    I know the Pink Panther movies aren't officially considered parody movies for some reason but I personally consider A Shot in the Dark a parody of murder mystery stories and The Pink Panther Strikes Again a parody of James Bond movies.

    J0hNF_UK seems so. how johnny english managed to be in this lost is beyond me, it’s crap, the pink panther series of films is way better. i like hot fuzz, but to say it’s any better than carry on constable is a tough call. i think it’s a lot to do with age of the people watching, these are as you say for the trendy crowd, me i’m 40+ that grew up with the likes of carry on films, Frankie Howard in up pompeii and peter sellers pink panther films, those are funny.

    Life of brian isnt exactly an attack on the bible. Its an attack on the idea of following for the sake of it. Thats the whole point of the film and what its trying to get across.

    Well, there has been some disagreement among the Python team about that. Apparently there was a brief exchange that occurred when the surviving members reunited in Aspen, Colorado, in 1998. In the section where Life of Brian is discussed, Terry Jones says, *"I think the film is heretical, but it's not blasphemous."* Eric Idle can be heard to agree adding, *"It's a heresy." However, John Cleese, disagreed, countering, *"I don’t think it's a heresy. It's making fun of the way that people misunderstand the teaching."* Jones ten responds, by saying *"Of course it's a heresy, John! It's attacking the Church! And that has to be heretical."* Cleese replies, "No, it's not attacking the Church, necessarily. It's about people who cannot agree with each other."* In a later interview, Jones did however say the film *"isn't blasphemous because it doesn’t touch on belief at all. It is heretical, because it touches on dogma and the interpretation of belief, rather than belief itself."* At the end of the day though I suppose it boils down to how anyone as an individual interprets the movie. Personally I don't think the "blasphemous" although as an atheist I couldn't care less if it was. Heretical yes as Jones stated but it clearly doesn't mock Jesus but his followers.
