A review by Mike Shea Movie Rating: ( * * * · · ) DVD Rating: ( * * · · · )
One of Mel Brooks comedy classics, Young Frankenstein is the tale of a man who cannot escape his destiny and of a monster who learns how to tap dance. I have seen this flick a whole lot in my day, and it still doesnt cease to make me laugh. Some of the slapstick comedy will have you in tears, and the story is actually pretty good. For some reason, it didnt hold as many non-stop gags as I could have expected, but the cult aura of this movie more than holds it together. The DVD is not 16x9 enhanced and has only a mono soundtrack, but it does have a directors commentary and a making of feature. If you are a fan, this is the collectors edition to own.
