Holy shit......I saw part of this flick on the Disney Channel.
This was on Disney?!
This movie's nothin'. "Stepmonster" was on the Disney Channel around this time, and that was a movie that was actually about a monstrous stepmother who killed and ate people.
....okay, we need THAT on a future Cinema Snob episode! Man, 90s -era Disney Channel kinda kicked ass from time to time when they weren't showing those stupid Munchie movies.
Fuck me, I remember the previews for Stepmonster, that movie looked fucked up!
Disney used to pretty lenient in what they showed. I remember back in the 1990s they played Funny Farm, sheep testicles bit and all.
I fully support a Stepmonster episode.
The real question is why were you watching the Disney Channel?
Well, believe it or not, there was a time when Disney Channel was worth watching. Prior to the Miley Cyrus infestation, the channel used to have programming that was at least decent or interesting. When they were still a subscription channel, they'd have oddball movies (this, Stepmonster, and others), Adam West Batman, old Disney cartoons, nature documentaries, and shows from the Disney Afternoon. All in all, not a bad station to watch. Then Eisner had to screw it up...
So did I. I stopped watching after about 15 mins. But it could be worst. He could be reviewing Cybermutt.
Actually, I take that back. I actually received this VHS as a present for my birthday one year, and even I found it to be very...odd (considering this was before I knew what "flipping the bird" was). If I can recall, this is the movie where the most memorable thing about it is the kid pissing at every post one the driveway so the dog can follow them to their new home. And while this was happening, the dad (I really hated him when I first watched this) says that he had the bladder the size of a walnut.
Btw, I'm saying this while it's only halfway through the review. This is only my guess, because all the very strange memories of this movie just came rushing back at me all at once.
true that same here, I remember seeing this movie at one point, the main thing I remembered was the prison section, and the peeing on the road trip. I have had reoccurring nightmares of this movie...
I saw this movie several times when I was between 6-8. Three times just as vivid. Video rental, library rental, and another video rental with a friend as I swore by this movie. Haven't seen it since and don't remember much except the two kids flipping each other off (which was racy for me back then). I'll elaborate more after I actually see the review.
It actually didn't seem as bad, even from the review. But I straight up forgot about the whole eating dog meat thing. To that I say, WHAT THE F*CK!
fun fact, if you look closely, you can see that serial killer is among all the people in the hospital scene,
that's like if a nazgul walked into the room at the very end of return of the king and joined in on all the laughing.
Seens surprisingly tame for a Cinema Snob episode. Not that I'm complaining. The ones based on kid's movies tend to be especially funny.
Well, I know one way to counter-song that opening theme.
If it taaaakes forever, I will wait for you. For a thousand summers, I will w-fuck, now I'm sad...oh well, could be worse. Could be Plague Dogs, aka, the 90 minute animated suicide note.
So apparently, this film was Max before Max came to be. The MPAA had some really weird guidelines back then. Also, I think I may have seen a mention of this film on Disney XD once. I could be wrong though.
holly crap i actually had this on vhs as a child
That was an amazing impression of Bob Saget (the America's Funniest Home Videos version of Bob Saget)
I saw this movie in the theater when it came out.
Um...that's all I got.
This is the most awesomely dumb smart animal movie ever.
Why was Brad reviewing this? Shouldn't this have been a Nostalgia Critic episode?
Because Brad can review whatever he wants, has a lot of smart animal movie/series shtick, and has reviewed several WTF Hollywood kids' movies.
Yes, you're right, i miss the exploitation/shitty horror movies though...
This one seemed so mainstream, though. Not obscure. Just felt odd.
I had the children's tie-in book for this movie, and I liked the movie itself, at the time.
Thank you for digging up a piece of my childhood.
Wait so this movie is actually brilliant?
Hi Brad, thank you for the new snob episode. I had a bad time at the walmart today and this is what I need to cheer up. Great episode!
