This week on Best of the Worst, the gang tackles misguided children’s films. Or what they THOUGHT were children’s films anyway.

  • Talt

    Thunderpants! I saw that movie!

  • Bay Jauman

    The one time I don’t check for a new video within 5 minutes of the last time I did and that’s when it gets uploaded.

  • KingChode

    Congrats on finally getting a girlfriend, Mike. She seems to really like you. You should make eye contact with her occasionally, though.

  • thats not his girlfriend, that just plinketts current slave, and plinkett tortures her by forcing her to review shitty movies with these hacks.


  • It’s funny that the DVD copy i have of Thunderpants was bundled with a copy of My Week with Marilyn and The Woman in Black.

    Basically, i get a shitty Rupert Grint film for a good Daniel Radcliffe film and a good Emma Watson film!

  • Kyle

    Guys, you can’t post stuff this late. Now I have to stay up and watch it.

  • Kyle

    Same here, I was thinking about watching the old Half in the Bag Redtails review, then I see this.

  • Dick McChicagoSuburbs

    If I ever get a high paying job when I finish college at 26, I guarantee I’ll donate at least 5k to keep redletter alive.

    Please let me keep vicariously living through you guys.

    By the way I’m half in the bag right now and I think you guys should hold another bar Q&A

  • Bulletproof McBain

    Guys, I know I’m probably gonna be the only one asking for this but you gotta do Street Asylum for Best of the Worst. Wings Hauser, Brion James and G Gordon Liddy in some Sci-fi awesomeness directed by some porn director that later went on to direct Britney Spears videoclips. It’s a great example of how direct to video stuff used to be packed with weird awesome shit that wouldn’t had been made any other way.

  • Nancy Frye

    This episode is worth it for (I’m sorry but I don’t know the lovely redhead’s name yet…gah!) ——-‘s hysterical laughing while trying to read the back of the “Thunderpants” movie box.

  • BLTB

    Jessi with that Million Dollar smile of hers`. Thanks for putting her in this episode.

  • Drevna

    Tell me about it, I am in South Africa and I should have been at work ten minutes ago.

  • Pim Scutney

    Jessi’s uncontrollable laughter at the Thunderpants dvd is right up there with all the Plinkett reviews and the Resident Evil 4 meltdown as one of my favorite RLM moments so far.

  • Skagboy

    Thunderpants? It’s about time! 😀

  • MatthewMelange


  • Eric Joseph Williams

    I remember years ago seeing Paul Giamatti on Letterman or Conan or something and he was taking about weirder films he did earlier in his career, and he Mentioned Thunderpants, I think he said he did it because he thought the concept was soo weird.

  • Skagboy

    lol, I remember Playing Dangerous. The serious tone was so weird.

  • ThunDERPants?

  • Rob Penticoff

    They made a Playing Dangerous 2.

  • RC_cola


  • silversmacks

    ……looks like there is a little hack Mike on the way

  • Ganonmaster

    One of the best episodes to date. Great selection of movies, funny commentary.

  • Joshua Pelfrey

    The movie emerges from the blasted ruin of the toilet, and the movie is unharmed. Next time guns and fire for good measure.

  • jmt

    How does it occur to a sane person to point a camera at Rupert Grint?

  • mimi

    I hope Mike picks up on the hint and learns how to lick carpet a bit better.

  • macDamon

    who’s the fat chick banging to get on your show? (you’re now famous and can do much better)

  • go kill yourself

  • Rude

    That was amazing, yet again, but bring back Wheel of the Worst!

  • Sir Sly Ry

    I thoroughly enjoyed this video. I laughed, Jessy(ie) (???) cracking up was delightful, the movies chosen seemed weird and interesting in their own ways and overall this was just a lot of fun. Thanks guys (and lady)!

  • CrudBudman

    You’re right, Jay. F.A.R.T. the Movies is terrible. 100% absolutely horrendous.

  • RC_cola

    macDamon is sad, lonely man who can’t get a chick to even fart on him.

  • lightning crusher

    OK no bullshit, me and a friend were having a “bad movie night” a month ago and we came across Thunderpants at the local video store! What are the odds RLM would pick this movie for BOTW Ep 7!?! My friend and I concluded with the very same sentiments as Mike, Jay, Jessi, and Rich. They indeed made the best movie anyone could ever make about a kid who couldn’t stop farting.

    ……and Paul Giamatti giving such a straight performance? In a movie about a flatulent fat kid? WTF?

  • TDPfromOz

    Another brilliant

  • Mr Achu

    I saw this movie called Motorama once when I was a kid it looked like Playing Dangerous but it turn out to be I mind fuck .I still feel it fuck with my head

  • I want to buy every one of these motherfuckers a beer. I love this show so much.

  • Nanbo

    You guys should check out the PEanut butter Solution. There is something magically scary and horribly bad about that film…no…seriously.

  • pangtongshu

    You mention Giamatti and Beatty being in Thunderpants…but not Stephen Fry?!

  • pangtongshu

    He also said it was one of the high points of his career

  • arr

    fuck this 90 sec Blip shit!!!!

  • MrAtlaslvr

    Mr. Atlas! At least i CAN read!

  • Larry

    So, I just time-travelled back from the future and I have good news and bad news:

    The Good News

    Feeding Frenzy is hugely popular in the future. There are festivals every year, and the people all gather together and watch it.

    The Bad News

    Feeding Frenzy is only the most successful movie of all time because all other movies were destroyed in the Slug-Holocaust of 2157. Lots of people died, it was just fuckin’ slugs everywhere, and from what I’ve been told – it was pretty gross.

    Also, the Feeding Frenzy festival is used to determine who is chosen as a human sacrifice to the Slug-God, Briznatch. Apparently, he is a douche. So there’s that. Whoever laughs the most gets tied to a rack and covered with marshmallow sauce (it looks like Slug Jizz). Anyway, I’ve seen the ritual and it’s a horrible death.

    So… yeah.. the future is kinda fucked. Don’t go there.

  • Vaughn Fry

    You guys are spoiling us. I did not expect a BotW so soon.

  • Saren Nevac

    Shapeshifter looks awesome….plenty of beer and friends means it will be fun. lol.

    For your next best of worse can we have a killer animal movie as the theme? There was one i had on video years ago about a giant Boar that attacked people. It was awesome. Pity i cant remember its name now.

  • jic1


  • david_snusgrop

    Jessi’s laugh cures AIDS.

  • Mel

    Jessi is so cute in this one 😀

  • YellowGoo

    The fast schedule you guys release these excellent videos is something I can agree with. Even when the days are really dull, sometimes one has to peel a banana, only to find a new Best of the Worst episode from it’s inner center of yellow excellency.

    Thanks RLM.

  • Licktheenvelope

    Jesus this came out quick! Bravo RLM staff. Next stop the wheel? 😀

  • thehoodedclaw

    maybe its an american thing but thunderpants is really well known in the uk. i think most people who are in their late teens/early twenties have seen it or at least heard of it….dont think its quite worthy of best of the worst tbh guys (also i know the guy who played the young version of rupert grints character)

  • shawkrips

    yeah, Australian here — I don’t know that I’ve seen the whole film through, but it was always one of those things that after-school programmes would chuck on the TV in order to shut kids up.

  • Let the girl gooooooooo

    Martial arts movies – PLEASE review King of the Kickboxers, featuring the acting talent of Billy Blanks, inventor of Tae Bo.

  • Vaughn Fry

    It appears RLM listened to the audience and fired the hipsters.

  • Tobidy

    I like you guys, BUT STOP FORCE LAUGHING. It’s unnatural and awkward.

  • Luke

    They should have destroyed ‘Playing Dagerous’ with a gasoline-filled-water-gun and a lighter.

  • Saren Nevac

    YES. Thats it. You sir are awesome.

  • me

    Force Laughing….the lamest of all jedi powers.

  • Plz

    Ok, now get to gamestation 2.0!

  • Ankhwatcher

    Does anyone else think ShapeShifter sounds like The Marvel Universe condensed into one movie?

  • Larry

    I’ll confirm your hypothesis. I’m a born American and I’ve never heard of the movie. As soon as I heard the title, my eyebrows went crooked and I made that confused face where your mouth hangs open.

  • James MacLovin Treanor

    I loved the signed photo of Roberto Picardo!

  • Duckler

    Sexiest episode yet.

  • entitled asshole

    How do you set up adblock to allow this blip bullshit ? I added RLM site to exceptions but the blip still gives me “you are a bad person and babies die because you use adblock on this site” ?

    And no,I am not going to turn adblock completely off every time I want to watch stuff on RLM.Restarting firefox for their annoying bullshit every time I want ot watch RLM videos is a fucking hassle.

    Either somebody explains to me how to add fucking blip to exceptions so they can get their 30 pieces of silver or they can go fuck them selves.Blip I mean,nothing against RLM even if they use this stupid Blip piece of crap.

