No, it's actually a very common practice in satire to blow the thing you want to satirize out of proportion and through this point out its absurdity. I've already hinted at why the film itself is clearly aware of its satirical element, and I don't have to read too much into it to do that. There is a lot of dialogue that supports this interpretation, they are literally telling the viewer how to watch the movie. When there is a close-up on Baby Doll's heels in that first fight with the samurais, the audience always laughs (I've seen the film twice so far). The film tells you it is a satire and it works like a satire, you just have to connect the dots to see the whole picture.
You guys aren't even giving any arguments as to why Sucker Punch doesn't work like a satire, it seems to me you refuse to accept the most basic premise - that Hollywood movies can be more than what they're advertised as.
Man, just read my posts: You're not even arguing about the same thing- We're not talking about what movies are advertised as, we're talking about how they TURN OUT. You're talking about how they're INTENDED to be... what they're intended to be is completely irrelivant, as a number of people have pointed out, so stop talking about that. You're the one talking about how the films are advertised, jacking off to the intellectual premises of films which never even made it into the finished product.
Once again in case you don't get it (again)- we're not talking about what the ads say, or what the director wanted to make the film about- That's you. We're talking about the end result, about the literal content of the film.
