Parody film

A parody or spoof film is a comedy that satirizes other film genres or classic films. Examples include such films as Not Another Teen Movie, Scary Movie, This Is Spinal Tap, and Spaceballs. The five main conventions for this genre are:

  • Sarcasm
  • Huge stereotyping, e.g., the dumb blonde, the hardboiled detective
  • Mocking other films or scenes from serious movies
  • Violence with no consequence for characters' actions
  • Obvious meanings to characters' actions
