10 Hilarious Spoof Movies You Should Watch
Spoof movies, when you hear it, you already feel the torturous sting of such parodies like “scary movie”(from one to fifteen), “epic movie” or “disaster movie”. The post-modern era of parodies today has reached an impact where it changed comedy for the basic worse. But there was such a sweet time spoof and comedy was well-established so if you think of watching a classic parody, here are some recommendations!
10. Austin Powers
The Movie: Austin,a British spy who goes through all types of adventures and missions to bring his Nemesis-Dr.Evil- to justice.
Why it’s great: Straight from the mind of the creatively enthusiastic Mike Myers, this film is the most recent on this list and a movie that sparked major box-office successes (forget about the third one). These films poke fun at the outrageous plots, rampant sexual innuendo, floppy stock characters, the 1960s spy film cliche of the ultra-suave male superspy. This film parodies franchise men like James Bond, Derek Flint,Jason King and Matt Felm within its overly dramatic sequences, random song and dancing sequences, the cliche sexism and arch-villains. This film is full of laughs to (maybe) a point of insanity from showing ‘maybe’ James went too far and such major pop culture mimics and jokes.
9. Top Secret!
The Movie: Parody of WWII spy movies in which an American rock and roll singer becomes involved in a Resistance plot to rescue a scientist imprisoned in East Germany.
Why it’s great: This movie truly is another great work from David Zucker and Jim Abrahams team. In some scenes you will laugh so hard that you have to pause the movie, laugh for five minutes then play it again. Also, Val Kilmer does a great acting for his first movie! It’s usually overlooked, curiously enough, when talking about the great comedies, but there’s no doubt about it, “Top Secret!” IS one of the great comedies of our time.