Oh my, Bingo's cell mate is Mike from The Red Green Show and if you know that show then it's not at all uncommon for him to be in jail for thievery =D
I used to watch Red Green but all I remember is the home improvement sketch using nothing but duct tape
True, that's his trademark, but mostly all the sketches & characters were funny. Mike was always up to some shady business, Winston Rothchild had his Sewage & Septic Sucking Services, overly geeky Harold was, well, geeky. So just about everyone had something entertaining to contribute, which isn't easy for a comedy show. There always seems to be characters I don't like or get sick of. But whatever, I hoped that SOMEONE would know what I was talking about, so thank you!
He looked familiar, but I couldn't place him. And now, please bow your heads for the man's prayer.
I can change,
if I have to,
Nice one, Brad, awesome review again, but I think this movie was 2 steps ahead of you after all, maybe the dog was the real writer after all, dun, dun, DUN...
Well I know what I need to add to Bad Movie Night rotation. What in the name of the Wafflemaker was that?
I cannot believe you didn't make a Winter's Tale reference during the TriStar Pictures logo dog/horse joke.
Hard cut to Sarah, "HOOOOOOOORSE!"
I submit the Littlest Hobo for the title of "smartest dog in the world". Allow comedian Colin Sharp to explain: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhbXpima8-M
"I'm not lying, there's an episode where the Littlest Hobo helps out two families. One family is at risk of defaulting on their mortgage. The second family? Facing deportation. By solving these problems, the Littlest Hobo proved that he is a dog that understands subprime mortgages, AND immigration law. I would be impressed if that was a human being."
"If that was an American TV show, they would have this dog on the back of their money by now. But instead, it's Canada, and guess what? Can't even buy every season on DVD."
Okay, when you made the joke about them tattooing a swastika on his ass, given how this movie's gone, I thought that was really going to happen. Also, is that Mike Hammer from the Red Green Show?
So Otho from Beetlejuice is the John Wayne Gacy of Family Dog Pictures? Another reason why I wish his character had been eaten by a Sandworm.
this movie reminds me of the other really weird dog movie from the 90s, Fluke. Y'know that movie where Matthew Modine is reincarnated as a dog with memories of his past life, and is surprisingly dark?
What the fuck early 90's? Hahaha "They're probably gonna tattoo a swastika on his ass" Goddamn it Brad, you should review more shitty kids movies. Anybody out there with some movie suggestions?
The Snob never fails to entertain me. I had a lot of this! I'm surprised though, not every day you get an early 90's movie on this show.
This movie looks actually kind of awesome! I always wanted to know what Lassie crossed with a Horror Movie would look like. Just have to wonder who this is for.
What's with all the obsession with animal videos lately? Tequila and Bonetti, then this, you even have a cartoon about your cats now. I hope Brad isn't some kind of PETA card holder who cries about "animal rights". It's terrible what the SJWs have done to that poor dentist who hunted a lion. Meanwhile if a white male is killed, nobody cares! Where are all the protests when a white man gets attacked? Nowhere, that's where.
Obvious troll is obvious.
The guy who reviews Italian amazon cannibal movies?
I really can't tell if this is satire or serious. I'm leaning towards satire though.
Get your whiney little ass out of here you Social Justice Warrior supporting scum. You're too young to be on the internet.
Holy shit. I watched this movie all the time when I was really young(5-10 yrs?). I think I made my parents rent it from Blockbuster over and over (and they probably loved that). I liked really weird/dumb shit as a child I guess. I loved Zeus & Roxanne too. Go figure. It was one of those movies that made me hate adults cuz my dumb child brain had a hard time processing over the top douchebaggery in film as fiction. XD I honestly can't say I hate it tho its got a weird little place in my heart....on top of a cancerous growth.
Oh great, another fucking smart dog and his boy family mo- OH MY GOD IT'S FUCKING SLEDGE HAMMER!!!
10/10 BEST MOVIE EVER!
Also please tell that after tequila and benelli that you're going to review the sledge hammer series. That would just be fucking awesome beyond words.
I'll plus one that. I used to love that show. I wonder if it's on hulu...
Aw fuck yeah!! In the free section at that!!
Fucking slow internet and its double posting crap
Thank you for that.
Hey brad if you haven't seen "Slow West" Yet I would check it out. It is for sure worth it.
