Mike and Jay check out the latest Adam Sandler comedy, and their reaction may surprise you.
Filed in: General Updates • Half in the Bag
The moment I saw a Rotten Tomatoes score of 6% but that 90% of the audience liked it, I, in Jay’s words, “don’t feel like [I] belong on this planet.”
Generally the early audience review are really, really fucking generous. But it’ll still sadly end up with an average around 50 or 40%.
What it means is that 90% of the people who went to see it liked it. Anyone with any taste or self respect wouldn’t go see it.
Don’t worry, it has a 4.6 IMDb score. Humanity isn’t all that bad.
Jay’s wrong though with the notion that watching this movie is like eating rat poison. Rat poison’s a treat compared to an Adam Sandler movie.
…Mike and Jay liked this? I don’t even know how to feel anymore.
watch the whole video….
You could not pick up on the sarcasm? It is all in their tone.
“I don’t even know how to feel anymore.” Stupid. You should feel stupid.
This is the real sign that the world is coming to an end. That or human intelligence is devolving. In 100 years, we will all be acting like chimps sitting around a television with this piece of shit movie playing.
BRAWNDO! IT’S GOT WHAT PLANTS CRAVE!
Mike looks hot with a tan!
He looks hotter with blood all over his face mmmmm
Your finest review yet, gentlemen.
If only the schmucks who paid to see such schlock had the same reaction in the theater.
Trolls trolling trolls!
This video got increasingly terrifying.
I see your point.
YOU GOT RED ON YA
“Watching Grown Ups 2!” status update = immediate delete contact.
It appears that watching an Adam Sandler movie causes more damage to the human body than piloting a Jaeger on your own.
Or worse, piloting a Jaeger with someone who has seen an Adam Sandler movie. Those are memories they shouldn’t be sharing. With anyone.
I love that synthesizer background music so much…
I was starting to get cold chills in the back of my head, but then the music started and the world made sense again.
mmmm…. sarcasm and gore, my favorite elements in any video film review.
Mike and Jay really should have drifted before seeing this one…
I was having a horrible day and this just made me crack up. Thank you guys so much!
Whew! That was a CLOSE ONE!
Thank you both
Looky, looky, I refresh and there’s a new Half in the Bag
Oh, Mike and Jay…please, please, please never stop reviewing. With Ebert gone and an enviable JL and Grown Ups 12: The Quest for Peace on the way, I need you in my life. You two men complete me. In the best ways
Kermode’s still kicking.
This… may be the finest film review that has ever been.
All other critics in the world can stay home. Mike & Jay have it covered.
Grown Ups 2 was in second place, idiot.
Gotta love Mike’s “Whadda you know, broah, Adam Sandler is funneh”. Terrifyingly accurate portrayal of my Adam Sandler fan highschool classmates. It felt like being 17 again.
I’m 18 and just LEFT high school… the trauma is still fresh with me.
Mike brought it all back… brought… it… all… baaaaaack…
They had me scared for a bit. But when they started bleeding everywhere, I realized everything was going to be ok.
Funny, that’s how I describe most of my dreams to my therapist.
Therapist? The rapist?
The bleeding was a relief.
That’s what she said HURR HURR DURR HURRRRR.
Oh look it’s whip.
So that’s why there haven’t been many updates recently… Mike’s been on vacation!
The start of the review was actually more terrifying than the end. It’s like a horror film in reverse.
Great work as always, RLM!
That was the scariest fucking thing I’ve ever seen in my life… and then the blood started flowing and everything was okay again.
The three top comments….are essentially the same.
Kinda like Adam Sandler’s movies. Always on top… yet always the same. Where da fuck is my tinfoil hat?
This was really disturbing and, frankly, I had to look away. I shouldn’t have to see Mike in a baby blue shirt with no warning.
Mike’s baby blue shirt was so distracting, I didn’t immediately notice that Jay shaved his beard.
I guess it didn’t sit well with test audiences…
Chaulket Wasted is in comic sans. I will kill myself now.
This piece of hackwork doesn’t count! С’mon guys. You can do better.
I recommend you guys @ RLM for not even trying to take Grown Ups 2 seriously. It obviously didn’t take itself serious, so why should you?
will there be a longer version or was this it?
I’m pretty sure Mike and/or Jay are in transition based on the Man of Steel HITB review. It seems they are selling a house or moving or something. I doubt they have much time right now to create full episodes.
That’s a shame if that’s the case. One of my all time favourite Half in the bag episodes is Jack And Jill
Nope, they recorded 2 episodes of HITB and 1 episode of BOTW a few days ago.
Are you saying BOTW 8? I saw that it was coming on facebook. They are making an effort to be prolific these days but there are a lot of clues that there are other things going on behind the scenes and the recent episodes have not been very ‘full’. At the very least they are switching up the Plinkett storyline and something else is coming down the pike.
Well, I just follow them on twitter… a little while ago they released the trailer for SPACE COP with the comment, that they are working on it right now.
But yeah, they also recorded a new BOTW (Wheel of the Worst #2).
I’m glad about Space Cop. I’ve been anxious to see it since they first started teasing it more than a year ago. It looks hilarious. Just seeing Rich in that costume is great!
yeah me too. These guys actually make good movies. It’s not like the people over at TGWTG (that guy with the glasses) ugh.
Yeah, well the talent in that team is clearly with Angry Joe (Though I was appalled by his Man of Steel review)
Really they said all they really needed to say about Adam Sandler. It’s kind of beating a dead horse at this point.
That. Was. Brilliant!
Stay safe guys.
Do you all have any interest in reviewing Monsters U and/or Despicable Me 2?
Did they survive? I wouldn’t survive after watching a schlock like this film.
Mike’s wish came true; They were both killed by an Adam Sandler movie.
I KNEW that was coming! lol Excellent review!
ha ha ha.. funny… NOW DO PACIFIC RIM!
I’ll do it. Plot flat like a plank of wood, good performances mixed with horrible, some plotholes, but great action scenes, and you really can’t demand too much from a movie with such sill premise.
I think this might be one of the first times I actually almost snorted my beer over my laptop from laughter. (in general) The anticipation of the earnestness of the 1st part doing a 180 just released explosively when the blood started poring. One of your best ones yet guys!
Did he died ?
I hope Adam Sandler fucking dies, no joke, I can’t take this shit anymore, that fucker needs to die
Dear Jay and Mike, and the entire Red Letter Media crew:
I’ve noticed that there has been an alarming flood of whiny fanboy
babies and dipshit assholes all over the comments section(s) of your
page, more and more so in the past few weeks (months?). Particularly on
this episode. On behalf of us all, I want to apologize for this
appalling and baffling Zergling rush of irritating buffoons exclaiming
that you did this review without seeing the movie, turned into cynical
pricks, lost your touch, sold out to Marvel, or otherwise taking your
opinions personally, etc. These young children and their tirades do not
reflect the views of your actual fans. I think I can speak for all of us
when I say that we eagerly, but patiently, await new BOTW episodes,
HITB episodes, Plinkett reviews, and original films, and we are as
confident as ever that you will continue being awesome. Hopefully this
squabbling nonsense going on in these comments sections will start to
die down after awhile and we can, once again, have nice things.
A Concerned Fan
Um. This is a nice thought but you posted this already.
You are suffering from sense of humor deficiency and possibly maybe lack of sense for sarcasm.
Not saying that the previous post is funny but that is the intent.
Sense of humor deficiency? Really? Are you a Dunning-Kruger poster child?
There is nothing remotely funny, or sarcastically funny, about the post. It’s idiotic. It’s trying to force a meme that is not funny, witty, memorable or in any way clever.
Changing your name doesn’t hide your identity by the way. Not for those who have a clue.
Changing my “name” is not to hide my identity since it’s already hidden.
Besides if you “know” it’s the same person why fret about it ?
Nothing is lamer then when people try to “force” a meme, which you’ve admitted before.
It almost never works. Meme’s take off on their own because they are funny or witty or otherwise enjoyable. You can’t force them. No, you can’t.
And just what is the meme here you hope to create anyhow? Some mindless fanboy drools and kisses their ass? What an effective, clever, memorable meme! So wickedly entertaining and cutting in it’s wit. Deep, speaking on so many levels! It’s so hilarious!
