A damn perfect parody film by the (only) master of that genre, Mel Brooks. Sure, in success, it is often overshadowed by his other works but in terms of originiality and humour, this has to overshadow them all. My first time viewing wasn't really that great and I passed it off as a decent movie but from second viewing onwards, it became funnier each time.

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: January (49 movies items)

"January 2 "What a dramatic airport." I have been putting off watching this for a while because I wanted to familiarize myself with more of Hitchcock's films, but now I decided to watch it because even if I haven't seen all of Hitchcock's famous movies, a truly good parody doesn't require you to know the source material to understand it. I will say that it is recommended if you want to truly appreciate it, but this is something you could probably still enjoy even if you've only seen two of hi"

"PC Mel Brooks on kuiva kuin joululuumu! Hithcockille vinoilu menee tosiaan jo aika lailla yli, mutta parempaa katsottavaa ne ovat kuin Melin pallinaamainen pallinaamailu pallinaamalandiassaan. Olihan tässä sentään yksi oikeasti naurattanut vitsi, missä mielisairaalan koira-asukki kusaisee rehtorin nilkoille. He he hee, sairastuin muuten mystisesti heti High Anxietyn katsottuani."

“A damn perfect parody film by the (only) master of that genre, Mel Brooks.

My first time viewing wasn't really that great and I passed it off as a decent movie but from second viewing onwards, it became funnier each time. Now, you see, Mr. Brooks's films are not the least bit repulsive or disgusting or tasteless, far from it. You won't find people hawking in other people's plates, or people picking their noses, none of that and this is why I feel safe in watching his comedies. Even the now-iconic flatulence scene from Blazing Saddles is funny compared to the modern-shit of the now!

His way of handling a comedy, and the characters, may not be uniq” read more

"Homage to master of suspense. Brooks takes his talent to mental hospital. Decent effort but still missing that final punch. "

"Re-watch - July 27th Brooks takes on Hitchcock with excellent results. While the laughs may not be constant, they're mostly gut-busting when they turn up. Unsure how this one gets lost among his films, but it seems to be less well known as time goes by. Do yourself a favor & give it a look. Favorite moments: the Psycho parody (above) and a scene where the entire joke is done not by dialogue but by camera angle. Currently streaming on Netflix"

"Katsottu: 28.6.2012 Mel Brooks on koomikkona aivan vitun vammainen, ja hänen taitonsa ovat aika mitäänsanomattomat. Silti tässäkin elokuvassa hänen ohjauksensa on ihan kliffaa kamaa, vaikka näyttely onkin kuivaa kuin Saharan hiekka. Brooks on kuitenkin onnistunut luomaan paremman näyttelijäkaartin ympärilleen, jonka vuoksi tässäkin parodiassa on ihan hauskoja juttuja. Toki jotkut Hitchcock -jutut menevät päälle liimailun puolelle, mutta jaksavat minua ainakin tämän yhden katselu"
