    "Another Python movie! So glad this is on this list. Honestly, I prefer this over Holy Grail but I do understand why that one is preferred. Life of Brian doesn't have nearly as many references but it's still hilarious!"

    "I dunno what it is about Blazing Saddles but the racial humor doesn't feel dated. I know some people will still find some of the jokes offensive but I think they just reflect the racial climate at the time while also parodying it."

    "Mel Brooks' parodies on any subject is always filled with hilarity! I'm surprised he chose frankenstein to parody tho instead of more obvious ones like dracula but it works anyway so who am i to complain."

    "Pink Pnather is an absolute classic. I don't think I've laughed as much from any other old film as this one. That remake in the 2000s was an absolute atrocity."
