Fair to say.  I couldn't believe it when, seconds after the second Gamergate reference, they let a "Shut up, Wesley!" line go completely untouched.

I really wanted a "Shut up, Wesley!" too. :(

I learned that this movie has quite a lot of Canadian bacon in it. Especially trying to pass off Toronto as New York City and a VIA rail terminal as American. I also learned that there was quite a bit of product placement here, even in the closing credits. How much of that paid for Meat Loaf's appearance?

I learned that the kid who played Wesley would end up in Mean Girls almost 10 years later as "Farting" guy! Now THAT'S a career arc!

I also also also also also learned that there's apparently a requirement to crowbar in a reference to Gamergate somewhere in every single VOD.

I thought it had been a little while since the last one (maybe I missed a few).  In any case, it wouldn't feel so awkward and forced if the all the jabs weren't so hopelessly misinformed and blatantly one-sided.

Not to mention that Gamergate was like was like 2 years ago. And still making jokes about it.
