It would seem that nothing new or noteworthy could still be gleaned from the Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley creation, but Mel Brooks with Young Frankenstein has done just that. Full Review

For a really delightful parody, James Whale's own Bride of Frankenstein is far better value. Full Review

[Brooks'] funniest movie. Gene Wilder as Frankenstein's grandson is all repressed hysteria, Marty Feldman a superbly deformed Igor...

Brooks has never been as inspired as in this movie, at the service of the viewer, for whom the seventh art was created. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Product Description:

An affectionate parody that pays homage to the FRANKENSTEIN films (from the novel FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley) directed by James Whale in the 1930s, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is both a zany comedy and a cinematic tour de force. Written by director Mel Brooks and the film's star, Gene Wilder, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN has all the usual--and in this case slightly unusual--suspects: the reluctant scientist Frederick Frankenstein, who is actually the grandson of the infamous creature-creator (pronounced "Fronken-steen" and played by Wilder), his spoiled fiancée (Madeline Kahn), Igor the pop-eyed hunchback (Marty Feldman), his dizzy assistant (Teri Garr), the castle's hideous head housekeeper (Cloris Leachman), and, of course, the Monster (Peter Boyle). Highlights include the sets, which are the original ones used in the Whale films; the beautiful black-and-white cinematography; and the fine screenplay. Combining noirish elegance with uproarious sight gags and double entendres is a feat Brooks pulls off fabulously, directing the wonderful ensemble to act with sensitivity and humanistic feelings as well as with lunatic abandon. YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is a treat from beginning to end.
