** And Creator/SeltzerAndFriedberg's ''Meet the Spartans'' and ''Film/VampiresSuck'' is, you've guessed it, a parody of the ''300'' film and the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' series.
* A grand Italian tradition is that of redubbing, which consists in gag dubs of movies ranging from the sketches to full-length movies that may not share the film's plot or premise at all (sometimes with extensive new footage shot). Started with ''Film/{{Star Trek II|The Wrath of Khan}}'' way way back in the 1980s, making the gag dub OlderThanTheyThink. Lots of parodies can be found [[http://www.stevenworks.com here]] (naturally in Italian, and many of which strictly in local dialects.)

* ''Film/BeverlyHillsNinja'' is a parody of MightyWhitey ninja films. It features a tribe of ninjas adopting an orphan Caucasian boy whom they think will be their clan's long-prophesized "Great White Hope." Unfortunately for them, the boy grows up to be a clumsy, uncoordinated adult (played by Chris Farley) and the only way he can save the day is with the secret assistance of the ninja tribe's best Japanese member.

* Similarly, ''Series/PoliceSquad!'' was a parody of 1960s- and 1970s-vintage PoliceProcedural shows, particularly the output of Quinn Martin Productions, and specifically ''MSquad''.

* ''The Oceanic Six: A Conspiracy of Lies'' is a [[FauxDocumentary mockumentary]] on the ''Series/{{Lost}}'' season 4 DVD. Presented as an in-universe documentary, the film is an obvious parody of ''WebVideo/LooseChange'', from the music, voiceovers, interviews with questionably qualified scientists, anonymous interviews, wild accusations, and claims of a government coverup in regards to the crash of Oceanic flight 815 and the subsequent [[spoiler:rescuing of six passengers]]. The irony is that the documentary is ''right'' that the official story is a lie...but its explanation is hilariously wrong (one word: cannabalism).

Added DiffLines:

* Parodies were the ''Film/CarryOn'' movies' forte. It was rather daring at the time because the owners of the films they wanted to parody feared that they were stealing, but Hollywood's paranoia was soon reassured.
** ''Film/CarryOnCleo'' was a parody of ''Film/{{Cleopatra}}'', with many references to {{Shakespeare}}'s ''Theatre/AntonyAndCleopatra'' and ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar''.
** ''Film/CarryOnSpying'' mocked Franchise/JamesBond, with many characters being named after many espionage characters.
** ''Film/CarryOnJack'' nodded to {{swashbuckler}}s and WoodenShipsAndIronMen movies, particularly ''Film/MutinyOnTheBounty''.

* The ''Film/ScaryMovie'' series contains countless send-ups of contemporary horror and sci-fi movies, among other films. [[SeltzerAndFriedberg A few of the creators]] have also produced similar genre-spoof movies with self-descriptive titles, like ''Date Movie'', ''Epic Movie'' and ''Disaster Movie''. [[NonindicativeName Despite their names]], they seem to spoof [[ShallowParody the trailers of the respective year's hyped films]] instead.
