5.0 out of 5 stars Funniest movie of all time, 21 July 2002
This review is from: Young Frankenstein [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
Both the editorial and the customer reviews are so thorough that one can only list one's personal favorite scenes. First of all, I found it very funny that Dr Frederick Frankenstein takes the TRAIN to Transylvania. Also the scene at the station where he asks the boy, "Pardon me boy, is this the Transylvania station?" Then of course, Inga who asks him from the back of the wagon, "Dr Frankenstein, vould you like a roll in ze hay?" and of course on the way to the castle, when the howl of a wolf is heard and Frederick says rhetorically "werewolf" whereupon Igor responds with some irritation, "There wolf", pointing to the woods, "and there castle", pointing straight ahead. There's also the redoubtable Frau Blucher, who insists on bringing him something to drink before he retires: "Brandy? Visky? Ovaltine? Varm Milk?" and the dramatic scene where the mystery of the violin player starts to unravel and she confesses, hysterically, "Yes! Yes! Yes! He vass my ... boyfriend!" The scene at the Bucharest Academy of Science where Frederick demonstrates the talents of the "monster" is a highlight among highlights, especially when the two of them start to tap dance and sing "Putting on the Ritz." Finally, Frederick's wicked smile when after the wedding ceremony, Inga asks him what he received in return for giving the monster some of his precious brain fluid. One doesn't need to be familiar with all the old classics that this movie sends up, in order to enjoy it on its own merits. I suppose it becomes more funny if you do know the classics, but this one can stand on its own feet very well. I reckon this must be the most hilarious movie ever made and it never fails to reward the viewer.
