Wilder's best imitation of a Mel Brooks film.

Hard to believe, when you watch this film and laugh yourself stupid at the gentle ridiculousness on display, one would think that this is a Mel Brooks movie. But no, it's Gene Wilder showing us just how much he has learned from the comedy master. The major Brooks players are here: Wilder, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn. The movie is very funny, and shows that Gene Wilder is just as good at directing as he is at acting.