This movie is so bizarre. At first, I thought it was just ridiculously silly. Eventually though, I had to assume it had been made like that intentionally.
I swear the cover to this movie looks really familiar, I think I've seen it but the clips from the review and me searching my memory has done nothing to help me remember a damn thing about it.
Nope, "Geek Maggot Bingo" = "Beach Blanket Bingo" still doesn't make sense to me.
Pfft. A stunt dog performed all of Bingo's tricks.
On the next episode of Brad Tries, Brad tries dog Hot Dogs.
I'll have to track this one down for Suzie Plakson's appearance alone.
So this movie is The Guest of smart dog movies? Hmm...
Is anyone here knowledgable about dogs to tell me what breed Bingo is?
I'm just curious ^^;
Looks like an Australian Shepherd.
Oh wow..I used to own this movie....
Wow, I just remembered I saw this movie as a kid.
i don't know where I could recommend a movie, but "Badi" aka the turkish E.T. seems like a great movie https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z0U-M9W4nKw
He already reviewed it for E.T. week back in 2011.
Wow already blocked by Sony Pictures, well thanks youtubama !
The video is blocked/down. Dam you Sony!!!
...well, a video getting banned didn't take long.
Well there we go first episode I missed. Kinda felt it coming... how about you latest Tequila & Bonnetti review? oh ok good still there
Fuck you, Sony, and your banning of shit.
This is also a reason why I'm gonna miss Blip.
It was automatically detected, you fucking retard.
Now, the content of the video has been blocked by sony pictures, wtf? nobody even remembers the existence of that movie, which obviously must be a piece of crap. Some people are just so bitter they find pleasure in fucking it up for other people.
It was automatically detected, Sony doesn't have a bunch of people sitting around monitoring YouTube.
Video killed by Sony. Damn...
Yup. Video gone.
I'm glad I watched it before that happened.
So...what is the plan?
Sony Pictures can go FUCK itself. Hands down, the most incompetent and shitty major motion picture studio currently in existence. Hasn't release a good live-action film in almost five years, and the studio most likely to make films to cynically rob the audience of its money.
Fuck you for holding Spider-Man hostage and fucking up his film franchise TWICE in a row! Fuck you for force feeding us these shitty Adam Sandler films every year. Fuck you for your complete incompetence in handling YOUR OWN employees' information! Fuck you for your shameless and CONSTANT product placement (not kidding, it's in almost literally every movie)! Fuck you for your censor happy YouTube trigger finger, and the rest of your money grubbing hand!
And most importantly, FUCK you for your complete disregard and blatant disdain for your customers and employees.
The only reason I don't call you "the Konami of film" is that you didn't try to erase Guillermo Del Toro's name from "Hellboy."
Sorry. I meant to say "good mainstream live-action film". Their "indie" stuff is pretty good, but (like all the other studios, honestly) they produce and release them solely as festival and Oscar fodder, instead out of genuine earnestness.
There's this site called Twitter, get the fuck out of here and bitch about it there. You're a waste of space who shouldn't even breathe.
My comments are a little over 140 characters. Plus, you're the one who's wasting all the air, considering you love to hear yourself talk.
Finally somebody just told I Love To Hear Myself Talk! What a goddamn asshole he's been being in most of his comments here. The Internet is in peace knowing that smart and funny people like SamJ are fighting for motherfucking common decency. If I was old enough to buy alcohol(or to get a job for that manner.) I'd buy you a bottle of champagne for you, sir.(For the record I mean what I am saying and not in anyway trolling you SamJ and I hope I'm not creeping you out but your comeback against that douchebag was so funny and good I just had to say good job, man.)
FUCK YOU SONY, AND FUCK YOU YOUTUBE!!!
May as well, since that's probably the only fucking they can get nowadays anyway.
Brad, please, please, please find another host site. Youtube will do you no good and cause only heartache. Again.
Way to go Brad! I just tried to see this a few hours ago when it was blocked, and now I can see this review of an apparently shitty kids movie!
