The funniest Mel Brooks film, Clevevon Little, who died far too young, is a comic genius. With the success of The Producers on Broadway maybe we can expect a stage version of Saddles which I'd pay good money to see.

It's a crazed grabbag of a movie that does everything to keep us laughing except hit us over the head with a rubber chicken.

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.

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

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

I can say with full confidence that this is one of the funniest movies ever made.
January 1, 2000
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

The finale offers the most daring 15 minutes in cinema history

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