When a rookie filmmaker with the unfortunate name Alan Smithee realizes he's an unwitting studio puppet, being forced to make a big-budget action movie, he knows is horrible, he steals the master reels and tries to make a deal.
After Arthur Hiller had his credit changed to Alan Smithee, the Director's Guild of America unregistered the name Alan Smithee. This is the last movie to ever bear that pseudonym.
The great thing about this movie, Arthur, is that it sticks up for directors. It really does.
Arthur Hiller: The last thing that the Directors of America need, Joe, is for you to be sticking up for them!
Various extra scenes and outtakes during the end credits.
