For those of you who love In Living Color’s music video parodies…there’s also parodies of well-known movies!
Can you handle this?!
I Came For One Movie Parody…Honest!
So, as you’ve seen with some of my previous articles, I’m not good at “leaving well enough alone,” or “keeping it short.”
And if you read last week’s article, you’re aware of this.
Movie parodies (like music videos) made for fertile ground on In Living Color. I covered this in two previous posts (see related), but there is so much more to see. Besides, the truth is, I forgot some of these existed.
So I guess that makes them more worthy of mention!
Anyway, keep reading – you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
Sitcom Flight Passengers, and Basic Instincts Gone Awry…
Uploaded by myworldisgettingdumber
First of all, two parodies for the price of one!
Perhaps I should just ask the important question: what happens when Sondra from 227 works airline security on a plane overrun with terrorists? Passenger 227, that’s what! In this parody, Sondra takes on the Wesley Snipes role AND the terrorists. She also insists to Mary (via phone) that she didn’t teach Mary’s daughter how to “do that thing with her tongue.”
(By the way, this is the parody I planned to write about!)
Meanwhile, in the second movie parody (same video), Basic Instinct gets the “Wanda The Ugly Girl” treatment. But instead of Michael Douglas, we have Tommy Davidson. And filling in for Sharon Stone…Ali Wentworth. But, filling in for her? Jamie Foxx as Wanda. Of course, if you’ve seen Wanda before, you know where this is going!
I still can’t believe she’s married to George Stephanopolous.
A Fatal Attraction…to Coffee?!
This parody crosses product placement with movie. In this case, coffee with Fatal Attraction. Faux Glenn Close is visited by a neighbor needing coffee for his party. Of course, she feels that instant spark, that connection that sharing a cup of coffee with a total stranger brings about. And because she is a bit unhinged, she can’t handle it when he doesn’t feel the same.
It was one moment, a chance encounter, and you’ve seen Fatal Attraction, so you know where this leads.
Mookie Does The Right Thing
We’re back in Brooklyn, where Sha-day is Sadie, Joie is Joy, and copies of School Daze are plentiful. Spike Lee owns “Spike’s Joint,” where he offers advice, offers up free copies of his movie, and fends off Damon Wayans.
Look for the Rosie Perez (the Fly Girls choreographer) in a cameo.
The Enterprise crew had not one, but two, adventures in the In Living Color movie parody world!
First up, that time Louis Farra-khan boarded the Enterprise…
Secondly, the journey that happened long past retirement…
So, it was a retirement home escape act after all?
Why wasn’t this movie actually made?!
There’s No Silencing These Lambs!
Clarice is back, and she’s hunting “The Gibberish Killer.” Her only hope? Oswald Bates, whose rather interesting grasp on the English language is both fascinating and terrifying.
Movie Parodies We’d Like To See!
I’m probably scratching the surface (especially since I’ve discussed this two other times), but if there was one thing this show knew how to do, it was add their established characters into their parodies of movies.
Wouldn’t you love to see one of these movies?
