I've always admired Mel Brooks' movies. The spoofs / parodies / references are very spot-on and, in some cases, very subtle and one requires sharp eyes or ears to spot that reference. They're also not sick or tasteless and one feels safe while watching his movies. Blazing Saddles is considered by many to be his greatest work and I couldn't agree more. Filled with amazingly funny scenes that requir... read more

He wore a shining star... and ever since the first time my brother and I saw this, we were hooked. It's got a little something to offend pretty much everyone, so it's an equal-opportunity offender.

Quotable, funny, and classic Mel Brooks. "How 'bout some more beans, Mr. Taggart?"

A classic

To be honest, even though I have seen almost all the movies directed by Mel Brooks (I think I’m missing only 3 of them by now), I'm afraid I have never been a really huge fan of his work. Anyway, since this movie is a huge classic, I was really eager to check it out. Following its reputation, I really expected the whole thing to be seriously hilarious but, to be honest, eventually, I thought it ... read more

The Ultimate Western Spoof. A town where everyone seems to be named Johnson is in the way of the railroad. In order to grab their land, Hedley Lemar (Harvey Korman), a politically connected nasty person, sends in his henchmen to make the town unliveable. After the Sheriff (Richard Farnsworth) is killed, the town demands a new sheriff from the Governor (Mel Brooks). Hedley convinces him to send the town the first black sheriff in the West. Bart (Cleavon Little) is a sophisticated urbanite who will have some difficulty winning over the townspeople.

Lindsay's Top 11 Favorite Films (Detailed Version) (11 movies items)

""So this movie and I go back a long, long way. And it was I found, in my uncle's chest, a movie called Father Goose. And it starred Cary Grant and Leslie Caron and nobody remembers it. But I loved it when I was like 11 or however old I was. And I loved it so much I wanted to dig through my uncle's video collection again to see what else he had. And uh... he didn't have any other Cary Grant movies but he said like, 'Well... maybe you'll like this one'." Blazing Saddles "Oh my god! I didn't get"

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"Blazing Saddles is beholden to the truth, and exposing it, and in this farcical western’s sights lies everything from the genocide in America’s history so often ignored by classic genre fare to the simple fact that cowboys eating beans around a campfire will eventually break glorious wind. More than 40 years after Mel Brooks’s box-office smash struck a nerve with audiences, it remains a high-water mark for cinematic hilarity, even if time and influence have inevitably dulled some of its sh"
