    With the comma, it is not really a double negative as they are separated phrases.

    Not seen SotD yet, I have it and will watch it this summer.

    A spoof??

    It has to be this one, hands down.

    George Hamilton is brilliant as Zorro.

    In terms of spoofs it has to be "Flying High/Airplane" - one of the first movies to pioneer the genre.

    And then there are the Mel Brooks adventures, including "Blazing Saddles" (as already mentioned) and another of my favorites "Young Frankenstein".

    In terms of comedies in general, i would have to say "The Da Vinci Code" - talk about a movie taking itself too seriously that you can't help but laugh!

    Another good spoof came to mind --> "Hot Shots"

    And the sequel --> "Hot Shots, Part Deux"

    "Hot Shots" was really funny. "Hot Shots, Part Deux" was okay.

    Galaxy Quest - nailed the sci-fi geek scene dead-on, without being too cruel - great performances by Tim Allen and Alan Rickman
    Churchill: The Hollywood Years - got panned by critics, but I think it's a great parody of Hollywood's tendency to 'adjust' a story to make the US look better - Christian Slater is having great fun with this one
    Grosse Pointe Blank - a very dark comedy about a professional killer who visits his hometown for a school reunion - some class acting from John Cusack, Minnie Driver and Dan Akroyd

    Seconded :D

    "Certainly! You take the blonde. I'll take the one in the turban!"

    Police Squad- not the movies that much but definitely the TV show.

    I was referring to the fact that you posted it twice, one has now been removed.

    Dumb & Dumber. After seeing it about 20-30 times it doesn't get old.

    That's a good one as well.

    And don't forget the gratuitous beaver shot. :)

    I don't really have a favorite, but I DO have a least favorite: Idiocracy. I felt depressed after watching that. However, if told to choose, I'd choose:

    Austin Powers (all three)
    Deuce Bigalow(both)
