Dir. Mel Brooks. 1987, 96 mins. 35mm. Mel Brooks, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga. “May the Schwarz be with you.” Mel Brooks unleashed a Star Wars
parody for the ages just four years after the release of Return of the Jedi
, affectionately tearing down George Lucas’s sacred cow with a serious of head-slapping one-liners and goofy, see-what-slap-sticks. The film’s villains include Rick Moranis’s penile Dark Helmet and a heap of grotesque latex known as Pizza the Hut, which should give you a pretty good idea of the film’s wondrously indifferent maturity level. Other highlights include Joan Rivers as the voice of the film’s sassy C3P0 surrogate Dot Matrix, and John Candy as a Chewbacca-like dog-man named—wait for it—Barf.
