Stephen Colbert loves going to the movies, but he’s unsure of which critics to trust. As he learned through a new Late Show sketch, sometimes the best critic is yourself.
Colbert transformed into Gil Peaches, a YouTube movie reviewer with the spoof online series Not at the Movies with Gil Peaches. With his cousin Bill Peaches, played by Seth Rogen, he tackles such titles as The Jungle Book, Captain America: Civil War, and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
Gil had something to say about everything, including Civil War, which he calls “a mixed bag.” He said, “The characters kept walking into scary places even though I yelled at them not to.” But he did appreciate how the theater lights were turned off to better see the screen.
Watch the duo talk about Bill Murray as a bear, those five-minute movies before the actual movie, and more.
