Yawn. If you think this couldn’t be made today (which it has been, ever heard of Django Unchained?) then you’re not paying close attention to the movie.

Love blazing saddles I was brought up on this film. Well that and life of Brian.

Let's be honest, this movie couldn't be made 20 years ago.
Benjamin Lucas (16 days ago)
I dont know why. Ive seen plenty of Hollywood movies that were made after Blazing Saddles that were less than politically correct and were full of racial slurs and ethnical stereotypes .

The Founding Fathers and other Enlightenment thinkers would have loved this piece of art. Free speech is used to its limits and the only people getting hurt are the ones looking for censorship.

I prefer classic comedies over most newer comedies!

It really is sad that it probably wouldn't be made today, except maybe as an indie project. That some people would actually think that it plays its racist elements seriously just means that they're incapable of grasping the concept of 'satire' and are perhaps utterly humorless. Those same people think that The Onion articles are to be taken as real (and lambast them for it, or alternatively, use them as evidence to prop up their own idiotic points of view). Most people would get the film. It's just that minority that would scream "THAT'S OFFENSIVE, YOU MONSTERS!" are so loud that studios and publishers feel they can't take risks.

I agree with you about how this movie couldn't possibly be made to today as good as the original. I actually love this movie and this would trigger Liberals ALMOST as hard as Black Panther triggered the regressive Right.

A classic that will always be near and dear to my heart. Shame my generation would never get this.

Based on similar sentiments expressed to me, I watched this film. I found the jokes fairly low-brow, unimaginative, and too dependent on class and race distinctions. I understand what they were trying to do thematically, but I feel like the film fails on a comedic level. Overall, it wasn't offensive, it was just boring.

The un-cut version of “Airplane” is never shown on tv and was edited by Blockbuster. If you can find it, it is very funny and better than the incomplete travesty most are familiar with today.

The Governor is William J. Le Petomane, played by Mel Brooks and named after a 19th century French artist who was famous for his ability to fart on command. The name attacks all politicians without actually offending anyone specific... And Hedy (I mean Hedley) LaMarr was Le Petomane's crooked attorney general, not the actual governor. Good piece, though. And a really good film that could never be made today. At least they do play a heavily censored version on TV now and then.

happygoluckyscamp (2 months ago)
Are you a fucking idiot or something? The reason why Blazing Saddles couldn't be made today is because the social and cultural climate that made it work doesn't existed today. It couldn't be made today because it isn't fucking relative today, you jumped up pseudo intellectual ball bag.

Those who are so easily offended don't have to watch this or anything else that bothers them. But they have no right to dictate what can/cannot be made or viewed; censorship has no place in our society.

a group of us watched this on TV recently and the campfire fart scene was kept in but the audio was blanked out. watching the cowboys lean up on one cheek without any noise was even funnier that the original. we all rolled on the floor laughing

The problem isn't just our PC culture. On a deeper level, we live in a society where we need our comedy spoon fed to us. We take things way too literally. Quality satire like that from Mel Brooks isn't commonplace anymore.

#2nd best comedy of all time. I fucking love it
ChuckE (2 months ago)
LMFAO, I'm one of those snowflakes you talk about, and I LOVE that film! It's not racist, it's having a go at racism, just as you say. That's what people seem to miss in films, shows, books, etc. like Blazing Saddles. Of course, it was of its time, when films/shows like that were needed, when racism was rife, and comedy was, and still is, one of the best ways of getting the anti racism message across.
madscientistshusta (2 months ago)
You know they wanted Richard Pryor to play the sheriff but he was literally to cracked out to even show up haha which sucks because having him would have really made it better
sciguyjeff (2 months ago)
I can 90% agree that this would not be made today, at least not in its format. The only reason I do not go 100% is due to Spike Lee's Confederate States of America. I think if someone tried a remake it would either so slap stick, low quality humor or do the reverse and be dark (no pun intended) and gritty.

People are afraid to laugh due to hurt feelings. Watch any sitcom today on a major network. I promise you will simply sit there and not laugh. The jokes are sanitized. Progress should be the ability to laugh at each other as equally as ourselves. The more you do that the more the comfort level will go up. The more the comfort level goes up, the more the barriers come down leading to more understanding of each other.

Well loads of us mennials love this movie the majority of us are not libtards!! I have noticed that (mennial) and or (mennials) have become a catch phrase that is just as thrown around as much as the left throws around (racist) or (sexiest)!!
bigwilly43729 (2 months ago)
We literally had this already, not too long ago. It was called Chappelles Show. Do we need this movie today? Who is asking for it? The same people that get mad at SJW’s about being mad about racism/racist tropes are the same ones that would say something along the lines of, “if we just wouldn’t talk about racism, it would go away”, which is a stupid statement in its own right, but here we are.

