way more Helter Skelter.

June 24, 1987 - 2022: 35 years of: Spaceballs.


Spaceballs, the review.
The Mega-Maid spoof movie of all spoof-movies. Let's take the biggest sci-fi saga known to men and give it a Mel Brooks twist. Out of this galaxy, Spaceballs rhymes with the 80s superflux and, along other heavy blockbuster hitters like Ghostbusters and the Police Academy series, tops the humor-Charts and the Internet one-liner phenomenon. Ludicrous speed, GO !

"I am your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate."

Spaceballs, the cast.
Everything and everyone you'd expect to bring this project into greatness. The plain wise Yogurt, Princess Vespa, Lone Starr and his best-bud Barf and on the other end of the Force / Schwartz, the President Skroob and Colonel Sandurz ...along the cosmos's most evil of delicacy: Pizza The Hutt. A very very very special mention to Canadian actor Rick Moranis playing Lord Dark Helmet, the pinnacle of his career, he alone is worth the admission-price.

"Now you see that evil will always triumph ...because good is dumb."

Spaceballs, the story.
The typical Princess on the loose, gets captured by the evil Spaceballs and shall be released against a ransom. And in this funny-flaired future, breathing-air has become a highly sought after commodity. The maniacal goal is for the Spaceballs to suck all of the air out of the Princess's native Druidia, and transfer it to their own. Only one cocky-cowboy can change these demonic plans ...and get the girl. Slapstick humor and pop-culture innuendos, this is MAD on the silver-screen.

"Forget it, forget it, no more beaming ...this time I'm gonna walk."

Spaceballs, the legacy.
Having been blessed by George Lucas himself, this fourth-wall breaking supernova is as epic as the Original Trilogy combined. Again, in a funny twist, the cult-classic movie did not get an expected sequel, although the tempted title of "Spaceballs 2: The Search For More Money" was released to the public in 2015, to fans delight.

"There's been a new breakthrough in home-video marketing: instant cassettes. They're out in stores before the movie is finished."

Spaceballs, the eulogy.
