In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply, leaving its citizens reliant on a product called "Perri-Air." In desperation, Spaceball's leader President Skroob (Mel Brooks) orders the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) to kidnap Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) of oxygen-rich Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air. But help arrives for the Princess in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man, half-dog partner, Barf (John Candy).

Aside from me, only Bob (as he always does) got it right. This movie is a classic. I just wanna get a pizza, watch it while I eat the whole pie and become pizza the hut!July 26th, 2013 · Details2 Thanks ·
Spaceballs is a spoof on Star Wars. To me it does have some very funny moments, but it just doesnt do it for me. This is the type of movie that I try to avoid because I feel like it is a waste of time. However it is funny and there are many quotable lines, Its just not my personal style. Most people that I know really like this movie. I would say watch it once and make up your own mind. For me its not worth the time.June 19th, 2013 · Details1 Thank ·
Spaceballs is a funny, funny movie that takes me back quite a few years. Written and directed by Mel Brooks, Spaceballs parodies Star Wars, Alien and Planet of the Apes among others. I love Rick Moranis as The Dark Helmet and John Candy as Barffolemew.
Spaceballs is rated PG, but with the level of innuendo and language in the movie, I would say it's probably on the lighter side of PG-13. There's some material that is definitely not for younger kids.
Watching this movie, you won't get much by way of critically acclaimed acting or any of the things critics seem to rave about. What you will get is a very funny, clever, and quotable parody of some well-known sci-fi movies.

This film although funny and satirical is for a very specific audience with a dark sense of humor. There are some sexual jokes and some language based jokes in this film and might not be suitable for all mom's. And while made by a comedic genuis it is a little on the more moronic side. Approach with caution
Hilarious and a classic! The actors did well with this one. It has some big names of the 80s and has many quotable lines.
Parents should know that this movie probably shouldn't be PG. It's got some innuendos and jokes that aren't kid appropriate.
