One of the all time great comedy films. A classic by one of the masters Mel Brooks. I have watched this movie so many times that I might not be able to count it on my fingers and toes, lets just say a lot. It still holds up very very well. Amazing performances by Gene Wilder and Cleavon Little, who play two men from very different backgrounds who become best friends and partners and come to the rescue of the town of Rock Ridge. Culminating in them and the towns folk building a fake cardboard version of Rock Ridge to fool the bad guys, classic stuff. Mel Brooks has said that he don't think he could get the movie made in today's PC culture that seems to be running rampant and permeating everything these days. Which if true is a real shame, because we may be missing out all time classics like Blazing Saddles.
