I had the strangest dream last night that involved Young Frankenstein. I was sitting in a classroom and nothing out the ordinary was happening. I was chatting with my fellow students and we didn't know one student's name that was in the class. All of a sudden he shouts, "I am Frederick Fronk-en-STEEN!" I don't know why I was dreaming about it, but it was hilarious the way he said it, just like Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein. Sadly, no one claimed to be 'EYE gor.'
Young Frankenstein should be watched by everyone who has watched Frankenstein (1931). Frankenstein is a fantastic horror film. The problem is, it has been spoofed a lot over the years, so the joke is pretty old nowadays, which lessens its scare factor quality within the majority of today's society.
Young Frankenstein, however, is not just another overdone spoof on the classic monster movie. It is a parody that is so well done that it should be watched simply because the comedic genius of it is sublime, as are the performances by the actors. I truly do not know how someone could watch this film and not laugh throughout the majority of it. It's so witty and ridiculous, that's it's practically impossible not to enjoy it. Unless, of course, you do not have a sense of humor. In that case, you will never understand this film. If you like to laugh, then please watch this film! You will love it!
