Favorite Mel Brooks Movie

Pygmalion 03-12-2006 11:03 PM
I have a hard time deciding between Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, and Silent Movie. I have a soft spot for the last, as it was the first movie with "suggestive" gags that I understood.

Blazing Saddles, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (good musical), History of the World Part I (PartII would have been cool...SEE! JEWS...IN...SPAA-AA-ACE!!!!), Young Frankenstein (Fr-on-ken-sht-ee-n ....Frau Blücher!), Spaceballs .... Robots? I dunno didn't see that one.

Silent Movie


I need to rent that or..buy it on dvd. I used to have the video and the last time I saw it I was INCREDIBLY young.

Probably...a tie between blazing saddles and young frankenstein.

They're all good..some not as much as others (Well..okay I specifically mean Robin Hood: Men in tights. Good but not AS great)

Wow, we have to choosejust one? That's a hard one.

I really enjoy all of Mel Brooks' movies............hmm, I guess it's a sevenway tie between History of the World Part 1, Blazing Saddles, Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Young Frankenstein, High Anxiety, Dracula: Dead and Loving It, or Spaceballs. @_@

History of the World Part 1, with Blazing Saddles coming in at a close second.

I can quote that movie forever.

Duh, Spaceballs of course. Followed by RH: Men in Tights.

I would say its a total tie between Blazzing Saddles, Robin Hood Men in Tights and Space Balls.

I'll have to go with Spaceballs, with Blazing Saddles as a close second. I always seem to quote those the most.

Tie between Spaceballs and The Producers.

For me it would have to be the very first Mel Brooks movie. Space Balls. I laughed sooooooooooo hard when I rented that movie for the first time. I know own it on DVD for future refrence laughs.

I just saw Blazing Saddles last night. Hilarious movie. ['Scuse me while I whip this out." Screams.]

I can't really pick a favorite. I've liked all the Mel Brooks movies I've seen (including Spaceballs, Robin Hood, Men in Tights, and Young Frankenstein).

Mel Brooks is, apparently, going to do the musical treatment for "young frankenstein" next.

The producers (which I still haven't seen..or..not the musical version)...okay that made sense. This one dosen't seem to make as much, then again I figure it's his movie, and he apparently did this well with the producers, so yeah.

Furthermore..is young frankenstein even out on dvd? I assume it has to be, and I think I've seen it once but I'm not sure.

I'm reeeeally sure that Mel Brooks did a lot before spaceballs. Like the 12th chair (which isn't very funny). I think Blazing Saddles and The Producers were from the early 70s, too.

Producers is so awesome. I am yet to see Blazing Saddles, though.

Yea, Young Frankenstein has been on DVD for a while. I picked it up like 4 years ago.

Anyway, I'd say that my favorite Mel Brooks film is Blazing Saddles followed by Young Frakenstein as a close second.

I'm torn between Young Frankenstein and Spaceballs
