Movies within movies can be a tough to pull off. Faking a real production means that you have to put the same amount of care as you would into a real film. If you miss the mark, it’ll seem out of step with the rest of the movie, but if you get it right, it could become a seamless addition or it could spawn a life of its own. This four minute supercut is a pretty solid look at great fakes to hit the big screen.
You’ll find a lot of your favorites within, including “Brock Landers: Angels Live In My Town” starring Dirk Diggler from “Boogie Nights“; “Satan’s Alley” from “Tropic Thunder“; “Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season” from “Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back,” and beyond. I could just sit here listing them, or you can click below and get things started with “Amistad II.”
