If Mel Brooks stars in, acts in, or directs a film, start holding your sides before you watch it. You know hilarity will ensue -- from the characters (think Igor) to the quips ("Werewolf? There wolf.") and the surreal situation (Frankenstein's fiance marries the monster). There is nothing safe on the screen from Brooks's silly and sometimes sophomoric humor. Starting to chuckle just thinking about it? Go on and delight in the memory of one of the funniest Mel Brooks movies of our time. Click below to start.
Mel Brooks, the director of Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, The Producers, High Anxiety and many other movies, has a way of poking fun of everything and then making it even funnier. Take Young Frankenstein, when the horses react each time Frau Blucher's name is mentioned. Brooks continues this gag until you can't help but laugh louder each time a horse whinnies. And when Igor's (Marty Feldman) hump moves from side to side as his popping eyes roll from side to side, it's pure visual comedy.
