Spaceballs : One of best parodies ever!

One of best parodies ever!

Among Naked Gun, Airplane, I think Spaceballs is one of the best parodies ever, Mel Brooks is a genius, and I hope Spaceballs 2 can be true… instead of another Wayans' unfunny parody!

Re: One of best parodies ever!

Agreed. Nobody makes good parodies anymore. Instead of nonsensical poop jokes, so much can be accomplished with cleverly written and expertly delivered dialogue. The "Now / Then" scene between Col. Sandurz & Dark Helmet was perfect.

Re: One of best parodies ever!

Are you serious? You think the A$$hole joke was cleverly written? Or "hilarious" character names like Pizza the Hut, Colonel Sandurz and Dot Matrix?

This movie is an embarrasment to comedy.

Re: One of best parodies ever!

This wouldn't even make my top 20 list of top parody movies.

Re: One of best parodies ever!

I have to agree - I don't hate this movie but I've never really thought it was all that great.

Re: One of best parodies ever!

Definitely on my Top 5 list of classic comedies.

Is Naked Gun classified as a comedy or a comedy parody? If the latter what is it a parody of?

Re: One of best parodies ever!

The comedy is genius in this. This kind of spoof have been done before but the jokes are great. The acting is great. There are couple of jokes where the timing is a little off (like the Alien referrence) but it's just funny and entertaining.
