James Mack : Harvey Korman should have been nominated for his performance as Hedley Lamarr....it was fantastic

Charles Peter Watson : It's sad when you grew up with this film and know how many of the actors and actresses in the movie are gone.

shabaaz79 : Im a black man..and this is fukn funny!!!

Rossm3838 : you cant ridicule racism without showing the racism. But the snowflakes of today do not grasp that and instead prefer to be upset and outraged. political correctness is killing comedy as well as culture.

Onnie Duvall : I really hate that edited for TV version. If anything deserves to be banned from the face of the earth it is that horrendous edit. Ugh!

Kevin Pogue : "We've got to protect our phony baloney jobs gentlemen." That is at the heart of what government is and how it works.

Robert McConnell : Excuse me while I whip this out. Damn that shit is funny.

Terry : Funniest film ever made!

Janis Cortese : As good as Richard Pryor would have been, I'm glad they hired Cleavon Little. He was much more the squeaky-clean all-American type, and it made for a better contrast with the crummy townsfolk. That campfire scene, as far as my father was concerned, was the apex of American cinema. Move over Citizen Kane! :-)

timeb4ndit : I will never understand how Harvey Korman didn't get even an Academy award nomination for this movie. Probably one of the best comedic performances I've ever seen.

vubhuhjkbhubohjb : If I could only see one film in my lifetime it would be this one, Mel Brooks at his absolute best!

Dean Christensen : You couldn't make Blazing Saddles nowadays without numerous protest groups screaming against it.

Gary Tarr : Blazing Saddles ranks alongside Life Of Brian as the 2 funniest films ever made.

brilliantatbreakfast : A movie that could never be made today, but is one of the funniest films every made.

808avgjoe53 : Blazing Saddles will live forever...

Enevan1968 : Do I miss Harvey Korman, Cleavon Little, Madeline Kahn and Slim Pickens...

PanosP.94 : I wonder why they never considered Foster Brooks for the Waco kid! No better drunk in Hollywood .....he had the looks and ragged face, PLUS drunk play like no equal! Having said that, Gene wilder was Phenomenal! As usual...

Ed Petrovski : I met Burton Gilliam on a plane--I forget where from and to--and had the chance to ask him some questions about the making of the movie. He was a fireman in Dallas, I think, two weeks before he was Lyle. He said Slim Pickens was the salt of the earth--a really great guy. Many times they had to do a retake because the cast was laughing. Gilliam was a straight shooter--no pretense--just a good guy to have a beer with. Thanks to all of you who made this incredible movie. It will last forever.

Jack Fairweather : Equal opportunity offensiveness. Funniest movie I've ever seen!

wurly164 : The sheriff is near

Michael Muldowney : First saw this as a double feature with Monty Python And The Holy Grail... in the late 70's.

Serg Ortiz : What i would give to have been in the room while they wrote this.

Robert bishop : I belly laughed throughout this entire movie. This was a great ensemble cast. They all worked so well together. No comedy that has been made since is anywhere near as funny as Blazzing Saddles and Young Frankenstein.

Kevin McGuire : No a movie to be watched on broadcast tv. too much of the humor taken out.

debunker300 : Another reason to despise our current hyper-sensitive generation of wussified social justice warriors....can anyone imagine a politically-incorrect movie like this being made today? gawd, the snowflakes would lose their minds, accuse everyone involved with it or seeing it as racist, sexist, yadda yadda...I really miss the good ol' days when people were free to laugh....

Martin Zitter : It's right up there with The Big Lebowski.

Roadrunner : what in the wild wild world of sports

George Semel : Well, Mel Brooks " we broke ground and broke wind" and I busted a gut already. I never could look at him without laughing. He is a comic genius! I was 19 in 1974, I got to see it on the big screen, and many, many times since!

Bryon Lape : Imagine how this movie would trigger SJWs today.

Laurie Bolles : The scene that brings me to tears every time because I'm laughing so hard is the eating beans around the camp fire. Especially when you hear the horses whinnying, you know it's really bad if the horses can't take it.

J&D Group, LLC : I take exception with Mel's comment that its a "really dumb movie" Its a comedic classic, and its a CLASSIC movie. PERIOD. There's just no other way to characterize it.

scarletfluerr : Blazing Saddles is one of the funniest movies in history and Mel Brooks is the comedic mind of the century. I always thought the hypocrisy of removing the sound of the farts but then in other movies you can show a woman being beaten was ridiculous.

James Thorson : But we don't want the Irish!

Rick Cruz : I was born in 1971 being a kid the campfire fart scene was my favorite 20 or so yrs later the scene that still gets me cracking up even today is sheriff Bart saying where the white women at to the kkk characters if it were real life the shit would have hit the fan I just imagine how furious there faces would have looked and laugh M.A.O. HAHAHA HAHAHA HAHAHA!!!

Leen Hintjens : It is the finest comedy ever ever done I agree

Morteus : Possibly one of the best narratives on racism ever!

Stephen Mack : I was in the Army at Ft. Lewis, WA. when this came to our PX theater. I can honestly say my friend and I Never laughed so freakin hard in my life for the entire film ! And when the campfire scene started, I truly wished I hadn't had that soda, because I LOST IT, the soda that is, Right down the leg, funny does not even start. Now, I know it's sophomoric humor, but IT WAS FREAKIN AWESOME ! Thank you Mr. Brooks and the entire AMAZING cast and crew for a truly memorable comedic cinematic masterpiece! I had to keep going back to see it cause I missed half the jokes and sight gags from the laughing and tears in the eyes! I had it on VHS and now in Blu-ray in Mel's Full Collection of films. A true joy, even my prudish ex Loved it !

randall starling : Damn Bart, they said you was hung! And they was right! BEST LINE!!!

Michael R : Man, I miss the days when this country was integrated...

Munin Raven : "Lilly VonSchtupp" rolls off the tongue in such a glorious way. It's like "bumblebee", only the way I smile after is so very slightly different. Just wonderful. :)

Aylbdr Madison : _"I hate to disappoint you ma'am, but you're sucking on my arm"_ I died, lols. Such a shame they had censorship back then too. Nothing has changed really, we still have *both* racism and censorship today. It's plain as day in the comment section here. Sadly, many people still don't really know what racism and censorship even are.

Xardox17 : The right movie at the right time. We were as open to discourse between the races as ever in our history. We were almost completely over the hatred (except for the pockets of shitheads). Everyone talked about the movie and worked through the scandal. Bigotry was tackled by parody and shown to be as silly as the movie.

JStarStar00 : What in the wide wide world of sports is goin' on here?!?

Grunthos The Flatulent : It's a perfect movie. And it never gets old.

Richard Miller : A+ great funny comedy

alsuncat : I mentioned to an coworker that Blazing Saddles was on netflix a few months ago. A younger guy over heard me. He was in his early 20s and decided to watch it. Next day he told me it was the funniest f#$kin move he had ever seen. Timeless.

Robert Thomas : The cows in the theater lobby.

animist channel : Blazing Saddles put a big nail in the coffin of racism in America (and hopefully we shall see it buried for good in our lifetime) not by making racism just vile, but by making it ridiculous. No prejudice can survive being laughed at. It isn't mentioned as much, but Blazing Saddles also took shots at homophobia stereotypes. This movie was good therapy for a fractured society.

Craig Morgan : Ow my face! Got to the end of this documentary and realised that i'd had a stoopid grin on my mush all the way through it.... brilliant!

Geoff Peterson : "Candygram for Mongo"
