Format: DVD
Mel Brooks had already parodied everything else -- westerns, Hitchcock films, spies, silent movies -- by the time he got to science fiction. The result: "Spaceballs," a painfully punny and deliriously wacky little spoof of Star Wars. It's probably Brooks' goofiest movie (it has a character called BARF!), but it's still loads of fun.

The Spaceballs -- led by Colonel Sandurz (George Wyner) and Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) -- are planning to steal all of the peaceful planet Druidia's air. So they try to capture Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga), who has just run away from an arranged marriage to a narcoleptic prince (along with her faithful droid Dot Matrix). Their plan: blackmail the king into turning off the Air Shield, allowing them to suck away the atmosphere!

But the princess and Dot are rescued by the rakish mercenary Lone Star (Bill Pullman) and his faithful mog, Barf (John Candy). The unlikely little group soon finds themselves on the sandy planet of Vega, where Lone Star begins to learn about the mystical Schwartz from the merchandising know-it-all Yogurt. But is his Schwartz enough to defeat Dark Helmet's?

For the record, this is the least subtle movie Mel Brooks has made. I mean, he's never been a subtle director to begin with, but this movie has so many puns that you can literally see them coming a mile away -- when the President of the Spaceballs starts yelling that he wants them to comb the desert, you know exactly what you'll be seeing in two seconds.

And it's pretty darn funny. Brooks takes hilarious pokes at "Star Wars," "Star Trek," "Aliens" ("Oh no... not again!") and "Planet of the Apes," and there are plenty of fun in-jokes that reflect it (the transporter accident that causes the president to end up, um, facing the wrong way).

Format: DVD
Before I begin explaining what makes Spaceballs great I feel there is a need for a disclaimer: if you don't like sci-fi TV shows and films (especially Star Wars) the chances are that half the jokes will be lost on you. Furthermore, it should be noted from the start that Mel Brooks's humour really is an aquired taste - and whether you will enjoy this film really does seem to pivot on whether you will enjoy the ridiculos and silly in a film or not, since most of the comedy arrises from the fantastic, silly plays on words or simply slapstick.
All this perhaps sounds somewhat juvenile, but it is the slickness of performance (especially the fantastic Rick Moranis as Dark Helmet) and the sheer wit of Brooks that makes this film so much more than it should be. Dark Helmet himself is a hilarious parody of Darth Vader, the humour being conjured by the conflict of Helmet's nerdy interior with helmet up to his harsh Vader-like act with his helmet on, further helped by his hilarious voice as Vader. Indead Moranis's Helmet plays fantastically well off George Wyner's Colonel Sandurz who supplies the straight man to the absurd Moranis, perfectly mimicking the sci-fi number 2.
While of course a spoof movie in itself will hardly appeal to all, especially those not too fond of sci-fi, Spaceballs is probably the best around of its genre and, while it doesn't offer the variety of movie references for a film buff that Hot Shots might, Brooks's clever ideas and scenarios more than make up.

First of all what can you say about this film, its hilarious from start to finish, if you have never seen this film before you are in for a treat, Directed by the King of Parody MEL BROOKS.. It stands up STAR WARS, STAR TREK, ALIEN, PLANET OF THE APES..Starring Bill Pullman as Lone Starr & the late great John Candy as his faithfull sidekick Barf a half Man/ half Dog, take on Rick Moranis (Dark Helmet) & his army of SPACEBALLS to rescue the beautiful Druish Princess Vespa & to pay back the gooey Pizza the Hutt, Also a little creature named Yogurt teaches Lone Starr the ways of the SCHWARTZ ! "SO MAY THE FARCE BE WITH YOU" The Blu Ray is excellent hardly any grain visible from a 25 year old film ,DTS sound...A true comedy CLASSIC from the late 80's. "GO NOW & BUY ITS A BARGAIN !"

one of mel brooks greatest movies. it is starwars , startrek , flash gordon. every sci-fi movie ever rolled into one with great characters including yougurt , barf , lonestar and dark helmet. it has the occasional swearing but it only adds to the humor if you havent seen this movie you havent lived. filled with many jewish puns every one will personaly wet themselves. "it is like the temple of doom" "well it sure isn't the temple beth din"! buy it today you wont regret it may the schwartz be with you !!!!!!!!!!!!

Format: Blu-ray
SPACEBALLS spoof on the sci-fi Horror Genre- star wars, star trek, Alien, planet of the Apes
all Hillariously funny performances by most of the main Actors in the film
still incredibly funny 30 years later
Rick moranis as Dark Helmet-Darth vader spoof
George weiner as Colonel sanders
Mel brook's plays the President of Spaceball city
a Great scene with Michael winslow who plays the Radar operator in the film
the late Great John candy as Barf-chewbacca spoof
Bill pullman who plays Lonestar- Han solo spoof
Daphne Zuniga who plays Princess Vespa- Princess Leia spoof

this U.K. release is ALL REGIONS so must have the exact same blu-ray transfer as the U.S. blu-ray version
which i have, the picture quality does look very cleaned up and clear for sure
better than the old dvd release

sadly only some of the special features have been carried over from the dvd release
the U.S. 25th Anniversary blu-ray edition has loads more special features
this U.K. release only has
Mel brooks Audio commentary track
special behind the scenes footage
Original theatrical trailer & teaser trailer

the U.S. 25th Anniversary blu-ray the cover art says 25th Anniversary
has a new featurette FORCE YOURSELF!
