A parody film is a comedy that parodies other film genres or films as pastiches,[1][2][3] works created by imitation of the style of many different films reassembled together. Although the genre is often overlooked by critics, parody films are commonly profitable at the box office.[4] Mockbusters are another type of genre for parody films.
