What disconcerts me about Mr Brooks is his obviousness, the lack of any true surprise in his gags.

Mel Brooks has never known when a joke is worthy of a five-minute bit and when it's something you can flesh out into a full length feature.
| Original Score: 3/5

Far from Brooks' best work, but it's the one that makes me laugh the most.

Brooks' tribute to silent cinema has its drawbacks, but his obvious affection for pre-talkies saves the day.

While Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein stride across the land with seven-league boots, Silent Movie glides on tip-toe like Bugs Bunny in ballet slippers.

Largely a success due to some very funny sight gags, but even at a brief 87 minutes, Brooks seems to be stretching things to feature-film length in the last half-hour.

Nearly everything is done in that special Mel Brooks brand of broad comedy that quickly palls for all but the faithful.
