Mel Brooks has never known when a joke is worthy of a five-minute bit and when it's something you can flesh out into a full length feature.

Far from Brooks' best work, but it's the one that makes me laugh the most.

Brooks' tribute to silent cinema has its drawbacks, but his obvious affection for pre-talkies saves the day.

While Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein stride across the land with seven-league boots, Silent Movie glides on tip-toe like Bugs Bunny in ballet slippers.

Largely a success due to some very funny sight gags, but even at a brief 87 minutes, Brooks seems to be stretching things to feature-film length in the last half-hour.

Nearly everything is done in that special Mel Brooks brand of broad comedy that quickly palls for all but the faithful.
