After squandering the fresh air in the distant planet Spaceball, the good-for-nothing President Skroob orders the arch-villain henchman, Dark Helmet, to abduct the adjacent planet Druidia's Princess Vespa to strong-arm her father, King Roland, to provide them with the code to the planet's atmosphere. Under those circumstances, the seasoned mercenary, Lone Starr, and his trusty half-human, half canine sidekick, Barf, will attempt to save the princess in distress, while at the same time, the ruthless loan shark, Pizza the Hut is after them. But in the end, only he who can harness the mystical and mighty force known only as "The Schwartz", will be able to save the day. Written by
Prince Valium's hair is modeled after Prince Adam, the main protagonist of the popular mid 1980s cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983) (TV Series). See more »
When Dark Helmet and Sandurz are watching the tape of Spaceballs, the scrolling words shown at the beginning of the tape are in a different font and do not match what was actually shown at the beginning of the movie. On the tape, the letters are all capitals, but are upper and lower case at the start of the actual film. See more »
With Mell Brooks at the helm of this gem how could it go wrong .
i would like to see part 2 of space-balls taking the crap out of Starwars 1 2 and 3 that would be cool. I got the VHS a long time ago , and now have the DVD i have watched it at least 100 times . and still can watch it over and over again. Some Things i liked. "may the Schwartz be with you" "what the hell it worked on star-trek" "Pizza the hut" "I told you we should have put more then five bucks in" and the part where they have instant cassettes where the movie is out before its finished.
I req this movie for all ages . 10/10
