Blazing Saddles Reviews

Kansas City Kansan

Hilarious, irreverant western spoof. One of Mel Brooks' best.

| Original Score: 5/5

Empire Magazine

Brooks' wholehearted embracing of rank vulgarity, together with his innovative quickfire sketch structure, titillated crowds more used to sophisticated Hollywood humour.

The movie travels at a fast and furious clip, and the dialogue is endlessly quotable.

Eric Henderson
Slant Magazine

A limp, shapeless mess of a film trades in a genuine respect for westerns' tropes for purile vulgarity and joy-buzzer showmanship.

Rip-roaring comedy with fine performances from a star-studded cast.

Blazing Saddles has no dominant personality, and it looks as if it includes every gag thought up in every story conference. Whether good, bad, or mild, nothing was thrown out.

Mel Brooks' funniest film. Cleavon Little's performance is priceless.

| Original Score: 4/5

Marjorie Baumgarten
Austin Chronicle

A great cast is eclipsed by the hilarious performances of Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn, who plays a Marlene Dietrich-like chanteuse.

Remember when Mel Brooks was really funny? This is why.

[The] huge popularity of this film, still uncontested after so many years, really shouldn't be that surprising.

Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films

One of Mel Brooks' funniest and most popular films, an unsubtle spoof or parody of all the cliches from the time-honored genre of westerns
