Yes, it’s totally narcissistic. Yes yes, it is Bill and Ted and Wayne’s World. Yes, it’s a movie about movie characters made by people who play movie characters in their own movies. Yes it’s a chance for a bunch of Hollywood buddies to get together and make a movie about Hollywood buddies.
But it’s in a long line of films which did that, and it evoked memories of Blazing Saddles, Animal House and a bunch of stuff I really enjoyed.
And so I enjoyed it. And it made me laugh.
