A finely tuned parody of the old Frankenstein movies, in which the young Frankenstein (played by Gene Wilder) returns to the old country to clear his family name.

Oh boy ! What kind of humour is this ? The assistant was there to do a stereotypical accent, be sexy and take some sexual jokes ? What’s up with the yelling half of the time ?! Is this considered slapstick humour and I am taking it too serious? I have no idea , but they sure annoyed the heck out of me .

One of the greatest comedies of all time. Second only to Blazing Saddles in the Mel Brooks filmography.

An incredible cast, the genius of Mel Brooks, and "Putting on the Ritz"- what a combination!

A comedy classic!

I liked this comedy spoof on this DVD. It was funny how they presented Frankenstein's story. It is a typical Mel Brooks movie.

Gene Wilder really made this movie comedic gold.

“It’s pronounced ‘Fronkensteen.’ ” It's hard to go wrong with Gene Wilder.

One of the truly great sublime comedies of all time. I watched it in conjunction with the 1931 original featuring Boris Karloff as the monster. Cool Fact: The lab equipment in Young Frankenstein is the same equipment used in the original feature!

As fresh as it was the day it was released.

So much to love about what I consider to be Gene Wilder's best movie ever. I still laugh in all the same places. Many of these actors are gone now, making it even more of a treasure.

Fron-kon-steen (referring to Eye-gor's hump): "Didn't that used to be on the other side?"

Fron-kon-steen: "No matter what you hear in there...no matter how cruelly I beg you...no matter how terribly I may scream...do NOT open this door or you'll undo everything I've worked for, do you understand? DO NOT OPEN THIS DOOR!!"

Fron-kon-steen: "Now that brain that you gave me. Was it Hans Delbruk's?" Eyegor: "No." Fron-kon-steen: "Ahh. Would you mind telling me whose brain I did put in?" Eye-gor: "And you won't be angry?" Fron-kon-steen: "I will not be angry." Eye-gor: "Abby...someone." Fron-kon-steen: "Abby someone. Abby who??" Eye-gor: "Abby...normal." Fron-kon-steen: "Abby normal." Eye-gor: "I'm almost sure that was the name." Fron-kon-steen: (chuckles) "Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a 7-&-a-half-foot long, 54-inch wide...(begins strangling Eye-gor) GORILLA?????? Is that what you're telling me?????"
