    It's sad that movie spoofs suck these days. Remember when they were good?

    two words:

    Mel Brooks

    I love the Naked Gun too, but Mel Brooks movies take the cake when it comes to spoof movies. Space Balls, History of the World, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein.....all classics.

    Are you actually comparing Robin Hood: Men In Tights, to the classics like The Naked Gun and Young Frankenstein?

    Robin Hood: Men In Tights is as bad as the spoofs of today. Equally unfunny. Mel Brooks had lost it before Spaceballs.

    Yes.

    I like Stone/Parker and love South Park, but BASEketball is the Showgirls of the comedy movie world.

  16. Airplane
    Spaceballs
    Blazing Saddles
    Naked Gun
    Hot Hots
    Scary Movie 1 and 2


    Those to me are excellent spoof movies. The ones that we have today are horrible and made for the kiddies with ADD.

    Spoofs today are basically the equivalent of someone shatting on celluloid. Its just feces.
    Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Airplane were greatness.

    Airplane.

    I used to work on the live news show when I was in college, and we were so obsessed with this movie that we before every show we all say to each other on the headphones: "I just want to wish you all good luck. We're all counting on you," as many times as we could.

    We had an anchor practice an op-ed piece with: "They bought their tickets, they knew what they were getting into. I say, let them crash!"

    I've been out of college more than 10 years, and me and one of my school friends still randomly send Airplane jokes to each other. :oldrazz:

    Airplane 2 was great too, just for Shatner alone:

    The thing that made them so funny was that they didn't rely on pop-culture references. It was all plays on words that created so much classic dialogue that's still funny today.

    The problem with todays spoof movies isthat they are based on taking the soure material and making it look stupid. While the spoofs of yesterday were more of roasts than insults.

    And I dont think itwas mentioned but Wrongully Accused was pretty good too
