager this review is infinitely more entertaining. I'd rather eat myself to death (Se7en style) than watch that piece of shit movie.
