9 out of 10

Spaceballs is a 1987 American parody film co-written and directed by Mel Brooks. The film stars Mel Brooks, Bill Pullman, John Candy and Rick Moranis. It also features Daphne Zuniga, Dick Van Patten, and the voice of Joan Rivers. It was released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer on June 24, 1987, and was met with a mixed reception. It later became a cult classic and one of Brooks's most popular films. Its plot and characters parody the original Star Wars trilogy, as well as other sci-fi franchises including Star Trek, Alien, and the Planet of the Apes films.

This is truly a classic. Done well like all Mel Brooks movies with funny jokes that any sci-fi fan would enjoy. If you have never seen Star Trek or Star Wars, its humor will likely be lost on you. A definite must see for children and adults!

Planet Spaceball's President Skroob sends Lord Dark Helmet to steal Planet Druidia's abundant supply of air to replenish their own, and only Lone Starr can stop them.