I am a critical thinker, i don't think this movie is racist, i don't think it's wrong to say the real word in this context, nigger ...... but I think calling people that try to change mentalities snowflake, i don't agree, you don't see the big picture in my opinion
airingcupboard (2 months ago)
Unfortunately a film wont be made today because people use pejoratives like 'SJW' and 'Snowflake' and the entire movie would be made to fit an anti-'PC' frame. What's joyous is it transcends all of that. Better to make a funny video about a funny film without the ponderous political message then?
Hamish Woodland (2 months ago)

Its exactly like the British sitcom "Till Death Us Do Part" would never be made today. Another show that takes the mick out of racism etc. The show actually makes the character Alf Garnett look stupid and laughs at him. Something the actor who played him, Warren Michell pointed out. But dumb as f**k extreme SJWs would either not get this irony or still find something to moan about.
WIFIGHOST CRUISER (2 months ago)
You're right about that. The Saul Alinsky, politically correct SJW Nazis have killed America! They've destroyed the capability for creativity, humor and anything else of redeeming social value. A bunch of mindless, uneducated, ignorant drones that don't know how to do anything including speak English correctly. The result is the mindless 💩 they call music, which is really rap. A genre of 💩 they called music which proves their ignorance of the English language, since nobody who turns this crap out can play an instrument or sing. They take human bile like Andrew Dice Clay and call it comedy because they have turned the nation so simple-minded that sickness and perversion has replaced intelligent humor. Doctors, pharmacists, scientists and professionals are imported from the rest of the world because our schools can't teach anybody anything except the BS of social justice and liberal arts. I grew up in America and it is now dead. It is a graveyard of music, intelligence, comedy, creativity originality and everything else of goodness, down to its national language. The idiots wandering this country today use adult as a verb and the word adulting. It's enough to make you instantly retch when you look into these people's eyes and listen to them talk, if that's what you want to call it. The American public school system has been 100% Saul Alinskyized, it's the biggest abuser of children in the Free World! I'm 60 years old and I was lucky enough to be born and raised in America when it was in its last days. Those of us who are old enough walk around with our memories of America, the rest walk around with their illusions of it.

I tried this movie a few times, and I can't get why it's so popular: 1:38, for example, or 4:13. And the rest of the time, the jokes are rather infantile: the beans and farting posse scene, or why a horse would be hanged along with its rider. The humour in this is very strange, as is the invasion of the movie into adjacent Hollywood backlots at the end. WTF???

Blazing Saddles gets a 7.8 on IMDB. That's pretty close to universal acclaim. So I guess that blows your claims out of the water.
Hill Country (2 months ago)
His claim is that Mel Brookes is correct when he stated that this movie could never be made today. And he's correct. It's the same as Married With...Children and the fact that series couldn't be made today.

Also, a flatulence joke was new and creative in 1974, but they've overdone the humor of a fart to the point where only 5 year olds find if funny.
Joe Buss (2 months ago)
Okay, except that the Wayan brothers make movies that are just as offensive and not half as funny. The real reason why this movie couldn't be made today is because Westerns have become passe as a genre, to where you wouldn't get half the jokes.
Hill Country (2 months ago)
Joe Buss It wasn't one or two. I believe it was the third one. Every Scary Movie after the second one was lame. And it wasn't racist, it was just a joke. It's called humor. Something a lot of people don't have these days when it comes to race and sexuality.
Joe Buss (2 months ago)
I remember when one of Scary Movies (forget which one) that sent up Signs had a scene where some black people got killed and Leslie Neilson said, "Send my condolences to their b**ches and hoes" Not sure how that wasn't racist.
Hill Country (2 months ago)
Yeah, they make movies where the black guy is being racist toward the white guy and the word "nigger" is being used by black people instead of white people. It isn't even close to being the same.

War Hawk (2 months ago)
I completely agree with this assessment. I remember watching this as a senior in high school and being mortified by it. Then, fifteen years removed from such an extreme PC culture (which is forced on the student body by public schools) I was able to watch it again, understand it, and laugh at the humor in it. The film brilliantly makes fun of prejudice of any kind all while showing the most effect means to eliminate it as demonstrated by our hero sheriff.

Blazing Saddles has always been my favorite movie since I was a kid, though I didn't fully understand context of this film. Years later, this has not it's place. If a bunch of overly-sensitive dick heads can't understand it... compared to an 8 year old me, we're pretty much fucked.

Not only could Blazing Saddles not be made today...but I predict within the next 10 years it will be banished. You won't be able to see it online or buy the DVD or Bluray. Just watch. The left-wing book burners will come for it.

I own many Mel Brooks films. My husband and I tried showing it to my 18 year old daughter's friends. It was a disaster! They understood none of the cultural references and the lost their minds every time the N bomb got dropped. A that's when I learned faggot was the new f bomb! I love every Mel Brooks film I've ever seen! The man is a comedic genius. Of course I think one of the best numbers in any of his movies was the Inquisition big musical number. But it's really hard to pick just one favorite. It's too bad people have gotten so humorless. I'm still waiting for "Jews in Space". lol
asaka616 (2 months ago)
It is a sad state of affairs when a masterpiece like this, despite making fun of racism would be demonised by regressive SJW culture.
