spaceballs > star wars

This is undeniably true.

I am disappointed in the lack of "short sweet and helmet" tag, however.

infinite zest
I never liked Spaceballs. Besides a couple of fun throwaway references in History of the World Pt. 1 Mel Brooks didn't go full-reference-mode until this one, ushering in so many Family Guys and Mel Brooks' decline from comedic genius to Parody Guy. But it's better than Star Wars.

Don't forget about the cah-raayzy visual punning! He """ jammed""" the signal wowweee!

@meme fixed.

i fucking dare somebody to link that tag.

@zesty

not entirely true. "good is dumb" is up there with mongo socking a horse. brooks still had jokes, and his style didn't change as much as you are implying. also checkmate: rick moranis.

Scrimmjob
Movies like High Anxiety were also filled with just as many stupid puns. I still love em though!

This film had a much bigger impact on me than Star Wars ever did. THis was a big deal on HBO for me as a kid.
Oscar Wildcat
When we marched off to the first Star Wars,
banners and flags hung on everyone's doors.
Boys frolicked and sang in the streets
and the church bells rang.

But the burning in my heart,
and the memory smolders on.
Of the Star Wars Holiday Special
and Bea Arthur's bum.

The Mothership
I have seen this movie more times than I have seen Star Wars (IV-VI), and that is saying something.

Every line in this film = gold.
That guy
I almost hate St*r W*rs enough to 1-star this.
yogarfield
i got you boo.

That guy
priceless

Another 80s comedy that we all really really want to think was hilarious, but is really just an Adam Sandler comedy minus the cartoony violence.

Not rating this because apparently I'm wrong, but ... look, it's Rick Moranis in an oversized helmet! And he's got a neck tie! Oooooh, this is gonna be WACKY!
The Mothership
love you Bort, but you're just wrong here.

Potrod
It's fine if you don't like it, but calling it "an Adam Sandler comedy minus the cartoony violence" makes no sense. That's not an accurate description of Spaceballs or Adam Sandler movies.

Bort
I thought that might be the case. I tend to hate everything about the 80s, having lived through them, so maybe I'm fundamentally incapable of enjoying "Spaceballs". I am literally the last person they should pick as a guest on "I Love the 80s".

The only good thing about the 80s was Johnny Hitler.

love you Bort, but Mothership is right.

i typed this while taking a gigantic shit. i hope you're ok with this.

StanleyPain
It's a genuinely funny parody back when parodies were actually aimed at established things instead of movies and tv shows that were only 6 seconds old and would never last, culturally, making the entire thing dated as hell. I would say Spaceballs works because it is generally timeless.
Not sure you could ever really say that about Adam Sandler movies which have just become one, long, exhausting experiment in how far a Hollywood grifter can keep pushing the envelope and making money for as little work as possible.

Bort
A person taking a gigantic shit would itself be a punchline in an 80s comedy, or an Adam Sandler comedy. I'm just sayin'.

But in real life it's a measure of your sincerity, which I appreciate.

yogarfield
kiss me you big dumb bastard

boner
I know this movie is stupid but it's basically a Mad magazine parody that somehow got produced as a feature. And I think that's what 8 year old me liked so much.

boner
I also got confirmation last week that the "assholes" scene is extremely funny to 5 year old girls.

BHWW
If anything, it's still somewhat timely, especially considering how everything from the toys/collectables to hair products have been prepared for The Force Awakens. "Moichandising", indeed.
