This is featured on the second DVD on the 2-Disc release of The Matrix Reloaded. It is a fantastic send-up, and I say that as a big fan of the franchise. This takes a couple of specific, very recognizable scenes and with a mix of, at times, incredibly spot-on points about the actual content of the sequences and regular jokes, many of which are based on taking the seriousness out of them. William Scott and Timberlake are both pretty good, Andy isn't bad, Sykes is great and Ferrell, in my opinion, is the strongest source of laughs in this. This is put together of newly shot material and clips from the film, and it tends to be convincingly edited and composited. This is just about ten minutes long. This is well-written and executed equally well. I would say that this can be enjoyed even if you don't care for the specific people performing in it. The jokes vary, in quality as well as type, including sexual ones, and a little gross-out comedy. The delivery seldom lets down. There is language, moderate to harsh, and for how short it is, there is arguably a lot. I recommend this to any fan of the series, and/or of the actors involved in this. 8/10
