So, turns out Max Landis (son of famed filmmaker John Landis) is a pretty big fan of professional wrestling. And for some unknown reason he decided to do an oral retelling-slash-documentary of the entire career of professional wrestler Triple H… and then film recreations of it using an almost-all-female cast. The results are not 100% accurate, but they are pretty frikkin’ funny. It stars Chloe Dykstra as HHH and Ana Walczak as Shawn Michaels.
There is also a veritable who’s-who of cameos, from the Mythbusters to Seth Green and Macaulay Culkin. Anyway, just watch it if you’ve got a spare half-hour:
There are some events fudged around and some glossed over, but Landis makes some interesting points about the nature of character development and serial entertainment. Anyway, I enjoyed it. So shut up.
