No offense, but was that NC type rant really necessary?

Yes, I'd say it was. This is perfect Nostalgia Critic material if it wasn't from 2003.

Rob Walker told me last year that him and Doug were actually going to review Back in Action, but opted not to because of the heat they took for reviewing TMNT, which was still a fairly recent movie (even though most fans were the ones who badgered Doug to review TMNT in the first place, but whatever).

That, and they didn't find any major flaws to pick apart in the film.

"I must defend the remarkable prescience of the Hanna-Barbera writers. In the early 1960s, they dreamed up a futuristic world that seemed impossibly beyond our reach. Their creativity predicted the microwave oven, slide walks, smart phones and robot teachers. All these inventions are now routine realities of the 21st century." - Janet Waldo (LA Times, 2011)

That's really interesting. I was considering starting to do Nostalgia Critic-style reviews this summer as The Nostalgia Teen reviewing movies from the mid 90's to mid 00's and Looney Tunes: Back in Action was one of the films I was really aiming to review early on. Now I guess I have to give it a second thought. :\

Well, I do think that scene was funny, but it also went on a little bit long.

That reminds me of the infamous "rural purge" which axed The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, even the still high-rated Red Skelton Show. just because they served a very small demographic. Even for me, it looks like a more plausible cause for the lack of interest of WB to market the movie.
