I don't like this film. There. I've said it. Come and beat me up. Tell me I'm a moron, I don't care. Y'see, I do have a sense of humour, it's just different to yours.
Spaceballs is all the slapstick parody jokes humanely possible rolled into one film. It is funny (on occasion), it's just you could do this as a series of sketches on a comedy show rather than as a film.
I'll give you a couple of examples from England. French and Saunders. Silence of the Lambs done as a parody of their own careers (very bizarre). 15 minutes top, split into 5 minute chunks. Absolutely hilarious.
Adam & Joe (obscure comedy show). Seven done with dolls and cuddly tolls. The head in the box scene has to be seen to be believed. 10 minutes top, absolutely hilarious.
Now we come to Spaceballs. Stretched to it's limits in terms of time, the jokes fall down more often than not, and although there are some truly funny scenes, I wanted it to be a 20 minute film, not over an hour.
Buy this if you love the humour. I'm sure you will anyway. But PLEASE watch it before buying. I'd hate to see yet another copy at the car boot sales.

Some jokes are funny, but too few to save this over long, dull spoof of the "Star Wars" trilogy and beyond. The script is hurting more than it needed to because anyone can poke fun at "Star Wars"! This tried just a little too hard to impress the large audience of the "Star Wars" films. Some jokes had effect, but most were oldies, not goodies.

It contains a few funny jokes and moments but is a bit thin on plot. This movie is a complete spoof of the star wars movie and has all the main characters who look nothing like the real versions and have completely different names.
