The film itself is another clever parody film by Mel Brooks. While he parodies Hitchcock films, he still puts respect into it to show how great his films are and gives you the feel of watching a Hitchcock film. The things that Mel Brooks makes fun of regarding Hitchcock films are endless! He satirizes the dramatic music, the shots, the characters, the plots, and the murders. Mel Brooks also throws in a character and parody that’s not at all related to Hitchcock, which is a Bond villain based off of “JAWS” and as out of place as it sounds; the parody of this famous Bond villain still manages to fit within the film’s world. Outside of the parodies, Mel Brooks does puts in his traditional humor such as the fourth wall jokes, suggestive humor, characters with odd names, slapstick and of course throws in a great musical number.
The film is one of Mel Brooks best, funniest and clever parody flick that should not be missed!
