Characters including Yoghurt, Pizza the Hutt, Dark Helmet, Lone Starr, Princess Vespa, and of course Barf, take you on a journey in space making fun of everything you know of the Star Wars trilogy.

Spaceballs Movie Review by James (9/20/2010)

Comedian-director Mel Brooks is mostly recognized throughout the film industry for his parodies of popular movie genres. For example, 1974's "Blazing Saddles" is a spoof of the western genre, and 1981's "History of the World Part 1" parodies the epic genre. But the director's 1987 effort "Spaceballs" tackles on a very...

Spaceballs Movie Review by Deborah (12/17/2007)

I am sorry, this movie is a classic. I grew up watching Mel Brooks's films and he never fails to deliver. This parody of Star Wars is just as good as the original.

Spaceballs Movie Review by Zara (4/3/2007)

This movie is funny, but not really, really funny.

It stars Bill Pullman in a parody role of the one that Harrison Ford played in the Star Wars movies.

This movie always made me laugh because Mel Brooks is a good director. He's done other movies which are funnier, but this one has more appeal to my generation.

He takes pieces of 'Star Trek', 'The Wizard of Oz', 'Alien' and many other movies and mixes them in with a hilarious take on the culture of 'Star Wars'. From the mass marketing campaigns to the...

Spaceballs Movie Review by Movie Addict (3/23/2007)

I generally like Mel Brooks. His original "Producers" was far superior to the recent remake. Here he spoofs "Star Wars," and does a fair job, but it is better as a skit than a movie.

Rick Moranis has the funniest role, that of a peculiarly infantile Darth Vader type who plays with tiny ''Spaceballs'' dolls when he thinks...
