Review "Compared to Brooks' usually broad comic swipes, The Twelve Chairs is decidedly low-key, though Brooksian flourishes abound from the film's theme song, ""Hope for the Best (Expect the Worst),"" to sight gags at the expense of Soviet bureaucracy (Bender's visit to a national furniture registry yields ""Bureau of Bureaus and Dressers"" and ""Bureau of Furniture Not Listed in Other Bureaus"" among its departments) to pixillated, slapstick chases. The humor is milder, though, and less frantic than much of Brooks' work."

Review "The Twelve Chairs is primarily recommended for fans of Mel Brooks, and for insatiably curious movie-watchers looking for hidden gems they may have overlooked. Although I can't quite give it a personal recommendation, the performances are enough to keep most of the film afloat, and and far as Mel Brooks films go, it's probably the most palatable to watch with the whole family. Over the years, Brooks has shown that he's not exactly the master of subtle comedy, but the attempt is interesting to see. I suspect that after his experience making this one, he too realized that bawdy, broad farce was the way for him to go in the future."
