Lending his burlesque touch to 1970s genre revision, Mel Brooks followed his hit "western" Blazing Saddles with this parody of 1930s Universal horror movies. Determined to live down his family's reputation, Dr. Frederick Frankenstein (co-screenwriter Gene Wilder) insists on pronouncing his name "Fronckensteen" and denies interest in replicating his grandfather's experiments. This was one of the best comedy classic of all time which is saying a lot.

This is vintage Mel Brooks - one of the director's very best. He finds the elusive line between lowbrow comedy and some high-quality satire and turns in a consistently funny and nostalgic sendup of classic horror films. This is a lot smarter than "Scary Movie," and understands film history quite a bit more, as well.

One of Brooks better spoofs, but not as funny as I remembered it to be...in fact, it's really only Marty Feldman who supplies the laughs; without him, it would've fallen completely flat. Worth seeing just for his Igor though.

Brooks and Wilder's collaboration stands the tests of time. It's universally considered one of the funniest movies ever, and I would agree with that statement. A fun, goofy parody of the Frankenstein films.

my favorite movie parody of all time. mel brooks makes yet another hilarous movie. gene wilder is simply amazing as doctor frankenstein, not to mention the wonderful acting of peter boyle, marty feildman, cloris leachman, and teri garr. the movie is hilarous from begining to the end. the laughs never stop coming yet it in no way resembles the parodies of tody because of the fact that it has a story line

When it comes to comedy, there is no mind like that of Mel Brooks. In "Young Frankestein," Brooks parodies the nonsensical story of classical horror. Gene Wilder, Teri Garr, and Marty Feldman make up the principal cast and have some of the greatest comedic chemistry I've ever seen. Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman, Peter Boyle, and Kenneth Mars make up the ensemble, bringing even greater hilarity to the wacky side-characters that Brooks' films are so famous for.
