A critic is a low-life creature that lacks any talent or ability to contribute anything, yet chooses to verbally attack and put down the works of others. Through usage of long words and general pretenciousness, they pretend to show intelligence and also to appear human like the rest of us, hiding their true parasite form. Everyone has, and is entitled to, an opinion, but a critic makes it their businness to state their opinion to everyone through the media or press, and to state their opinion as fact. If your a musician, film-maker, artist, writer etc, and you see a professional critic writing a review about you, do the right thing and kill them where they stand. If you want to know if a film or band etc is any good, don't read the reviews, ask a friend what they think.
Stephen Fry on Art Critics:- "Imagine, you get to Heaven and St Peter asks what you did with your life and you say, 'Oh I just said what other people did wrong!'"

A phrase uttered after one has usually lambasted or insulted someones life or lifestlyle. This is pure sarcasam at its best, and if used properly makes the person feel confused, and unsure of what you just told them. The term always means you are actually being overly critical and are just trying to defuse a small amout of your criticism.
dude 1 : How did you like my new girl?

dude 2 : I knew her in high school she used to be a real slut.

dude 1 : What the fuck is that supposed to mean?

dude 2 : Not to be critical, just sayin.

dude 1 : oh, allright it"s cool.

dude 2 *shakes head in disbelief*

What the majority of the people in the world can't take.
Let's use music as the criticism here:
Criticizer: Personally, I think your vocal range is a bit limited.
Person Who Can't Take Criticism: ppfft stfu u cant do better at all
Criticizer: Does that matter? Since when did pointing out another person's flaws mean you had to be better than that person?
Person Who Can't Take Criticism: always

The act of pointing out flaws in a person/work/event. As it turns out, a lot of people tend to handle this quite poorly. Over-inflated ego may have something to do with it.
Critic: Your performance was very impressive! However, there are a couple minor nitpicks I have-
Narcissist: Why don't you fucking do it if you're so goddamn smart, huh!?
Viewer: Oh, whatsamatta with you? Can't take a little criticism?
Critic: No shit.

A critic is someone who has no discernible talent so tries to make someone else feel as useless as he/she is.
Critic 'Dude, you SUCK at guitar'
Billy 'Oh, so I guess you're a guitar genius then?'
Critic 'No, I can't play guitar'

A cartoon during the mid 90's that was, go figure, cancelled by FOX. More great cancelled shows include Futurama, Life with Louie, The PJs.

The Critic was about the life of Jay Sherman(voiced by Jon Lovitz) who lived in New York City. He was a fat, bald movie critic who never gives a positive review. He has basically no friends and everyone hates him. Each episode had a parody of a movie Jay was reviewing that were usually 2 or 3 years old. It was probably FOX's biggest mistake cancelling it. Now they broadcast dogshit like American Idol and reruns of Becker. It only had 2 seasons.
The Critic was one of those cartoons everybody could enjoy, much like the Simpsons(it even had some of the same producers). It was funny but no too over the top. Why this show was cancelled is beyond me.
