8 Hilarious Comedy Movies Like The Angry Video Game Nerd

The Angry Video Game Nerd is just the beginning! If you loved watching this foul-mouthed nerd take on bad video games, get ready for a rollercoaster ride through our list of 8 hilarious comedy movies that will have you laughing out loud. From quirky characters to outrageous situations, these movies will keep you entertained and wanting more.

1) Nostalgia Critic

Nostalgia Critic, also known as The Nostalgia Critic, is a series that takes us down memory lane as a sardonic critic reviews movies and TV shows from his childhood and adulthood. While both Nostalgia Critic and The Angry Video Game Nerd share the common thread of reviewing, Nostalgia Critic expands its scope beyond bad video games. Instead, it delves into reviewing movies, TV shows, and even commercials from the 1980s, '90s, and beyond. The Nostalgia Critic's witty writing and clever editing make his episodes more than just a guy yelling at a camera. Additionally, Nostalgia Critic offers more than just exaggerated bad reviews, with his editorials and top 11 lists providing entertaining and insightful content. While some fans may have mixed feelings about the recent addition of subplots with supporting characters, the chemistry between Doug and his co-stars is undeniable.

2) James & Mike Mondays

James & Mike Mondays is reminiscent of The Angry Video Game Nerd because both feature James Rolfe and Mike Matei playing and reviewing video games. However, while The Angry Video Game Nerd is a scripted series with great humor and special effects, James & Mike Mondays is an unscripted show where the two guys sit on a couch and ramble. This contrast between the two shows is evident in the difference in content planning and the overall feel. James & Mike Mondays lacks the same level of compelling content and re-watch value as The Angry Video Game Nerd, leaving the impression that it exists primarily to generate YouTube views and engagement. As a long-time fan of James Rolfe, I feel that James & Mike Mondays doesn't fully showcase his talent and is ultimately a waste of his time.

3) Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie

Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie takes the foul-mouthed nerd's antics from the series and brings them to the big screen. While the original series had a runtime of 35 minutes per episode, this movie clocks in at a whopping 1 hour and 55 minutes. The plot revolves around the Nerd overcoming his phobia of the worst video game in the world to save his fans. The movie introduces a few new elements, such as a generic sidekick instead of the beloved Mike Matei, which leaves you wondering why they made that choice. The jokes in the film lack the punch and originality of the series, feeling more like tired fastballs from a pitcher with no zip. However, there are still a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments scattered throughout. Despite its shortcomings, the movie's plot is interesting and somewhat intricate, keeping you engaged. It's evident that James Rolfe's passion is present, and his influences shine through.

4) Board James

Board James, released in 2009, is reminiscent of The Angry Video Game Nerd for a number of reasons. Both are comedy series with a similar runtime, and they share the same creator, James Rolfe, and actor, Mike Matei. While The Angry Video Game Nerd focuses on reviewing bad video games, Board James takes a different approach by featuring James and his friends playing eccentric board games from their youth. Despite the difference in subject matter, the humor and vulgarity that made The Angry Video Game Nerd so enjoyable are present in Board James as well. If you're a fan of The Angry Video Game Nerd, Board James is definitely worth checking out. It's a hilarious and unique series that will keep you entertained with its nostalgic board game adventures.

JonTron takes you on a hilarious journey, similar to The Angry Video Game Nerd. Both shows revolve around reviewing games and movies, but with their own unique style.

Jon Jafari's wit and natural humor shine through effortlessly, leaving you in stitches from beginning to end. He combines his endless knowledge of video games with his talent for filming, editing, directing, and singing to create 15-minute gaming reviews that are pure gold. Plus, who can resist the watchful eye of his cyborg bird friend, Jacques? Although JonTron hasn't uploaded a new episode in nearly seven months, his old videos are a must-watch before his new material arrives. So, if you enjoyed The Angry Video Game Nerd, JonTron is the perfect show to keep you entertained with its unique blend of comedy and gaming reviews.

6) Pat the NES Punk

Pat the NES Punk. While not as foul-mouthed as The Angry Video Game Nerd, Pat the NES Punk offers a comedic take on reviewing video games, particularly those for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Pat brings his own unique style to the table, with elements such as the Completely Unnecessary Podcast, Flea Market Madness, and Ask Frank. Unlike the Nerd, Pat attempts to add a "plot" to his game reviews, which adds an interesting twist to the genre. With his jocky and bold personality, Pat isn't afraid to call out BS and invite controversy. Although the inspiration from AVGN is obvious, Pat stands out as the most unique of the post-AVGN retro reviewers. His special event NES Punk reviews are a great idea, and his humor is still on point. If you're looking for a fresh take on game reviews and a good laugh, give Pat the NES Punk a watch.

You Know What's Bullshit. A disgruntled man with a mound of cow dung for a head talks about various, everyday items, and how they are all, in fact, worthless. Reminiscent of The Angry Video Game Nerd, this series takes a caustic approach to review different subjects. While the Nerd focuses on bad video games, this show criticizes everyday items that are deemed useless. Both share a common theme of humorous criticism, but You Know What's Bullshit takes it to a new level with its absurd humor and cursing. Unlike the Nerd's long episodes, this show lacks in quantity, but makes up for it with its funny, intelligent, and important content. So if you want to learn a lot while being entertained, give this series a watch.
