Sorry to shoot down your childhood memories, but Mel Brooks' johnny-come-lately Star Wars spoof really isn't as good as you may remember. John Candy in a dog suit and one barf-worthy gag at the expense of Planet Of The Apes aside, it's dumb, dated nonsense that seems more baffled by its subject matter than amused. Sit through it all and you're left with much the same queasy, pitying sensation that watching your granddad cracking jokes about the Spice Girls might inspire. God forbid that Brooks follows through on recent threats and makes a prequel-mocking follow-up.
