In May 25th 2013, fans of STAR WARS celebrate its 26th anniversary and I'm going to travel back in time to review a movie that isn't related to the franchise at all. It makes fun of the original trilogy and also probably the greatest sign-in of science fiction parodies called SPACEBALLS. Spoofing up the saga as well as many other sci-fi classics like STAR TREK and many others excluding a few that were not sci-fi. Mel Brooks' comedic masterpiece has brought us materialistic gags and intergalactic amusement of jokes with decent make-up and old special effects in likely. In the presence of a light-hearted motion picture, every moments and quotes are hilarious and hysterical in every girth as possible. The cast Bill Pullman, John Candy, Rick Moranis and Mel Brooks are really funny in their roles and the cameos of Michael Winslow and John Hurt felt so lucky to be in SPACEBALLS.

SPACEBALLS surrenders itself to the light side for a gratifying lease of laughter and hesitation from Star Wars fans and audience to watch this send-up. Be entertained and yes, even George Lucas is aware that Brooks has given us a legendary comic-buster in the century and he'll be laughing at his bottom. I love it and it was the best parody movie I had seen and there wasn't any offence to all of us.

Star rating: (5/5) Best Movie Ever
