Mel Brooks's 1987 parody of the Star Wars trilogy is a jumble of jokes rather than a comic feature, and, predictably, some of those jokes work better than others. The cast, including Brooks in two roles, more or less mimics the principal characters from George Lucas's famous story line, and the director certainly gets a boost from new allies (SCTV graduates Rick Moranis and John Candy) as well as old ones (Dick Van Patten, Dom DeLuise). Watch this and wait for the sporadic inspiration--but don't be surprised if you find yourself yearning for those years when Brooks was a more complete filmmaker (Young Frankenstein). --Tom Keogh

A spoof of the Star Wars series, with Mel Brooks playing the dastardly president of an alien race out to steal the air supply of a neighboring planet. Fearless - and clueless - space heroes Lone Starr (Pullman) and his half/man half dog sidekick Barf (Candy) wage interstellar warfare to free Princess Vespa (Zuniga) from the evil Dark Helmet (Moranis). Along the way they encounter the wise little creature Yogurt (Brooks) who teaches them the mystical power of "The Schwartz."… (more)
