I’m very confused as to where Fat Cat is, shouldn’t he be right there alongside the rest of the regular “cast”?

Oh, yeah, some of the tilted losers made it so obvious that the fact of Zipper’s movie VA significantly factored into their outrage.

Sweet F.A.
@Salamenace
Sorry, I didn’t see this earlier. I was posting my live reactions as I went through. I’ll try to keep it concise. I only have a little more left.
SPOILERS INBOUND:
Gadget and Zipper are such an uncanny couple. They have absolutely no chemistry, even in the movie. I think the filmmakers knew how off it was.
Oh, come on. The Mickey logo in the firework was a cheap gag.
A Jurassic Park reference, too. For no real reason other than “It exists.” And followed immediately by a Terminator 2 reference. I’m starting to see the later-era Nostalgia Critic comparisons.
I’m starting to get a headache because the constant references have me overstimulated. I can barely pay attention to the goddamn plot, as light as it is, because my brain is going, “Huh, there’s X, Y, and Z in this shot.” It was practically purpose-built for those “10 Hidden References You Missed In [Insert Movie Here]” videos. If you asked Doug Walker to reboot Rescue Rangers, he’d make this. I don’t know how he’d review it, though, since the film already comments on itself.
Oh my god. Ugly Sonic really does play more of a role in this movie than Gadget.
Ugly Sonic is such a weird joke. Like, the joke is that he exists, and that’s it. But who’s gonna get that joke five years from now? Hell, even today it’s a dated joke. The first Sonic trailer debuted in 2019.
That’s the thing with any humor: If it’s a joke that relies on the audience knowing current real life stuff to understand, then chances are it won’t hold up years on down the line. Like the ending of Two and a Half Men. Nobody is going to get it unless they are aware of the Charlie Sheen drama occurring at the time.
Was the polar bear a reference to something? It feels like with this film he has to be a reference, but I have no idea what.
It’s weird that they just straight-up forgot that Gadget existed in the climax. Especially considering that she literally only arrived in the third act.
You’ve got to be kidding me. They’re doing the “Oh no, Dale is dead” fakeout twice in the movie?
There’s Chip’s mom. I wonder if there’s porn of her yet. Funny, I always assumed that Chip and Dale were brothers.
And it ends with them lampshading the “Pop star does a serious take on the theme song” trope immediately right before doing it.
That’s the film in a nutshell, I feel. “Boy, bad rapping in films sure is bad. It’d be awful if we did bad rapping. Oh no, now we have to rap badly!” Saying X is bad and then doing X is not a joke. Or, well, it is a joke, but it’s too bad the punchline is everyone who paid to watch this movie.
Overall, that film was better than I expected, but that doesn’t mean it was very good. The references and reliance on nostalgia and self-aware humor really bogged it down, which is strange because when you strip them away, you’re left with a really basic, seen-before plot about the importance of friendship and teamwork. It is truly a very Doug Walker-esque movie, which blows my mind since it’s getting critical praise all across the board. But heck, at least Doug would be less likely to forget that over half of the main cast existed for most of the film. And for all his flaws, at least Doug is earnest and believes that what he’s doing is fine art. Chip ’n Dale: Rescue Rangers isn’t, and it suffers for it.
I’d actually argue that it’s an insult to the original Chip ’n Dale: Rescue Rangers show. And I’m not saying that from a stereotypical manchild nostalgia perspective, I’m saying that the way this movie is executed is an acknowledgement that a pure movie based on the Rescue Rangers cartoon wouldn’t be marketable. So instead we get all this meta-irony reference indulgence crap using Chip ‘n Dale as puppets. This movie could’ve been done with any old cartoon franchise. Imagine if they did this with DuckTales, or Bonkers.
I assume it’s only being praised because “Ooh, look how deep and clever this film is, making fun of Disney and movie tropes!” But, like, it’s still ultimately selling a product. It’s still arguing that copyright infringement is the same as human trafficking.
I give it 5/10 for some creative concepts and jokes and for the effort it took to animate it.

Seth Rogen joking about Seth Rogen’s cold dead eyes is funny as a meta gag, but doesn’t really hold up when 2019 Pumbaa’s eyes (and everything in the movie) are just as cold and dead.

The ponies are here!
I see they fixed the Two Applejacks error. I’m guessing that scene was unfinished in the trailer. Here, they look just like the movie, albeit smaller. My Little Pony, after all.

Dale’s rapping is so cringey, but it’s elevated somewhat by the fact that I know that Andy Samberg can rap well, so it puts it a step above Dee Dee Ramone’s.

It’s fitting that I pirated this movie to watch it.
Also, I don’t feel the need to say more about the whole Peter Pan/Bobby Driscoll thing, because everyone else has already said everything that needs to be said. It’s in poor taste and they should’ve known better.

The idea that bootlegging is such a big crime in this universe and is treated on the same level as dealing drugs really bothers me.
Like, you’d think that the worst thing that could happen to toons would be getting censored or something. Must be some of that Gisney propaganda slipping in.

Okay, is it just me or has Dale’s annoying level been amped up from the show? Like, I get the whole straight man, funny man dynamic, but he’s kind of insufferable.

Ugh, and immediately afterwards they take a swing at Alvin and the Chipmunks.
I mean, I guess I saw it coming from the trailer, but this movie hasn’t earned the right to make fun of the Alvin and the Chipmunks film trilogy, IMO.

This is just straight-up John Mulaney and Andy Samberg. Like, there’s a single job about them putting on fake chipmunk voices for their stage jokes, but I can’t unhear their actual actors.
It’s weird in context to the Roger Rabbit Universe, too. Do the actors (toons) and voice actors coexist? Like, is there a Chip and a John Mulaney walking around?

The “2D” animation in this movie is so weird looking. I already have mixed thoughts about the whole “Fake CGI pretending to be hand-drawn animation” trend of the past few years.

Watching the movie RN. 52 seconds in and there’s a joke about a furry female cartoon character going to school naked from the waist down. “You’re not Donald Duck. Put some pants on.“
I assume it only gets edgier from here on out.
