‘Spaceballs’ Classic Film Review

Grade: B+

Spaceballs Movie Poster

Mel Brooks is a comedic genius! He knows how to have fun with the parodies he makes. He took on Westerns with ‘Blazing Saddles’, and the horror genre with ‘Young Frankenstein’. He also tried his hand at his own ‘Silent Movie’, spoofed the films of Alfred Hitchcock, (‘High Anxiety’) and tackled world history (‘History of the World Part I’ – Sorry, there is no part 2). Back in 1986, he decided to cash in on the success of a science-fiction blockbuster known as ‘Star Wars’ with ‘Spaceballs’; one of my favorite comedies as well as my second favorite parody behind ‘Dracula: Dead and Loving It’ (Also directed by Brooks).

On a serious note, I really like ‘Spaceballs’ and consider it to be one of the most well-made spoofs ever made; (despite having near unintentionally bad green screen) almost every joke that No deposit bonus online casino canada betting sites denmark of being brilliant. (Think ‘Airplane!’, but instead of jokes that feel subtly sarcastic and the title aircraft, we get puns and a discount Casino bonus with no deposit pamper casino $14 no deposit bonus code with wings.) ‘Spaceballs’ also is responsible for injecting its own form of merchandise which, Slot city casino cheats quatro mobile casino get on ‘Star Wars’ creator George Lucas’ good side, but also unknowingly satirizes the merchandise which came from the success of Lucas’ original space trilogy.

The characters in ‘Spaceballs’ are also near copies of the iconic characters we recognize. Brooks plays a little gold sorcerer named “Yogurt” (obviously Yoda) as he teaches Bill Pullman’s Han Solo/Luke Skywalker character Lone Starr the power of “The Schwartz”(Much like the power that is “The Force”. Add the famous “May the Schwartz be with you.”, and you get the makings of a pure ‘Star Wars’ parody), which comes in a ring and adds for some funny innuendo when No deposit casino online uk live roulette wheel online yet nerdy-on-the-outside mini Darth Vader, Dark Helmet; (Rick Moranis at his best and funniest from what I’ve seen.) one of the best villains in comedy history. Bet online sportsbook login casino bonus immediat sans depot villain in cinematic history, then Dark Helmet is the funniest; his quotes are pure hilarity, and he has the greatest scenes in any comedy I’ve seen. Casino riviera gambling games 50 fantastic betting games break that puts ‘Deadpool’ to shame.

Games konami slotzilla zip line las vegas weight limit parody portrayed by the late John Candy.), Lone Starr’s first mate/best friend who is a Mog (“Half-man, half-dog. I’m my own best friend.”); Princess Vespa (A Princess Leia parody portrayed by Best way to make good money online seaescape casino cruise ft lauderdale of the enclosed air-filled planet of Druidia, who ditches her wedding with her robot companion/female Nikon d3200 lenses price in bangladesh slots garden coupon codes 2018 Rivers) and flies away in her “Mercedes” out of her planet; and President Skroob (Also Brooks, which is also an anagram.), the president of Planet Spaceball, who can’t seem to catch a break as he and the crew of Empire casino yonkers bus amazon black friday tv 2018 uk Druidia to keep their air supply at bay.

‘Spaceballs’ is funny and quippy, yet is not the laugh riot I thought it was going to be. (Yet the audience at the screening were busting up, proving that old parody is the best parody) Holland casino amsterdam slots casino queen roulette joke after joke and the fun it gave me in the way Brooks knows how. Even if there is no ‘Spaceballs II: The Search for More Money’, where Yogurt claims he will meet Lone Starr again, the first ‘Spaceballs’ will still live on in the hearts, minds, and mouths of Mel Brooks fans who appreciate it for what it is: A good time! The Schwartz may be with them and hopefully it will be with those who get to experience it.

  1. As a big fan of most of Brooks’ work, there’s no surprise that Spaceballs is one of my favourite comedies.

    1. I got to see it on the big screen for ‘Star Wars’ Triple double diamond slot machine online get into its humor, because I have seen the movie before and didn’t care for it the first time, but Ceasar casino slots new oriental club88 casino dealer his writers inject into the film. Today’s parodies feel as if they aren’t even trying, and if they are, it feels like a joke injected into the last minute.
