I'll admit I went into this with pretty low expectations - overall, I'd say that it was good and had some interesting ideas that didn't fully deliver.

The exaggerated version of Nic Cage in this film was very enjoyable as a character, though I did not enjoy the mental projection of his character from "Face Off". I thought that him seeing this past version of himself did not add much to the movie other than being exceptionally weird.

Pedro Pascal & Nic Cage, however, had some pretty enjoyable moments early in the movie, unfortunately, most of them were spoiled in the trailer.

Of all the movies they poked fun at, I was surprised that there was almost no mention of "National Treasure" - one of his more recognizable films, I assume they could not get permission to make fun of his performance in it.
