Either this is the lamest Mel Brooks comedy ever or it's too close to other contenders to make much difference.

The only real sparks are set off by MacNicol as Renfield, the solicitor who develops a taste for flies and spiders after being bitten by Dracula.

Brooks, as Van Helsing, is one of the more successful aspects, but he hasn't imbued in his stock company a similar ability to rise above their underwritten roles.

Slight but amusing.

Not to venture forth some sort of radical idea, but aren't comedies supposed to have jokes?

It's a toothless parody that misses more often than it hits.

If any movie proves that Mel Brooks' genius for skewering creaky genres has evaporated, it's this anemic attempt to draw new blood from low-flying vampire high jinks.

Dracula is anemic and mediocre, with only one or two moments to remind you of the former, funnier Brooks.

Nielsen makes a dapper and calmly inept Dracula, but it's Brooks' irrepressible and oblivious Van Helsing who's the main attraction.
