The film references the saying that inexperienced screenwriters or directors would pad a film with unnecessary dialogue, which bored the audience and prolonged the time before the exciting chase-scene.  "Cut to the chase"  was a phrase used by studio executives, meaning “don't bore us with the dialogue - get to the interesting scenes without unnecessary delay."

Cut to the Chase is a film crafted through images captured from a customised telecine apparatus and combines archival found-footage material with newly generated footage.
