SPACEBALLS!

Written by Mel Brooks & Ronny Graham

Directed & Produced by Mel Brooks

Starring:  Mel Brooks, John Candy, Rick Moranis, Daphne Zuniga, and of course...

Available on VHS & DVD

And usually at Wal-Mart & K-Mart for a good price!

Those dastardly thieves from the planet Spaceball are out to steal the clean, clear atmosphere from peaceful Druidia. But how do they get the code that opens the shield surrounding the planet? Kidnap the daughter of Roland, the befuddled king! And who will Roland turn to in his hour of need to get his precious baby girl back (never mind that she's of marriagable age)? Why, the swashbuckling Lone Starr: smuggler, hired gun and all-around great guy, assisted by his faithful sidekick, Barf the mog. And why does Lone Starr undertake this seemingly impossible task? Because he owes Pizza the Hutt a million spacebucks!

Director, writer & madman Mel Brooks cashed in on the phenomenal success of sci-fi adventure films of the 1970s & 80s with this irreverent and humorous spoof. Our man Bill is cast as a send up of Luke Skywalker/Captain Kirk/Han Solo, the handsome, romantic, good-guy-with-attitude, and a really boss Winnebago spaceship. Bill attacks the dashing Lone Starr with a much winking & nodding and a great deal of earnestness.

Rated PG-13 for some naughty language, the one-finger salute and bathroom humor.

[Kids love "Spaceballs" but parents may want to wait for the TBS edited version instead of the DVD.]