  • Duckler

    I really dun’no dude. I gave up and just donated some real world money. I wait a lot longer than 90 seconds anyway just letting the whole video load from the Blip servers before I play it. Oh my god! What can I do on the world wide taint-ernet while BotW loads..?! Must. Ask. Jeeves..

  • Emellertid

    Just add an exception in Adblock for this website. No need to restart firefox.
    Tools->Adblock plus->Don’t Use on (roughly, I don’t use English version one)

  • fuck

    true dat

  • Matthias De Oliveira

    Get the Greasemonkey add on for firefox and then get the user script “Red Letter Media HTML5 Video support”. That way you don’t have to watch ads OR wait the 90 seconds for I buy enough of RLM’s crap to not feel guilty about skipping their ads.

  • Not likely, they were probably just busy… they get together with whoever can be there at the time.

  • I hope you guys review M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth on HITB. Looks like such a turd.

  • Alkazor

    I actually remember watching Thunderpants as a kid. Wow.

  • CensorshipSucks

    The moderation on these comments is a bit heavy-handed, to say the least.

    You’re not making the comments better. You’re just making them into more of a circle jerk.

    Let people say their opinions and make their jokes, even if you don’t like them. Presumably that’s the whole point of the up and down arrows to begin with.

  • AdBlocker

    You shouldn’t guilty anyway. People act like watching advertisements is some kind of good deed. It isn’t.

  • AdBlocker

    + feel

  • maddog

    there’s also Playing Dangerous….. 2

  • entitled asshole

    Yes,that’s what I did.Does not work.

    Fuck blip.

  • maddog

    thats just how rich evans laughs.

  • Percy Gryce

    Yes on the bar Q&A. I really wanted to go to the last one, but my parole officer wouldn’t take my tracking bracelet off, um, I mean I missed my flight.

    Oh, that didn’t come out right. That didn’t come out right at all.

  • Percy Gryce

    It’s Jessi. No “y,” no “e.” Well, there’s an “e,” but it’s in the first syllable. No final “e.” Get it straight, man.

  • Percy Gryce

    Goddamn it, will someone email me when they post these things?

  • Matthias De Oliveira

    Except that the way blip works is that RLM gets paid according to how many people watch the ads on the videos. By bypassing the ads I’m causing RLM to make less money. This doesn’t really bother me in most cases but I enjoy RLM’s videos and want them to continue making them, which is why I bought their crap.

  • Dead_Parade

    As someone who saw Thunderpants in the cinema when it cam out in the U.K. I am so happy to see them review it.

  • Dead_Parade

    And a Keira Knightly cameo too.

  • guest

    You’re assuming they were “fired” because they weren’t in one episode? Neither of them were in the wheel of the worst episode, and individually, they haven’t been in several. Mike hasn’t been in a few and Jay wasn’t in one. It’s a rotating line-up.

    Oh and yes, when someone does something that validates your opinion, it must be because they “listened to the audience.”

  • Duckler

    And how’s that therapy going?

  • SegerRos

    I don’t think they give a flying fuck about some of the audience’s shitty whining about the “hipsters” with their ‘>I’m not familiar with these people therefore they suck’ mentality. And wearing glasses with black frames doesn’t make you a hipster.
    Pls go

  • SomeoneElseTookDude

    New RLM, its gonna be a good day

  • SomeoneElseTookDude

    Subscribe to their RSS duder

  • Andrew

    Man…you know what, Jessi is really attractive. Sorry if that makes me a horrible person.

    Also, has anybody ever had super frequent gas? It starts to hurt your intestines so much it becomes really uncomfortable.

  • another horrible person

    Jessi is not just attractive.

    Jessi is smoking hot.

  • set it to not block ads on, not

  • Percy Gryce

    Or send me a telegram.

  • Meester Smeeth

    Miss Jessi! Stop trying to out-annoying-laugh the Rich Evans, you hack!

  • Percy Gryce

    Is that like Columbia House Record and Tape Club? Do I get get 7 CDs for $0.01?

  • Percy Gryce

    Will someone please whiteknight this guy? He’s asking for it.

  • thank good the fat guy with the beard and the bald guy who looks like he has AIDS weren’t there.

  • Meester Smeeth

    Is that like snowballing?

  • Percy Gryce

    Closer to douchebagging.

  • guest

    How the fuck does he look like he has AIDS?

  • Meester Smeeth

    Is that like tea-bagging?

  • Percy Gryce

    You took it a bag too far.

  • Meester Smeeth

    I fucking stewed it.

  • Percy Gryce

    What, are you saying that Jess is a hooker? Or a dollar-store cashier? Or a casino waitress? Those are the only kinds of women Plinkett finds and keeps.

  • IPlayDangerously

    My mom rented Playing Dangerous when I was a kid, based entirely on the VHS cover. It was weird and awkward for the duration. Especially the sister sex scene. I still remember, “Dick hair.”

  • sepiajack

    That was the best Best of the Worst yet

  • sepiajack

    I’m still hoping they do a 6 movie marathon of all the Fast & Furious movies for Half in the Bag like they did for Resident Evil

  • Daniel Bakke

    It’s awkward, but not unnatural. In social situations people often display reflexes of imitating each other’s behavior (body position, facial expressions, laughter). When one person starts laughing, others may join in without any other trigger than the person who first laughed. Same as with yawning.

  • Mike’s mom

    Rich, get a hold of Mike’s private camcorder and leak that sextape of him and Jessi. It’ll be our secret.

  • DarthRandal

    When he threw the movie in the toilet, I thought for sure a lit M-80 was going in after it. The drunk Mike drop was great, though.

  • lightning crusher’s friend

    We also expected bad acting and bad effects, and were disappointed. And we were wondering why Ned Beatty would say yes to this role. And why Rupert Grint’s cover photo did not match his character in the movie (marketing).

  • Joe Bloggs

    Mike and Jessi are supercute when they whisper together :3

  • capitandelespacio

    A decent 2 hour long review of the six movies.

  • capitandelespacio

    There’s a cameo by the Wheel Of The Worst during the last scene. Bring the Wheel back!

  • i think by the end of them watching all of them they would probably give up on life.

  • playdude92 .

    What would be the worst roles to be replaced by kids in movies?

    Daniel Plainview? Jeff Lebowsky? Gandalf? Hannibal Lecter? Maude Lebowsky?

  • Sulfur12

    Rich Evans has its female counterpart in laugh department. Please, more.

  • Bobo

    Mikes plan of making people like Jessi is starting to work… I don’t know what to think.

  • Djorge Moogen

    Thunderpants is a good movie what the fuck is it doing here?

  • Constantine1985

    Oh yeah! This is just what I need to heal my hangover. Thanks, you hacks!

  • don’t be a freetard

    Turon off your Adblock for RLM. You will either get a 30 seconds of ads, or nothing, if Blip has nothing to serve.

  • McLovin

    Why is Jess Nakles dressed like her gran today? Have you guys been sending her out to by you booze using her fake ID again?

  • Andy S

    He has people to help him? Y’know? Aids?

  • KarlBunker

    True fact: Back in the days when you had to use a paper magazine to find out when things were on TV, TV Guide’s standing write-up for the film Razorback was “Arguably the best Australian movie ever made about a giant killer pig.”

    And they were right! It’s actually a pretty good movie.

  • Sauceman

    No more Jessi. Please and thank you.

  • Sauceman

    No it isn’t.

  • Manioc

    I just clicked the AdBlock Plus icon, unchecked the “Enabled for this site” box & then pressed F5 so the change would take effect. Maybe it works differently for Chrome.

  • I’ll Suck for Cake.

    Great episode.. and in case you’re interested. I own a copy of Fart: The Movie and can confirm that it is totally unwatchable..

  • jic1

    Just last week I bought a completely different giant killer boar movie called *Chaw*, so I already had giant killer boar movies on my mind when you asked.

  • white knight

    No more of your comments.Please and thank you.

  • Saucewoman

    You are gay.

    And I don’t mean homosexual.

  • Mike’s dad

    Don’t.I’m using it.

  • what the blip?

    Do you use just adblock without the extra adblock stuff like adblock pop up blocker and element hiding helper for adblock ect. ?

    I’m thinking maybe it’s the extra adblock add ons that fuck the shit up.

  • Jordan

    nothing against her but i think every BoTW episode should just be Jay, Mike, Rich and that bald dude.


    I say a couple of actual tits does not hurt in opposed to metaphorical tits as in “that guy is a real tit”.You can figure out which one.

  • AYDS
  • Harry Palm

    They didn’t know it was a good movie until they watched it. Maybe you should watch the video before you comment.

  • Guest


  • Manioc

    I don’t think I have any extras, but again I have Adblock Plus for Chrome which might include them as standard. I also have the “easy list” and “disable malware” filters set.

  • pulling the chain

    Don’t .You will provoke the wrath of the comic book nerd fanboys.
    Unless you meant it like a compliment.

