A parody film is a subgenre of comedy film 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 subgenre is often overlooked by critics, parody films are commonly profitable at the box office.[4] Mockbusters are another genre of parody films known for combining elements of sci-fi, horror, war, and thriller genres. It is known as a crossover humor film.
