At the beginning of the movie, Andy appears, criticizing the movie as "so stupid" and "terrible," and complains about the movie's events being changed for dramatic purposes. He then says that he has "cut out all the baloney," making the movie "much shorter. In fact, this is the end of the movie." To get the audience to leave, he cues up a record, and the end credits begin to roll, through the cast list, stunt performers, unit production manager, first assistant director, and second assistant director.