    The avengers is overrated.
    downvote me.

  • what the blip?

    Maybe it’s just gremlins.

    I use firefox and the extra adblock stuff plus other anti adware stuff…wait…maybe it’s not adblock but other shit like ghostery…hmm…

  • HA HA

    Turon off.Gotta love that engrish.

    I know it’s just a typo.

  • Mike’s dad

    Keira Knightley camel toe?

    inb4 pedobear.

  • UnShame

    So do Mike’s and Rich Evans’. Only Jay’s laugh doesn’t. What a loser.

  • MS

    Jessi is great. Each co-host has an attractive personality and point of view. It’s great that each new episode has a rotating cast. Your post has zero value. If you wish to effect a change give at least one reason.

  • MS

    Your comment does not make grammatical sense. Do you mean to say that Mike Stoklasa has had a plan to grow clones? Is he making papier-mâché stand-ins? Is he metaphorically ‘making’ people by nourishing their careers in the public eye? Or is he changing the general public to act and look like Jessi? Here is a general rule to keep in mind before pressing ‘Post’:

    Think > Type > Proofread > Post

  • MS

    I’m so sorry for you 🙂

    My mom rented Gremlins for myself and my brothers when we were young. The movie was labeled ‘comedy’.

  • guest

    “They should do the exact same thing with the exact same people in every video.”

    Yeah that wouldn’t get old quick.


    Not working on mobile. Says some shit about the video not being ready but that appears to be bullshit. Why is this the only one not working you hacks?!

  • Duckler

    Was the original title of Playing Dangerous “Stewart Saves his Family”?

  • Charon

    This new episode is just excellent. You guys seem to be opening up to your audience. Keep up the great work.

  • Lemon Aidez

    Are you kidding? Gremlins was my favorite movie as a child!
    I was kind of a weird kid, looking back.

  • UnShame

    One thing that is good about the 90 seconds delay before the video starts downloading is that now those fucking care boars don’t show up after every video.

  • Bt

    Yea, I like Jessi. And she does bring her own unique perspective on sexploitation scenes. Her first appearance was not as good, but now she is comfortable on camera and she is making herself heard.

    But I really like the mix they are doing. Keep it up!

  • Dan Hibiki

    Someone needs to make Rich Evans’ laugh the standard laugh track for all sitcoms.

  • Evan Ortiz

    My sister and I have a bad movie night every week. This is the first time a movie we watched has been on Best of the Worst. Shapeshifter is truly one of the biggest shit fests ever made, and I highly recommend it. Thank you Redlettermedia.

  • ReturnofSauceman

    She’s not funny, plain and simple. Her voice is also grating. Need anymore reasons?

  • Midlander

    I also thought of Animorphs when I first saw the Shapeshifter box. If, then, I can think like Rich Evans maybe my life isn’t as rudderless as I thought…

  • ReturnofSauceman

    That’s racist.

  • Sfing

    Rich’s tits don’t do it for you?

  • Name Pickles

    She’s fine, but it’s a little distracting how she seems to be staring at Mike’s chiseled jaw admiringly in every shot she’s in.

    Get Jay and Mike their own groupies too, or at least have them get it on with one another.

  • argh

    I meant Jay and Rich!

  • Casual Observer

    Mike is gonna be a daddy!

  • StillReal

    No ECW chant at the end?
    c’mon man… Mike was pulling a total Sandman there.

  • anonymous viewer

    dear jay, learn to hold the camera steady or use a tripod, your friend, anonymous viewer

  • Now I Get It

    Also, somebody must have been working the camera on that zoom-in, when Mike’s face got glum. …Yes/No?

  • SimonM7

    It won’t play for me. 🙁 Just added to Blip, it says. :O

  • Duckler

    Favorite comment ever!

  • Tony

    Love these BotW episodes. Really enjoyed this one, also wanted to add in with the others that Thunderpants was pretty big in the UK, most people I know watched it or took their kids to see it. Good line up for the episode too love watching you break down these films and so glad you saw Thunderpants for the film it is just an intentionally charming wacky film.

  • Mark Bisone

    As a childist, I reject the notion that 8 year-olds shouldn’t star in violent, gritty action films. Pretending to burn off the face of cyber-terrorist with a Super Soaker is the right of every human being, regardless of so-called “age.”

    For shame, RLM.

  • Percy Gryce

    I don’t know, but the Virgin America commercials have really grown on me–especially the really sweaty stage diver.

  • Percy Gryce

    Mark, you’re always a voice of reason.

  • AghBowling

    You’ve steeped to a new low with that one.

  • Percy Gryce


  • Percy Gryce

    So you love BOTW $9.95’s worth?

  • Don’t like Jessi it ruins the dynamic. Jessi and her friends are thumbing down the negative comments btw.

  • tea

    “Someone likes something I don’t like. IT MUST BE A CONSPIRACY!”

  • Meester Smeeth

    Ha, tea puns! I love ’em!

  • Col. Bat Guano

    May I recommend this flaming turd for you to review, Kevin Sorbo’s Predator knock-off Flesh Wounds–

  • JoeB131

    I noticed that when Mike is really drunk, he sounds more like Review Plinket.

  • Paul Schumann

    the first 6 minutes had me dying laughing. From OD’ing on Rich Evans laughter to Jessi’s reaction to Thunder Pants… best show opener to date!

  • Paul Schumann

    so does that make you the friend of the balding hipster nerds?

  • Paul Schumann

    I thought their groupies are those 2 balding hipster nerds… heh heh

  • Well I was thinking more like craft beer, so it’d probably be a slightly larger tab.

  • Tree

    All I need is a glass harmonica, Jessi’s laughter, and some privacy…

  • SCotty

    Love these!

  • Ralph

    Oh man! Finally! Thunderpants is one of my favorite bad movies!

  • Percy Gryce

    Even Rich Evans was embarassed by Jessi’s laughing.

  • Percy Gryce

    “Show him random clitorises, please”?

  • infernocanuck

    I got bad news for you. There was a reason why he sounded like review Plinkett. It was an act.

  • Bootymarch

    As long as jay and rich are there

  • wut?

    I have a sneaky suspicion Mike wanted it in tacked.

  • wut?

    I got a glass of water and received some traffic info and returned right when the ep began.

  • guest

    Lawrence of Arabia.

    The Alien from the original Alien film would be cool too.

    And Jar-Jar B– oh. Oh yeah, nevermind, go ahead with that one. Replace him with Justin Bieber.

  • guest

    I thought he was going to do a suplex from the top of the ladder on that toilet.

    Way to wuss out on your WWF tropes, hackfrauds! Nobody even got hit with a folding chair.

  • guest

    I’d think, if you wanted to keep it really uncomplicated, you could just have one browser for non adblocking stuff and one for everything else. Like, surf with firefox with an adblocker but use say, chrome or opera or something without. You could even set the home page to redlettermedia to prevent the next post from being just a bunch of bitching about added inconvenience. And then you don’t have to fuck around with adblocker settings every time you come to a site you want to support.

  • Questions will be answered

    Turón: is a Filipino snack made of thinly sliced bananas (preferably saba or Cardaba bananas) and a slice of jackfruit, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper and fried. Other fillings can also be used, including sweet potato, mango, cheddar cheese and coconut.

    In Malabon, the term “turón” instead refers to a fried, lumpia-wrapper-enveloped dessert filled with sweet mung bean, while valencia is used for the banana-filled variety

  • Captain Prickhard

    I truly hope that no one on the RLM team ever reads these comments.

  • John Dietl

    I loved how they used the vcr repair store set as a shelter from the exploding toilet.

    Nice poster for Richard Edlund Vs His Sons. I hadn’t noticed it before this episode.

  • Jordan

    Yea! Half in the Bag should rotate hosts and Jay should be Mr. Plinkett in the next review! That’d be AWESOME!!

  • John Dietl

    Yikes! I just watched Richard Edlund VS His Sons. I think the poster probably took more effort to make than the movie. 😛 Fun movie, though.

    Something else I noticed is that the RLM studio seems to be pretty sophisticated. I guess they are making some money and not just filming in Mike’s kitchen. I’m curious about the economics of a small movie studio like this.

  • Shotgun Ted

    Let’s put this comment in the appropriate, dumbfuck, Reality TV show watchin’ context, shall we?

  • Jordan

    This show gets better every week. Great Job!

    Hmm, weird. Just had a comment–poking gentle fun at Jessi–vanish. First time after years commenting here.

    I guess all those other paranoiacs weren’t crazy after all.

    I hope Jessi and Rich Evans have a kids or splice genes somehow, their kids would have the most evil laugh!

    It’s right down there you dumbass

  • mk741

    Just finished watching Gorilla Interrupted (charming little movie), The Making of Gorilla Interrupted, and the commentary track to Gorilla Interrupted (glad they guys agree that the alien scenes are the best).

