Hamlet 2 

Hamlet 2 is what happens when you mash up a genre spoof with one of those character-study comedies that derives its laughs from mercilessly filming ridiculous people who can’t help but make asses of themselves—think of it as a Christopher Guest movie informed less by This is Spinal Tap and more by the sensibilities of co-writer Pam Brady, who’s spent the majority of her writing career working alongside Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame. Brady wrote the movie with director Andrew Fleming, whose resumé seems comprised mostly of journeyman writer-director work and plenty of paying-the-bills fare. So there’s that, too.
