Aspiring filmmakers Mel Funn, Marty Eggs and Dom Bell go to a financially troubled studio with an idea for a silent movie. In an effort to make the movie more marketable, they attempt to recruit a number of big name stars to appear, while the studio's creditors attempt to thwart them. The film contains only one word of dialogue, spoken by an unlikely source.Written by

One word describes this movie: predictable. Unlike other Brooks movies, where a wacky scene, joke, etc. comes out of nowhere, in Silent Movie you kinda know what is gonna happen next in virtually every scene, eliminating a lot of hearty belly laughs. You kinda get the feeling you've seen some of the scenes before from The Three Stooges. The funniest thing about the movie was the weird totally different look of the 3 main characters, with Mel Funn's sailor outfit, Marty Eggs' aviator gear, and Dom Bell's pre-1950s shirt, slacks, and wide-brim hat. Overall, a very disappointing Brooks film but not as much of a snore-fest as Young Frankenstein.