    I then check the RYM website absentmindedly. I discover a new Best of the Worst.

    I have to watch the new Best of the Worst.

    I believe I’m addicted to these intermittently productive hack frauds.


  • mk741

    Oh Rich Evans. Bringing up Animorphs (and unleashing a critical hit straight to my childhoods). What would RYM do without you?

    The box art also reminded me of Beast Wars. What a wonderful show that was.

  • Richard Head

    Why would anyone make fun of Jessi, when JAY IS SITTING RIGHT THERE?!?!?

  • bb-15

    From the clips of “Thunderpants” there was a Terry Gillium / Monty Python feel to the film. I will check it out.
    – The episode was a lot of fun with the four trashing the trash movies.
    And keep Jessi in the show. She helps make it work.

  • Crixxxx

    I don’t get these people. They spend 45 minutes complaining about Star Trek, which received 87% positive reviews from other critics, then proceed to sing the praises of a film about a boy with a chronic farting problem.

  • Creepy homeless Asian guy

    I’d go Candid Candid Camera Volume 6 on her, lol.

  • bb-15

    I’m fine with the gang liking “Thunderpants”. But I agree that they were too harsh with “Into Darkness” which worked as an action film.

    : ( still waiting for prometheus to be ripped to shreds, which it really deserves. Hey how about a whole new show about 30-years-later-prequel/sequel-letdowns (tron2, the thing ) and call it “WHAT HAVE YOU EXPECTED, ASSHOLE?”

  • Mads Bolding Fenger Poulsen

    They are just recovering from last time by watching people farting…

  • o.q

    Or maybe start a web series titled “HOW IS LINDELOF RUINING ANOTHER FRANCHISE THIS TIME ?”

  • guest

    One movie was successful at what it was trying to accomplish and one wasn’t. How could that possibly be difficult for someone to understand?

  • iZoe

    Doesn’t feel right without the Wizard and Other Guy….

  • o.q

    So “turon off” means you smear those delicious snacks all over your monitor until you feel sexual satisfaction ?

    That somehow supports RLM?

    Can I just masturbate instead ?

  • AnalogyShark

    It’s different standards though. Thunderpants is being praised because it was not as awful as it sounded like it was going to be. Star Trek was torn down because it was not nearly as good as it could have been.

    Star Trek is a $180 million movie, Thunderpants was $7 million (actually can’t believe they spent $7 million on that movie lol).

    Thunderpants has an original story to tell, and it does it. Mike and Jay really don’t like movies that spend their a lot of their runtime referencing pop culture and their prequels.

    I really liked Star Trek, but I understand most of their complaints with the film. In particular the fact that Khan could have very easily not have been Khan, as he had none of the character’s original traits (the movie would have arguably been better if he WASN’T Khan). Also, that a tribble got shoehorned in there somehow really stuck out to me as stupid fan service even before I saw their review.

  • Crixxxx

    It’s still a movie about farting. Farting. It doesn’t matter if it’s the most successful movie about farting ever made. It’s still about farting. It will never be a good idea to make a film about farting. Ever.

  • Leo The fart

    yeah, right! that new new star trek movie was “great”, wasnt it?

  • Crixxxx

    Are you kidding me? How in the hell is a movie about farting a “good story?”

  • guest

    Are you retarded? They explain it pretty well in the episode. As Mike says, “they took a dumb concept and turned it into something universal.”

    It’s also a totally different type of movie that’s trying to achieve something totally different from Into Darkness. Apples and Oranges.

  • guest

    Your complaints come down to your personal tastes then. Their whole point is that it IS a dumb premise, but it’s turned into an entertaining movie. Again, how difficult is this to understand? The problem is clearly with you.

  • Drevna

    They never said it was a good idea, they said this is the best one can expect (as good as it could be) based on the subject matter. They rightfully pointed out that there is not a better movie in existence based on this subject matter.

    Whether you love or hate the Star Trek movie can you honestly say that the movie is as good as it could possibly be, based on the subject matter. If you think about the Trek universe, do you honestly think that there can not be a better movie than the latest one.

  • The Pandaman

    Are you daft? They discussed Prometheus last year.

  • Leo the fart

    no, i am not. they just didnt rip it apart, like they should have. I felt it deserved a plinkett review.

  • chud

    No, they didn’t rip it apart like YOU WANTED THEM TO. There’s a difference.

  • Crixxxx

    Hello – all film criticism is based on personal taste. If we establish that the film has a dumb premise from the start, the film is still going to be dumb, regardless of how successful it is in portraying the stupidity -and therefore, not worthy of praise on any level. Bodily function humor is as cheap and dumb as it gets as a form of comedy. And only equally dumb people are entertained by it.

  • jsmith0552

    What makes you think critics have any knowledge on which to critique a Star Trek movie? Roger Ebert was one of the few critiques that actually liked Sf and sci-fi and took the genre serious enough to legitimately critique it. Most critiques have no respect for genre films.

  • Leo the fart

    aw, comon. this movie was the worst idea somebody ever had. it fucked up on so many levels that it still gives me a headache.please dont make me point out everything i hate about it, cause i m bad at typing and my english is not that good either

  • Crixxxx

    i’m retarded? Says the person defending the merits if a movie about farting. OK. So an admittedly dumb movie has a “good story”. Yeah that makes sense.

  • guest

    Yes, personal taste. The problem is that you’re fundamentally confused why RLM doesn’t conform to YOUR personal taste. You are an idiot and you should stop trying to back up your arguments with increasingly stupid responses.

  • The Pandaman

    That’s made me curious as well. Some HitB episodes actually seem to pivot around them changing locations and I think their newest one is some sort of warehouse. It sounds expensive, but they’re making good use of the space pumping out various episodes of this and that.

    I’m thinking funding comes from the form of actually ripping someone off like Mr. Plinkett or sweet, sweet internet money. Whatever they’re doing seems to be working so good on them.

  • super butt

    Not necessarily. Things like cinematography, acting, script, special effects, direction are all relatively quantifiable attributes of a film. That’s not to say anyone is wrong for personally liking a film that is deficient in any of those categories, nor is anyone wrong for personally disliking a film that exemplifies all of those categories.

    “So an admittedly dumb movie has a “good story”.”

    A lot of us feel this way about Star Trek into Darkness.

    You were entertained by it.

    I found it to be meh for the most part and occasionally annoying.But definitely highly forgetable.

    Don’t be prejudiced about the subject of farting.some would say it’s in the same category as the new Star Trek.Just a lot of wind.

  • Vasquarde

    10 Reasons why Prometheus is stupid:

    1. Too Many Holograms. Why is it when anyone makes a sci-fi prequel, we see way more holograms than are really necessary? Star Trek, Star Wars, Caprica (BSG Prequel), and probably alot more I’m not thinking of at the moment. Just because you didn’t have the technology to do something before, doesn’t mean you HAVE to do it.

    2. The android dude. In every alien movie, the android is alway siding with Waylan company, and then has a touching moment with the crew after his betrayal. Was this a big plot twist for this movie then? No, it wasn’t. Be more original guys, seriously.

    3. The black goo stuff from the “proto eggs”. What the heck was that? It didn’t need to be in the plot. It was like the alien eggs by themselves was too boring, so we need a subplot within the subplot within the plot.

    4. The Engineers. It would have been nice if they didn’t show as much of them as they did. Maybe like a few frames, or something. And the “brain re-animation” thing with that head, stupid as fuck. Even for most sci-fi fans (such as I). I let myself be fed techno-babble from star trek, and I eat it up. But there’s a difference between somewhat believable techno- babble and stupid paid actors trying to phone it in.

    5. The ship seems to lack a decontamination room (or de-con method of some sorts). For an early earth inter-galactic starship to not have one of these, makes no sense. Would have solved alot of problems too, as in detecting. (continued on next reply)

  • Vasquarde

    6. Sex implications for the overly out of place pretty captain. In every other scene she’s cold as ice and basically has no emotions (is she an android too?). So why did we need to know she had sex with the black guy? To make us remember that she’s still human I guess. Pointless plot point.

    7. How do you not get the fuck off that planet after seeing your two dead hired mercenaries with horrible acid burned faces? I’m sure it was an un-related incident, but if I was the captain, I would have pulled the plug the instant they got back. But no, stupid plot leaves the stupid people so they can die in stupid ways.

    8. That fucking stupid rolling spaceship scene. Okay guys, its rolling in one direction and we’re about 50 feet ahead of it, we could just veer off and safely get away from it. But no… no. I was imagining that benny hill song during this scene.

    9. Weird alien thing right at the end of the movie. It barely even looked like the aliens we know and love/fear. It was some CGI abomination that looked horrible. I suppose you could say these were early aliens, young in their evolution. But I call bullshit. Watch AVP (as stupid as that movie was too), and you’ll see that ain’t the case.