Stop posing this stupid shit please.
Somebody needs a hug.
Reposting and meme-forcing something that was originally posted as a (semi-serious) rally against RLM’s discussion board turning into 4chan. Oh, the irony.
All roads lead to pedobear.
I don’t think RLM gives a shit.
Zergling rush? Helloooo 1999. That is soooo ‘fetch!
For fuck’s sake, this exact comment is on several other videos! Why can’t I flag this shit like on YouTube?
Commenting on youtube is a hobby for retarded people.
You’re thinking of Yahoo News.
It said I might be surprised and it was not wrong
So…I shouldn’t see Grown Ups 2…?
No, see it… just be sure to bring your own rat poison, because the price for theater rat poison is RIDICULOUS nowadays.
I loved Jay’s little quip about how “watching an Adam Sandler movie is like eating rat poison– it’s a really good idea.”
That joke really connected with me, because “rat poison” was my admittedly desperate and ineffective method of suicide after I saw how much money Grown Ups 2 drew in.
Good thing you survived so that you can see Grown Ups 3 in 2014.
I wanna get chocolate wasted, too!
Of course, where I come from that means paying a black prostitute to take a shit on my ballsack.
Mark Bison makes a comment that has something to do with a prostitute.
It’s like poetry.
Only Bisone can go to China.
I love you man.
China’s the name of a big prostitute, right?
I’m sorry that you guys put yourselves through that pain, though I can’t be sure what you expecting in the first place. It’s a shame. I was hoping to get your thoughts on Pacific Rim.
Wait, what are these noises in my brain and why do they hurt?
When’s the next Plinkett review?
i was waiting for the Anti-Monitor to appear at the end of the review..
Pacific Rim a good 7/10 movie, I didn’t much care for it but it was well executed in that, they tried sense.
But it deserves a Plinkett Review style breakdown for all the holes and inconsistencies.
A movie like ‘Pacific Rim’ gets a pass on that sort of thing. Flicks like this have a plot intended only to move you along to the next gigantic battle.
It’s shallow, and I’m completely FINE admitting that. It’s exactly what I plunked down my hard-earned coins to see: giant fucking robots beating the shit out of giant fucking monsters, and it delivered that guilty pleasure in spades.
I will remember this flick for a long time, not because of (Spoiler!) Marshall Pentecost’s brave sacrifice, but because a hulking mech walked down the flaming streets of Hong Kong with a cargo ship in it’s hand and beat the shit out of a sea monster with it.
People like you are part of the Problem. There’s no reason why a giant monster movie can’t have a great plot. Idiots who say “Turn off your brain and enjoy it for what it is!” make me wish the planet would be invaded by giant monsters that destroy Humanity.
well in that case we shall build a giant Japanese schoolgirl so they can put their tentacles in her… oh my got I went too far…
No, keep going, I just unzipped my pants…
Why is that so bad? Not all media needs to be a vast sweeping tale and thorough metaphysical exploration of the the human condition.
There’s enough room in world for films that are just tits and explosions.
A great plot would have been a bonus. I sure as hell didn’t expect one.
Did you? Did you REALLY?
were the robots supposed to read poetry to each other?
for action films IMO, it was above average which is quite an accomplishment.
Oh, please, stop the drama.
It all comes down to what kind of movie you were expecting.
You apparently thought there was going to be something deeper, and I’m assuming you walked away disappointed.
I walked in expecting *exactly* what I got, and had fun.
It’d be great if Pacific Rim had a better story. I’d be all for it. That would make an already fun movie even better. But on it’s own, even without a strong or even original narrative, the raw *spectacle* of the event — the bare minimum I expected going in — was enough to allow me to have a blast.
The trailers promised one thing, and it delivered.
There’s enough room in life for enjoying mindless bad-assery AND losing yourself in a compelling, well-written story.
Sometimes both, if we’re really lucky. (Jurassic Park comes to mind.)
Prob should of used those knives since the pilots both knew about them cause of the neural bridge handshake to rocket slam the knife fist sword into the monster’s brain instead of wasting 5 minutes punching it and letting the other monster stomp around and kill people….. oh wait… or maybe cause he didn’t have to get the other guy’s son killed since he could have ejected like the main characters did?
So…… they liked it?
Dear Mike and Jay, What were your thoughts on Pacific Rim? I personally wish it got more attention than Grown Ups 2, but I certainly would love a Half in the bag episode about Pacific Rim 2
They recorded 2 HITB episodes in the past few days. The next “real” episode will probably online soon. Will it be about Pacific Rim? I don’t know.
Such an epic, deep, probing look into the film requires this will have some kind of HitB extras video, correct? I mean,you can’t possibly have covered everything, even in the massive amount of time you already spent at this.
Looking forward to the extras and behind the scenes!
How droll. In seriousness, please share your thoughts on Pacific Rim! I’d love to hear Mike & Jay’s breakdown of the movie.
fuck you nerd
After watching Pacific Rim on Thursday, I walked in to see if there was a crowd for Grown Ups 2. Surely enough, the theater was packed (while PR had less than half of an audience). I managed to see the ‘deer pissing on Adam Sandler’s face’ part and, I kid you not, everyone began to laugh. One particularly fat fellow spat out his popcorn and began to honk loudly while clapping his hands at the, uh, ‘hilarity’.
Your story saddens my heart.
I’m so sorry you had to witness that
I don’t know how you live with seeing that. I hope there is a support group and/or charity for you and unlucky souls like you to seek guidance, therapy and find the good within humanity again. I wish you luck on your journey.
It’s okay rikki, you’re with friends now. The mushbrains can’t hurt you with their shrill soulless honking anymore, we’re here with you.
::hug:: Thank you… You guys are like my keg of beer. You help me forget.
That ‘man’ was actually a walrus judging by the clapping, honking, and the fact that he paid to see Grown Ups 2.
I would have yelled out “WHY ARE YOU PEOPLE WATCHING THIS GARBAGE?” before leaving in disgust.
I did that once when I peeked in on What’s Your Number and I got pelted by popcorn tubs and…empty tampon cases.
No! That’s not true! That’s impossible!
This has been the worst year for movies in a long time.
Agreed. I’ve only enjoyed five or so movies this year of the very many I’ve watched.
my childhood has been raped 3 times already since january.. and i can sense some Michael Bay/disturbance in the Force somewhere…
I have a prolapsed arsehole
i wont only blame the pizza rolls
I’ve been saying that for years! I lived through the 80′s and 90′s when you actually had a hard time choosing which great movie you wanted to see, but now I don’t even watch movies when they come out on cable. I haven’t been to a theater in years. I don’t think it’s ever going to get better, either.
I’m not sure if the joke is “I sort of liked an Adam Sandler movie, so I’m killing myself” or “we were lying about saying we liked anything about it”. Probably the latter based on their history, but still.
6% on Rotten Tomatoes.I doubt they like it.
That was quite disturbing guys. I’m glad I didn’t watch it stoned.
I don’t know if I trust this review at all. Oh wait, I never see Adam Sandler movies anyway, so it doesn’t matter.
What a… redundant comment. That is pretty difficult to achieve since all comments are superfluous.
ok so at first I thought they where being reall about this.. should of know better!
When is the next half in the bag coming out?
The one guest staring Guillermo Del Toro and a giant robot.
Because fuck Grown Ups 2.
No one gives a shit about that.
It’s unfortunate that the box office says otherwise. A shame really.
You guys want more new episodes of HITB ,Plinkett reviews or Space Cop etc now rather than later,then donate some money!.You are basically getting this stuff for FREE.Give Jay and Mike a break or pay up you bunch of ungrateful little bitches..
Do you work for them? Anyway, I have purchased goods from their webshop. I’m currently drinking from one of their finest pint glasses.
You know who i’m talking about..
Yeah, you’re talking about Rick Berman.
Rick Berman,Rick McCallum..Hey why are so many assholes called Rick?
See, I told you all this would happen if they reviewed this!
I’m not bothered because I wanted to see them both have a breakdown on screen, but you all should be ashamed of yourselves!
Well, people did post that they wanted to see a review of Grown-ups 2. Ask and you shall receive, apparently.
