If I may be honest, I have been feeling a little under the weather these past few days, hence why I haven't been doing much of creative writing. It takes a lot of energy, believe it or not. So what I've been doing instead was just sitting back and indulge myself in a string of Frasier reruns as well as some movies (surprise, surprise). Well, you know what they say, nothing lifts a heavy heart like a laugh can... Or something to that effect.
So I browsed through the internet for some of my favourite comedy movies and I stumbled upon a subgenre that I had long forgotten; Parodies, or spoofs. I think it had a lot to do with the fact that they hardly make those anymore. Whenever they tried, the best that they can come up with was Epic Movie , which was horrible to say the least. And no, I didn't like Scary Movie  all that much either.
|For once, it wasn't false advertising. The movie was indeed a disaster...|
Honourable Mentions: The Nude Bomb , The Naked Gun movies, Spaceballs , Shaolin Soccer , Kick-Ass 
#5 Airplane! 
Purists are going to kill me for this, placing this movie at number five instead of the top spot because arguably, this was the movie that started it all. Or at least the one that brought the subgenre to prominence the same way Nirvana's Nevermind brought Grunge music from Alternative rock to the mainstream. But being number five is in no way a discredit to how funny this movie is. It's just that I didn't get the chance to see this movie until I was in my mid-teenage years, and I have grown to like other movies of this genre.
#4 Hot Shots: Part Deux 
#3 The Other Guys 
#2 Hot Fuzz 
At first glance, this second collaboration between Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright may appear to not fit the mold of parody movies. In fact, I myself had to stop typing for a while as I lean back to consider if Hot Fuzz was actually a spoof. Just like The Other Guys, this movie was solid enough to be taken as it is (That moment when Simon Pegg flying-kicked an old lady in the face pretty much defined the movie as a whole). But once you realise that it sought to poke fun at every Buddy Cop movie in existence, a whole new layer of funny opens up.
#1 Robin Hood: Men In Tights