    10. The fact that Prometheus exists, and the fact that another will too. Not to mention that the name of the movie was named after the god damn ship. Why? Maybe cause the producers knew this movie was crap, and they needed to call it something else other than Crap: The Movie.

    Only redeeming factor of this movie is that the Prometheus ship looked cool. And the android in the star map scene was cool too. Thats all I can think of.

  • Meester Smeeth

    I haven’t actually seen Star Trek 2 yet but I had the same feeling towards Prometheus.
    As a fan of the Alien series in general, I noticed so much on-the-nose attempted fan service, references and such, it was ridiculous.
    These kinds of references are closer to in-jokes than anything else and they aren’t funny in the slightest.
    Are there fans out there of any particular movie series waiting for the next, perhaps long-awaited, installment of the franchise just to see a near constant stream of visual nods and gags to what came before?
    The only thing I can think of, personally, is Edgar Wright’s The World’s End and that’s a completely different kettle of fish.

  • Meester Smeeth

    It’s not just a dumb film about farting, it’s a rather sweet film about friendship. And farting.

  • Leo the fart

    it does, thank you. but none of that bothers me as much as these 2: 1) in the novel “ALIEN” (by Alan. D Foster), that came out in 1979 with the movie, Ashs speech after he got decapitated went much further than telling the rest of the crew that they cant kill the “perfect organism”. He told them that the company discyphered the whole alien signal, (The spacejockey or whatever they call it now wasnt even there – dallas, lambert and kane only find the transmitter) what it said had absolutely nothing to do what prometheus tries to makes us believe. 2) before it came out i thougt what everybody else did: “ridley scott directs it? oh great, they re going back to dark and creepy!” but they went to mindblowing stupid (bong in the helmet), spending like 200 million to bore the shit outta you

    I get a Lex Luthor vibe from that other guy tho. I don’t know about him. I would suspect he would be capable of at least mediocre-level super-villainy. Like with computers or something. He looks like he could invent an airborne STD and unleash it on Manhatten. That’s all I’m saying.

    Probably a good guy, tho.

  • dennett316

    The movie isn’t just about farting you dolt….it has underlying themes that the gang touched on. Any movie can sound dumb if you boil it down enough, but execution and story is everything. The film isn’t just 90 minutes of a little kid farting, there’s more to it than that. Your argument is massively simplistic, you come off like you’re just sticking your fingers in your ears and ignoring valid points because you have it stuck in your head that the film is just about farting.

    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Some kid tours a factory, how boring does that sound?
    Stuart Little – A couple adopt a mouse….what???
    Wall E – A little robot picks up garbage.
    Up – An old guy ties balloons to his house.
    Back to the Future – Time travel. Doesn’t get more ridiculous and stupid than that.

    You see the problem with your argument yet?

    You are correct.

    You don’t get it.

    denial is strong that way. You are emotionally invested in your decision to like Star Drek 2. And now you are gonna cry about it any chance you can.

    Don’t deny that. It’s exactly what you just did here. A normal well adjusted person who doesn’t care what others think wouldn’t give a second thought to some reviewers who disagree with them.

    people in denial and emotionally invested into liking some crap that is nothing but pandering fan service.. they are the ones who would lash out at others for not liking it. It challenges your view. And your ego doesn’t handle that well.

    No, Prometheus is also complete and utter garbage. Fanservice and references galore, and a clear re-write of a much better script that made more sense, by idiots who wanted to put their stamp of uniqueness and individuality on it.

    The same people who like Prometheus like Into Darkness? Not shocked at all. These are the target demographic. Fanboys who suck up pandering and fan service and fan wanking right in their face. They don’t care, because it’s cool and OOOOHHH SHINY.

    this episode felt like one of those times when you and your buddies are going to the clubs, but someone brings their girlfriend along with them, making the night as uncomfortable and awkward as possible for everyone else…… yeah, That’s how having Jessi feels like to me.
    Just awkward.

  • Homer

    Whenever Jessi is on the show, it doesn’t feel as good. She is not funny first of all, and everyone has to watch what they say…. just awkward

  • LibertyR

    I thumbed down your comment and I don’t know Jessi. However, if thumbing down your comment would allow me to meet her since all her friends don’t like you, please post another comment so I can proceed to thumb down your comment again. Thank you.

  • guest

    I don’t get that vibe at all. I like Jessi. Lots of other folks like Jessi. Perhaps you should just stop watching this show if you have such a problem with it.

  • Homer

    They like her physically,
    nothing more obvious than having a pretty girl on it and have guys loving her because of her looks.
    She barely says anything, she doesn’t say any good jokes, she is just “There”
    I don’t want to stop watching because the other two guys that do these videos are a million times better than Jessi. The guy with the beard is hilarious.
    But, the pretty girl gets them more views so… yeah, she is probably here to stay.

  • chud

    Please point out one instance where it feels like anybody is holding anything back around her. They’re cracking masturbation jokes, swearing and drinking, Jessi cracks jokes about feminists in the previous episode she was on, etc.

    It almost sounds like you’re projecting your own insecurities about women onto this group of people that are all obviously friends that get along.

  • Brandon Medders


  • Homer

    nope. Just sounds like you like the way she looks and you are defending her.
    You might be right, they are not holding back, I will admit I was wrong on that seeing the way you put it.
    But she is still boring and adds nothing to the group. The other two guys that do the show add much more and they are so much MUCH more funny. If Jessi is eye candy they should have at least 5 people doing the videos. 4 guys and Jessi looking pretty in the corner

  • Homer

    she adds nothing besides being “cute” to these videos. which is what everyone keeps saying about her. How cute she is.

  • ron

    Okay, you’ve made your point. It’s stupid, but you’ve made it. Let’s all move on now.

    The movie’s not “about farting.” It’s about the ugly duckling, not fitting in, overcoming adversity, and eventually triumphing.

    You might want to watch this:

  • VashTheStampede

    I like Jessie. She doesn’t have to be “super funny” because the other guys have that covered, but she adds her own subtle vibe. Of course her looks help because this is a video, afterall, but you can’t just throw in any good looking chick.

  • Homer

    yeah, tell me how beautiful and cute she is. tell me. tell me how you love her

  • Homer

    that is okay, But I personally find the other two guys a lot more funnier. The shows with all 4 guys are hilarious. Specially the dude with the beard ( I don’t know his name) They make better shows when it’s the guys. Jessi might be cute and everything but nothing she said was interesting or funny.

    the Best of the worst videos are awesome when Jessie is not in them. She is not interesting to me. I do not care how “Hot” “Cute” and “Beautiful she is, so I see the videos for what they are,
    And she doesn’t make good comments. The other two guys are much better.
    Like I Said, I don’t post on here, like Ever. but today the “cute” comments bothered me because all guys see in Jessie is boobs and a face.

  • Homer’s Uncle

    I think she is bland enough that you can ignore her if the concept bothers you that much.

    today yes. Specially since the last “Best of the Worst” was so funny,
    Coming from that one to this, the guys were pretty funny, but my first comment was exactly how I felt. It felt like when my friend would bring his girlfriend along for going out at night to clubs. She would just be “there” we would joke around each other but it wasn’t the same with her being there.

  • VashTheStampede

    what about her reaction to the Thunderpants dvd? or does that go into the “cute” section as well?

  • dan

    Her laugh is lower than Rich Evans’, whoa.

  • dan

    who gives a shit? Its Redlettermedia talking about shitty films for their and our amusement, its not the fucking Sopranos.

  • Leo

    I had no idea that they made a Johnny Fartpants movie!

  • Shane

    If you check out the IMDB page for the director of Playing Dangerous, it’s almost all softcore porn. Playing Dangerous….and the sequel….and the only non-porn movies he ever made.

  • super butt

    I fucking hate that beard man.

  • Meester Smeeth

    I’d put it in the “forced” section.

  • Richard Head

    Beard-Faced Glasses Guy is a way better name than Josh Davis. He should change it.

    Upvote if you agree!

  • Percy Gryce

    But isn’t that flaw offset by the heavily tattooed lead singer who doesn’t actually sing but just awkwardly dances on the stage?

  • Meester Smeeth

    Oh come on, give her a break. She’s pretty. If she was ugly you could say whatever you like but she’s not, so show some god damn respect god nibblets!

  • Geahk Burchill

    I regard that as part of a good video. Baseline. Everything else detracts.

  • Richard Head

    You mean, he’s The actual Wizard? Like from the movie/nintendo commercial The Wizard? Wow, he did not age well.

  • Eman

    No it does not.

  • Eman

    You sound like a latent homosexual.


    He can’t masturbate when she is around.



  • Geahk Burchill

    It may be true she hasn’t fully made a space for herself yet in these videos but she certainly DOES add more than just “cute”. For one thing, she says things out of the blue which Rich and Jay have busted a gut laughing at in both videos she’s been in. Her comic timing may not be as developed yet but it’s clearly there. She has an infectious laugh which is great. Rich no longer stands out as being the only belly laugh-er in the group. Her like or dislike is very palpable and honest.

