One of the best of its kind
2 January 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I personally love that this is the only thing on the DVD that the menu does not give a description of, beyond that it is six minutes long. A few seconds into it, you realize that it is one of the MTV Movie Awards film parody. Going on Cruise doing almost all of his own stunts in the flick, this gives him a fake double, and Stiller(who gets to do his spot-on impression again, after doing it in the early 90's in his self-titled show) plays it like a psycho stalker. Everyone who appears in this(including Woo) does a great and entirely credible performance, and the material is just about invariably hilarious, jokes and sight gags alike. Also, today this is funny in a different way, with Tom saying "he's harmless", now that he is known for the Scientology praising and the time he guested on Oprah, now immortalized in Scary Movie 4. This is well-edited and sharp, and it doesn't wear out its welcome. The pacing is spot-on, nothing lasts too long and it doesn't speed ahead, either. The concept is potentially disturbing, but there is no language, and the violence is brief and clearly intended to hold comedic value. I recommend this to everyone who enjoys these spoofs, and has at least a basic knowledge of TC's career. 8/10
