Directed by Mel Brooks
I chose this film to bring to a friend's movie night a couple of years ago when I was being set up on a blind date. At the time I was unaware of who Mel Brooks was so I was under the impression I was bringing a classic Western. Apparently, a couple of years ago I was an idiot. Anyway, this film was so painfully unfunny that it made the whole night awkward. Wow. It's fun having something else to blame for a date not going well.
Basically, a greedy railroad supervisor Hedley Lamarr (GET IT??? LIKE THE ACTRESS?? GET IT???) is trying to figure out how to empty the town of Rock Ridge so he can build his railroad. Are the endless fart jokes or the racism jokes more uncomfortable? You decide!!
I can't even say the comedy simply didn't age well because I am pretty sure I would never find this type of humor funny. So don't watch it this or risk ruining your love life.
First time the fart sound was committed to film. What brave pioneers these men were.
