One of Mel Brook's finest movies, in this one, he sets out to parody history, from the Stone Age, to the French Revolution. The first time period is the Stone Age, where we see the first homosapien and homosexual marriage, and discover how music was invented. Next, in a very short bit, we see Moses coming down from a mountain with the 15 commandments, until he drops one slab, and it becomes the 10 commandments. The next era is the Roman Empire, where after Philatipis[or something like that] gets a gig to do comedy for Caescar, he offends, the emporer, so him and his new found friend must fight each other to the death, but instead stop fighting and try to escape from Rome. The 4th era is by far the funniest, and the most offensive, The Spanish Inquisition. So in a musical extravaganza, we see how the Catholics tried to convert the Jews to become Catholics, and in the last part, we behold the French Revolution, and one of the greatest lines in this movie. So, see this hilarious movie, but if you are easily offended, then do not see this. The only thing that aggravates me was that Brooks had a part 2 planned out, but it was never released. At the end of the movie, we get a preview of the unreleased History of The World part 2.

If your like me and you love these whacky comedys, then your sure to love this one!
This one, and SpaceBalls are my favorite comedys and you cant denie Mel isnt a comical genious with some things, and hillarious goofball in others! He is the King of this kind of comedy!
(...) Starting off from the dawn of time, Mel shows the evolution of man arising, and, well... doing somthing youll have to see for yourself. Then Caveman era with hilarious looks at how paintings where developed, Critics, Death, and Music. Then going into era's of Moses receiving the 15... i mean, 10 commandments ;) and venturing into the Roman times with hilarious lines from Mel, Dom Deluise, Madilin Cann and many more, that I wish i could write the lines here, but youd just see ***** **** *****'s everywhere! Moving through time up to the dark Inqwasition ages and French revolution, Mel has put together one of the funniest movies of all time, and it really should be more well known then this. Its a shame, because it is some of the best material Mel has ever come up with!
And its good to be the king! Mel is definitly the King of comedy! Thus movie prooving it! Maybe if this movie was a bit more known, then it would have come with some bonus features? But even without the extras, i still give it a well deserved 5 star for beeing one of the funnist movies I have ever seen!

When you see this movie you will laugh, cry, fall to your knees and puke...well, maybe not cry, but close to it! We can all thank Mel Brooks for this great movie that can sumerize the life of man throughout our history. He is truly the greatest director ever in the history of the world. The world would be a better place if we all just bought this movie.

"Fresh from his glorious victory over the Cretins at Sparta--er, make that the Spartans at Crete"....
"Torquemada--do not implore him for mercy. Torquemada--let's face it, you can't talkimouda anything!"
"Don't get saucy with me, Bearnaise."
Lots of silly, campy lines make History of the World a real treat. As you'd expect with Mel Brooks, the cast is hilarious: Sid Caesar, Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman, Dom DeLuise, Gregory Hines, Bea Arthur, and the funny albeit typecast Andreas Voutsinas (who played Carmen Ghia in The Producers) as the saucy Bearnaise. Cloris Leachman as Mme. Lafarge ("no, no, dumb shkum") is a hoot as she rouses the rabble and wannabe Maurice Chevaliers on the Rue de Merde. Not on the level of Young Frankenstein, but still 90 mins. of good plain fun!

I really enjoy Mel Brooks work, BUT here's the problem (at least with this one):
In order for you to understand the humor (very clever by the way), you must have a fair knowledge of history. I'm not talking about the short 400- years of American "history", I'm talking about Greek and Roman civilizations and crist, and stuff like that. The humor in the movie is really very clever, but you won't get it if you don't know what it's referring to (It's like watching the third episode of a mini-series).
I found myself sitting there with a couple of friends and after every scene explaining to them what was going on. They were about ready to kill me (out of boredom) when I finally decided to watch it later on my own.

When I rented this movie a couple of weeks ago, I knew it would be funny, but I didn't know it would be a classic. Probably the best part of the movie is The Spanish Inquisition part. I crack up every time I think about it! I also crack up when the King goes skeet shooting ( you'll get it when you see it). The beginning is a bit slow but once you get to the Roman Empire, It's hilarious. Before the Roman Empire, the Moses part is funny and the birth of music is funny, but not as good as the Spanish Inquisition.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who liked Spaceballs and Robin Hood. If you liked Young Frankenstein, there may be too many jokes and not enough plot. All in all, this was a great movie.
