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.

What about lock,stock and two smoking barrels ! It's hilarious, British comedy at its finest...
Jared Griffiths
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.

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

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.

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.

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.
alphadawn2015 lennon
i always thoguht it mocked people, and how easy they are to jump on a bandwagon without any actual proof of anything of a higher order
Robert McElwaine
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.

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.
