Don't forget about the cah-raayzy visual punning! He """ jammed""" the signal wowweee!
i fucking dare somebody to link that tag.
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.
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.

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.

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.

I almost hate St*r W*rs enough to 1-star this.
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!
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.
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.
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.
I also got confirmation last week that the "assholes" scene is extremely funny to 5 year old girls.
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.