    Beyond all that, four is a great group number. You have the four humors. She’s the Michelangelo of their Turtle Team.

  • DarthRandal

    Would you accept a red van instead?

  • DarthRandal

    They watch what they say when she’s around? I thought Mike shushed her on the Wheel of the Worst episode and then went on to describe how old men can still masturbate to Candid Camera Vol. 6.

    Not trying to start shit – I just don’t see your point on that part in particular. Personally, I really don’t care who’s in the episode, I just want to see them soldier on through the worst shit committed to tape.

  • DarthRandal

    I think Jay sporadically responds in the HitB threads if someone makes a really good point, but as far as reading through all of it, probably not. They got shit to do, ya know.

  • DarthRandal

    Hey man, be cool about fire safety.

    I think he meant have her order a pizza for him.

  • Richard Head

    I think you guys should go full-on Round Table. No more of this Square Table bullshit. You can fit everyone at the table this way instead of rotating. I like Jessi as a co-star, but if you’re not going to do the round table thing, she is going to have to fight one of the other guys to the death. It’s only fair.

    Spock vs Kirk style (with The Things).

    I think everyone can get behind this idea — because we don’t see enough fighting to the death (with The Things) on tv or the internet. You could fill this hole in the market. Just think about it, okay?

    Jessi would probably take down Lex Luthor and Jay no problem. She might have a problem with Beard-Faced Glasses Guy, tho.

    (Jessi, hit him in the face with The Thing — that’s my advice)

  • Sulfur12

    Well, to be honest… I’m not convinced, you know…

  • Now I Get It

    Ah, “post.” So, there was someone working after all, not there, but one device removed. As to who that person was, see end credits. …Yes? Surely yes.

  • b

    No,Jay has been around since the beginning.

  • twerp

    She is SOOOOO beautiful and cute.I love her SOOOOOOOO much.

    Did you cum ? Need a cigarette ?

    Or do you need me to pull your hair and call you Susan ?

  • Richard Head

    Also, Rich freaks me out when his hair is combed. It makes him look like he’s an alien who is trying to infiltrate human society, but isn’t exactly doing it right.

    I mean that in the nicest way possible.

  • frumpkis

    Sausage lover eh ?

  • Now I Get It

    “Hysterical delight” for me, but curious, something you’ve to know the girl to get. I mean, I have not seen such a profound reaction from a woman to that class of joke, since Miss Sarah Silverman. Clearly Rich was not guessing when he chose that flick.

  • rapgamerogercorman

    I’d fuck the shit out of Jessi real talk

  • kittens

    Hey, first time poster here.

    The only reason I dislike episodes with Jessi is the comments afterwards. Jessi is cute and all but can you guys comment on the movies from the clip? So like a third of you just prefer the other guys to her, another third are hateful twats who can’t be happy for someone else, and think everyone should be miserable because they are miserable themselves. The final third (which is the worst) is people who feel that it’s important to tell the world how they are cool in real life and how they have girlfriends and, that’s why Jessi doesn’t bother them at all and because they’re just so cool. So cool that they need to start new 500 thousand fucking posts long threads and drag them to fucking forever, because apparently that’s what you do if you are cool and have many girlfriends. Can we please leave the discussion at that?

    So, my point is, I actually like Jessi as a contributor but half of the fun about this series is reading the comments because of all the interesting trivia and bizarre stories about the films, that pop up.

    Thank you.

  • FuckBot 5000

    Yeah, and I always enjoyed that part of the show sooooo much.

  • Richard Head

    Those guys just don’t know what they’re talking about. Jessi’s “Oh no she got her period” reaction during that Xtro screening is proof enough that she belongs there.

    And as far as I’m concerned, everyone who disagrees with the above statement is just another faceless mouth at the gloryhole — and therefore, you know what to do.

  • Shotgun Ted

    I guess there’s no delicate way to ask this, but what’s with all the retarded faggots hanging around here lately? Did some bigwig in the retard rackets post a link to RLM on his twitter feed?

    Also, what is a twitter feed?

    Thank you.

  • Sully

    [Not so] Interesting sidebar. The bully from Thunderpants, played by Josh Herdman was also in Harry Potter.

  • Matt DeCostanza

    Would you shut the fuck up about how qualified Jessi is or is not, she’s on the fucking show and she doesn’t need to prove herself to any of you people. Did Rich prove himself? No. Okay bye

  • Matt DeCostanza

    Haha Rich starts yammering about peanut butter and chocolate for no good reason

  • Richard Head

    You’re a fucking idiot. I said she was good and she contributes just as much as the others.

  • comment about comment

    So you posted a comment to comment about people not commenting about movies the RLM gang is commenting about ?

    What makes you so special that you can be off topic while others can’t ?

  • a fellow idiot

  • Richard Head

  • Sage

    It’s a reference to an old reese’s peanut butter cups commercial, and it’s in perfect context.

  • Sage

    Wow you guys both look really stupid, even if you were trying to be sarcastic. From the outside, this shit’s just embarrassing.

    This episode is completely worth watching for the awkward love triangle subplot.

    Please, oh please oh please, do a review of After Earth. I don’t want to see it, but I want to see you see it. Please Mike and Jay? I’m asking nicely…

  • Homer

    no, Not a sausage lover. I just do not think Jessie is good looking. When I look at these videos I do it for their commentaries, not to stare at Jessie’s boobs. I can look at porn if I wanted to.

    By the way, that doesn’t offend me at all. What offends me is people liking these videos because there is a girl in them

  • Homer

    It’s like, Do you guys think that Jessie is going to hook up with you for defending her online or something? that she thinks about you guys?

  • Percy Gryce

    You’re right. Those guys work hard. Reminds me of that time-lapse video of their taking down a set or moving to a new studio or whatever it was. I thought, wow, that’s a lot of work.

    Jessie is the MOST beautiful Woman I have ever seen. She is like a Michelangelo Sculpture come to life! She is the light of my eyes. If I could I would ask her to marry me because I love her so much!
    her laugh is like the song of a thousand mermaids that makes me melt. She is a muse, she is a goddess.
    These videos used to be awful and Disgusting until Jessie came to them, now they are the most amazing videos ever! this is the hottest and most amazing website on the planet.

    I really enjoyed this episode. Best one of the series so far. The mood and atmosphere among the participants was really entertaining. I liked seeing Jessi more relaxed and confident as a true member of the RLM group. She’s been accepted now, we like her – even though we reserve the right to use “Yoko Ono” as a joke, she’s all good. More Best of the Worst please!

  • Cognitive Schizo

    To preoccupy the mind of excessively. I never used the word “loser” . You have implied that onto yourself.

  • Alex Humphrey

    Seriously, though. Where can I watch ThunderPants?

  • Sfing

    Homer, you think the fat neckbeard manchild called the Wizard is funny, so your opinion of humor is automatically null and void. Never post again.

    Frankly nobody on RLM is funny except for Mike, who seems to have actual comedic timing and understand humor. Jay is there because he is the other half, the rest are not funny, including Rich Evans, who just has a funny laugh (which has been overdone due to these comment tards loving it so much).

    I actually do think this.

    Congratulations, Homer! You have now made way, waaaay more posts ABOUT people making posts about Jessi’s looks than there are actual posts about her looks. I don’t even know what bizarro world comments section you’re reading where there’s an overabundance of them. You are far more pathetic than anyone you’re trying to condone here. I suggest packing it in before you embarrass yourself further.

  • aaron johnson

    I love how he doesn’t look like that in the movie. It sort of reminds me of the covers to mazes and monsters. Put the famous person on the cover years later and make money from a movie no one wants to watch. Although in this case thunderpants was actually a nice movie.

  • aaron johnson

    Wow, this lady laughs her ass off at a movie called Thunderpants and it’s still not enough to consider her a nice enough addition? This is like the opposite of the nostalgia critics website where everyone was like. Licking every female that came in from top to bottom. That was digusting and dissapointing on several different levels.

    Jessi is nice I reckon she could be easily overlooked in the wake of Rich always being funny and surprisingly clever. And Mike who is apparantly strong enough to pick up a whole toliet and chuck it over the top of a ladder. That was scary he’s much stronger than he looks.

  • aaron johnson

    Huh. He is doing well for himself, good for him! Let him know someone reviewed shapeshifter on the internet. Please.

  • harumph

    Mike is wearing a blue watermelon for pants.

  • Geahk Burchill

    Please explain! You’ve got me interested. (I took French in High School but remember almost none)

  • Geahk Burchill

    Here’s the thing about Jessi getting all these negative comments. Because RLM makes a LOT of dark jokes regarding rape and dead hookers and generally satirizing political correctness through ‘apparently misogynistic’ humor, there is a small segment of their fan base that doesn’t get the joke and are actual misogynists. It is the inevitable result of good satire that it attracts cranks. Even Johnathan Swift had some earnest supporters.

