Episode 142: Spaceballs (1987)

SpaceballsThis pairing is Sci-Fi Comedy/Parody Films, and we're starting with one from the master, Mel Brooks, and his send-up of the Sci-Fi genre (and Star Wars in particular), 1987's Spaceballs! Starring Bill Pullman, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Daphne Zuniga, Dick Van Patten, George Wyner, Joan Rivers, and (of course), Mel Brooks, this film is an oddity in that it would actually work as a decent adventure film if you took the comedy out, but leaving the comedy in makes it a masterpiece! Borrowing from Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien, and countless other sci-fi classics, it makes fun of them all in a way that doesn't demean or lessen the originals! It's so tender and clearly affectionate in its fun-poking that George Lucas blessed the film with assistance and even a little footage donation!
