Overview

In this spoof of STAR WARS and a handful of other sci-fi flicks from the 1970s and '80s, space-bum-for-hire Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-dog/half-man sidekick, Barf (John Candy), must rescue a spoiled Druish princess (Daphne Zuniga) from the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) in time to pay off Pizza the Hut. With SPACEBALLS, director Mel Brooks is at it again, this time with a science-fiction parody with all the blue-screen special effects and weird makeup (though in this film, things are always slightly off-kilter and unpolished). Here, maverick space travelers set out to save the planet Druidia, which is being harassed by the Spaceballs, a sinister group attempting to pilfer Druidia's air resources. Among the many gags and jokes is a hilarious parody of a classic scene from ALIEN. Mel Brooks himself makes one of his funniest acting appearances as Yogurt, a send-up of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK's Yoda.

Total Film 05-01-2012 3 stars out of 5 -- "Painfully punny and overcooked to perfection....It's the gloriously loony ALIEN send-up with John Hurt that's the biggest gut-buster."
New York Times 06-24-1987 "...An ambitious sendup....Gentle, harmless satire than occasionally has real bite..."
Entertainment Weekly 05-13-2005 "The spoofs on marketing tie-ins and insecure tyrants have grown even more relevant..."
