Dear Kim --

It's best to do at least a tiny bit of research before you post a question
to a list. If you do a Google search with the words "film parody" in quotes
the first hit you get is, in fact, Dan Harries' very fine book, Film Parody
(BFI, 2000). It engages directly with questions about parody and genre.
