Monday Movies - Stop Calling Me Shirley

Feature Presentation...
MONDAY MOVIE MEME

This week Molly and Andy at the Bumbles Blog ask about our favorite spoof movies. My first reaction was, "I don't really watch spoof movies." But, on further reflection, I do watch them and I like them, a lot.

Here are my favorites:
  • Best in Show
  • The Princess Bride
  • Austin Powers
  • Blazing Saddles
  • Young Frankenstein
How about you?

Added: a classic clip from Young Frankenstein. I'm off to make espresso...

Oh wow - I haven't seen Young Frankenstein - what the hell is wrong with me?!?!?!

Best In Show would have made our list but Spinal Tap paved the way for that group. "Busy Bee" vs. "This One Goes To Eleven"

Ah, the Austin Powers series! Damn! That's a good one. I haven't seen Young Frankenstein either.

The Bumbles said...

Ah - thanks for the clip!!! My cat was very intrigued as well - every time Frankenstein got upset she wouldn't take her eyes off the screen.

Those are all good! I would have to add: Spinal Tap and Airplane.

I never saw Spinal Tap. Maybe I should...

The only one I've seen out of this group is The Princess Bride, and I love it. My kids are really into Shrek, which spoofs a lot of Disney movies.

I loved Shrek...especially Antonio Banderas as Puss in Boots! Great family film too.

Great list. I would mention all the Scary movies but I haven't seen any but only bits and pieces. and what about Airplane? It's been years since I've seen it.