You had me going for a minute.
They had me going for 2:54 minutes.
OH MY GAAAAAHD
you deserved it after trashing man of steel
Why? Because so many fanboys have convinced themselves that MOS is a good film?
In its defense, it wasn’t like a Michael Bay or JJ Abrams movie, totally superficial and terrified of actually going anywhere. People want to say that the Hollywood business model is unsustainable, the only thing around here that’s unsustainable is constantly making those boring-ass fake movies and hoping the audience never catches on.
RLM and the rest of the world deserve what?
Man of Steel sucked ass.
Yeah the marketing executives of IHOP were fucking *pissed* after that.
Nice! For a second I thought “Adam Sandler blackmailed them”
Dudes, ‘gross-out’ is not the same as ‘funny’.
it was funny because it was smart. They gave a bad review in the most unexpected way possible, by having an aneurism trying to say positive things about it.
It didn’t seem smart. It just seemed crass.
You wanna see crass, check out this: http://www.mikeisgod.com/videos/2-girls-1-cup
That is crass.
This review is hilarious. Quit being a pussy.
Oh, I’m no pussy. I just prefer wit and style which Mike and Jay usually do. Not this lazy Sandler-type shit designed to appeal to twenty-two year-old Cheezit-stuffed basement virgins with no college. I hope that explains things, you little cunt.
I think you’re taking things a little too seriously. Especially the review.
Oh, I was just communicating to VasiddisaV that I wasn’t a pussy. Not being serious at all.
Hey, you are what you eat. Pussy.
You actually connected the dots in one of your responses, and it still went over your head? C’mannnnn…
Yeah, I know that you’re trying to sell this as ‘Sandler satire’ but it just wasn’t. I thought it was crass. Plenty of other people loved it, just not me. Let it go.
And how long have you been a fan of RLM?
Thank goodness Jay and Mike have a comedy genius like you to keep them in line when they falter.
That’s probably the most honest Grown Ups 2 review around. I can see myself leaving the theather and feeling that way. Actually, scratch that, I can’t see myself watching an Adam Sandler movie.
Woo hoo! No freakin’ Blip Disneyland ad!
Go to work, almost die from shitty astma, just a random shit day and then CHAULKLET WASTED just made it worth it
Well, it happened. A movie finally killed them.
Don’t worry, it has just severely, severely crippled them for life.
Well, it’s exactly what everyone expected about this movie, since i sadly saw the first Grown Ups movie on the theater, and it was the worst theater experience i had in my life, nothing was funny, and absoultely nothing happened.
I’m glad I’m not the only one around here who vomits blood.
Man of Steel review: Too serious, failed to pull off “The Dark Knight”. Uncomfortably dark.
White House Down review: Just stupid, but took itself too seriously.
Lone Ranger review: Lots of boring parts, tone issues. A bad remake of something that shouldn’t be remade in the first place.
Grown Ups 2 review: FORK IN THE BRAIN. FORK IN THE BRAIN. FORK IN THE BRAIN.
It’s like four Hollywood execs sat around one night, chugging beer and one of them was like, “Hey. Hey. I bet my studio can make the worst movie of the year.”
Then another is like, “No way. My studio churns out uninspired bullshit every month, we’d totally make the worst one of the year.”
The one who drank the most booze goes on to propose this. “Let’s make a pact. We’ll each try to make the worst movies that we can. Whoever makes the worst movie gets to screw George Lucas.”
“Nah, nah!” exclaimed the dumbest and, surprisingly, least drunk exec. “…Winner fucks Roland Emmerich.”
I think we all know who won that bet…
This is so twisted. By the end of the review I was laughing so hard that there were tears.
Same here. I haven’t laughed this much since the Zaat review.
If you’re vomiting blood and you visit a hospital in Britain, they just send you straight home.
STOP WASTING MY TIME, says the doctor.
Awe man I gotta go see it! Shouldn’t have wasted money on that stupid transformers movie – I think michael bay’s really lost his edge
Noooooo, what are you doing! Where’s new Best of The Worst??
When I saw the running time for this review, I knew I was in for one of those rare wastes of everyone’s time where Mike and Jay provide no evidence they even saw the film in question.
You’re right man. I hate fun too.
we all hate fun
Yeah I wish they would have just bitched about how the movie is bad instead of doing some creative.
Wasting time and being on RLM.com are the same exact thing.
Welcome to the internet, asshole.
And still you watched it, and then decided to moan about it.
whip-knighting like a champ.
whip-knighting? really? LOL.
iActualCleverness=iPerceivedCleverness / 2;
Calling me stupid does not get it up for me.
Your whip-raging on the other hand…job
You’re…..one of those morons who saw Grown Ups 2, aren’t you?
Yes you got me.I’m Jay.
So then you decided not to watch it and move on, because you were so offended that they likely didn’t bother to take the time to see a sequel to a half-assed alleged comedy from Adam Sandler, right? I mean clearly you didn’t sit through something you appear to have been so personally annoyed by.
that’s funny, because Adam Sandler probably never watched it either. But you dont get all high and mighty up in his grill, do ya?
Jack and Jill drove me to quit movie criticism. Do some research before you commit libel.
Do some research? You mean research ON YOU? You’re just some guy making comments on someone else’s website. How would anyone here know/care that you also do film reviews? Check your ego, dipshit.
Keep hiding behind that guest face.
That was hilarious. But seriously you guys should do a Pacific Rim review.
They tweeted the other day that they filmed two HitB episodes (well, maybe more like 1.2 HitB episodes or thereabouts) and one BotW episode. I think Pacific Rim is a likely candidate for the second one they made.
I liked Grown Ups, it was dumb and I cannot remember what happened in it, however it was a fun movie to just have a few drinks to and pass the time away. I can think of many other films that I just found to less entertaining, like Looper, my god was that dull and pointless.
You couldn’t find anything better to do… like eat an actual piece of shit?
Or a bullet.
Either option is far more enjoyable than watching an Adam Sandler movie.
I hope you are trolling or joking. Otherwise congratulations. You are the target audience for this drek.
I’d respect you more if you watched necrobeastiality porn.
Is there where people screw dead animals, or animals screw dead people?
I don’t care what you haters say, I liked the first one, I’ve not seen the second and I thought Jack and Jill was just terrible……… well what I bothered to see of it. However I could sit through Grown Ups and laugh, thought maybe it was because I was pissed.
pissed . . . on by a deer?
So, a well made scifi movie with an intelligently written, original script is dull and pointless but a horribly written, unoriginal piece of garbage made for a quick buck is a fun way to pass the time. Congratulations, Adam Sandler’s target audience.
*you’re Adam Sandler’s
I bet you didn’t get “A”s in school.
that reminds me of a guy i used to know who turned off the car radio while it was playing Pink Floyd’s “learning to fly” because it was “boring”. he later was arrested for child molestation and is on a sex offender registry. so there ya go! he may have a few faults, but at least he knows what ‘good music’ is.
I even liked Just go with it…… in fact I thought that was one of his funniest movies and I laughed a lot, way better than most other comedies these days….. though that isn’t saying much.
With this episode Mike and Jay have refined the satirical movie review. Look, when the only good parts of the movie are in the trailer, and that trailer is found wanting, then even Mr. Plinkett might not be inspired to proffer an analysis.
Inspired to poop an anal…analass…
Wait, you guys saw Grown Ups 2? I’m sorry, but I cannot support a site which advocates masochism. Unsubscribe!
RIP, Mike and Jay
The main thing I took away from this is that Mike and Jay were actually drinking a branded beer for once. Obviously we can all learn a thing or two from Adam Sandler’s subtle approach to product placement
Spotted Cow – which they normally drink – is not only a real brand, but one of the finest beers in the world! It is only available in Wisconsin at the moment.
They’ve said they are not against product placement, but as long as it’s not as obvious as the Dunkin Donuts in Jack and Jill or Nike in What Women Want.
Or every part of the movie Mac & Me.
Mike ruined his new shirt.
So glad you didn’t waste a full episode on another Adam Sandler movie.
That Jack ‘n’ Jill one was pretty good.
When they first started getting into the review I was like “wait, what’s going on?…have I entered another dimension?”.
