A Classic, Hilarious Farce

on 11/22/2001

This movie continues to remain one of my all-time favorites. I have watched it hundreds of times and I still find puns, jokes and sight gags that I missed the first time. With the current interest in all things Star Wars, this movie is timeless with its references to the best sci-fi flicks of all time. DEFINITELY check it out, if you haven't seen it yet.

Editors Note
Note In this spoof of STAR WARS and a handful of other sci-fi flicks from the 1970s and '80s, space-bum-for-hire Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-dog/half-man sidekick, Barf (John Candy), must rescue a spoiled Druish princess (Daphne Zuniga) from the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) in time to pay off Pizza the Hut. With SPACEBALLS, director Mel Brooks is at it again, this time with a science-fiction parody with all the blue-screen special effects and weird makeup (though in this film, things are always slightly off-kilter and unpolished). Here, maverick space travelers set out to save the planet Druidia, which is being harassed by the Spaceballs, a sinister group attempting to pilfer Druidia's air resources. Among the many gags and jokes is a hilarious parody of a classic scene from ALIEN. Mel Brooks himself makes one of his funniest acting appearances as Yogurt, a send-up of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK's Yoda.

Variety "...Amusing sight gags..." 06/24/1987
USA Today "...Often underrated is this comedy's dead-on production design..." 04/30/1996 p.8D
Premiere "[T]he meta-merchandising send-ups are inspired chuckles that get funnier with age." 05/01/2005 p.106
Entertainment Weekly "The spoofs on marketing tie-ins and insecure tyrants have grown even more relevant..." 05/13/2005 p.70
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Painfully punny and overcooked to perfection....It's the gloriously loony ALIEN send-up with John Hurt that's the biggest gut-buster." 05/01/2012
