The farce is with you in this "uproarious salute to science fiction" The Hollywood Reporter that teams comedy legend Mel Brooks with an all-star cast of cutups including John Candy Splash, Rick Moranis Ghostbusters and Bill Pullman Ruthless People! When the evil Dark Helmet Moranis attempts to steal all the air from planet Druidia, a determined Druish Princess Daphne Zuniga, a clueless rogue Pullman and a half-man/half-dog creature who's his own best friend Candy set out to stop him! But with the forces of darkness closing in on them at ludicrous speed, they'll need the help of a wise imp named Yogurt Brooks and the mystical power of "The Schwartz" to bring peaceand merchandising rightsto the entire galaxy!
Mel Brooks's 1987 parody of the Star Wars trilogy is a jumble of jokes rather than a comic feature, and, predictably, some of those jokes work better than others. The cast, including Brooks in two roles, more or less mimics the principal characters from George Lucas's famous story line, and the director certainly gets a boost from new allies SCTV graduates Rick Moranis and John Candy as well as old ones Dick Van Patten, Dom DeLuise. Watch this and wait for the sporadic inspiration--but don't be surprised if you find yourself yearning for those years when Brooks was a more complete filmmaker Young Frankenstein. --Tom Keogh
