    "If you like old school comedy then this movie is just what you have been looking for. A little corny but still funny. This movie can be a little slow at times and lack suspense but quickly rebounds 28th silly connotations. Comedy classic that is a must own for any comedy fan!"

    "I remember this movie from when I was a little girl. Mel Brooks was at the top of his game at this time period. And this may have very well been his best movie ever. If you never saw Spaceballs."

    "This is my favorite Mel Brooks film, by far. The studios initially refused to let him make it in black and white... even the cinematographer said he was crazy. Crazy like a fox! This is a masterpiece! The black and white is rich, lushous! It is a true homage to all the classic horror movies like Frankenstein, Dracula and the Wolfman. The cast is amazing, a snapshot in time, of some of the greatest comedians, Gene Wilder, Madeline Khan, Peter Boyle, Cloris Leachman, Marty Feldman and Teri Garr. A timeless classic, still funny after all these years."
