Last Action Hero

Question: All of the actors in this film are actually credited as either themselves, or their character in the Jack Slater films (eg. the reporters recognise Tom Noonan as himself at the film premiere). However, the actress playing Whitney is actually called Bridgette Wilson, not Meredeth as Danny points out. Why was this?

Chosen answer: Most likely, she was not a well-known enough actress to have name recognition like Arnold.

Brian Katcher

Question: During the sequence where Schwarzenegger plays Hamlet, one of the knights looks remarkably like Robin Williams. Who plays him?

Chosen answer: Since there was no name in the credit for this character, we do not know. However it did not look like Robin Williams to me.

Question: Why were all the women wearing latex outfits in the movie? Is it supposed to be a futuristic society or what?

Chosen answer: No, it's a movie world. All the women are beautiful and wear very tight clothing. There's a cartoon working for the police, all phone numbers begin with 555, guns make cars explode etc, etc. Basically, every action movie cliche you've ever seen is true here.

Question: Does anyone know the name of the song played in the very beginning of the movie (intro with the police cars)?

Chosen answer: It is Angry Again by Megadeth.

Question: On IMDB it says in this film there are some INTENTIONAL continuity errors. Does anyone know any of the intentional errors, perhaps along with a timecode?

Chosen answer: The kid points them out in the film, in order to convince Arnold's character that he inhabits movieland. Also, after Arnold's character falls into the tar pit he is able to completely wipe himself clean, an obvious intentional continuity error.

Quotes

Arnold Schwarzenegger: The studio should let me know when they are planning a stunt. You know, you are the best celebrity look-alike I've ever scene. If you get to Los Angeles, call my office. We can get you shopping center openings.
Jack Slater: Look, I don't really like you. All right? You brought me nothing but pain.
