Son of Rambow (2007)
Title on marquee when Lee is brought to the theater
Didier compares himself to Patrick Swayze in this film.
When Lee is isolated by teachers he sits in the corridor bouncing a ball against the wall - just like Capt. Hilts in The Great Escape.
The DVD is seen
Lee watches a clip of Jan Pinkava winning the Young Film-Makers Competition on the show.
The main characters are seen watching the film in a theater and on video, and are inspired to make their own action adventure movie.
