  1. James Mackin's rating of the film The Twelve Chairs

    Mel Brooks hadn't quite honed his style, but Dom DeLuise made this film. "Oh Thou who knowest all, you know."

  2. Dalibor's rating of the film The Twelve Chairs

    Enjoyable comedy set in a post-revolutionary Soviet Union, an even semi-parody of class differences and generational changes in the country during the time. Sandwiched between directors more audacious films like "The Producers" or "Young Frankenstein", it really doesn't hold much court, especially with a story revolving in and around eastern European history.

  3. AKFilmFan's rating of the film The Twelve Chairs

    Not as madcap and funny as his later films, this is a solid and simply entertaining film with solid performances and a balanced mixture of laughs and character growth.

  4. mjgildea's rating of the film The Twelve Chairs

    3 1/2 out of 5 stars. Not Mel Brooks' best movie, but possibly his most underappreciated one. The laughs aren't as overt or obvious as with his most well-known work, but it feels like the more subtle and visual humor was more effective. Dom DeLuise stole the goddamn show and I'd highly recommend watching this for him alone.

  5. Anastasia's rating of the film The Twelve Chairs

    Really under appreciated effort from Mr. Brooks.
