Mafedy

A subgenre that incorporates elements both of comedy and mafia films.  Hence, a Mafedy.

Origin:  Watching Prizzi's Honor again really provides an opportunity to see how John Huston and original author Richard Condon really were working to create a new subgenre, the Mafedy.

Usage:  It's rare to find a genre mashup as strange as a Mafedy, because they usually don't work very well.  Case in point -- Jane Austen's Mafia!

First Used:  Prizzi's Honor
