Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)

Playing off: Star Wars, American Pie, Good Will Hunting, and much, much more.
Stars involved: All of them, really: Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Shannon Elizabeth, Will Ferrell, Mark Hamill.
Quote: “Not again!”

There are just so many meta-moments in this movie it’s nigh-on impossible to mention them all. For starters, there’s Jay and Silent Bob appearing as extras in the thankfully fictional Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season, featuring such incredible lines as “Applesauce, bitch!”, uttered after Matt Damon blasts someone in the chest with a shotgun, and “Think about the paycheque”, whispered by Damon as Affleck turns to shoot a scene, as well as Gus Van Sant’s line, delivered as he’s counting money in the director’s chair: “Jesus Ben, I said I’m busy!”

Then, of course, there’s the scene of scenes, where Mark Hamill plays Bluntman and Chronic’s nemesis, Cock Knocker, and fights the pair of them in a lightsaber duel. Needless to say, Silent Bob has The Force, Jay has a double-ended lightsaber, Cock Knocker has his giant hand sliced off, then says, straight to camera, “Not again!”

Also, just to make things even more meta, Hammill uses his Joker voice. You know, because he voices the Joker in the Batman cartoons (and, more recently, Arkham Asylum), which no doubt made so many geeks have so many nerdgasms it should probably be have been forbidden by the government.
