Oldie but goodie: My favorite parody of Lord of the Rings. Brilliant French and Saunders are Bilbo Baggins aka Dildo Daggins (and later she is Frodo/ Dodo) and Grandalf aka Grand Alf.  It’s a long feature, 19 minutes, so get yourself cozy. I think every minute is worth it, but particularly love minute 2:30-3:00. Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders have just completed their farewell tour as a duo, “Still Alive”.
