Parodies, once a cheaply filmed niche segment of the adult movie market, are big business these days - filled with expensive special effects, real story lines, actors who can (sometimes) actually act and costumes that even comic-book geeks find authentic.

Get the child interested, show them how much “fun” the actors are having, and just like that, you’ve got another victim.
That was great! Never saw so many flying, exploding identical cars.
Nice ... I wanna see the rest of the movie.
