Another spoof from the mind of Mel Brooks. This time he's out to poke fun at the Dracula myth. Basically, he took "Bram Stoker's Dracula," gave it a new cast and a new script and made a big joke out of it. The usual, rich English are attacked by Dracula and Dr. Van Helsing is brought in to save the day. Written by Jason Ihle <>

Dr. Steward: Yes you did, I saw you, you put it in your mouth. I think it was an insect.
Renfield: [thinks of an alibi] Oh, that was a raspberry.
Dr. Steward: Raspberry? We're not serving raspberries.

"Polodnik!!!!!" "Abalutsa!!!!"
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I still don't understand how this movie isn't regarded as a comedy classic. While still displaying appropriate atmosphere and thematic technique, this film just simmers with good, old-style Mel Brooks comedy, and is hilarious throughout. For starters, the script is well written, and contains a nice mix of simple gags and more subtle comedy. Similarly, while the movie is clearly satire, it displays more than enough original material to warrant genuine praise. As is often the case, however, all these facts pale in comparison to one simple truth: the performers MAKE this film. Leslie Neilsen and Mel Brooks shine as two of the major characters, while smaller gems are found in the performances of Steven Webber and Peter MacNicol; truly, MacNicol's performance is unbelievable, and is a testament to his range as an actor. Bottom line, this is simply a lovely film, and deserves much more respect than it has been given, both commercially and critically. If you haven't, do yourself a favor, and watch this movie, although you might want to watch a handful of the classic Dracula films first, just for comedic context. Enjoy!!
