Summer is over—time to get back to evil school with Harry, Hermione, Ron, Sirius Black, Mrs. McGonagall, Filch, Splat, Wang, Timothy Q. Diaperhat, Professor Waddle Von Funkenskull, The Right Reverend Boo Smoothandle, Dr. and Mrs. Walrus V. Chowderboot and all the rest! This time around (the 6th, if we’re not mistaken) Harry must battle an ancient curse and the desire to play Quidditch for three quarters of the film. Ron, in the meantime, discovers that his face is capable of hideous contortions as yet unexplored, Dumbledore awakes to find that he’s gained a good deal of weight, and respected actress Emma Thompson sets out to prove that the respect is wholly misplaced.
Thankfully, this movie has been certified 100 percent Dobby-free!
Mike, Kevin and Bill wave their wands at the screen—and the result is magiclarious!*
*We think that means magic and hilarious, but our research team is still working on it.
[Knight Bus arrives] Aw hell. We’re gonna have to hop aboard for whimsy, aren’t we? ‘Fraid so. Better gird your loins for some wizardly hijinks.— Rifftrax,

[re: Monster Book of Monsters] Ah, I know what it is now. I’m afraid to ask. It’s a collection of biting satire. [sigh]— ,

[re: stormy quidditch] Sir! A student’s just been struck by lightning! Should we consider rescheduling the meaningless intramural game? Never! … Perhaps it might be possible to use magic to prevent this! When pigs fly!— Rifftrax,

So, you need parental permission to go to the toffy shop, but for quidditch: the less parents know, the better.— Rifftrax,

Do you think Harry gets tired of always being wrong about everything? These movies really prepare kids for married life. Don’t they?— Rifftrax,
