Mel Brooks has always been the master of satire. From classic comedy ventures like The Producers, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Men in Tights, he has always managed to tickle my funny bone. But one film in particular always got the giggles out of me more than any other, because it melded my favorite movie with his comedic skills. That was Spaceballs.
