From the dawn of man to the distant future, mankind's evolution (or lack thereof) is traced. Often ridiculous
but never serious, we learn the truth behind the Roman Emperor, we learn what REALLY happened at the Last
Supper, the circumstances that surrounded the French Revolution, how to test eunuchs, and what kind of shoes
the Spanish Inquisitor wore.
I'm kind of surprised at some of the reviews of this film. Mainly the "very poor" and "putrid" ones. This is
Mel Brooks having the time of his life. The marketplace scene is hilarious. "Plumbing! Pump s**t right out of
your house! Plumbing!
It's a wild romp through early history, with a few side steps into vaudeville and Broadway. I disagree that
this film is not a classic. There are enough funny lines to quote out of this film to keep the average frat
house laughing through three or four kegs of Bud.
"Boy, when you die at the palace, you REALLY die at the palace!"
Madeline (The Queen): "What happens to the slaves?"
Queen's Maid: "If they're captured, they're hung."
Madeline (The Queen): "Not necessarily."
So I suggest that you take off the Jeffrey Lyons face, sit down with some chips and brews, and watch this movie
if you haven't already done so. Slapstick? You bet. Silly? Of course. As I asked before. It's Mel Brooks. What
do you expect????
