What Does “No, Go and Routh” Mean In Our Reviews?

If you’ve watched one of my video reviews, or listened to us review a flick on The Audio Edition, you’ve probably heard us judge films based on a scale of “No, Go or Routh”. No obviously means “Don’t see this movie”. Go means “Yeah, go see this movie”… but what on earth does “ROUTH” mean?

A lot of people always ask me this question… so I thought I’d try to explain it.

Many months ago on The Audio Edition, Darren, Doug and I were talking about a hilarious (and true) story about how the studio execs thought Brandon Routh’s (the new Superman) “Bulge” (you know what I’m talking about), was TOO BIG and that it was a distraction. They got a special effects company to DIGITALLY REDUCE the size of Routh’s package on screen.

We howled at this (come on… it’s HILARIOUS!). I believe Doug then mention that “Routh is indeed the complete PACKAGE!” We laughed some more. And then… HISTORY HAPPENED!

Darren then suggested that since Routh is indeed “The Complete Package”, we should invoke his name whenever we see a movie that is “The Totall Package”. Hence from that day forward, whenever we thought a movie was great… we would say it was “ROUTH”.

So there you have it boys and girls. The mystery is revelaed. Our terminology for movie greatness is a reference to Brandon Routh’s package… the envy of every man. Come on… wouldn’t you love to tell some girl: “Yeah… I’m so big they had to digitally REDUCE me so I wouldn’t be a distraction”? All Hail Routh!
