Let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of Spaceballs: The Movie. This novelization however isn't worth the cheap paper it's printed on. Every joke/scene that is even slightly risque (and remember, this is a Mel Brooks film!) has been either removed or sanitized to a "suitable to 10 year old nuns" level. Detail has been added where it's pointless and removed where it was needed, events happened to the wrong character, lines spoken by the wrong person, pretty much every error that could be made was made. I expected much better from Bob Stine, but even at the $4.00 (including $3.99 S&H) that I paid, I feel like I've been ripped off. In short, if you're a fan of the movie, stay far, far, far away from the novelization.

As you should've guessed, the book is based on the great movie. The book started off funny as hell, kind of giving you an idea of what was happening that you didn't see in the movie, and is almost something you would have liked to have seen in the movie... but then there's other things that where funny in the movie... but seem very weird to read something different in the book... or when your memory serves well and you remember a scene in the movie.... and instead of reading that, you read how a 5 minute scene has been worded down to "they had a fight, then he won, he hit the self-destruct button, and got out of there" ...those aren't the exact words, but you get the point. Not to mention that some things in the movie are not in the book, which just left me wondering how one of the funniest things about the movie, was left out? Why?

It's not a very big book, it will only take you a short period of the day to read it! It's about 120 pages long, but its not even the size of a DVD case. It's ok reading for a fan of Spaceballs like myself to read something based on a favorite movie. But don't pay alot for it.

May da shwartz be with ya ;)

I absolutely LOVED the movie and the book was really good too! Good effort by R.L. Stine (who was quite a new author at the time).

I actually found this book just as good the movie, very humorous. Sure, it's not as profanity-laced as the movie because of the ages of people reading the book, but it still comes across as really good. Yogurt rules!
