Watched Dracula: Dead and Loving It


Despite being one of Mel Brook's later works, it's fairly decent. 


Even though I like him in Naked Gun, I don't think Leslie Nielsen was the best choice for Dracula. 


I did enjoy Mel Brook's performance as Van Helsing. A lot of the jokes fall a bit flat, and the pace of the movie is a bit slow.

  1. Too bad the Hollywood lawyers have wiped these excellent videos from the internet. Oh well, I guess I will have to start paying for them.

    PS - I hope all the money goes to Mel Brooks, Leslie Neilson, Teri Garr, Peter MacNicol, Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Madeline Kahn, Cloris Leachman (in no particular order :-) and not to their lawyers :-)

    PS - Because I love all of them. (but not the lawyers :-)

  2. PPPPS.. Of course, I forgot Rick Moranis. Possibly, one of the funniest people alive.

    Anyway, I will just have to shush my mouth and quit being so emotional.

    Sincerely,

  3. PPPPPPPPPPPPPS.. Well, for the record, possibly some of the funniest videos are:

    "Young Frankentien" (Sorry, I mean, Frankenstein).

    "Spaceballs" (With apologies to "Dark Helmet, John Candy, ").

    "Dead and Loving It" (With apologies to Leslie Neilson, His cute cast of vampires, except that I would never eat bugs, other than the fact that Peter MacNicol did it so well. Well.. where are the bugs in my computer.. Nowhere.. I don't think there are any bugs in my computer.. Except for maybe this one little bug.

    Sincerely,
    Rob.

    Good night.

  4. Well, I forgot Bill Pullman and Daphne Zuniga. I mean, look. If there ever could be a better couple of, swash buckling, planet saving people in this who organization, then I would ask Mel Brooks to help us look for them.

    Sincerely,
    and with much love,
    Robin.
