When his best friend, Nick the projectionist, gives him a magic ticket to the new Jack Slater movie, Danny is transported into Slater's world, where the good guys always win. One of Slater's enemies, Benedict the hitman, gets hold of the ticket and ends up in Danny's world, where he realizes that if he can kill Schwarzenegger, Slater will be no more.

When Danny and Jack are looking in the video store for the action section to find a "Schwarzenegger" movie. Danny is surprised and confused to see that Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)'s poster features Sylvester Stallone, and that apparently Schwarzenegger movies do not exist. However, as Jack walks towards Danny to compliment Stallone's work, on the shelf alongside several other known Hollywood movies of the time, a VHS tape of one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's earlier movies Raw Deal (1986) is clearly visible, with Arnold featuring prominently on the cover.

Great movie! Those who hate it just don't understand the joke.
Okay folks, this movie is what's called a spoof, send-up, parody, satire, or all of the above. If you were expecting a serious action movie, well DUHHHH!! No wonder you hated it!
I happen to think that it is real clever that Arnold was willing to spoof the genre that he had been trapped in for most of his life. So few actors are willing to do that, even in a bit of fun. Acting is a job, but it's supposed to be fun as well. Not every movie we see is meant to win an oscar. They are just entertainment. Take it for what it's intended.
This movie is on my top five of my favorite Arnold films, because of it's boldness, and the fact that Arnold can be really funny when he wants to be. It's on my top twenty favorite comedy movies, and it's also in my DVD collection. Don't worry Arnold. Your true fans love this movie.