Grandma’s Boy is hilarious. You should actually watch it before dismissing it. Adam Sandler isn’t even in it.
It’s pretty funny but weird. I think that the villain might be a parody of John Romero.
i can’t stop watching…
I laughed at this, though I’m not sure why. Was the reaction at the end because they only said it was a good movie thanks to a shared massive brain aneurism, or was the fact that they actually found an Adam Sandler movie that was good what caused the shared massive brain aneurism? Someone tell me, because I am NOT going to watch this movie to find out.
the way they said “those funny guys” tells me its utter shite
I keep wondering who does their laundry, and who cleans up their sets after they trash them.
I mean, it’s pure bliss watching them trash their sets and spray blood all over their costumes and clothes… but someone’s gotta be like “Oh man they broke all the beer bottles again?”
You can see blood stains on the wall behind them from a previous clip. They probably don’t clean it that much.
Or a previous take
No, it’s just this movie’s awfulness can warp spacetime.
you can also watch them tear down the whole set and rebuild it in a new location … they do alot of (if not all?) their own shit. there are other clips showing jays behind the scenes magic (for example Feeding Frenzy)
Sooooooooooooo…… It’s good?
I think they made it pretty clear.
If you like bleeding from multiple facial orifices, while having only brief moments of lucidity, in an otherwise foggy haze of your brain shutting down.. then you’ll LOVE THIS MOVIE!
Well, I’m not sure about all that but those 2 guys covered in raspberry jam seemed to enjoy it.
the much antisipated sequal to one of the worst buddy comedies ever made.. of course it’s gonna be the best film ever made!! move over citizen cane..
Adam Sandler is funny bro, what do you know?? Genius!
I like to imagine there was a ‘scanner’ forcing them to praise Grown Ups 2.
Ha ha. And sadly there are many dead-serious TV reviews of this movie that read just like the first 2 minutes of this clip.
I don’t think they actually liked it that much.
Really? Was it the oozing blood that gave it away
He should never have tried to pilot that Gundam by himself is all.
I should have suspected something when I saw Mike in a nice, clean, new uniform.
I guess they liked it. After all, there are worse things than a fork in the brain!
Fork in the brain, fork in the brain, fork in the brain, fork in the brain…
When is there gonna be a new Best of the Worst you lazy bums!?
I’m not entierly sure if they just hated it and are just acting like the lovable sarcastic dicks they always are, or they liked it and it is so painful too admit that they start bleeding from every orifice.
They hated it and are being sarcastic.
I too was a bit confused having never seen (or heard about) Grown Ups 1. Seeing how it got 6% on rotten tomatoes, they are being sarcastic.
Woah slow your roll there P.B. I’m pretty sure that % rating on Rotten Tomatoes is the number of people who DISliked it and that they were bleeding out of their eyes from the sheer awesomeness of Grown Ups 2.
But let’s agree to call it Ebola 2 from this point on, okay?
When you plug Adam Sandler into the equation, I think you will find that the most likely combination is hate + sarcasm.
Like every guilty pleasure.
what box office reports said Grown ups 2 was #1 last week? Despicable Me 2 was #1 2 weeks in a row per box office mojo .com?
Just so you know, that blood wasn’t real.
But the pain was.
neither was the humor
Grown Ups 1 was so unfunny that i couldn’t finish watching it….no need to see Grown Ups 2
Mike heidecker and Jay wareheim
Hnhh. You know, I collected their first four seasons, but haven’t even watched them yet, because sketch comedy is so far down in my queue. But this sounds like a lead. I should watch them.
Thanks bunchly for your casual remark, oh, Just Reminder.
Well they DID shell out the extra 20 bucks to have Tim on the set for two minutes that one time.
I’m a fly-over cow. “Moooooo”
When’s the next BLIP video you fucking hackfrauds? I WANT MY DISNEY COMMERCIAL! WHEN SHOULD I USE MY FUCKING SEATBELT? SHOULD I GO ON A SUPER LOW BUDGET CRUISE IN UNREGULATED UNPOLICED INTERNATIONAL WATERS??!?!?! FUCK!!!!
Are you fucking kidding me? A YouTube upload? Are you mental?.. WHERE’S THE NEXT HALF IN THE PLINKET WHEEL OF THE WORST REVIEW?!?!?!…. (blurp)… I… I’m not feeling… o… k…. AWWMYGAWHD, WHAT’S WRONG WITH MY…. IT’S GONNA BE GREAT… FACEEEEEEE… (choaked in my vomit) This review it’s like having sex with a horse… ARRRRRRGGGHHHH (uncontrolled diarrea coming up from my ass trhought my mouth) PLEASE MAKE IT SAPH!
Make it ‘saph’? Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?
As in “sapphic erotica”
My head hurts.
Try removing the fork.
When one’s skull is punctured by a foreign object such as a fork, knife, or axe, it is usually best to leave it in until emergency personnel arrive and a certified surgeon can assist in removal, as most of the threatening damage occurs post-removal – the weapon is blocking serious bleeding.
So I’m thinking what he’s saying is, if you’ve watched an Adam Sandler movie and attacked yourself with a fork as result, go ahead and remove the fork, knife, chainsaw, whatever, before paramedics arrive. You might sustain sufficient injury to forget the Adam Sandler film entirely – or at least fall into a coma, preventing you from having conscious knowledge of the movie.
Try removing the brain. You’ll feel better in no time.
Judging by the op’s avatar he’s way ahead of you.
I fucking shot my wine out my nose and choked on my spliff for almost 8 minutes…. on some ‘get smoked like that blunt’ shit… lmfao… you guys are the best!
F*ck the pain away…
F*ck the pain away…
F*ck the pain away…
You two are unreal that’s not hyperbole, we fans know it it’s true. Not Judge, Parker and Stone, or McFarland. HITB. I recommend RLM all the time to people, and they always ask me, “What is it?” And I’m like, “It’s Siskel and Ebert for the 21st century, mixed with Monty Python.” Y’all are consistently the most originally funny program anywhere in the world right now. Do you deserve to get paid like those other guys. Yes. Will you? You never know. One thing is for certain, the internet is a perfect platform that allows you guys to be no-holds-barred in your comedy, beholden to no squeamish producers.
Hey, now… there’s room for Judge, Parker, Stone AND Half in the Bag, in my opinion. (Yeah, but FUCK MACFARLANE!)
Half in the Bag has those elements that I love about the aforementioned artists, though. Their ability to emulate the mannerisms of idiots reminds me a LOT of Beavis and Butthead (and all Mike’s talk of “dumb masses” screams of ‘Idiocracy.’) It has South Park’s crassness and “Monty Python” flair. Plus, Mike and Jay have that kind of “dry humor” aspect to them that made King of the Hill one of my favorite shows.
Carry on, you brave soldiers.
How did they survive sitting through the whole movie, getting back to their shop, and then saying all those lovely things about the film until they started bleeding from various orifices on their heads?
Most people would have been dead within the first 10 minutes of the movie. These guys are legends!
I was expecting a Pacific Rim review, not Grown ups 2.
Im not a huge fan of over-the-top action movies but its fucking awesome.
Here’s hoping that’s what they have planned for their next episode.
I hope you guys didn’t actually pay to see this piece of crap…
I fucking love how sarcastic they get. It’s hilarious
All I’m say is if you’re going to go to the trouble of putting together anything labeled a review, have the content to suggest you actually saw the movie.
They’ve already spent a grossly undeserved amount of time slaughtering and exposing the horrors of Sandler’s “work.” This is just their way of assuring us that, despite its success, it’s just more of the same garbage. Doing this (hilariously so, if I may add) allows them to focus on movies that actually matter while still saying something bold about this one.
I agree. It said in creative shorthand what would have been boring to say (and hear) again at length.
Did you see the trailer? Then you’ve seen the movie.
FORK IN DA BRAIN, BRAH!
So did you really want an in depth review of goddamn Grown Ups 2? Clearly the video itself was a joke. (Refer to Gloomu Uptu’s comment ;).) And they already stated that they’ve finished another Half in the Bag and Best of the Worst, so just wait for those since I guess you clearly don’t get the point this video. In the meantime, I recommend that you go and watch the Step Up Revolution episode to hold you over. I think that you’ll probably find it highly informative.
