With Star Wars buzz set to reach fever pitch over the coming months as fans count down the arrival of The Force Awakens, it's as good a time as any to revisit Mel Brooks's science fiction parody Spaceballs and have a few laughs at the expense of George Lucas's space opera. Spoofing everything about Star Wars which can be spoofed and a range of other sci-fi classics for good measure, Spaceballs hits far more than it misses with its constant barrage of visual gags, terrible puns and childish pratfalls. Stormtroopers literally comb the area with a giant comb while diminutive Rick Moranis scowls from behind his oversized Darth Vader-like mask. Spaceballs might not be as sophisticated as Brooks's Young Frankenstein, but sometimes being childish and puerile can be far more entertaining. If you're a sci-fi movie fan then Spaceballs deserves a place on your Netflix To Watch list. What other great comedy gems would you recommend on Netflix? Why not tell us about them in the comments?
