...cuz it's silent, y'see. Sorry. ;)
To be honest, I got this because I thought it was neat. I'm not much of a Mel Brooks fan. His humor just doesn't "hit" me. As a huge Star Wars fan, I thought Spaceballs was a massive waste of time. (I literally laughed once during the whole thing; when Moranis turns to teh camera and says something like 'are you getting all this?') Blazing Saddles was largely fogettable. (on account-a I can't remember much of it!) Young Frankenstein was the only one I actually really enjoyed and have watched more than once.
Good cast in this too. But I think part of the problem for me is that I don't find Mel himself funny, which kinda drags the experience down for me. But I'll check it out someday, I'm sure...
Genius? Well, such a label is in the eye of the beholder, I guess. Heh.
