One to buy, and laugh forever,
By A Customer
This review is from: Blazing Saddles [VHS] (VHS Tape)
To my knowledge Mel Brooks has only ever made 3 good comedy movies (although he has made quite a few films in his career which aren't that bad). But Blazing Saddles is one comedy that can be classed as an all time classic. Set in the town of Rock Ridge, a new Sheriff is appointed to bring law and order to this once peaceful town. Now being ruled by thugs and gangs, in steps Sheriff Bart. The only problem is that the Sheriff is black and nobody in the town knew that until the day he arrived. The film is filled with great gags and punch lines from the opening seen where a railway track is being laid by coloureds and the Chinese (with the memorable songs 'I don't get a kick out of Champagne' & 'Camp town lady') to the scene at the campfire where too much beans can have a serious effect on your breathing ability through your noes. Loaded with laughter that will keep you amused for a long time...a must have movie.
