Everyone makes lists of the greatest action, horror, romance and western movies.  One list that I’ve not seen is the greatest parodies, so I thought I’d give it a try.

No sequels.  Only the first shot is eligible.

5. Airplane! (1980)

4. Return of the Living Dead (1985)

3. Young Frankenstein (1974)

2. Shaun of the Dead (2004)

And the greatest movie parody of all time (so far):

1. Galaxy Quest (1999)

    Galaxy Quest gets my vote for #1, too – mainly because it’s a movie with a heaart – not just a dumb satire.
