This review may contain spoilers.

Whenever it’s directly making fun of Star Wars it feels pretty cheap but I love all the signature Mel Brooks humor like combing the desert, May The Schwartz Be With You and all the meta stuff with the production crew and whatnot. Also, that John Hurt cameo with the dancing chestburster was hilarious. Bill Pullman and John Candy are also great.
