The French Lieutenant's Woman is being watched at my homestead, entirely against my will.

 

It blows.

 

Anyway, It's a movie within a movie. The characters are making a movie. And that's the movie.

 

The only other cinematic "turducken" I can remember is Day For Night.

 

Can you think of any others?

the PRT is not somewhere to drop my morals and ethics and roll in the mud and muck and pretend those I am talking to aren't really people at all and it's alright to treat them like dirt.

Do plays within plays count?  No?

 

Oh well, what about

 

"The Purple Rose of Cairo"?

Canada's own "Strange Brew"?

"The Player"?  Robert Altman at his cynical best.

Seinfeld had a few episodes where they made a sitcom. My attention span is too short to watch movies.

There was The Cameraman, that 1920's Buster Keaton movie which I'm sure you've all seen. 

 

Buster plays a movie projectionist who falls asleep and dreams himself into the movie he was showing.

Noises Off - but that's a play about putting on a play.

If it was also made into a movie?  Yes?  A Midsummer Night's Dream. :D

I'd forgotten about a lot of these.

Pale Fire by Vladamir Nabokov is a **** fine novel buried in a poem.

The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon has an extended play within the novel.

I like crappy horror/crime novels, and a lot of them are about writers trying to write novels and mixing with nasty killer-folk. Misery by Steven King. The Hook by Donald Westlake. Worst Nightmares by Shane Briant. The Death List by Paul Johnston.

Great movie. Classic sketches.

 

I fear though that the Guggenheim/Arquette sketch has become reality.

 

Velma!!!