STOP DOING CREATIVE AND SURPRISING THINGS, RED LETTER MEDIA!
Christ, I’m sure glad you have no input in what they do.
Are Sandler’s “movies” different? I mean, do they each need to be seen to be reviewed? They all feature the same actors playing the same characters (just the names have been changed to protect the investors), and they all follow the same story beats, and feature the same racist, xenophobic, and homophobic jokes. What’s the fucking point? If you’ve seen Chuck & Larry, you’ve seen Jack & Jill, and if you’ve seen Grown Ups, then you’ve sure as fuck seen Grown Ups 2 and should probably have yourself lobotomized.
IMO, Sandler’s movies aren’t worth a REview, let alone an actual viewing. I wouldn’t give that hack $9 just to prove me right. Fuck that guy.
I bet you’re a real blast at parties, Vaughn Fry.
I think what you say is true, just not in this context.
Do you truly believe that Mike and Jay expect people to take this video seriously as a review?
This is obviously a comedy piece.
For a second I was like, these guys serious? But then I was like Mike’s shirt is different, that must mean something. Then I saw blood and it all made sense,
/They got me too until I saw the blood.
Seriously, I was planning to go buy a ticket thinking that Adam accidentally made a great movie…
spoilers? Why would you read the comments before watching the video . . . that’s . . . that’s madness.
i expected something like that
Haha! RLM never disappoints. Expect the unexpected as I’m sure your nod to Pacific Rim could be viewed as either…
A) You liked Pacific Rim equally as much as the recent Adam Sandler poop sandwich,and are ripping on both films (which I highly doubt,but could be possible).
B) You liked Pacific Rim so much you decided to pay tribute via the “the drift” experience of sitting through Grown Ups 2.
Whatever the end result may be,thanks for the laugh guys!
I am fully prepared for RLM to rip Pacific Rim apart even though it’s a film I support. I honestly don’t know which way they would go in reviewing it. It might be just the kind of thing Jay likes because it’s fun and kind of goofy and it might be just what Mike likes because it’s Science Fiction. But they could just as easily hate it and destroy it. I don’t really care. These guys have so much artistic integrity that I am able to accept even the opinions I totally disagree with them on. I know they won’t half-ass it even if they are hack-frauds.
Ha! Same here,it won’t matter to me. I love the guys and the content they provide on RLM. Even though I have disagreed with their reviews before,I still dig the show(s). This was a part of my post awhile back on the Man Of Steel extras thread –
“With that being said, I’m ready for some newish sci-fi action/film/IP
stuff that’s not a sequel/prequel or re-boot of a well known property
and cannot wait for the upcoming Pacific Rim and Elysium.
I’m biased for Pacific Rim though due to the fact that I’m a Navy
brat born in Japan and lived there from ’76 to ’81. So bad
reviews or “movie science vs. real science” nitpicking cynicism due to my exposure and love for all things Giant Robo,Mecha/Kaiju/Shogun Warrior/Super Sentai TV shows will go right over my head. Even from Mike & Jay.”
I think they may lie in the middle towards PR. Pointing out it’s simplistic/silly dialogue,story,characters and comedy bits like most of the films detractors. While praising the detailed world building of del Toro,the cinematography work of DP Guillermo Navarro and fun tone of the movie (especially based on recent reviews as of late). But for me I go back to the Ebert quote…
“It’s not what a movie is about ,its how it is about it…”
…to me Pacific Rim was “about it” pretty damn well. Not just from my biased POV (and personal experience with an audience both times I saw it) but many friends of mine were surprised by how much they enjoyed it. Seems to be the same sentiment over the web. From positive reviews across the board,or any YouTube Pacific Rim related video trailer/reviews comments sections since its release.
Hey what do you know?! Mike and Jay liked Pacific Rim (Jay a bit more than Mike) but overall both were very positive – actually Mike said folks should “Absofuckinglutely see Pacific Rim.” So maybe he liked it more that he eluded to in this review.
Was that posted on Twitter? I missed it. I’m glad to hear they liked it though!
Oops, I hadn’t seen that they put up their review already! (Wow, these Hackfrauds are working overtime these days, really gettin’ the reviews out quick!)
I thought “Pacific Rim” was awesome. Mike and Jay probably won’t like it though, they normally give popcorn flicks a bad review.
Come on. Is that really an accurate statement? They enjoyed the Avengers, John Carter, and even gave Battleship (of all fucking movies) a “not as painful as you’d think” stamp of semi-approval. It’s just most popcorn flicks are garbage these days.
That being said, I thoroughly enjoyed Pacific Rim. Don’t get me wrong, It was full of schlock, but it was at least *aware* of its schlockiness, and never took itself too seriously.
I believe jay made mention on twitter that he like PR
THEY ARE SUCH GOOD ACTORS
Gosh I hope they’re OK
Me too. I don’t know if Jay can ever get that bar thing removed from across his eyes.
excellent as always. I hope you are all sweating bullets to get the next vid out to please the insatiable audience. You guys will be 60 before you know it! GO TO HAWAII!
Is this the end of Half in the Bag!?!?!?
This is so great, you really had me. I was actually happy for you guys, having seen a nice movie. Bought the whole thing, choke-ups and all. I was crying with laughter when the blood started trickling. Laughing at your faces and my own stupidity for buying into it
Thanks guys. Hope you have a nice holiday soon, try not to watch any movies for a while OK?
Don’t do that last thing.
God damn you guys i spewed my beer all over my monitor laughing at the ending to this
I don’t know if Mike and Joy read comments, but please don’t stop the VCR repairmen storyline! Of course the review part is most important, but the silly story stuff was part of what makes Half in the Bag unique! Long live RLM!
Mike and Jay*
I prefer ‘Mike and Joy’.
Jay, Joy, Joey. He’s just got one of those faces…
My jaw literally dropped at the beginning of this video.. Then promptly pissed my pants with laughter.
Know how I know you’re a flyover cow?
I’m really glad you enjoyed it. It really is a cut above Sandler’s more recent movies, probably his finest comedy since Chuck & Larry. One has to wonder if he’s seen your Jack & Jill review and decided to up his game. Good for him, I say, and as long as he keeps up to the standard he’s set for himself with Grown Ups 2, I say good luck to him.
Ash looks like he just reviewed the same movie.
Did Ash rescue any human beings? I know he tried his best to save Sigourney Weaver from choking by shoving a rolled-up magazine in her gob but she was having none of it. Ungrateful bitch.
I can’t recall. I was thinking he’d just rescued Sandler. …But you knew that, right?
Oh, wait, now I get it.
(you get it?)
I read your review, saw the avatar, then thought, “God, that’s brilliant! That’s Ash talking,” followed by a dozen drafts of tricky composition.
Now I Get It, therefore, I am. Wait, that’s Descartes and he was wrong. I am, therefore, I get it. I will get it. I have to. Because I am.
Anyway, I thought your thing was clever, crafty, cunning.
Why, thank you! Completely unintentional on my part, but thank you all the same, sir.
Unintentional. Which is likely why it wasn’t also cute. …Oops, late for work. I simply must get myself one of them portable devices.
You mean one of those newfangled fancy walk man audio cassette players? Fair enough, they are the future after all. Have a nice day, sir.
This is just a saga now.
Mongo confused, did Jay and Silent Bob like or hate Grown-Ups 2? Was that all sarcasm about actual funny sequences in the movie?
I agree, Adam Sandler is the messiah of comedy in our age. After his previous smash productions he’s come around to bamboozle the box office once again with a fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain.
i enjoy you guys.
I never thought for a second that they actually enjoyed Grown Ups 2 for two reasons.
1. The length of this video
2. It’s Grown Ups 2
Way … too …. short.
That was a great short. At first I thought is this a decent movie? I didn’t see
the first one and don’t recall seeing previews for this one so I thought okay.
Then they started ratcheting it up and I realized they were being sarcastic. I
always thought sarcasm was something pretty hard to convey. When they did movie
34 or whatever it was called it got old. It was like a long set up and no
punchline. Here they started low worked their way up and just about as soon as I
was catching on they were being sarcastic here comes the blood. It was very well
This isn’t sarcasm, it’s scorn.
