Stay for the credits!

Most of the movie audience heads for the theater door when the credits start to roll, but true ZAZ cognoscenti just hunker down deeper into their seats: They know the best is yet to come. As Hitchcock's cameos served as his signature, the hilarious fake credits in ZAZ movies are the bad boys' own personal touch. And where these one-shot gags may zip past viewers on the big screen, video has a pause button that should definitely come in handy for that brownie-topping recipe at the end of Hot Shots!
