If you’re unfamiliar with ClickHole, it’s The Onion’s hilarious sister website that pokes fun at sites like Buzzfeed. But they don’t want us to think it’s all fun and games behind the scenes putting together so much artificially-hyped viral web content every day.
The Onion’s film critic Peter K. Rosenthal takes a look at the latest Toy Story film, comparing the CGI animated tale with its source material, a traditional German fairy tale “die Reise der Spielzeuge,” written in 1793. Needless to say that Disney Pixar’s version comes off as a little watered down.
Being forced to review the godawful looking Fifty Shades Freed throws The Onion film critic Peter K. Rosenthal into a serious existential crisis and downward spiral. The best part of this “review” is how little actual footage from the film you’ll be subjected to.
The Onion film critic Peter K. Rosenthal looks back at one of our all-time favorite Christmas movies, and contemplates what wonders the employees of the Nakatomi Corporation missed out on when their office Christmas party was rudely interrupted by an exceptional thief.
The Onion’s latest Sports Science parody reveals that synchronized swimmers are controlled by a hive mind. They are incredibly attuned to each other’s states and are ruthlessly devoted to perfection. Disobedience will not be tolerated. Resistance is futile.

(PG-13: Language) For The Onion, film critic Peter Rosenthal, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will never be as good as the first movie in the series. But he knows that for many horny teens, it – and heck, potentially any movie – will be their best movie ever.
“No one gets ahead without someone else falling behind.” Satirical film critic Peter Rosenthal shares his take on the original Back to the Future, arguing that it’s an indictment of Reaganomics. It’s like The Onion is trying to be funny but ends up keeping it real.
