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 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]

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.

Brooks displays an obvious affection for the sci-fi stuff he's spoofing, which helps the laughs to flow forth a whole lot easier.

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

If it isn't likely to generate what Mr. Brooks himself refers to as 'Spaceballs II: The Search for More Money, neither is it anything less than gentle, harmless satire that occasionally has real bite.

Before he was a hit on Broadway, Brooks made funny movies. This, unfortunately, was the last of them.
| Original Score: 3/5

Too clever to dismiss, not funny enough to like
| Original Score: 3/5

Mel Brooks at his madcap finest. A generation of 1980s kids worship the film.