Sarcasm is SUBTLE.
Scorn is burning vitriol.
Hey,assholes…….you never even watched the fucking movie! Sandler is the greatest comic genius of our time so fuck you if you want to rag on his latest screen gem without even taking the time to sit in the cinema on your fat butts and watch it! Good evening Mr and Mrs C, I’m talking to you Cunningham, heyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
Step away from the bike.
I don’t get it.
Not sure if troll or genuinely stupid…
Okay, RLM, I’m still on vacation. How can I relax when you all are working so prodigiously? Fine, I’m cutting the vacation short. I’ll be home in a day or two. I’m sure they’ll be two or three BOTWs waiting for me at home on my little Internet box.
May you be as beautifully bronzed as Mike Stoklasa.
Thanks for the good wishes.
Sad to say, though, I live in fear of melanoma and I’ve remained as white as the insides of Rich Evans’s thighs.
Ow. There’s a visual!
So, that’s why they wore such crisp and clean costumes. Yeah, their super clean uniform distracted me for a while until the gore happened.
Same here. I thought they were going for some kind of clean shirted brain washed thing …
I am a fly over cow .. MOOOWWWWW !
I watched it two times now and i think I am going to watch it again
Adam’s Sandler’s comedic genius cannot be overstated. He really is the next Steve Martin, Woody Allen, and Curly Joe all mixed together! Killme. I saw Grown Ups 1 to preprare myself for the comedic onslaught that I expected the sequel to be, and let me tell you, I was NOT disappointed! Deadchildren. Sandler exhibits such an admirable level of subtlety and guile with his comedic technique that I think his methods should be studied in drama schools all over the nation. He truly is a shining beacon of talent who will light the way for generations of comedians to come. Nohope. I think that when he gets around to producing Grown Ups 3, it will be the shattering conclusion to this epic funny trilogy. It will be the apotheosis of all that is humorous. So strap yourselves in and prepare for another round of FUN! Rottingcarcasses.
Surely I can’t be the only one hoping for a prequel trilogy after Grown Ups 3? There are so many unanswered questions, no way can they answer them all in part 3.
That’s right, Meester Smeeth. And it will be so fucking enjoyable that I will gouge my fucking eyes out with deer antlers out of sheer fucking excitement!
This had me a little worried at first. Thank god for stage blood.
A little disappointed when I saw the short 3min length… but by the time I got to the end I could say this is one of the best reviews they done. And not everyone is going to catch The Box reference,,,
thats what she said! right before she said this:
“I’m innocent! I was raped! I hope you get raped! Scumbags of America!”
i love you guys
Yeah, too bad about the short running time, its a dead giveaway ..
They should have like made a 20 minute episode, 2 minutes ‘normal’ the other 18 minutes throwing up blood, gore, hanging them selfs from the ceiling, lying or rolling on the ground in a puddle of blood in pain, etc .. now, that would have been epic.
I get that Jay and Bob have this well rehearsed shtick of shitting all over mainstream movies. It’s a nice antidote to the nauseating cycles of hype that surround that dross, but it doesn’t seem to offer much else. Are they ever going to review something genuinely good, and discuss why it worked? You know, so they end up recommending some films they enjoyed for being well made…Or are they just endlessly pursuing the same strained dichotomy of corporate cum-buckets v.s. snarky comedic/Internet assholes that critics (of every entertainment medium) seem to be universally falling for? Despite the fact that the whole point of film critics is to help the casual audience pick the odd gems out of a river of mediocrity.
While these reviews are entertaining, I can’t help but ask myself “If these guys find this stuff so agonisingly tedious, and realise that most of it exists to make money instead of acting as an artistic outlet…why the fuck do they bother paying it any attention at all?”.
Who da fuck is “Bob”?
This guy really has no idea where he is.
I’m guessing he thought he was standing out in front of Quick Stop. But I’ve got news for Cobblestone; this ain’t Jersey.
Jay and Silent Bob maybe? Maybe this guy is on to something, Mike could be Kevin Smith in disguise …
I believe we stumbled across that assumption already, but yeah… this guy has no fucking clue where he’s at. Looks like the troll got off at the wrong stop.
“I get that Jay and Bob have this well rehearsed shtick of shitting all over mainstream movies.”
You’re talking crap, they regularly praise mainstream films they’ve enjoyed, and are a hell of a lot less negative than the loudest voices on the internet.
For example, Half in the Bag gave good to really good reviews for The Dark Knight Rises, Prometheus, and The Hobbit, 3 2012 films which a lot of people felt the need to complain and moan about.
They gave good review to Prometheus and The Hobbit? Did you actually watch those reviews?
Prometheus they weren’t exactly hard on, but far from glowing and high praise. Jay was much more enthralled with it, and seemed to be due to his love and respect for Ridley Scott. But to suggest they gave it a positive review is a bit baffling. They had many good questions about it (so many they made another video about the questions alone).
But I may be inclined to give you that one since they did recommend it. Sort of.
But The Hobbit? Seriously.. did you watch the review? They hated it. They complained about the pacing and the 3D and the frames per second shit and a bunch of other complaints. They called it “The Unexpected flop” and were very hard on it. And did not recommend it.
But still, I also don’t want to give the original poster much credit. Mike and Jay have certainly given good glowing praise of many movies in their time. A substantial portion. It also drives me nuts when people say trite rhetoric like “Do you guys like ANYTHING?” And I often want to post something like you did in response.
But then I see your response.. Prometheus and The Hobbit. Seriously, I’m not sure you actually watched those reviews. Those are NOT good examples.
Maybe you were just really wanting to offer the most recent examples, rather than dated ones?
Better examples of their true praise of movies would be:
Cowboys and Aliens
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Iron Man 3
Dark Knight Rises (as you listed)
NOT Prometheus or the Hobbit. Prometheus was tepid at best. Hobbit they crapped on.
I re-watched the The Dark Knight Rises review and it’s a decent example of what I mean. They did five minutes of “it’s fucking awesome and epic” ten minutes of “this is why you should pick apart the plot holes” and the other half was “it’s good because it didn’t do all these shit things other movies do”. The problem isn’t that they’re wrong about any of it. It’s just that their only context for why it was good was that it wasn’t all of these other bad things…or was so generic as to be fairly meaningless.
(paraphrased) “A lot of it worked because of the musical score. If you take the soundtrack out of a decent film it will often feel flat and hokey.”
(i.e. it works because it does)
…where they could have explained that it reinforced the tone of certain scene by marrying movements in the music to the events on screen in a way that only an accomplished composer doing bespoke work can manage successfully.
(v.s. it works because of [this mechanic], and they achieved by doing [this])
Anyway, I’m not complaining about Half in the Bag. Like I said, it’s entertaining and fun. I was just wondering if they cover some the “film as art” stuff they occasionally mention in passing.
The DKR HitB had problems (when they like a movie they generally lack for decent things to say, as you said) but the score thing was great. They were relating the common Hollywood belief that a movie’s sound is actually more important than the visuals, so you had it backwards; you should have complained that they didn’t show how the things on screen are helped by the sound, not the other way around. Which they basically did anyway, by way of an illustrative ET clip.
You’re absolutely right about this episode. If there’s one thing these guys portray perfectly it’s the physical sense of revulsion you get from the mindlessly cobbled together, appeal to the lowest common denominator, cash-grabs-passed-off-as-movies and the people that pay to see them.
I disagree on the Dark Knight Rises thing, though. They covered that it worked in DKR, and that the absence of music in a scene designed to have a musical accompaniment makes it suck, but not the whys and the hows of it.
I was just wondering if they *will* cover some the “film as art” stuff they occasionally mention in passing.
…because I’m a retard who doesn’t proof read his posts.
More than anything else, I want to see these guys review A Field in England, and it annoys me that it won’t happen.
Sorry to say that, but HitB really is some kind of feeding the audience with funny bits and keep them entertained untill the next Plinkett Review. Which I very much prefer to waiting a year for the next Plinkett review, for HitB isn’t that bad.. it is just not as in-depth and well scripted as a Plinketting.
you are, actually, complaining about half in the bag, in fact, you wrote about a dozen paragraphs where you complain about half in the bag. in fact, you point out its flaws and faults. without actually telling us why you like it or why you are even here. why do you even exist? why do any of us exist? why the roman alphabet? why is an A shaped like an A? I mean what if B was shaped like A and A was shaped like B? Would shakespeare be any less of a work of literature, if in some alternative universe, all the Bs and As were switched?
