* The similar horror spoof ''Film/ShriekIfYouKnowWhatIDidLastFridayTheThirteenth'' received some of the same criticism. Sometimes mistakenly referred to as a parody of ''Scary Movie'' in turn ([[UpToEleven a parody of a parody of a satire?]]), it's actually an original spoof of ''Scream'' and similar movies which [[DuelingMovies just happened to have been created around the same time]].

* ''Film/TheSlumberPartyMassacre'' was written as a satirical jab at the slasher genre for its victimization of women and excessive nudity. Its ''directors'' took it seriously, filming it as a straight example of the genre. As a result it was known for having more gore and nudity than any other slasher up to that point. The sequels corrected this, but it became more of a general parody of slashers, than a parody of any particular element.

* ''Film/JohnnyEnglishReborn'' received some criticism for this. The films present themselves as parodies of Bond films -- all of which (with the exception of the TimothyDalton and Creator/DanielCraig films) are so over-the-top and tongue-in-cheek that the entire genre of "James Bond parody" is completely superfluous.

* ''Film/LoadedWeapon1'' had the same problem in spoofing a [[Film/LethalWeapon film series]] that obviously didn't take itself all that seriously to begin with. Creator/RogerEbert pointed out the flaw in sending up a movie that featured [[TheCanKickedHim an exploding crapper]].

* ''Film/TheSlumberPartyMassacre'' was written as asatirical jab at the slasher genre for its victimization of women and excessive nudity. Its ''directors'' took it seriously, filming it as a straight example of the genre. As a result it was known for having more gore and nudity than any other slasher up to that point. The sequels corrected this, but it became more of a general parody of slashers, than a parody of any particular element.
* The first ''Film/ScaryMovie'' got some flak for parodying [[Franchise/{{Scream}} a movie series]] that was already meant to be a satire of the SlasherMovie genre. It works mostly because ''Scream'' itself [[IndecisiveParody doesn't really seem sure whether it's meant to be a parody]], and seems more like a straight entry of the genre at times.

* Most parodies of ''Series/{{Batman}}'' starring Creator/AdamWest. Even a cursory look will tell show it wasn't meant to be taken seriously and was in fact itself parodying comics of [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks the time]].

* In the ''MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode guide, the writers admit that ''CatalinaCaper'' was one of the hardest episodes to write, being an unfunny musical comedy, thus making it difficult to effectively mock.

* Done (possibly) in-universe in WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic's review of ''Film/LastActionHero'', in which he reviews the parody of action films as if it was a straight action film; given that the Critic is pompous and self-important, the satire element would have gone right over his head.

** ''Series/TheOffice'' both parodies and invokes this trope; David Brent, the manager, fancies himself a genius comedian, but the very fact that his 'act' is basically limited to riffing on these kind of characters is a pretty clue that ultimately he's got nothing.
