Mel Brooks has been making movies and parodies since the 60's and I've seen a lot of them and Spaceballs is the best.
The story is that the leaders of planet Spaceball have wasted all their air and extorting all the air from their neighboring planet of Druidia. And to do so by kidnapping the princess of the planet, Princess Vespa. But she is rescued by Captain Lone Starr, who was hired by her father, before the Spaceballs capture her. And the rest of the movie has Lone Starr, Princess Vespa, her droid Dot Matrix, and Lone Starr's mawg, half man, half dog partner Barf trying to keep away from the Spaceballs and foil their plans.
The movie takes a lot of references from Star Wars but also takes a lot from other sci-fi and blockbuster films from around the time, like Star Trek, Alien, The Wizard of Oz, Rambo, and even Dumbo.
Acting in the movie is great for each character is awesome spoofs of the characters they're parodying.
The writing in this film is awesome in taking those references making some truly hilarious scenes and rememberable quotes that still make me laugh.
Personally I've seen this movie a couple dozen times... okay a couple hundred times and can recite most of the lines my heart and every time I see it I can still laugh at the jokes and situations and still is a treat to watch.
