    Young Frankenstein, no doubt.

    Also, Brooks is the producer of great movies and not funny at all, like the elephant man, frances or the fly remake.

    The only one out of that list I tried to like but thought eh was "Life Stinks".

    I've not seen "Twelve Chairs" or "Dracula: Dead and Loving It".

    The others I've seen and enjoyed immensly. It's impossible for me to say which is the best.

    Spaceballs
    Young Frankenstein
    Blazing Saddles

    The Producers is his best film (I'm biased since I did it as a play and it was a lot of fun), but Spaceballs is my favorite.

    As a sidenote, my school is doing a production of Young Frankenstein (sadly, I can't participate. Darn finals :( ).

    For me it's pretty close between Young Frankenstein and Spaceballs but I'll give the edge to Spaceballs. Young Frankenstein started strong but then ran out of ideas.

    "Barf................................Barf.................................................Barf!!"

    "I'm a Mawg - half-man, half-dog. I'm my own best friend."

    "Now you see that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb."

    "That is my virgin alarm, it goes off before you do!"

    Nobody else can make these lines as memorable as they did. :D

    I think The Producers was his best. The opening of Springtime for Hitler is one of the funniest moments ever in a movie.

    Young Fronkenshteen = MASTERPIECE

    Spaceballs = fun to watch on a hungover Saturday afternoon, but that's despite the fact that it's crap. "YOGURT" ? "comb the desert" ?.....come on. :rolleyes:

    I've only seen Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Spaceballs, Men in Tights, and History of the World.

    My fav is Spaceballs. Young Frankenstein was good, but I didn't find it to be very funny. Blazing Saddles I didn't like mainly b/c the movie was just 1 black joke after another.
