Mel Brook’s Blazing Saddles is a legendary entry in the parody film genre, the only problem is, it’s not terribly funny. There are some great scenes in this movie. Some really funny lines, and the musical cabaret number in the middle is top-notch. The other stuff is, well, not that funny. Case and point: the movie ends with the two heroes riding off into the sunset on horseback, only to get off their horses and finish the ride in a car. This stuff was probably hilarious 40 years ago, but most viewers today will probably take this kind of anachronistic humor for granted. Watchable.
