Scene 2

  • John Goodman's smoking a cigar (as producers with successful films tend to do) and being his best John Goodman.
  • The film's star watches himself on the big screen, but from behind the big screen so everything is backwards, including the intertitles. Some super meta stuff going on here.
  • The hero of the film escapes in an old-timey plane, heroine and dog in tow, as the orchestra belts out its glorious finale.
