I like Mel Brooks, comedies and Mel Brooks. Why did I say Mel Brooks twice? I just love Mel Brooks. This movie is always fun to watch. First of all, I don’t think this film could have been made today, it probably would have been boycotted due to all the non-political correctness. The movie really does do a good job making fun of everybody and has some really classic scenes. Cleavon Little was awesome as the Sheriff and I love how he teams up with Gene Wilder later on in the movie. Madeline Kahn’s rendition of “I’m Tired” will not only make you laugh but oddly get stuck in your head. The wild west is a really good setting for a comedy and I hope to see more western comedies in the future.
