Product Description

Product Description

Spaceballs (Collector's Edition

Amazon.ca

Mel Brooks's 1987 parody of the Star Wars trilogy is a jumble of jokes rather than a comic feature, and, predictably, some of those jokes work better than others. The cast, including Brooks in two roles, more or less mimics the principal characters from George Lucas's famous story line, and the director certainly gets a boost from new allies (SCTV graduates Rick Moranis and John Candy) as well as old ones (Dick Van Patten, Dom DeLuise). Watch this and wait for the sporadic inspiration--but don't be surprised if you find yourself yearning for those years when Brooks was a more complete filmmaker (Young Frankenstein). --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Spaceballs, a comic masterpiece directed by Mel Brooks, is one of the funniest movies that I have ever seen. I own the trilogy of Star Wars and I watched every movie in the trilogy before I viewed this movie. After I watched Spaceballs, I found myself in a state of pure laughter as I saw Mel Brooks and John Candy imitating the trilogy of Star Wars. Anyone that wants a good funny movie to view should buy Spaceballs today.

although not a mel brooks masterpiece this film does not suffer solely from lack of comedic inspiration. in fact i find it to be one of his best. its main problem, in my opinion, was the shift in audiences. for the most part films such as Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein catered to an audience that was, by 1987, much older and focusing on family life. plus, brooks' comedic venom was now aimed at a less familiar target in Star Wars. intially, even i had a hard time time convincing myself it was worth seeing. but after repeated viewings i realized that it was as funny as many of brooks' best. now dont get me wrong, you wont laugh as often as you did for High Anxiety but you'll laugh none the less. sadly, the core players of previous films are missing here (Harvey Corman & Madeline Kahn) and it suffers becasue of it but the times were changing and so were the films. only later on did brooks really get into a stupor with Robin Hood: Men In Tights and Dracula: Dead and Lving It, starring the one dimensional Leslie Nielsen.

Mel Brooks nails the sci-fi genre, particularly the Star Wars Trilogy, with this hilarious spoof. Brooks' movies have traditionally been hit-or-miss, but like Blazing Saddles and History of the World Part I, Brooks has his subject matter dead in his satirical sights.
Rick Moranis makes a perfect Dark Helmet, a young Bill Pullman pulls of a sufficiently roguish "Lone Star," and John Candy is well-suited as the Barf the Mawg. Joan Rivers also does the voice for "Dot Matrix," a robot who is vaguely reminiscent of another famous golden skinned druid. Brooks himself makes hilarious appearances as General Scroob and Yogurt, and every sight gag seems to perfectly poke fun at the Holy Trilogy, from "combing the desert" to "ludicrous speed." The film also takes smaller, but nonetheless obvious jabs at other classic sci-fi, including the transforming "Mega-Maid," obvious bows to "Planet of the Apes" and "Alien," and a faulty transporter a-la Star Trek.
As usual, only Brooks could get away with producing a movie featuring a spoiled "Druish princess," men fighting with light swords held in decidedly phallic positions, and jawa-like little people whose language consists of various inflections of "dink." Brooks makes us revel in the sheer political incorrectness of it all, for we know that this is unabashed theater of the absurd.
A hoot and a half from start to finish, this inexpensive DVD should be part of the collection of anyone who enjoys good science fiction or extremely silly but high quality spoof comedy.

Format: DVD
In Hollywood, parody is perhaps one of the more sincere forms of admiration, and every genre has inspired at least one satirical or at least zany parody, and for years Mel Brooks was the undisputed King of Kitsch.
Brooks' best films in this category are, of course, Blazing Saddles (a spoof of Westerns) and Young Frankenstein, his hilarious black-and-white take on Universal's 1930s "creature features." Both of these films launched frequent Brooks' player Gene Wilder into comic-leading man stardom for a while, and no other Brooks film since has been as successful or laugh-till-your-sides-ache funny, although a few of his later parody-driven films are still amusing and worth a look.
One of the few is 1987's Spaceballs, which takes on the sci-fi/space opera genre -- specifically, the Star Wars saga -- and takes every cliche and plot device ever used in those films. Starting with a Star Wars-like title crawl and taking comic license with the famous opening shot from Episode IV (a seemingly endless starship rumbles across the screen for what seems like an hour and sporting the cheeky bumper sticker "We Brake For Nobody") and climaxing with the obligatory final showdown between hero and villain, Spaceballs crams references from the Classic Star Wars Trilogy and tosses in bits of Star Trek, Alien and everything in between.
Bill Pullman (Lone Starr) fares well as the hero figure (who is a cross between Luke Skywalker and Han Solo), who flies across the stars on his Space Winnebago. His copilot and pal Barf (the late, great John Candy) is a "mog" -- half man, half dog -- who's his "own best friend." Together, this odd duo is caught up in the slight plot pitting the evil Spaceballs against the peaceful (if rather bland) inhabitants of Planet Druidia.

A film that never gets old, I've been watching "Spaceballs" since I was a kid, and I just recently bought the DVD.
"Spaceballs" is a comedy by Mel Brooks which, while creating mini-parodies on several franchises throughout the movie, from "Star Trek" to "Planet of the Apes," it is essentially a spoof on "Star Wars," and it is a hilarious one at that.
The movie revolves around the exploits of Lone Starr and his companion Barf (half man, half dog) in their encounter with Princess Vespa of the Planet Druidia and her robot (droid) Dot Matrix. Druidia has become the target of the Spaceballs, an "empire" of sorts that wants the planet's air supply for themselves, ruled by the evil President Skroob. The adventure leads through many familiar settings of other movies, mainly from "Star Wars."
The comedy never fails and the movie creates several moments that will stick solidly in the viewer's memory, from the jump to ludicrous speed to the climactic Shwartz battle between Lone Starr and the ruthless Dark Helmet. It's a movie that markets watching over and over.
As for the DVD, while not as completely fleshed as some other discs, has plenty more extras than most. The opening menu is great, with eerie music playing, as if it were a serious film... and broken by a cow flying by or an astronaut yelling "Help me!" There is a theatrical trailer, a Making-Of documentary, and an audio commentary by Mel Brooks. Everything is informative and often hilarious. Despite the hardships of the film, you can tell everyone had fun making it.
This DVD is definitely worth your money. While it may run out of laugh-out louds after a while (or maybe it's just me though; I tend to see comedies run out of steam after multiple viewings) it will never cease to amuse you; and the extras will keep you entertained, making this DVD stand the test of time.
