The Original: Arnie sends up his action-star persona, with this inventive blend of metaphysical musings and crowd-pleasing explosions. Odd, but undeniably good fun. The Sequel: A Charlie Kaufman-directed exploration of the self, in which Arnie’s character Jack Slater must come to terms with the fact that he is a fictional character. Whilst blowing some more stuff up, obviously.
Essential Scene: Slater mopes his way through his latest film, half-heartedly punching some villains as he contemplates his lack of free will.
Essential Dialogue: Okay, this is from the first film, but we love it so much, we want it repeated. “You want to be a farmer? Here’s a couple of acres!” shouts Arnie, before booting his enemy in the balls. This will never not be funny.
