Rating: 3/4 -- It`s a close call on recommending this movie, but ``Spaceballs`` does have some big laughs that are not to be missed Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- Painfully punny and overcooked to perfection....It's the gloriously loony ALIEN send-up with John Hurt that's the biggest gut-buster.

Rating: 5/5 -- Many of Brooks' films are hysterical in their own right but Spaceballs manages to take on a world of its own. Full Review

The film's low-tech styling is roughly the cardboard inversion of the cinematic machines it parodies, and Brooks seems less inclined than usual to push the overkill urges too far. Full Review

...Amusing sight gags...

[T]he meta-merchandising send-ups are inspired chuckles that get funnier with age.

Product Description:

In this spoof of STAR WARS and a handful of other sci-fi flicks from the 1970s and '80s, space-bum-for-hire Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-dog/half-man sidekick, Barf (John Candy), must rescue a spoiled Druish princess (Daphne Zuniga) from the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) in time to pay off Pizza the Hut. With SPACEBALLS, director Mel Brooks is at it again, this time with a science-fiction parody with all the blue-screen special effects and weird makeup (though in this film, things are always slightly off-kilter and unpolished). Here, maverick space travelers set out to save the planet Druidia, which is being harassed by the Spaceballs, a sinister group attempting to pilfer Druidia's air resources. Among the many gags and jokes is a hilarious parody of a classic scene from ALIEN. Mel Brooks himself makes one of his funniest acting appearances as Yogurt, a send-up of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK's Yoda.

Production Notes:

  • Clyde Leiberman cowrote the SPACEBALLS theme with director Mel Brooks and Jeff Pascetto. (Brooks often cowrites the music for his films.)
