Blazing Saddles review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 11/26/12

Viewing this again to lighten my viewing of films since I've been watching loads of Cronenbergs and Lynch related flicks. The story revolves around Cleavon Little as Sheriff Bart and Gene Wilder as Jim, aka "The Waco Kid." It's racial themes never seem to date while the story despite its mess, is funny for its time. Funniest portions were the speech "I state your name...state your name," Sheriff Bart cold welcome to the town and audition for the criminals. Some characters can really test your patience and IQ, still the gags are relentless. A few laughable lines: Bart - "Excuse me while I whip this out." Governor Lepetomane - "Work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work, work. (looks at his secretary's breasts) Hello, boys. You have a good night's rest? I missed you."
Though some parts are better than the whole, Blazing Saddles entertains because of its groundbreaking methods in the genre of spoofs, comedy westerns. Definitely better than a Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
