A hilarious comedy that's fun, campy, and razor sharp. This is the best Mel Brook's has to offer. Infinitely re watchable.

Yes, it IS a parody film - but the, um, humor was a bit over the top for me and I bailed pretty early.

Jokes about rape are NOT funny. Not only are there at least two jokes about rape, but most of the so-called jokes are either crude or down-right unconscionable. Given that this movie has become a cult-classic, I expected so much more. I expected writing of clever humor that is difficult to come by, not the cheapest, rude and inappropriate humor common to teens trying to impress their friends.

I recommend you see Texas Across the River instead.

Blazing Saddles is on my "Top 10" movies of all time. It's over-the-top and is chock full of quotable lines and memorable scenes. If it's on TV, it's one of those that I'll have to watch at least a few minutes.

Highly recommended!

Funny movie that makes fun of everyone and everything...However, if you are over sensitive like lots of people are these days,,don't see or your head will explode!!

Overrated comedy- the funniest scene is the one where the cowboys are eating beans around a campfire and are farting copiously.

Politically incorrect film that skewered everybody equally.
Gucci saddlebag?
Over the top? Yep.
However, it still relevant today on how much work to counter racism.

Irreverent, witty, and hilarious, this movie is the spoof to end all spoofs of Western films.

Particularly hilarious are prancing, lisping, mincing sequences to the tune of “Throw up your hands/Stick out your tush/Hands on your hips/Give 'em a push”—but certainly not more hilarious than lines such as “I hired you people to get a little track laid, not to jump around like a bunch of Kansas City faggots!” (How either of these serves to “ridicule prejudice, injustice, and apathy” is not immediately clear.) One looks with interest to reviews of DVDs that portray African Americans as shiftless simpletons and Asians as inscrutable villains.
