Mel never stops making me laugh
21 January 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Ya gotta love that Mel Brooks. The man behind Nude Bomb, Dracula Dead And Loving It, Space Balls, Robin Hood Men in Tights, and many others. The master of parody is funny in this one, as he stars as a WWII veteran now a complete nut in the funny farm. And now the son of his friend takes him all the way back to Italy, only to have him cause a lot of mayhem, and the results are complete chaos! At the same time, a doctor is trying to bring him back to the nut house for he is dangerous. And by golly she is right! There are many funny scenes, and lines that left me laughing for hours, I like the part where the guy gets arrested and shares a cell with a man who likes to strip himself naked. Or the part with the cathedral, and another one I find funny is when they visit his friend finally, check it out yourself. Anyways, this is recommended to all fans of Mel Brooks and his works. Watch it. You'll love it.