    That means some (Again, I think a small percentage) of their fans dislike Jessi simply because she is a woman.

    I also think that none of our comments matter. RLM does what they want to do which is why they are so great. Haters can hate, fans can fawn, RLM will keep making the great videos they make for their own entertainment and artistic expression. I’m just happy they do what they do and enjoy every new progression and evolution of their material.

    Also apparently people don’t like Jessi? Why? Did she say something offensive? She seems fine, especially if she laughs that hard at the mere concept of Thunderpants.

  • Chris Pendlebury

    Whenever a girl pops up in their videos the majority of comments are about her. Have a look at Whats Your Number half in the bag for a different girl who also met lots of negativity. You are correct in what you say, a small percentage of RLM fans are utter freaks, but as with many things in life, the freakish fringe tend to have the loudest voices.
    I kinda hope RLM don’t read the comments, because I believe this is intelligent material and the garbage we see below is unbecomming of us.

  • it’s a thing

    It appears as if there are some kids commenting here who still have not mastered the skill of interacting with females in any other context besides sexual.They don’t know how to just hang out with girls or a mixed company without feeling awkward and seeing Jessi participating in these videos makes them confused so they get angry and post adolescent comments.

  • garbage

    They do read the comments and often include “insider jokes” about them in their little story lines.

    I didn’t say commenting didn’t matter to us. I certainly enjoy the conversation. I just don’t think comments matter to the RLM team. They do what they do and we get to enjoy it and comment on it but let’s not get it in our heads we have any influence on what they will produce.

  • Geahk Burchill

    We each have the power to raise the level of conversation. You sir, did that. At the same time, the crank brigade provides for interesting sociological study in and of itself. I am not easily offended but I am easily amused.

    At first I just posted about how Jessie annoyed me, when everyone started calling me a faggot and stuff because of it, I just started joking.

    I was being ironic.

  • Homer

    I was being sarcastic. I mean, everyone started calling me names and saying I Was such a faggot or whatever.

    Yep, she’s a keeper alright. Most chicks would roll their eyes and look at you like you were a cretin if you suggested watching a movie like that.

  • Tommy

    there is a playing dangerous 2

  • G. Jardoness

    I disagree with Jay, “Playing Dangerous” ‘isn’t shameless enough’. The makers should do an NC-17 sequel, like a cross between ‘Children of the Corn”, “The Hills Have Eyes”, “I Spit on Your Grave” or “The Evil Dead”, entirely with blood-thirsty, homicidal-maniac children as antagonists.

    As for “Shapeshifter”, sounds like a perfect addition to the ‘midnight movie’ circuit, where being absolutely wasted is the only way to make sense of it, (I mean, appreciate its cinematic mastery)… Just add Rich’s laughter to the soundtrack… ‘pass the glass harmonica… and give me some privacy’ 😉

    Poor Jessie, I had a dream she needed to run to ‘Wayland’s Surgical Pod’ after what “Thhhhhhunderpants” did to her… C’mon, it’s not like ‘Ron Weasley’ was gonna have much of a career after ‘Harry Potter: ect, ect” anyway.

    You guys had never heard of Thunderpants???
    Maybe it was just a British thing, but I remember it being advertised at the beginning of a load of VHS tapes I had.
    I distinctly remember not wanting to watch it.

  • James

    It felt pretty forced and awkward actually. I liked the video but that part about the girl laughing was kind of annoying. I didn’t get it.
    Does she find farting funny or is there some sort of inside joke about them and farting?
    I didn’t get it.

  • JustSomeDong

    Am I the only one who fell in love with Jessie when she was laughing at the Thunderpants description?

  • Muscle-Horse

    He said ‘arse’ not ‘ass’ you fucking arses.

  • David Addis

    Hey, go easy on the ‘mercains! They don’t have our long and cultured history of spelling The British Posterior.

  • Topdek

    Shapeshifter has pretty decent special effects for the time, although the movie seems more convoluted than the plot of Ulysses while on acid.

  • TK

    The movie was released direct-to-video in the United States with practically no marketing whatsoever.

  • Fah Q

    She has a personality.

  • proghead777

    Jessie had pretty much already won me over but her giggle-fit upon being presented with the Thunderpants DVD just carved it into stone.

    Also, Rich said “nook-yu-lar”. HAHAHAHA!

  • proghead777

    I agree. The special effects artists were clearly more talented than… well, everyone else involved in the making of the movie, by several orders of magnitude. The morphing effects were actually not too bad. The CGI griffin was pretty shit for 1999, though.

  • proghead777

    I confess to making negative comments about Jessie (Jessi?) in her first appearances but it had much more to do with the fact that I felt she didn’t contribute to the discussion than the fact she was female. In any case, I regret those comments now. She’s funny, insightful in that she oftens offers a different perspective (as do the rest of the cast) and I feel like she’s a part of the show. The mouth-breathing misogynists don’t warrant consideration.

  • Geahk Burchill

    I think in the first video she was just new to the show. She was quieter and still navigating the waters of a cast which were all very comfortable with one another. As she appears more frequently I suspect she will make a place for herself on the show. As you said, she is making more of an impact in this episode which I think is the natural progression of anyone coming in ‘late’ to an established format.

  • Disqus

    Yeah I remember that too, old boy. Really surprised to see it in Best of the Worst though, I have to say.

  • Disqus

    I don’t understand why these film producers think that kids find farting funny? What is it, like they got a chart in their boardroom that says the younger demographic enjoys the sound of passing wind? Or they enjoy the smell of shit-flavoured air? I used to hate that sh-t as a kid (no pun intended). All those dumb Dr. Seuss-inspired films really ticked me off. DOn’t they see the more successful kids films like Toy Story have, you know, a meaningful tale whilst they also treat kids like tomorrow’s generation rather than circus animals that jump at your every whim.

  • lampscyco

    You should watch alien vs avatar. There you have a really bad movie.

  • Guest Jessi laughing :3

  • adaMAntiumSpoon

    You don’t get out much, do you…

  • adaMAntiumSpoon

    What is with the fucking prices of these ‘Best of the Worst favorites’? Is that really the ‘price to pay’ to watch terrible movies (especially when most are on youtube and other sites)? I feel hipsters are a foot. “It’s cool to pay such pretentious prices for retro movies!” (joke is, they actually think these are GOOD movies because a semi-niche website talked about them…).

  • Guestieguest

    Oh no! “Thunderpants”! I thought I had seen the last of this when a friend made me watch it and I threw the DVD out the window.

  • Tyler Sypherd

    Haha wow this episode was so great, I think these four should always do these, they’re the best together and i think they make it the most enjoyable.

  • The Rich Evans Show

    Haha I love it when angry nerds don’t understand Chip Chipperson

  • Chip Chipperson

    Tss tss what are you a comedy doctor or sumthin tss tss

  • Strelnikov

    Biggest hole in this review: Not mentioning that Stephen Fry appeared in “Thunderpants.”

  • Strelnikov

    How about a sound board going from the weird chuckle he does all the way to his high-pitched guffaw?

  • Strelnikov

    BMFcast already did it.

  • Strelnikov

    Did Stephen Fry plug the film on any British talk shows? Or did he act like he had never heard of the project?

  • Strelnikov

    No, do that thing where the verticle and horizontal tracking keep flipping so it looks like what blocked cable porno channels looked like in the 1980s….sound was clear as a bell, but the picture was gunk.

  • kenchun24

    Haha! The Thunderpants fart count tracker.Yes.I laughed like a person born into Mike Judge’s Idiocracy future.

  • psk

    Luv Jessi! Great personality, cute laugh and fits right in! The fact that she’s smokin’ hot is just an added bonus making her the perfect package. Nicely done Mike, you got a keeper!

  • Dirty Dave

    I LOVE Jessi’s laugh. As much as Rich. This stuff is my favorite internet content, and BotW probably their best program!

  • According to IMDB, Keira Knightley was in Thunderpants.

  • GoodGuy Grayson

    The hell she was…

  • winzentween

    soooooo funny, nice work guys on everything!

  • snakes andert

    I like Rich. But please PLEASE do not mic his laugh. turn down the volume in post if need be.

  • RS

    Looks like it’s true. Stephen Fry was in it too. This movie seems to have a pretty impressive cast and production values, all things considered.

  • RS

    What are you talking about? All three of the movies in this episode are available for between $8 and $25.

  • RS

    Indeed there are.

  • RS

    Did anyone else notice the video was still completely intact after they smashed the toilet?

  • taterboob

    Why do I suddenly have the urge to buy Half in the Bag glasses?

  • adaMAntiumSpoon

    These movies should be in the discount bin at your local drug store…

  • Pulp

    Shapeshifter would have made a good 90s Point-and-click adventure.

  • Barancy Peloma

    amen- that laugh is annoying as hell!!!

