Last Action Hero
Arnold Schwarzenegger considered “Last Action Hero” the beginning of the end of his film career. After a string of blockbusters, Arnold had a flop on his hands.
“Last Action Hero” — a self-referential parody of every action movie that made Arnold’s career — didn’t sit well with fans who didn’t know what to make of it. Oh, and it was competing with a little movie called “Jurassic Park.”
But there’s a lot to love about this cinematic oddity: intentionally painful puns, boundless cameos, purposefully ridiculous action sequences, and Arnold being Arnold.
Gene gets a little too cerebral. Kerri reveals her obsession with fart jokes and hatred for AC/DC, and Big D brings the best Schwarzenegger impressions in the business in this Big Gun of a Shat The Movies episode.
