Yes people, this is a real review I once received.
Don't ask me what he was trying to say, I have no fucking clue.
So yeah, give me more stupid reviews folks, so I can make more crap like this. LAWLZ
So this is a pretty good take on how to respond to an abusive review. Yes, there is the cross icon, to report it as abusive, but then no-one would know about such a review (and such an appalling, but humorous one at that).
You have a great way of conveying what was funny about this review, from the voice acting through the little caption animations that accompanied the piece. I think it could have been made slightly better, if you'd have gone fro the animation and used subtitles, as opposed to drawing the animation over the top of the review text, as that interrupted my flow, as was reading through the text at the same time as the commentator was reading through it.
Very funny references put in there, especially the grammar nazi part, where you refer to his comment about "humours", which I found particularly amusing. I would ask that you please come up with the lighter alternative to this rather negative stereotype and show off some good reviews in a funny manner, such as this.

I found that to be quite a funny review actually.
Aniamtion: A review for a background, and then you kept adding in little silly graphics here and there making fun of the review.
Audio: Using your own voice, amazing.
Storyline: There is none for it is a silly review that some one did and you voiced it.
Overall: Lack of creativity but still very funny.

A cautionary tale of being a bad reviewer!
I must say I loved this, as I feel it highlights what can happen when you leave a pernicious, badly written, and poorly thought review.
The humor here is top notch, I love the narrator, as I feel he captures perfectly the nature of the malicious email.
The animation, and drawings were pretty weak, however I feel they added to the humor of the film.
There were somethings that could have been executed better, such as the way the the review was scrolling up, the whole page.
I would have placed a "mask" over half of the screen, placed the review under the mask layer, then tweened the review up that way.
This way you would be able to have your animations playing without the review as a distracting backdrop, I feel had you done this I would have enjoyed this a little more.
Still I think this was really funny, and I admire you were the big man and didn't reveal the person sent you this (although I do know who it was).

I really liked the style of animation that you used. It really wasn't the best, but it did match the overall feeling of the submission quite well. Another thing that was kind of questionable was the review that slowly went up. I actually liked that you had it go that way, but I think it would have been better to change the transparency of it so you could slightly see the animation going on behind it.
~ Story/Content ~
Ha, I always love the ones where people are making fun of dumb reviews. It just really goes to show how dumb some people are and how excited they get over the smallest things.
I felt that it was hard to read when you had the images popping in over the review. Perhaps there could have been a way to only have the images pop up over the part that wasn't being read at the time so it wasn't as distracting.

The voice acting was a nice tool to help with the humor. By the way I spelled humor right. On a normal submission this might not be the best voice acting, but very fitting for this piece indeed.
~ Overall ~
There were a few things that could have cleaned the submission up a bit, but it's always nice to make fun of bad reviews. :)
It was pretty good. Your animation was pretty smooth and the voice-over was quite amusing. I liked at the beginning where the rock fell down.
However, I didn't like how you scrolled the review screenshot over the animation until it took up the whole screen. I think the review should have taken up only part of the screen and stayed that size throughout the entire flash instead of taking up more and more space. I suggest maybe putting the review on one side of the screen, the animation on the other (maybe overlapping over at times) and then making the flash dimension bigger so you have more room. I don't know, just a suggestion.
Also, I think that you shouldn't have used a gradient on the badger, because the rest of the flash didn't use gradients and it looked a bit out of place.
