"Scary Movie" was released in 2000. This movie is a parody of "Scream," a very successful horror film that was released in the 1990s. "Scary Movies" was supposed to be the original title of "Scream"; however, "Scary Movie" also turned out as a spoof on many other popular 1990s movies and shows, such as "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "The Usual Suspects" and even some TV advertisements. Several sequels to "Scary Movie" were filmed during the following years.

"Disaster Movie" was made by the creators of "Scary Movie," "Date Movie," "Epic Movie" and some other spoof films. It mocks the entire genre of disaster films rather than a particular movie. The plot revolves around a group of young and attractive people that experience large catastrophes, such as asteroids, twisters and earthquakes, in one night. The movie includes parodies of "Indiana Jones," "Iron Man" and "High School Musical."

"The Starving Games" spoofs "The Hunger Games." Characters in the movie also encounter Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes and other popular fictional characters.
