1974's Mel Brooks classic BLAZING SADDLES is one of the funniest movies of all time. No matter how many times I see it, it still makes me laugh for every bit of its 93 minutes. SO many classic moments: "Howard Johnson's right!" "Work, work, work, HELLO boys!" "Think of your secretary, sir" "It's HEDley.." "Camptown ladies sing that song, doo dar, doo dar"....LOL where do you stop? Richard Pryor was one of the writers, alongside Mel Brooks of this comedy classic. When you realize that Brooks also wrote, directed and released YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN the same year as this, the level of his genius in the 70's knocks you out. Harvey Korman:hilarious. Madeline Kahn: classic as Lily Von Shtupp. Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder...the laughs just keep on coming. Hey, I didn't get a harumph out of that guy! As UN-PC as you get and as funny as you get.
Brooks and Pryor trying to point out the absurdity of racism is likely lost on today's soft audience, but the sheer volume of laughs is astonishing. A Comedy Classic and an LOL A.
