An hilarious and dreadfully quotable film that derives it's humour more from good delivery than wit.

I dunno. I guess its pretty funny. I hate parody movies. They are cheap and stupid to where they are almost unbearable. This one definetely tops the genre. But when you put it against the Scary Movies and Epic Movie films, that is not a great accomplishment. The star-studded cast definitely raises the interest in the film, but it just wasn't enough for me.

Witless Mel Brookes parody that tries to be the Blazing Saddles of sci-fi, but has all the subtlety of a super star destroyer. Moranis' character is called Dark Helmet. Oh, my sides.

Some of the parody attempts of the Star Wars franchise are hurried and goofy, but most of them land comedicly and the comic energy of this spoof film is contagious.

A typical spoof with a great cast. Films emulated were Star Wars, Wizard of Oz, Lawrence of Arabia, Planet of the Apes and more. The script was fresh, effects were almost similar to the films spoofed. Lines like "So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb." "I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate." and "1, 2, 3, 4, 5? That's amazing! I've got the same combination on my luggage!" Spaceballs made me laugh a few times, which is enough to make a memorable comedy since it has spoofed such popular films.

A funny film that isn't just for sci-fi fans

In a distant galaxy, the home planet of the Spaceballs is in danger of losing all of its oxygen. The largest ship in the Spaceballs' fleet, Spaceball One, is sent to drain the nearby planet of Druidia of all its atmosphere.

On Druidia, a princess (Daphne Zuniga) is about to be married to the last available prince (JM J. Bullock), but she runs off and the princess runs away because she doesn't want to marry this man. The king (Dick Van Patten) hires the rogueish "Lone Starr" (Bill Pullman) and his partner, "Barf the Mawg" (the late John Candy).

As they run from Spaceball One, commanded by "Dark Helmut" (Rick Moranis), they meet the master of the Schwartz, "Yogurt" (Mel Brooks, in one of two roles).

The movie is packed with many sight gags and jokes. None of which are offensive....
