In the 70´s Mel Brooks made some Hilarious funny films.So when I saw the film it was a bit of a Disappointment because the film has a very funny idea but it´s mostly silly.It´s a spoof on Hitchcock films and some are very silly but it also includes some very funny spoofs on Psycho and the Birds.3/5
