Spoof movies are parodies of films. Hate the original? Watch its spoof! It makes for a better and fun watch, which you truly deserve this 4/20. If you like comedy, especially satire, you may enjoy watching spoof movies, especially when they make fun of big franchises. Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, Twilight, 50 Shades of Grey, and many other big franchises have parodies made after them.

While spoof movies have existed for a long time, lately there has been a steady decline in their quality. Parodies these days are hardly funny, and no one is laughing at piss and poop jokes anymore. Take 50 Shades of Black, which was a parody of the famous 50 Shades movies. The movie earned an average rating of 2.8/10 on Rotten Tomatoes and was slammed by critics and viewers. The Hungover Games – a parody of The Hangover and The Hunger Games – did not fare too well either. In fact, most popular spoof movies are turning out to be really bad these days. So if you do want to stream some good parodies this 4/20 while under lockdown, you may want to pick from this list:

Scary Movie

A spoof of all the popular horror movies ever made, the Scary Movie series is a must-watch in the parody genre. We guarantee it will make horror movies like Scream, Haunted Hill, The Ring, Exorcist and others easier to watch. The movies are not connected to one another so you can catch Scary Movie 5 online.

Streaming on: Netflix

Date Movie

Do romantic comedies make you gag? Then this is the perfect movie to watch! It mainly parodies My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Meet the Fockers along with Bridget Jones’s Diary, Shallow Hal, When Harry Met Sally…, Princess Diaries, Legally Blonde and other classics that you’ve ever been forced to watch with romantic partners.

Streaming on: Amazon Prime

Epic Movie

As the name suggests, this epic film parodies films in the ‘epic’ genre, such as The Chronicles of Narnia series, Harry Potter series, Pirates of the Caribbean series, X-Men series and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Even if you are a fan of these franchises, you cannot help but laugh out loud to this spoof version.

Streaming on: Amazon Prime

Meet the Spartans

This hilarious comedy spoofed the Gerard Butler-starrer 300. It was created by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, who also directed Epic Movie, Date Movie, and the Scary Movie series. Needless to say, this was one of their better efforts, and also managed to get plenty of laughs.

Streaming on: Amazon Prime

Vampires Suck

Hated Twilight and New Moon? Then you have got to watch this hilarious parody. It makes fun of vampires, werewolves, and insecure teenage girls who obsess over vampires and werewolves. Neither Team Edward nor Team Jacob can win this one!

Streaming on: Amazon Prime

Not Another Teen Movie

If you are not a fan of the ‘90s teen dramas, this is the movie to watch. It takes a dig at several rom-coms like 10 Things I Hate About You, Can’t Hardly Wait, She’s All That, Never Been Kissed, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club and more. Never will a teen movie feel like a drag again.

Streaming on: Netflix

Naked Gun

All three films in this series was a spoof of the television series Police Squad! While the TV series was canceled only after six episodes, their parodies went on to perform well in the box office. The movies also got positive reviews from viewers and critics.

Johnny English

A parody of spy movies, this one directly takes a shot at the James Bond series. The titular character is played by Rowan Atkinson, who is more popularly referred to as Mr. Bean after his famous comedy character. Just like Bean, Johnny English is always up to something silly and the consequences are often hilarious.

Streaming on: Amazon Prime

So leave behind all the negative thoughts and dedicate this day to happy vibes only. Stay home, stay safe, and keep bingeing. Happy 4/20!
