The filmdrunk post gushes over the 25th anniversary/milestone of Mel Brook's legendary comedic spoof of the sci-fi genre, Spaceballs. If you've never seen Spaceballs before, stop what you're doing and hunt down a copy now! It's literally one of the funniest movies ever made. I was only two years old when this film was first released but thanks to the power of VHS I probably watched it like 5,000 times as a small boy in the early 90's. In fact, I'm pretty sure I watched Spaceballs more times than Star Wars and Alien combined. So when reviewing Prometheus the other day, I said something about Michael Fassbender's character David making all the other assholes in the movie seem like major assholes in comparison, I subconsciously made a reference to this awesome Spaceballs scene:
Dear lawd that still gets me every time. I'll be 75 years old watching this with subtitles and still laugh my ass off. So here's to Mel Brooks and Spaceballs. Thanks.
