One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Blazing Saddles:
This is the most tedious, unfunny, overrated movie of all time. It’s interesting that this is from the same man who produced Spaceballs, which was actually rather humorous (though also quite tedious at times). I’ll always be at a loss to understand why people think it’s so funny. His utter lack of subtlety is terrible to behold.
Unfunny. Badly timed. Tedious gags. Silly. Uninteresting. Dull. Simple-minded. Fast-forward. Regret buying. Give it away.
…I thought this was funny but now looking at it as an adult, there’s really not much funny about the bathroom humor and racial jokes. In fact, it’s downright insulting and degrading. And it’s not insulting and degrading in a funny way. There’s no way I can recommend this unfunny nonsense.
One word describes this movie perfectly PATHETIC.
THIS is Mel Brook’s WORST movie ever. I think it’s sad how so many great actors would’ve been in it, but THAT was then.
Usually EVERYTIME I read a review on Amazon, at least ONE [or two] people give any item “1 star”, but I’m disgusted to find so many [rednecks?] giving this piece of trash “5 stars”.
So….I’LL be ‘that one person’!!
The OVER-hype-n-tripe reissuing of THIS film on VHS or DVD is also pretty weird considering IT probably used the “N word” more than ANY other film in the past 30+ years! I can’t believe any TV channel [cable or broadcast] would still even show it!
With it’s ‘synthesized animal abuse’ & ‘over-use of the N word’ it should’ve been burned & tossed years ago…
Mel thought it would be funny to invite “horses to bring their owners to the drive-ins” on it’s first release, but I think Mel did MANY GREAT other films like “The Producers” [his BEST!] “High Anxiety” & “Silent Movie”……….so STOP re-issuing this piece of garbage over & over…OK??
This Movie is so Not Funny! I sat down and watched this flick with some friends who loved it and i have to say what a waiste of my time. This movie tried so hard to be unny but was not funny at all. I know a lot of rebiews were good about this movie, maybe good to the older crowd who are in there 40’s and 50’s but for the hip young generation and sophisticated one like mine in the teens and twenties this movie is pure crap. Nothing good about it at all. I just can not believe people find Blazing Saddles such a great comedy. Oh well I hated the movie.
Bad.Boring.Old. What else
I had such high hopes for this film. It came out the same year as YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN, which is one of the best comedies ever, and Mel Brooks’ best movie. And yet this is the worst one I’ve seen. I’ve seen all but five, and only missed the ones that aren’t really important, like LIFE STINKS. BLAZING SADDLES has a good cast, lots of funny people, and people who work well with Brooks, like Gene Wilder and Madeline Khan. But there’s about three good jokes in the whole film, and if you blink, you’ll miss them. One of the most embarrassing movies I’ve ever seen.
If you like tasteless juvenile humor then you’ll probably like “Blazing Saddles.” “Blazing Saddles” is a long, drawn-out movie with an absurd plot and much of the humor is at the high school level. This movie is long on hype and short on substance so don’t waste your money on it. If I could, I’d give this movie a zero.
I don’t find this movie funny at all. It’s so boring thatI did not finish the DVD. I regret buying it even though it cost me only 10 dollars.
Blazing Saddles is one awful movie. I have not see a movie in this day of age that is so dumb.
