Team America, yes, funny, funny, funny but also Galaxy Quest. Possibly my favourite film of all time!

Apart from many already mentioned:
- UHF (Weird Al Yankovic) high point: Conan the Librarian...
- Kentucky Fried Movie
- The Rutles - All You Need is Cash (more a mockumentary, maybe not quite suitable for the thread?)

I would have to include Mel Brooke's "Dracula, Dead and Loving It". The film is full of fun, especially where van Helsing {Brookes ] stands well back from vampire Lucy's coffin to avoid the flood of blood when she's staked throug the heart .

When Renfield, Dracula's servant, accidentally lets the sun shine on the Count, Dracula { Leslie NIELSEN } disintegrates, calling out, "Renfield, you ass......".

Caradale, LOVED Young Frankenstein,- especially Cloris Leachman, who played the scarey housekeeper.( The horses where afraid of her, when her name was mentioned) Priceless..! Do you also remember Sherlock Holmes Smarter Brother? Again, Gene Wilder, Marty Feldman and Dom Delouise...

While we're in a horror phase I'd nominate Dance of the Vampires AKA (The Fearless Vampire Killers) and Theatre of Blood. In the latter the way the smug theatre critics were bumped off in updates of Shakespeare were very funny, especially the one scene in which scorned actor Vincent Price donned an afro and medallion to play a gay hairdresser called Butch in order to electrocute a woman critic who thought she was about to have her hair done (an update of Joan of Arc being burnt at the stake in Henry VI).

And Marty kept saying her name to hear the horses panic again - very funny.

As to Marty FELDMAN, there has been a mis-conception [ pun intended ] that the rather delightful actress Fenella FIELDING [ Carry On Screaming ] - "Do you mind if I smoke" - is/ was his sister. Apparently this is not the case.

Remember Dance of the Vampires. Polanski directed and was in it too . As was the ill-fated Sharon Tate. Weird film.

Nurse Ratched was in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, but I remember Cloris Leachman in High Anxiety as the nurse with the severly boxy boobs!

Young Frankenstein is Mel Brooks' best spoof.

For me the best spoof film ever must be 'This is Spinal Tap'.

DB Edwards says:
A toss between Mel Brook's THE PRODUCERS and YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN.


And Gene Hackman (as the blindman says), "Stay won't you? I was going to serve cappuchino!"

Goodfellas. I honestly thought it was a spoof when I first watched it. "they would stay up all night playing cards and no one ever called the cops". Wo, scarey darey.

Agree Shaun of the Dead was pretty great, but according to Peggy, it wasn't a spoof. It was a real zombie movie with some comedy in it, though the 'white lines' scene looked a bit spoofy, and so did lots of others. So maybe he's talking out of his crack.

Donald Edwards, - Young Frankenstein, - absolutely brilliant, apart from 'Sherlock Holmes Smarter Brother', especially with Dom Delouise being a baddy..:-)

Does anyone remember Cry Wolf? It was shown as a support film to either Airplane or Young Frankenstein, and the hero was a scientist called Jack Russell, who changes into a dog thanks to a mysterious potion.

I always thought about this when the cricketer Jack Russell was mentioned on sports news!

Was there a film called 'The Shaggy Dog'?

Fred McMURRAY had a ring with the inscription IN CANIS TRANSMVTO { or would that be mutto } which turned him into an English Sheepdog. I recall seeing a car being driven by the dog.

We've got to include Leslie NIELSEN's ' Naked Gun' movies.

I always love the scene where Priscilla PRESLEY is up a ladder and DREBIN looks up her skirt. "Nice beaver", he says and she replies that she's just had it stuffed. She then descends the ladder carrying a stuffed beaver.

Nah, you're all missing THE best one - 'What's Up Doc'

Posted on 20 Feb 2012 23:37:05 GMT
Definitely Galaxy Quest - brilliant homage to all things Star Trek.

I can't make up my mind on this one. It has got to be either Blazing Saddles or High Anxiety - with apologies to Airplane !

Then there's the Errol FLYNN Robin Hood saga and its descendants getting the Mel BROOKE's treatment with 'Men In Tights' .

"Every time they make a new Robin Hood film they burn our village down".
"Leave us alone Mel BROOKES" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