Still say that you should look for a non-Youtube player for your reviews, since there is a reason your show went on much more smoothly than usual.
Who knows, maybe you'd be able to actually host your Grizzly 2 review on the site again.
Brad, do something about these comments, they're turning into cancer.
Wow. If Sony really did that bullshit then fuck them, those not-understanding-fair-use motherfuckers.
I remember this was the movie I stayed at home to watch because I was too scared to watch Nightmare Before Christmas with the rest of my family
Wow I remembered this was shown on the Disney Channel in the early 90s as well. The channel used to be a paid subscription channel, like HBO or Showtime, and would show a lot of premium movies back in the day without commercials. That's where I remember watching Adam West's batman movie for the first time, and the first time I remember hearing about TRON.
Anyways since several commenters here are familiar with the station from that era can you please identify this movie for me?
It involved a group of teenagers who had an arcade in their basement. Their games were all networked together so they could play a persistent game. They followed an in-game character, who I'll call their "avatar" but he had a name in the movie. The guy was depicted in live-action, but his story was strictly a game.
Anyways the plot is that these arcade guys are playing a game where they're trying to get the avatar through some difficult choices. Along the way they had to make specific decisions for him, and then play a game that would correspond to something he had to do, like play Hang-On when the avatar was on a motorcycle.
I never caught the beginning but I remember the ending very well. At the end of the game session, a character they weren't expecting to return shows up at the end of the story and ruins the game's outcome. Defeated, the players file out of the arcade, until one of them runs into upon an older guy, likely a father or stepfather. He offers them a job, and says with the money they earned they could upgrade their equipment. The offer is accepted.
If anyone can identify it, it would really help me out. I've been wanting to find it for years.
I use to watch the shit out of this movie when I was a kid ^^; I also could not speak english very well at the time.
Also, now that I think about it, I remember watching this movie before I watched Air Bud, and then I was very annoyed that Air Bud was nothing like this movie, and yet Air Bud got a ton of sequels and this movie never did.
Oh and I also forgot, fuck you too, YouTube! You ignorant shitheads take anything that falls under Fair Use! What if some people see this review and say "That movie looks hilarious I should totally go BUY it"?!
But you dickwads can't really think with your heads up your own asses! And finally fuck you, YouTube!
Holy shit.. I've actually seen this movie! Sort of unremarkable, given that its a mid-90's family flick, but I remembered nothing about this thing beyond the cover until I started watching this review. I guess the scenes I remember got categorized under other 90's family flicks like Problem Child, Air Bud, or Beethoven. It's amazing how things can come flooding back to you out of nowhere like that. Great review as always Brad!
Nice! If you keep doing these wtf kid movies I hope you check out The Peanut Butter Solution from 1985. One of the most terrifying movies from my childhood. Seriously what the fuck?
Am I literally the only one here who actually saw through the fact that Disney basically stole several of the "ideas" from this shitty movie to make scenes in Bolt? The ending with the burning house and trapped kid in it especially, it's almost a shot-for-shot recreated scene in Bolt (just gender swapped).
3:11- What makes a good family flick about a dog? ...Uh. ...Flashbacks on why you're afraid of fire? WTF?
Nice AFV joke.
Bingo is about as talented as the super-pets in the Krypto the Superdog cartoon series. And yes, I still remember watching that show on Cartoon Network 10 years later.
8:32- You people blame the dog for everything. BTW, it was obvious Goldilocks that destroyed your shit, because she's done with doing that in houses owned by bears.
9:19- At least it's not like the dog rape scene in Man's Best Friend (reviewed by Phelous).
10:48- Or the dog version of Soylent Green.
13:20- Just when I think this movie has gone to the height of its stupidity, it just keeps going up.
14:13- I'm being reminded by the court scene in Ted 2, a movie that's less stupid than this, but that's not saying much.
22:55- Yeah, I was also thinking that same thing half-way through this review.
I never watched this movie when I was a kid, and after watching this, I am forever happy for that.
Some of the older archived videos of 2009 were brought over from the youtube account before thecinemasnob.com was created, so please forgive the lesser video quality of such as some did not transfer well.
