Chalk up Blazing Saddles as only a lampoon of Hollywood westerns and you miss the point by a Texas mile.... Its humor is the palliative that lets Brooks mock prejudices and, with gloves off, prejudiced people.

Whacked out and brilliant. Eminently rewatchable.

Still good for a few chuckles, but I find it somewhat overrated.

Somehow the raunchy humor seemed to pass me by.

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.

Hilarious, irreverant western spoof. One of Mel Brooks' best.
July 7, 2004
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.
