1976 | Winner: Top Ten Films
1977 | Nominee: Best Comedy Written Directly for the Screen (Screen)
1977 | 4 nominations including: Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical
Too many dialogue jokes that fall flat without comedic timing. Many of the physical jokes don't fly either. Few and far between, hilarious physical comedy. Overall a disappointment.
Everyone is working SO HARD it's too bad there aren't more laughs
"Let us drink the toast to the end of The Silent Movie"
Possibly Mel Brooks' most underrated.
Actually quite funny. The scene with Liza Minnelli and the knights is hilarious and classic.
The gimmick is that's a gimmick. But it's fun.
........ "NON!!" ....... Brilliant movie!
