Blazing Saddles: 30th Anniversary Special Edition (DVD)
The railroad's got to run through the town of Rock Ridge. How do you drive out the townfolk in order to steal their land? Send in the toughest gang you've got...and name a new sheriff who'll last about 24 hours. But that's not really the plot of Blazing Saddles, just the pretext. Once Mel Brooks' lunatic film many call his best gets started, logic is lost in a blizzard of gags, jokes, quips, puns, howlers, growlers and outrageous assaults upon good taste or any taste at all. Cleavon Little as the new lawman, Gene Wilder as the wacko Waco Kid, Brooks himself as a dim-witted politico and Madeline Kahn in her Marlene Dietrich send-up that earned an Academy Award nomination all give this sagebrush saga their lunatic best. And when Blazing Saddles can't contain itself at the finale, it just proves the Old West will never be the same!]]>

Sadly, non-sequitur ending sequence gives the feeling that Bergman wrote himself into a corner and then relied on some silly self-satire to fix everything.
Some might complain about all the racism, but that's exactly the point. For a movie that came out in the mid-70s, it offered a good poke in the eye of the absurdist beliefs that racism was ever useful. And you know... that eye needs to be poked some more.
If you're a politically correct person, this film would trigger you. For fun, watch this with a politically correct friend of yours. It makes the movie that much more hilarious.
