This one is a strange Swedish film that has the premise that the terrorist in the movie "Die Hard" came through his tv. The terrorist morphs into various other characters from movies including Frigga from "Thriller" (and they actually got Christina to reprise her role however briefly), they did an Alien scene, and it even has Brandon Lee's last role. Thing is, this is very very cheap and although they did get many famous people doing cameos, he also had his friends dress up as the characters too making it feel cheaper. Also it looks like it was shot on a handicam, and often the jokes fail as much as they succeed. Many seem to really like this and perhaps it's partially lost in translation, but then again maybe it's just not all that funny either! Still a neat idea that if remade with a budget and a little more effort it could be good.
