I used to watch this with Blazing Saddles back-to-back a lot while I was growing up. It's one of Mel Brooks' better movies, and a great performance by everyone involved (including a bunch of the same people in a lot of his movies).

Take an old Frankenstein movie and run it through Mel Brooks' head. That about sums it up.

A classic

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, except 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'. Basically, with both movies, I was expecting to be blown away by some hilarious jokes but, eventually... read more

Had Mel Brooks not directed High Anxiety then this would've been his greatest directed flick. Unfortunately, Frankenstein will forever be no. 2 to Anxiety in my book. If you look at the poster, it gives off the feeling of a cheap porno mess. If you look at the title, it sounds like as if a 9 yr. old juvenile delinquent stumbles upon the legendary lair of Victor Frankenstein, or something similar, ... read more

The grandson of Victor Frankenstein is a teaching surgeon who has spent his life living down the legend of his grandfather, even changing the pronunciation of his name. When the diary of his grandfather is brought to him, he takes a leave of absence to examine the family castle. Then things get a little silly.

My personal favourite Mel Brooks film

“I am fond of Mel Brooks' films, and for me Young Frankenstein is my favourite of his and also one of my absolute favourites of the genre. It is wonderfully loopy and an ingenious send-up of universal horror clichés. Young Frankenstein is wonderfully shot in a sumptuous black and white, while the costumes, sets and make-up are wonderfully kooky. The story is fun too, while the script is hilariously quotable and Mel Brooks' direction is great. What gives Young Frankenstein real staying power is the marvellously done Puttin' on the Ritz musical number, the brain depository(outrageous to the point of being hilarious), the scene with Igor behind the book-shelves when they were looking the skulls(the facial expression and the breaking into song kills me every time), the old dad speech(then he j” read more
