Re: Shane Black might write and direct "Iron Man 3"
A lot of the movie's silliness inside the "movie world" is meant to be a parody of your typical "Arnold action movie", which it feels like people just ignore.
No, I think that's obvious. It's just that some of the slapstick doesn't work and isn't funny (in my opinion of course). It's a problem of execution rather than concept. The original script had the same framework, but was more subtle and clever in the element of parody within the movie world.