  • Rich’s laugh makes horrible movies better. Jessie’s laugh when presented with the Thunderpants DVD grates on my nerves for some reason. Comes off as phony to me.

  • snakes andert

    Fair enough.

  • snakes andert

    I can handle it to a degree, but only sparingly and not when it drowns everything else out.

  • Steffen Sloth

    More Best of The Worst please.

    By far the most amusing segment on the site, if not the most cerebral, and they can’t even take THAT much work compared to something like a Plinkett review.

  • Barancy Peloma

    yes, when he howls for long periods it makes an otherwise funny moment to become unpleasant.

  • SomethingHeavy

    you guys are all trippin’. rich’s laugh is the only reason i come to this site.

  • GoodGuy Grayson

    So what is Best of the Worst the next Half-life? It’s been 4 days short of a month now.

  • Erik Patterson

    It’s been over a month now! Watch some bad movies and talk about them, already!

  • DitzyDaffy

    I don’t want to beg, but… please RedLetterMedia, finish the next episode of Best of the Worst soon! I’m aching to see more, aha.

  • Rab Lerowser

    Hey you lazy ass motherfuckers where is the next BotW

    I need mah fix of shitty movies ive never heard of and you guise tearing them to shreds

    But seriously guys you rule keep up the good work

  • El_Runko
  • David Cole

    It would be kind of funny if the next Best of the Worst had you guy watching MST3K watching a movie. I love both so why not include both.

  • FokuNurDumbIdeas

    That’s the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard.

  • Quinn Mallory

    You better not start to treat this series like Plinketts shitty VCR you lazy fucks !!!
    Start watching those POS movies you beer guzzling nolife losers!

  • Gregory Roth

    Ever consider “Metalstorm the destruction of Jared-syn”? or “Burial Ground” for best of the worst?

  • useless lump

    Oh shit, I legitimately remember picking out Shapeshifter from the video rental store and watching it. On three different occasions. It was my childhood guilty pleasure.

  • Andrew Marlowe Bergman

    So… when do we get a new Best of the Worst?

  • pedro

    more please!!

  • Tom

    I sure host they get to Blastfighter!

  • RMCarpenter

    No way. Rich’s laughter is the sound of a thousand angels singing, and Jessi was absolutely adorable in this episode.

  • RMCarpenter

    Yep. Between the Thunderpants giggling, and her reactions during Wheel of the Worst, I am completely on Team Jessi.

  • RMCarpenter

    Your fannies are in the wrong place. Silly Brits.

  • RMCarpenter

    These are two of the best ideas in the history of good ideas.

  • RMCarpenter

    No way. She totally lost it. It was adorable.

  • RMCarpenter

    I think he just lets his guard down, and it’s his true nature coming through.

  • RMCarpenter


  • Franklin Floratos

    Good question

  • Jack

    When’s the next Plinkett review?
    Actually where’s the next BotW? Put your Plinkett review on hold for a while please to get it done.
    Wow, never thought I’d say that.

  • Franklin Floratos

    I don’t know. Seems fair enough to me, if only for the paradoxical humour.

  • Trevor Lambert

    If you think it’s hard figuring out what they were thinking when they made Playing Dangerous, good luck figuring out why they made a sequel. Looking forward to Playing Dangerous 2 in a future episode.

  • Franklin Floratos

    They also made a Deadly Prey 2 (or are making one, I don’t remember which). I say bring it (soon, please, RLM!).

  • Brad

    More of these, please.

  • Admiral Bone-to-pick

    They also made Robot Wars (Sequel to Robot Jox)
    So Sequel episode!
    playing dangerous 2
    deadly prey 2
    robot wars

  • Franklin Floratos

    Is this a clue?

  • guestopolis

    Uh…I think the ads are breeding…

    We all might want to do some donating to help pay for exterminators…

  • kswiss89

    Funny enough Thunderpants actually has a fresh rating on Rottentomatoes, how ironic since a movie based entirely around farts sounds (and probably smells) rotten as can be.

  • retartarsauce

    omagawds i want that Richard Edlund Vs His Sons poster!

  • Alex Lee

    I think I might actually want to watch Thunderpants. Weird.

  • Rich Wisneski

    Because he is Plinket (in person anyway) I was surprised at the amount of joy that Rich was able to bring another person.

  • Daniel Nguyen-Phuoc

    I really, really want that Richard Edlund vs His Sons poster. Put that in the store!

  • AlcaldeEste

    I saw Thunderpants recently. If you can look past the premise, it’s a competently made childrens’ film. It’s definitely the best movie ever made that’s entirely about farts. Except for The King’s Speech.

  • Hiroki

    “Admiral Bone2pick” … nice.

  • ident

    Correct use of “ironic”. 10 points.

  • Franklin Floratos

    Does anyone know the music played in the background during the Thunderpants discussion? I’ve heard it on the ROTOR discussion and in the ‘Bright Lights, Dumb City’ section of Mr Plinkett’s AOTC review, but I don’t know its title, if it has one.

  • TapewormBike

    Oh God, Robot Wars was the other Phantom Menace for me. When I was a kid I loved Robot Jox and then I found out about the sequel and it just sucks so bad…grrrr

  • TapewormBike

    Am I crazy or does Jessi look like cuter redhead Kirsten Dunst? I also wonder how many times had Mike assured her that she looks better than her (whcih she does).

  • john ledingham

    Damn, Shapeshifter actually looks like a pretty good movie.

  • TapewormBike

    I believe too much vodka, made you see what you saw!

  • TapewormBike

    I sought it out after this. It was pretty good, I really liked the kids actually, which almost never happens

  • Patrick

    Shapeshifter seems like a slightly better version of Indigo Prophecy…

  • myron

    I love this episode’s lineiup – only the OG’s plus The Girl to amp up the cuteness factor. Nothing against the other two dudes, but that’s the way it always should be.

  • Joni Seppänen

    So there is an uncut European version with interactive sex-scenes? I’d buy that!

  • TapewormBike

    So I argue somewhere else that people cannot comment on Jessi without mentioning her looks and now I find this? Go fuck yourselve me.

  • TapewormBike

    I never heard before the part where Jessi goes “Show him where the clitoris is please!” I feel I know too much about her and Mike now

  • SkaMP

    good shit, I had already forgotten that I had stopped the samurai cop half in the bag video because I wanted to take in the glory of it myself first. this video reminded me of that :]. also, I really like half in the bag, and also best of the worst but please keep up with the plinkett reviews :] cheers!

  • dollar store cashier wife

    I wanna stick my dunst in Kirsten’s cunst…oh shit wrong thread never mind this post

  • TapewormBike

    I wanna fuck her till she’s sick. Give her melancholera.

  • RWright1988

    Can’t we just go beyond Thunderpants?

  • wheatbreadroject

    To me the funniest part is where the girl says “I was told there was a surprise” and it totally sounds like many pornos I’ve seen

  • Daniel Bellfield

    Richard is wearing a Ghostbusters shirt in the intro and then he is wearing a fantastic four shirt. what a badass

  • roaroar roarar

    continuity error!!11!!1

  • Concerned Citizen

    RLM: I just bought Thunderpants and forced my friends to watch it. When you watched it, did you notice Keira Knightley? She’s in the scene where the opera singer runs out after the kid when he first plays the high note with a fart.

  • Josh

    Jessi’s laugh when she sees Thunderpants is infectious. Don’t think I’ve heard her laugh so hard

  • PaulClasic

    I watched shapeshifter as a kid, either I didn’t make it through it or I blocked out large portions of it.

  • SirPodinal

    The repackaging discussion for Playing Dangerous inspired me to give Thunderpants a facelift:

  • The HD

    To be fair, her looks are hard to ignore.

  • The HD

    Am I the only one that saw Conan O’Brian as the guy catching baby Thunderpants?

  • Bloomburger Metamycheese

    chota baccha jaanke humko na samjhana re….

    doopi doopi dap dap

    hope someone knows what im talking about. and i pronounce the l in talk and walk but not fuck

  • Lat

    If it’s a surprise, then who ordered the pizza???

  • Jamil Wright

    If charisma was sugar, The Shapeshifter would be Coke Zero.

  • Sam

    “The road to Thunderpants is paved with shit.” Best joke in Red Letter Media history.

  • Lat

    If brains were bird shit, you’d have a clean cage.

  • Lat

    I see you drinkin’ that Zephyrhills, Jessi. FLORIDA REPRESENT

  • JackgarPrime

    That, too, is a surprise.

  • SqualrusWalrus

    the intro was shot a few weeks prior tot he rest of the episode, which they explain

  • Daniel Bellfield

    Yeah I’m totally wrong it’s a Spider-Man shirt on top of me being extra wrong

  • SqualrusWalrus

    I don’t think I’ve ever nit-picked something this small and had the person reply in such a polite manner 🙂 maybe this community is growing up.
    also, I picked up thunderpants on VHS it was great
