Mel Brooks’ comedy about a washed-up Broadway producer attempting to cash in with a deliberate flop, and failing miserably at failing, is a conceptually brilliant one-joke movie. 817 more words

My Rating: B

I do enjoy Mel Brooks’ films, he had some wonderful movies in the 1970’s, but it seems like by the 80’s he was running out of steam. 60 more words


Young Frankenstein (1974)

I really love all these classic Mel Brooks comedies. Every one I’ve watched always delivers on the goods. Not only are the jokes fast and sharp, there’s an inventive eye for visual gags, an art form that seems to have become lost in today’s day and age. 206 more words
