Before he was a hit on Broadway, Brooks made funny movies. This, unfortunately, was the last of them.

Too clever to dismiss, not funny enough to like

Mel Brooks at his madcap finest. A generation of 1980s kids worship the film.
| Original Score: 5/5

It's sad, really, seeing once-great comic genius in decline.

How do you review a movie like this, anyway? I guess by saying whether you laughed or not. I did laugh, but not enough to recommend the film.

The jokes in the films are all pretty much in the same vein -- you might call it borsch-belt postmodern -- and they're all on about the same level, too.

It's silly and good natured.
| Original Score: 76/100

The best shot is the opening shot of a giant ominous spaceship floating through space like in the opening shot in Star Wars with a bumper sticker proclaiming "We brake for no-one." Thereafter it doesn't get much better.
