The Critic and Nostalgia Chick review FernGully: The Last Rainforest (1992). They comment about the film's preachy attitude, uninspired characters and some scientific and geographical inaccuracies. The Chick also coins the term "Big-Lipped Alligator Moment" in this episode, used to describe a scene in a film that comes out of nowhere, has no bearing on the plot, is completely odd and over the top, and is never referred to again. In this case, the term is used for a random scene featuring a singing goanna, that is voice by Tone Loc, who wishes to eat the film's main character Zak.
