(1987) dir Mel Brooks w/Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga, John Candy, Joan Rivers, Rick Moranis, Brooks [96 min]
The king of pop-culture spoofs, Mel Brooks turns his comedic talents to the sci-fi genre in this amazingly funny send-up of Star Wars and its ilk. Pullman stars as Lone Starr, a space rogue, who is paid a handsome sum to rescue Princess Vespa (Zuniga) from the clutches of the evil Lord Dark Helmet (Moranis). With the help of his loyal half-man, half-dog sidekick Barf (Candy), a bitchy droid (Rivers) and master of the Schwartz, Yogurt (Brooks), Starr blasts into space in his flying Winnebago and collides with some of the funniest gags in the galaxy.