It’s not really about Grown Ups 2 but about movies in general. That’s why it’s so weird, because it’s metaphorical. I would bet that Jay and Mike are better than the average film critic, since they actually pay for their tickets and skip movies on occasion, which are the things professional film critics never do, and lose their connection to the casual audience as a result.
go watch the old episodes of HITB, they do like some ////… . holy for fuck OWWW MY BALLS… FUCKING CHRIST A FUCKING SPIDER JUST BIT ME… FUCK SOMEONE CALL A DOCTOR.. ANYONE? MY CELLPHONE BATTERY IS DEAD PLEASE CALL A DOCTOR FOR ME, MY Ias,d I CAN FEEL MYSELF FAD….
just kidding!! ha ha ha.
They are not, nor do they claim to be, film critics. They’re film MAKERS… they enjoy creating small and low budget films… from that perspective they obvious have a love for film in general and enjoy talking about the intricacies of the movie business as well as the technical aspects of movie making how it look and is directed to the screenplay itself, to the acting, everything that makes up the profession and art that they enjoy creating for.
From THAT PERSPECTIVE they give their opinions and have a discussion about movies they have seen. Whether it be the recent mainstream movies in HITB or the old school B movies in BOTW. They make movies, they love discussing movies. The end. They’re not professional critics. If they were they wouldn’t put a video up where they literally have brain hemorrhages from watching a movie,.. that they obviously didn’t even actually see. But they’re not… so they do. Because they can. And they want to.
A short list of mainstream movies to which RLM have given good reviews: Django Unchained, The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper, Dredd, and Iron Man 3.
This list could be longer, but I can’t be bothered to trawl through their back catalogue.
In essence what I’m saying is that your point is completely wrong. Your words read like a purely emotional reaction, with little to no real thought applied.
I like the use of the insincerity gradient, one of the finest I’ve ever seen.
salutations internet heathens
mike and jay used this groovey music, when they had questions regarding Prometheus. Is this musik on youtube? what is it’s title? thank you ever so much, you are kind, gentile and most importantly, good looking.
Surely you mean gentle.
If not…are you tryint ot be anti-semitic ? I am confused
oops meant gentle. spelt it wrong please excuse, english is my first language. Do you know the song name from 1.50 by the weigh ?
I’m afraid we don’t learn songs by weight.
Was this entire segment sarcasm or did they actually like the movie and then get ridiculous at the end? I’d believe both.
A tremor in the force tells me they did not like this movie at all.
A tremor in my Bawls sez Dixon could be right!
I think they were being honest, but then made fun of themselves for liking it.
Dunn dunn DUNN!!!!
God damn it! Stop that! You have to be the 12th to do that!
Or maybe the point was that people who like this shit, are brain-dead idiots.
After watching this hilarious video 10 more times I take back my statement. Forgive me and whip me for I have sinned.
Surely a wind up? I know the stereotypical belief is that Americans do not understand sarcasm but I thought RLM viewers were a cut above the typical “Murica” cinema goer.
Stupid people can like intelligent content too.
Just read the comments.
I don’t understand it either..
Do some people just really fail to understand sarcasm that badly? Or do they want to believe something else, and just tune it out?
I mean, near the end of this.. the sarcasm is so dripping and obvious and torturous. I can’t see how *anyone* can miss it’s obvious sarcasm and not remotely serious endorsement. Escalation to ridiculous levels, purposely!
It’s almost too obvious and overdone, as if they felt like some people wouldn’t get the sarcasm, so they needed to really pour it on as hard as they could.. and what do you know .. SOME PEOPLE STILL DON’T GET THE SARCASM.
Do they utterly fail to understand sarcasm? Or are they just ignoring it or rationalizing it so they can make the review say what they want it to say? Like some form of denial?
Am I a Grammar Nazi if your usage of ellipses [two periods instead of three and with varied spaces between] annoys me, even more so when you spell and use grammar properly everywhere else?
they both actually had a viral hemorraghic fever, and decided to let the video get out there so that other people with viral hemorraghic fever won’t feel so alone.
When I saw the blood dripping from Jay’s nose, my first thought was that he must have drifted with Adam Sandler.
Who cleans up the set? Also are you guys coming to FanExpo (Toronto) this year? I want a signed copy of feeding frenzy.
I imagine Rich Evans has clean-up duties…
And they’re probably throwing stuff at him while he’s doing it…
They don’t clean the set
…. It’s a tarp.
“It’s a TARP!!!”
I wondered why Mike was wearing a lighter color than usual. Then I realized it’s because it shows the blood better.
I think it’s because light blue goes really well with a tan.
Best Half in the Bag yet. Been awhile since ive had tears streaming down my face.
Are you sure those were tears? In case you’ve seen GU2 shortly before, you might want to consider seeing a doctor.
I liked the part when they were disingenuous.
A bluejay squawked at me this morning as I took out the trash, to which I replied “That’s right Jay” and laughed myself into fits. I need to stop drinking and/or watching HITB
I honestly would have laughed watching you do that.
I would have died from laughter.
9.7 / 10
I thought they were serious for a while there, nice acting guys!.
FFS I was eating a jam sandwich when I started watching this..
I started eating one when this was over…
LOVELY JAM BUTTY!
I like that Jay mirrors Mike’s over-exaggerated “one of my personal favorites” sarcasm from the last episode. Maybe Jay IS a figment of Mike’s imagination as the empty chair in the Movie 43 made-up-story segment suggests.
That’s what I was thinking… speaking of Movie 43, Mike had the same sarcastic tone when he said “wouldn’t've seen THAT in the Titanic” before making the greatest face of all time.
Haha, that face. I noticed that Mike used this kind of face and posture in the Grabowskis at the end of a joke that’s not funny while the non-existing audience laughs at that joke.
the music is amazing
Hilarious. I wonder if they actually saw it. The review would have been the same either way.
Lol, I didn’t buy they were being honest for one sec when they tried to pretend they liked it. I know you guys WAY too well for that, but nice try! It gotta hilarious when your brains started to melt from saying such inane BS. xD
That Jay guy is actually a pretty handsome dude with his ‘woke up in the morning hair-style’
I can totaly picture him in one of those L’oreal FX Gel commercials ^_^
He looked pretty good in that Turkish death scene skit with the red sweater and the black leather jacket.
But becausse of the personas they play (dim witted half drunk bums) there body language is all over the place, wich results in un-attractive .. ahhh the mistery of perception ^_^
you would really like him in Feeding Frenzy. very attractive character.
I’m so glad someone’s finally broaching this subject. I’ve always thought Jay was the handsomest RLMer by a fairly wide margin (despite the bushy facial hair he often sports giving him a sort of “in-bred Mennonite” look), but I’d never felt there was an appropriate place to share that observation. And now I have one. Thank you Sea Witch!
Come on people. Who cares who you think is attractive? Not a single person. Seriously. Not a single one cares.
Mike, is that you?
I guess this is as good a place as any to bring this up: I’ve always felt that Rich Evans’ laugh is the most sexually attractive thing about RLM.
Jay reminds me of a young Steve Buscemi.
I don’t think that’s a persona..
They don’t know what the word “guilt” means, they think Myspace is still popular, and they throw Margaret Thatcher off of a bridge.
I think that’s a persona.
Mike gets a lot of comedic body language out of his character. All Jay needs is more body control, you often see him stifling a laugh during their skits, while Mike seems to be in total control of himself during the show (which is probably one reason why many viewers think he’s depressed or without emotions). I also think Mike and Jay do a lot of improv and are always in a process of finding themselves / inventing themselves as a comedy duo, working on their comedic dynamics.
Before watching this, my hairdo was NOT the devil…. but afterwords…
Here I was, getting all settled in for another hilarious HITB take on Adam Sandler’s continued downward spiral into low brow, lowest common denominator “comedy” “film” making with a nice hot meal, only to find I couldn’t taste anything and soon I couldn’t hear as the blood started pouring out of my ears. Goddamnit now there’s goo in my keyboard.
