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 (SCTVgraduates 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

The classic "combing the planet" scene has stuck in my head since I first seen it on VHS as a kid. I have watched it numerous times through the years and always loved it. Recently I have found my son watching and rewatching it, also loving it! Some movies truly live forever. I had to pick this up when it was $2 during the Black Friday week sales on here.
