Directed by Mel Brooks
I am going to be particularly nice to Mel Brooks in this review, since when Blazing Saddles comes around I will get nasty. This wasn't nearly as funny as The Producers but it wasn't a total cringe festival.
Basically, it's the story of Frankenstein again, but with more penis jokes. Now, I wasn't exactly clutching my sides, but I found the whole thing comical. I have seen so many painfully un-funny movies so maybe I have a higher tolerance.
The "Puttin' on the Ritz" number was included in a weird Muppet video that my siblings and I use to watch when we were very little. It was strange seeing it now. I don't know if Baby Amanda thought it was entertaining or not. Adult Amanda thought it was a bit obnoxious but still worth watching. Mel Brooks can do better and Mel Brooks can do a whole lot worse.
The "walk this way" joke inspired Aerosmith's song "Walk This Way".
