King Roland of the planet Druidia is trying to marry his daughter Princess Vespa to Prince Valium, but Vespa is kidnapped by the evil race of the Spaceballs. The Spaceballs ask Roland a tremendous ransom: all the air of Druidia (you see, the air of Spaceball had serious pollution problems...). The King decides to offer a generous amount of money to a space rogue, Lone Starr, to persuade him to save Vespa. What follows is the parody of a _LOT_ of famous SF movies. Written by

The alien that pops out of John Hurts and starts singing hello my baby and dancing with the hat and cane is a parody of the Michigan J Frog loony tunes skit. See more »
When Lone Starr's Winnebago is overtaken by Spaceball One, the plaid pattern trail of Spaceball One is moving in the view through the windshield. Then the camera switches to show Lone Starr and Barf and the plaid light pattern reflecting off the back of the cabin is static. See more »
A joyous, hilarious fairy-tale (which just happens to be set in a galaxy resembling one far, far away, a long time ago)! Many cheap, childish, utterly irresistible gags. Special effects of sufficient quality that they don't distract. Excellent ensemble acting with Rick Moranis a real highlight. And a space Winnebago...
One of Mr. Brooks's finest efforts! When the cod-seriousness of Episodes I, II and III gets too much for you, just imagine Mace Windu with his Schwartz tangled and pop this movie on.
Now, it's getting a bit stuffy in here so I'm off to inhale some delightful Perri-air.
