Young Frankenstein

Young Frankenstein ★★★★

This was my first Mel Brooks film and I have to admit that although I might have turned my nose at some films similar to this in the past the more I think about Young Frankenstein the funnier I think it is and the more I want to watch it again.

Comparing this to modern parody it becomes clear that whereas a Scary Movie film is merely poking fun at the genre it's portraying this is showing a really deep understanding and appreciation for its source material.
