I was wheezing throughout the entirety of Death of Stalin. I've been trying to get my friends to watch it with me ever since.

Four lions is hilarious. Only the Brits manage to make a comedy out of a dim subject that works.

I know the Pink Panther movies aren't officially considered parody movies for some reason but I personally consider A Shot in the Dark a parody of murder mystery stories and The Pink Panther Strikes Again a parody of James Bond movies.

US make comedy. UK make Satire. Bar late Robin Williams, none of the current crop come near enough to match British humour.

Johnny English is one of the worst films I've ever watched
Monty Python the Flying Circus
7:53 and of course if Harrison had not got involved and set up handmade films we may never have had such classics as ‘The Missionary’, ‘Time Bandits’, ‘The long good Friday’, ‘A Private Function’ and ‘Withnail and I’

What about "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"? I actually think it's a million times better than "Life of Brian".

It's a terrific movie but not as well known and let's be honest not as polished as LoB.

No up Pompeii or up the front? Carry on doctor/nurse/matron, carry on up the khyber or up the jungle? The original St Trinians films (Alastair Sim will always be the best miss Fritton, sorry Rupert Everett your good just not good enough) where were they?
Mike Page
Mike Page Year ago
Not in living memory, are they? Not for enough people anyway. OK so nor is Strangelove but that has a cult following the others don't.

J0hNF_UK seems so. how johnny english managed to be in this lost is beyond me, it’s crap, the pink panther series of films is way better. i like hot fuzz, but to say it’s any better than carry on constable is a tough call. i think it’s a lot to do with age of the people watching, these are as you say for the trendy crowd, me i’m 40+ that grew up with the likes of carry on films, Frankie Howard in up pompeii and peter sellers pink panther films, those are funny.

This list is obviously for the, 'young, trendies', so films like the ones you mentioned would be deemed too old with people starring in them that the majority of youngsters won't have even heard of, never mind seen them in any films.
Daniel Cook

Not comedy or particularly funny if I'm honest but if your looking for dark then look no further than "in Bruges" brilliant film, both me and my girlfriend loved it

How can you do a top 10 of British Spoofs without including Whoops Apocalypse?
Bearded Ste

Yes, that's the one.
Isabelle Drennan
Bearded Ste ah right, yeah that rings a bell. Has it got rik mayall and richard wilson in it? I must be getting it confused with another film.
Bearded Ste
Bearded Ste Year ago
No, it's a cold war spoof with Peter Cook as the Prime Minister of England about to start a nuclear war over the kidnapping of a British Princess.

Bearded Ste is that the one where luke skywalker gets his head cut off?

Life of brian isnt exactly an attack on the bible. Its an attack on the idea of following for the sake of it. Thats the whole point of the film and what its trying to get across.

Well, there has been some disagreement among the Python team about that. Apparently there was a brief exchange that occurred when the surviving members reunited in Aspen, Colorado, in 1998. In the section where Life of Brian is discussed, Terry Jones says, *"I think the film is heretical, but it's not blasphemous."* Eric Idle can be heard to agree adding, *"It's a heresy." However, John Cleese, disagreed, countering, *"I don’t think it's a heresy. It's making fun of the way that people misunderstand the teaching."* Jones ten responds, by saying *"Of course it's a heresy, John! It's attacking the Church! And that has to be heretical."* Cleese replies, "No, it's not attacking the Church, necessarily. It's about people who cannot agree with each other."* In a later interview, Jones did however say the film *"isn't blasphemous because it doesn’t touch on belief at all. It is heretical, because it touches on dogma and the interpretation of belief, rather than belief itself."* At the end of the day though I suppose it boils down to how anyone as an individual interprets the movie. Personally I don't think the "blasphemous" although as an atheist I couldn't care less if it was. Heretical yes as Jones stated but it clearly doesn't mock Jesus but his followers.

Love the story about how Eric Idle was discussing the loss of funding for Life of Brian to George Harrison. Apparently Harrison read the movie and said "I want to see that!" and thus funded it. Awesome.

Spinal Tap, Airplane, Naked Gun, Postal...
Robert Polanco
@DanFarrell98 - Well, I am sure that there were some GOOD American films that were spoofs or satires. Like "Airplane" and "Top Secret," for example.

Better than the 'Scary Movie' franchise for sure. But back then there were 'The Player' and 'The Network'.

Hot Fuzz was fimed in and around Wells in Somerset, England. Some of the extras were actually local people from Wells. I know that because my father used to dtive the Somerfield delivery van that is shown in the back car park of the supermarket.

The pacing was poor but at its best was hilarious. Depended too much on performance, not enough on script.

@Pete Marr - I agree with you. That movie was pathetic.
