Not bad, not bad

This comes perilously close to the Freiberg/Seltzer maxim of "Recognition = Parody," but the details redeem it: the economic doomcasting used in place of review blurbs, the handheld camera authentically mirroring specific shots from the movie, the masterstroke casting of Alyssa Milano as Marisa Tomei, and the Uncle Sam conceit itself. Springsteen ensures that this carries most of the pathos of the original trailer, too.
