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

Somehow the raunchy humor seemed to pass me by.

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.

The screenplay is credited to five writers, and it shows in the confused melange of styles.

A lewd spoof of westerns and racial prejudice; enough laughs to cover the fact that it is, essentially, a stupid movie.

Kids may not get all of Brooks' Old West parody.

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.

This all-singing, all-belching western spoof remains one of Mel Brooks's finest creations.

I laughed and laughed while viewing this again. Maybe part of it was nostalgia, but part of it came from a refreshing feeling of being shocked once more.

It's the best [director] Brooks has ever offered his audience.
September 6, 2003
Rip-roaring comedy with fine performances from a star-studded cast.

April 2, 2008
Although Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder head a uniformly competent cast, pic is handily stolen by Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn. Kahn is simply terrific doing a Marlene Dietrich lampoon.

The finale offers the most daring 15 minutes in cinema history
