There’s plenty in the crosshairs of Mel Brooks’ cherished spoof, Spaceballs. Star Wars is clearly the main focus, but you’ll find happy nods to Star Trek, and a bunch of other science fiction productions. It’s an uneven film certainly, and always was, but the belly laughs remain plentiful. Heck, just the mere sight of Rick Moranis as Darth Helmet is generally enough to get the guffawing going.
He’s not alone, though. The late, great John Candy is Chewbacca knock-off, Barf, and you don’t have to look too far to see the inspiration for Princess Vespa and Pizza The Hutt. All of this comedy talent now comes to the screen too in high definition, too, with the Spaceballs Blu-ray presenting the film in 1080p resolution, with a suitably beefy sound mix alongside.
The extras, though, are where the rest of the fun is to be found. There’s a lot to get through here, with highlights in particular being the Mel Brooks commentary track. It’s not massively information, but it is most certainly entertaining. If you want a bit more background information on the movie instead, then you’re better off checking out the documentary that’s also included on the disc. There’s a nice piece, too, that praises the work of John Candy.
It’s hard to avoid the fact that every criticism you can aim at Spaceballs is probably true. It’s dated, its targets are easy, and there’s probably a better film in the core idea than the one we ultimately got. But there’s no getting away from it: the movie remains an absolute hoot. Easily rewatchable, and endearingly funny, it deserves to find a place in any sci-fi fan’s collection. Darth Helmet commands it.
