Ahoy, squirts! Quint here... YES, YES, YES, PLEASE YES. I can't tell you how much I love SPACEBALLS... I remember seeing it in the theaters when it came out... I was very young and had no idea what the hell it was. There was something else I wanted to see more at the theater and I remember whining to my mom that I didn't want to see this stupid-sounding movie. She said, "Relax. It's like STAR WARS, you'll love it." And that began my long love affair with Dark Helmet, Lone Star, Princess Vespa, Barf ("Not in here, mister! This is a Mercedes!") and the rest of those looney characters. I hope this happens. Mel Brooks isn't getting any younger and I'd be very sad if his last film is DRACULA: DEAD AND LOVING IT... Here's a bit of the interview with Playbill Magazine with Mel Brooks! Mori,
here's something filmish you might also be interested in.
There's a small Q and A with Mel Brooks in Playbill magazine, which is all about theatre shows, in which he says there are more movies on the way that he's doing..have a great day.
Playbill : What's the secret to The Producers longevity?
MB: I think it's just a matter of right time, right place. There was a thing called video and then there was a thing called DVDs, then it became more successful, and so the time was right for it, ripe for it actually, to go to Broadway. Now, it's the right time for it to be made back into a movie.
Playbill : With Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane?
MB: Most definitely. There might be a few changes, for instance an Australian chap named Bert Newton plays Franz Leibkind in the show down under and he gives the performance of that role I've ever seen frankly. I'd love Newton to be involved. I'd also like Nicole Kidman to be involved, and apparently she's keen.
Playbill : Will you have a role in it?
MB : It's doubtful, but I'm writing myself back into the Spaceballs sequel that I'm now writing, so you haven't seen the last of my face. Why another Spaceballs? It wouldn't feel right have anyone else play Yoghurt and the first one was the best experience I've had making a movie since Blazing Saddles.
Playbill : When can we expect that?
MB : Best case scenario : a week before the new Star Wars opens. Worst Case Scenario : a year after the new star wars opens.
Yes! I bet Brooks could really take some of the piss out of the prequels pretty badly if he wanted to... I just hope the film is subtitled THE SEARCH FOR MORE MONEY! I can't wait!!!
My kids know me well, and they bought me three DVDs for Christmas: "Animal House," "PCU," and "Spaceballs."
Ok... now you guys force me to get out my Spaceballs DVD and do some screen grabs...
1st up... Yogert.
(Taking scene requests)
Now that I've got my coffee, I'm ready to watch radar!
You have to take a shot of the scene where all the guys on the bridge are protecting themselves from the threat of Dark Helmet... "Of course we do, sir!"
And now, the short, short version!!
Do you? YES!
Do you? YES!
Good! You're married! KISS HER!
Cheesy lines, not stupid lines. There is a difference between the two. Cheesy lines are funny. Verbal stupid lines are not funny.
Mel Brooks is a comic genius, he is the only one of two people I know of who did a Unicron Transformers parody. The others were the creators of the Megas XLR series (Skalgar being my personal favorite of those Unicron parodies), which was done almost 20 years after Spaceballs was made.
"I am your Fathers, Brothers, Cousins, Uncles former Roommate!"
"What does that make us?"
"ABSOLUTLY NOTHING! Which is what you're about to become."
I stand corrected.
The Producers will always be my favorite Mel Brooks movie.
The combination is 1 - 2 - 3? That is what an idiot would put on their luggage!
I'm a mog, half man, half dog. I'm my own best friend.
Sir! Are you all right?
Good. How have you been?
Just fine, sir!
Are we stopped?
Well... why don't we all take a five minute break?
Of course, sir!
Smoke 'em if you got 'em.....(crash)
Change the combination on my luggage!
That bit always reminds me of the character he played in Ghostbusters.
I thought about Spaceballs during the Cessna event in DC. The news stated they shot warning flares across the nose of the Cessna. I turned to my husband and said "I said across her nose not up it!".
"Sorry, Sir, I'm doing my best."
"Who made that man a gunner?"
"I did, Sir,he's my cousin."
"He's an @sshole sir"
"I know that. What's his name?"
"That is his name sir, @sshole, Major @sshole"
"And his cousin?"
"He's an asshole too, Sir, Gunner's Mate, First Class, Phillip @sshole."
"How many @ssholes we got on this anyhow?"
"I knew it, i'm surrounded by @ssholes!"
*Pulls down mask*
"Keep firing @ssholes!"
