Many of Brooks' films are hysterical in their own right but Spaceballs manages to take on a world of its own.
July 3, 2018
Spaceballs remains a funny enough movie on its own, even after all these years.

It`s a close call on recommending this movie, but ``Spaceballs`` does have some big laughs that are not to be missed
October 9, 2016
This sendup by director Mel Brooks incorporates the silliest aspects of all the major space adventures of the last decade, and the whole is a hilarious combination of its parts.

The jokes about the more calculating aspects of George Lucas's franchise are particularly telling. Remember, the Schwartz will be with you always.

The crew flings itself energetically through space in search of laughs, but it will never penetrate the galaxy where Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein traced their giddy orbits.
January 18, 2011
Unforgiveable then, unforgiveable now.
January 18, 2011
It's mostly forced humor all the way, a movie that rarely measures up to adequate kitsch.
January 18, 2011
The film's low-tech styling is roughly the cardboard inversion of the cinematic machines it parodies, and Brooks seems less inclined than usual to push the overkill urges too far.

Goofy parody mocks the Star Wars series.
January 23, 2010
Ainda que no consiga recapturar a acidez e a inteligncia de seus esforos da primeira fase da carreira, Brooks consegue divertir graas a algumas belas sacadas e ao simples conceito de Moranis como Dark Helmet.

This is possibly the last great film that Mel Brooks directed
June 28, 2009
Despite the dirty jokes hidden in plain sight ('Never underestimate the power of the Schwartz!'), Spaceballs is a PG-rated comedy that makes silliness sublime. [Blu-ray]

Mel Brooks will do anything for a laugh. Unfortunately, what he does in Spaceballs, a misguided parody of the Star Wars adventures, isn't very funny.

Mel Brooks trashes Star Wars; very funny

Typically, the best conceits end in pratfalls, and non-Brooks fans may find that the gravitational pull towards the thumpingly obvious outweighs the wit.

One of the few screwball comedies that everyone must experience at least once.
