11 Best Movies Within Movies

Arnold Schwarzenegger IS Hamlet. 

What do you do when you have a movie concept that’s totally stupid and Brett Ratner‘s not available to direct it? You film a short scene from it and dub it satire by sticking it in the film you’re currently working on. Over the years, Hollywood has had fun at its own expense by exaggerating the cliches and tropes for which it is well known.

Here are 11 movies from other movies that I would pay full price for.

Simple Jack (Tropic Thunder)

In the hopes of winning an Oscar, Tropic Thunder’s Tugg Speedman goes a bit overboard in his portrayal of a mentally-retarded adult. Having not received the guidance of never going “full retard,” he put it all out there and doomed his career in the process.

Choice Line: Goodbye Momma. Now you can eat ice cream in Heaven.

You Just Don’t Exist (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World)

Chris Evans steals the show as Lucas Lee, the self-serious action star who Michael Cera must square off against. Just check out this scene from You Just Don’t Exist. Dude is not messing around.

Choice Line: The next click you hear is me hanging up. The one after that… is me pulling the trigger!
