I was watching this video of birds swearing and was laughing so much that it set me in the mood for a comedy. This film seemed to be the best choice.
I have seen this several times, and each time is just as funny as the last. All of the cast members in this were perfect in their roles, not a dud in sight. The dialogue was great with plenty of memorable one-liners and jokes. Some gags were a bit too silly, but they were far and few between. Some jokes would not be allowed today.
The script is an almost perfect recreation of a film called Zero Hour! Here is a good YouTube video with comparisons between the films (the producers had to buy the rights to the original film).
This film ranks just behind Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Monty Python’s Life of Brian in my all-time funniest films list. Blazing Saddles is not far behind, along with Young Frankenstein which I must watch again.
