By now, I have seen most of the movies directed by Mel Brooks and I'm afraid I'm not really a fan of his work, expect of course 'The Producers' which is by far his best flick, in my opinion. Indeed, when watching this movie, I had about the same feeling that I had while watching 'Blazing Saddles'. Indeed, for both movies, I was expecting to be blown away by some hilarious jokes but, eventually, even though I enjoyed those two features, I was just smilling from time to time and never really laughing out loud. So, I guess it is not my type of humor, unfortunately. Still, it remains a very well made feature, probably the most impressive visually speaking by Mr Brooks. Indeed, it really gave the feeling of those old horror movies from the 30's. Furthermore, it is actually a great idea to turn this classic story into a comedy since the plot is, when you think about it for a few seconds, actually completely preposterous and ridiculous. The cast was pretty good and even though Gene Wilder is the big star as the title character, I above all enjoyed Igor who was stealing the show everytime he was on the screen. To conclude, I liked it, it is a classic and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
