''Mom and Dad Save the World'' is a 1992 film parody of ''Film/{{Flash Gordon|1980}}'' which stars Creator/JonLovitz, Teri Garr, Creator/JeffreyJones, Creator/EricIdle, Thalmus Rasulala and other actors. Lovitz plays Emperor Tod Spengo, who is the cruel, silly and over-dramatic emperor of the planet named Spengo (which had been named Spango until Spengo conquered it and renamed it after himself). Teri Garr plays Marge Nelson and Jeffrey Jones plays Dick Nelson, her husband.

Emperor Spengo, with General Afir at his side, takes over a small planet at the edge of the galaxy populated entirely by idiots, and renames it after himself. He orders that all the resources of the planet should be engaged to create his "Super Death Ray Laser". The laser's purpose is to destroy Earth, thus making Spengo the greatest planet in the Universe. When Emperor Spengo looks at exactly where his Laser would strike, he sees Marge Nelson exercising -- and falls in love.

*** Though even they may be exaggerating. King Raff, when his intelligence is returned to normal, is able to speak in technical terms ("I have reversed the polarity of the Magno-Beam. I will return you to your planet forthwith and in great haste."), and General Afir is anything but stupid, though he could be the OnlySaneMan.

Even Spengo himself was clever enough to take over an entire planet, and occasionally speaks in technical terms himself.

Added DiffLines:

* WhatTheRomansHaveDoneForUs: Spengo tries to invoke this, but everything he comes up with are projects that serve his own ego and bring no benefit to the people as a whole.

Added DiffLines:

* StrangeSalute: Spengo's Destroyers salute with a triple Sieg Heil with alternating hands. It looks absolutely ridiculous.
