A great, easy-to-watch parody of the Star Wars franchise--including its merchandising!--that also includes nods to "The Wizard of Oz," "Planet of the Apes," and Star Trek. I am always a fan of Bill Pullman's characters, and thought it was a lot of fun to see him here as Lone Starr in his tricked-out flying Winnebago.

My favorite parody, and one of the few movies I can watch continuously without getting bored and quote every line of.

Genius, and stupid, and a great biting satire on the Star Wars franchise (courtesy of Mel Brooks himself, the mastermind, selling us his merchandise as Yogurt). Low brow and hilarious, a must-see for fans of the original Star Wars. Great cast of stars. John Candy at his best.

One of my favorite Mel Brooks films! A bad guy named Pizza the Hutt, a good guy named Yogurt, and of course "Spaceballs - the Flamethrower!" - a dig on the marketing genius that is George Lucas.

I had hoped this movie might've gotten better with Time. It hasn't.

A good parody film. A bit hokey at times, but fans of this genre will appreciate it.

This is another great example of Mel Brooks' comedic genius. I have seen this movie at least fifty times, and still never get tired of it. The script is very good, and there is a lot of good acting. If you are a fan of off beat comedy then I would highly recommend seeing this movie at least once.

This movie represents some of the best and some of the worst moments of Mel Brooks' long career! I've seen it a dozen times and it still makes me laugh! There is nothing subtle in this movie....the gags are obvious and a little less than "PC". When I was going through chemotherapy, this movie was a great laugh on a bad day...
