It`s a close call on recommending this movie, but ``Spaceballs`` does have some big laughs that are not to be missed

This sendup by director Mel Brooks incorporates the silliest aspects of all the major space adventures of the last decade, and the whole is a hilarious combination of its parts.

The jokes about the more calculating aspects of George Lucas's franchise are particularly telling. Remember, the Schwartz will be with you always.

The crew flings itself energetically through space in search of laughs, but it will never penetrate the galaxy where Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein traced their giddy orbits.

Unforgiveable then, unforgiveable now.

January 18, 2011
It's mostly forced humor all the way, a movie that rarely measures up to adequate kitsch.

January 18, 2011
The film's low-tech styling is roughly the cardboard inversion of the cinematic machines it parodies, and Brooks seems less inclined than usual to push the overkill urges too far.

Goofy parody mocks the Star Wars series.

Ainda que não consiga recapturar a acidez e a inteligência de seus esforços da primeira fase da carreira, Brooks consegue divertir graças a algumas belas sacadas e ao simples conceito de Moranis como Dark Helmet.

This is possibly the last great film that Mel Brooks directed

Despite the dirty jokes hidden in plain sight ('Never underestimate the power of the Schwartz!'), Spaceballs is a PG-rated comedy that makes silliness sublime. [Blu-ray]

Mel Brooks will do anything for a laugh. Unfortunately, what he does in Spaceballs, a misguided parody of the Star Wars adventures, isn't very funny.

Mel Brooks trashes Star Wars; very funny

Typically, the best conceits end in pratfalls, and non-Brooks fans may find that the gravitational pull towards the thumpingly obvious outweighs the wit.
July 5, 2005
One of the few screwball comedies that everyone must experience at least once.

Most jokes have a forced quality, but there's something gleefully self-aware about them, like the vaudeville comedian whose act consists of telling bad jokes and laughing at them, but doing it all with exquisite timing.
May 3, 2005
Brooks displays an obvious affection for the sci-fi stuff he's spoofing, which helps the laughs to flow forth a whole lot easier.

Brooks jumped the shark with Spaceballs

at its best, plays like the action in Star Wars, awakening a sense of pure enjoyment of movies

Absurdist 'Star Wars' parody; Brooks at his near wildest
