Oh my lord....its...its...Spaceballs!!! ****, there goes the planet.
"What the hell is that? Spaceballs...Oh ****, there goes the planet." In this film, Mel pretty much takes a shot at a lot of sci fi stereotypes. Featuring an all star cast of Bill Pullman, Rick Moranis, Mel Brooks, John Candy, Joan Rivers and many others. The film is basically about how Planet Spaceball tries to kidnap Princess Vespa, for ransom, so they can acquire the code to Planet Druidia's ozone. Thus, allowing Planet Spaceball to steal all of Druidia's air supply for themselves. However, the king of Druidia hires Lone Star (Bill Pullman) along with his trusty sidekick, Barf (John Candy), to save the princess. Unfortunately, encountering Planet Spaceball's nefarious President Scrube (Mel Brooks) and its' evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis). Indeed, Mel continues to prove why he's one of the masters of creating parodies. With so many outragious scenes, you'll swear that this one of funniest movies out there. In one scene, Dark Helmet captures Lone Star's stunt double that'll have you laughing. Or how about the when Yogurt (Mel Brooks), a parody version of Yoda, mentions the Schwartz, I mean talk about comedy. Indeed, this may not be Mel's best work, but it'll definitely keep you entertained.