I knew Mike was full of shit when he mentioned becoming sentimental over something
I knew Mike was full of shit right when he mentioned becoming sentimental over something.
You know, ’cause we were all viewing the same pair of comments twice? …Or does “vu” in French already mean “view” in English?
Déjà = Already
vu = Seen
Ah, thank you. I refund to you one of my upvotes. I think it came from “Guest.”
fuckit, have another
The entire review clocking-in at under 3-minutes was a pretty good indicator, as well.
their reaction didn’t surprise me
Shame, I really wanted to hear them review Pacific Rim. Maybe next movie I see :
i wanna get chauklet wasted
In my eyes, there’s been blood loss and pain
I don’t know if I can face it again
Can’t stop now, I’ve watched these so long
To force this lonely laugh…
I’m getting chauklit wasted
I want you to kill me
I’m a flyover cow
I know you can milk me
This…. this is beautiful…
Chaw clit way stead.
I like how they used different costumes for this episode because they didn’t want to get their regular ones covered in fake blood.
FAKE blood!?! Now I’m disappointed.
PACIFIC RIM! 7/11/2013
This is perfect! It’s exactly what it needed to be! lol
Every sound is so dense, every sound has so much fork in the brain going on
I can’t give this enough thumbs up. Oh. My. God.
Ahhhh shit… We lost them.
Seek movie medical assistance immediately. Go watch “The Godfather”, STAT!
Why did you switch from using blip to youtube?I liked blip
They only do so, it seems, when they do short videos like this one.
I don’t think Adam Sandler used enough failed SNL friends in this movie. I mean, come on, what’s Ellen Cleghorne doing these days? Or how about Chevon Fallon?
The motto of the struggling hack is “I’m just happy to have the work.”
really glad to be working
I hope those were actual quotes from comment sections that they were saying there. Those sound like pretty typical Sandler defensive remarks from his fans who object to bad reviews.
The ending cracked me up loved it!
Adam Sandler: “HAH-HAW LAMBA LAMBA DOO!… now give me $20 million!”
Thank you for your avatar!
- “A song for me,
a song for you.
Let’s have a song
in a big brown shoe.”
- “This guy is brilliant, here’s 30 million dollars!”
Listen Jerky, I don’t need to talk to you!
Should I bring my fucking tools?
When the sarcasm started I couldn’t wait to see where they would go with it. I wasn’t disappointed. They can’t top this.
Hey, I like Mike’s blue shirt!
I wonder if the “CHAULKLET WASTED” bit is a reference to that scene in Jack and Jill when that cockatoo climbs into the chocolate fountain. Because he got wasted on chocolate. Or that the chocolate was wasted on a cheap gag.
It’s a reference to a dumb joke from the trailer for the first Grown Ups, in which the kids ask what “wasted” meansThen one declares she wants to get “chocolate wasted”. It’s retarded.
Man. I SAW Grown Ups 1 and I don’t remember that.
The brain will work pretty hard to repress memories like that. It’s a defense mechanism.
When the brain is being legitimately raped, the mind has mechanisms to shut down memory storage…
Holy Shit guys, that was awesome
Good stuff , fellas.
Given the opening, I don’t know what to think of the end.
I was like “Mike looks good in this new T-shirt, way to go, man!” and then it was all covered in blood T_T
So, my girlfriend and I went to see Grown Ups 2 (her pick). While I can’t say it’s the worst Sandler film – in terms of pandering, having hackneyed writing and storytelling elements, and the ever-prevalent and obvious corporate tie-ins, but I can say this – I thought about breaking up with my girlfriend immediately after she chose this movie.
“It’s not you, baby. It’s me.”
Your relationship can only end in pain and tears. For her – when you finally crack and psycho murder her because of the ungodly awful films she keeps recommending you both see. Best break up ASAP.
Otherwise, might I suggest a…
Fork in the brain.
Fork in the brain.

You are a fucking idiot if you paid to watch that piece of shit! It’s retards like you that mean he will make GU3 and yes, it is his worst ever movie because at least he attempted a shitty storyline with J&J. GU3 is just a series of retard-ass sketches containing his SNL buddies getting paid like $1m for 5 minutes fucking work where they probably improvised most of their shitty lines anyway just in case giving them something to do might constitute hard work.
Sandler is like a pimp who takes cash off punters up front before ushering them into a darkened room with promises of an insatiable cock-hungry whore lying in wait for them on the bed only for them to turn the light on to find a deflated rubber doll with jizz dripping from ever orifice and Sandler running down the street in the opposite direction laughing and counting their money.
That metaphor may work for people going to see one of his movies for the first time but doesn’t explain why other people keep returning to fuck the jizz filled doll.
“You are a fucking idiot if you paid to watch that piece of shit! It’s

He did it for his lady and the film nearly made him ditch the bitch, so calm down.
We can get rid of Sandler if you just PayPal me 4 million dollars; the account name is “nothisisNOTascamaccount@paypal.com.”
I WILL use dynamite.
Yikes. Did she think it would be a romantic comedy? Cause it certainly didn’t look that way in commercials.
You’re right. That did surprise me.
I got an Adam Sandler DVD a while back just to see what his films were like. “Click” because it has David Hasslehoff and a woman with big tits jogging. Chris Walken was in it too.
It was a very strange movie. I really don’t know what to think.
Maybe Sandler got the idea for the movie from this PORNOGRAPHIC COMIC STRIP:
I bet these HACKS never even watched “Grown Ups 2″.
How can you review a movie you didn’t even watch?!
Stick to “PACIFIC RIM”, you FANBOY NERDS!
nice try sandler
Wheres world war z? that movie was bad but not nearly as bad as any adam s movie
The new Wolverine movie was pretty good so HITB will hate it.
The movie takes a bit of time to show us stuff instead of fast cutting from start to finish so the audience doesn’t even have time to break wind. I almost forgot what that was like in a mainstream Hollywood movie.
So when you guys decide to move out of that set into a larger or better one, are you going to clean all the blood off the walls before you leave?
I find this review to be misleading.
What’s wrong with your face!!!!!
You guys need to watch this and review it for real…..I just watched it online for free because I’m a fucking masochist and it’s just as bad as “Jack And Jill”……90 minutes of retarded sketches and zero story. Your check-lists would be filled 5 times over. I can’t believe Steve Buscemi sold out to appear in this embarrassing piece of crap.
He’s in a lot of Adam Sandler movies ( I don’t know why); The Wedding Singer, Mr. Deeds, The First Grown Ups, Big Daddy, Billy Madison
I think he might like money.
He’s one of Sandler’s friends.
“Fuck you! It’s Adam Sandler!”
I figured they were vomiting up blood because they were drinking Stella instead of New Glarus.
$80m mofoing budget!!!! That’s not much less than the new Wolverine movie!
“The Conjuring” cost $13m and looks like it cost twice as much.
Is that true? $80m?
What a bunch of assholes.
This makes want a Subway footlong.
No World War Z review or Wolverine review. They don’t like “Wo” movies!
What’s the name of the music which starts playing @1.51?…I’ve heard it before in there vids and i really like it, so please could anyone out there tell me what its called.
Adam Sandler is the key.
“He’s a funnier character than we’ve ever had.”
It’s gonna be great.

The only thing that surprised ME was that baby blue shirt….wtf was that?
Should’ve added 10-15 minutes of a black screen or something to the end of this video to fool the regulars into thinking you guys really reviewed it. Just sayin’… next time…
Fork in the brain. Fork in the brain.
This video left me confused about their feelings on the movie. Vomiting blood implies they loved it, but crying blood implies they REALLY loved it. Having some intestines spill out of Jay’s nose would have made their level of appreciation clearer.
The most unbelievable thing about Grown Ups 2 is that Salma Hayek’s character is married to Adam Sandler’s character. I mean Come On…
I don’t know what you guys are talking about… the blue shirt was what he always wears. But what was up with Jay’s dark brown shirt? And since when did they bleach their skin and shave?
Still one of the best vids of 2013, I love showing it to people who are unfortunate enough not to digg RLM and see their little brains have a overload of WTF!
I do believe they are being sarcastic? LOL
