Absolute must-see for film buffs: Movie Movie
If you truly enjoy movies and watch a ton of them, then you absolutely must see Movie Movie. The title is a pun of sorts: a “movie movie” is a movie about the movie business, which this is; and in this case it also notes that the “movie” is a double-feature (with coming attractions). It’s a comedy, and it’s the kind of parody that can be done only by insiders totally grooved into the era and its entertainment. The loving and careful eye for detail provides a wonderful springboard for the jokes from slight exaggeration to outright caricature to meta-jokes: the kind of insider humor as when the comedian fails because he’s making the band laugh (meaning it was way above the heads of the lay customers).
You watch it—carefully—and you’ll see what I mean. And it’s enjoyable making the connections and unraveling the hidden structure of studio politics.
