...suffers from a pervasive lack of laughs that's compounded by writer/director Mel Brooks' relentlessly (and exhaustingly) over-the-top sensibilities.

I suppose you could call it a time capsule. Then again, Brooks' Broadway blockbuster may prove that blustery bad taste is timeless ... Ferrell is so ferociously over the top, I hope the other cast members all got rabies shots.

The star not only indulges himself gluttonously, but the director seems to be doubled up with laughter at how funny he is being through Mostel; and the film bloats into sogginess.

Wilder's like a baby monkey--you get the feeling he'd cling to your leg if you let him.

Brooks in his feature debut already knows that vulgarity is both meticulous art and timeless industry

Scathingly hysterical.

Mel Brooks has turned a funny idea into a slapstick film, thanks to the performers, particularly Zero Mostel.

Great, great, great! "Springtime for Hitler," one of the funniest sequences ever put on film! Wilder is great, Mostel, a force of nature. Always fresh, no matter how often you see it.
