Some of the most underrated spoof movies are still more fun to watch than the genres they parodied. Comedy doesn't always get the credit it deserves, so spoofs that should be all-time classics are occasionally discarded or even lost to time.
Parody is inherently an artistic format that exists to critique. Parodies poke fun at a subject as a means to promote deeper thinking and analysis. Like all comedy and critique, the parody film's very nature lends itself to be viewed as a temporary, or of the moment, creation. That's too bad, though, because there have been great spoofs over the years that deserve to be remembered and rewatched with the same fervor as any other film - especially within the genres they so successfully skewer.
Vote up your favorite movies that made an entire genre their object of (affectionate) scorn.
