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

You vill tell Doctor Seward there is a message for him in the lobby... and you will remember nothing of what I tell you.
[the valet goes to open Seward's chambers and nods her head. She opens the curtain to Seward's chambers and stands there with her mouth open for a few moments, then closes the curtain]

It's impossible for Mel Brooks to make a completely bad film (well, then again, there was "Life Stinks".......) and "Dracula - Dead and Loving It", while hardly up there with "Young Frankenstein", has enough good yuks in it to make it well worth watching. Leslie Nielsen, whose work in the "Naked Gun" series I am not fond of, is actually excellent here in his portrayal of the Count, i.e., in his Lugosi impersonation. Anne Bancroft (Mrs. Mel Brooks) makes the most of her little cameo as the gypsy woman. Worth a see.
