I feel like I did this comic before (if I did, please tell me!), but I always find it funny when there are TV spots for a movie that is probably not good. You can always tell because the reviews cited on the commercials are two words long at most such that they could easily be taken out of context. Past that, they’re also usually by radio stations of some sort which apparently are the lowest rung for critic reviews of movies. If the reviews are from prestigious publications, the narrator will usually make a point of it, so it’s quite easy to spot the times when the reviews are from less prestigious sources.
