OK, keeping in mind that this is a movie aimed at the younger audience, I still found myself more amused by the actors themselves, than the storyline. With some great action scenes (particularly the rope scene in the car-yard) and some truely corny ones too, it was a mixed bag for me.

Highlights included: Andy Serkis' performance, the... umm... OK, so that was the highlight. The Corn Factor bits: the complete lie about Sodium Pentathol, the over-acting by... well, almost everyone, particularly Mickey Rourke... the Portugese Man of War model and it's ability to electrocute a fish into a skeleton in a split second... the whole concept... I tell you, they should have issued two small forks and a knob of butter with your tickets!

Overall, though the gizmo's weren't TOTALLY unrealistic, the effects used to emulate their actions were pretty lame (eg. Smoke Bomb scene... Just WHERE is the smoke coming from again?) but kids will probably still love it. After all, they can look at a block of wood and see a train, or a racecar, or... so should be able to fool themselves into liking the movie based on what it SHOULD have been, instead of the lame duck it turned out to be.

Product reviews for listing 3807: Spaceballs
Directed by Mel Brooks

Product image for SpaceballsThe Farce will be with you in this outrageously hilarious send-up of epic sci-fi movies, created by comic genius Mel Brooks. Boasting a cast of cosmic crazies, it's a four-star comedy sensation that scores eight trillion on the laugh meter!

Princess Vespa, whose hairstyle surely ranks as one of the universe's oldest creations, is kidnapped by the evil Dark Helmet. But fear not! Lone Star and his half man, half dog sidekick ... more...
