30+ Best Parody Movies of All Time
Smriti Razdan
Hello! I'm Smriti, computer applications graduate, currently exploring my interest in writing. Besides writing, I am quite fond of reading too. There is this unquenchable thirst in me for reading undiscovered stories and more. It is amazing how I can live someone else's life as my own. I have been to places I haven't seen with my eyes, yet. And for me, that is one of the most beautiful things in the world.

Same story with the same characters but a lot funnier and with more waves of laughter.  Don’t you just love parody movies? We know you do and if you are looking for some spoof, you came to the right place.

Having seen many parody comedies myself, I must say they are a lot funnier than the original ones. It is a sub-genre of comedy and is usually made to make fun of or comment on the first piece. The concept of spoof began in almost the 1900s and is kept alive with the laughter of the audience. The art of this genre doesn’t only involve copying comedy movies. It also involves making spoof the most serious stuff out there and making it into something completely hilarious.
