Video Revue: Director's Chair--Mel Brooks

Yes, that's right! As LOL-vember continues, Johnny and I take a look at one of comedy's greatest directors. From 1968's "The Producers" to 1995's "Dracula: Dead and Loving It," we discuss them all. Special guest: our dad joins us for an in-depth analysis of "Blazing Saddles" and "Silent Movie."

As always, you can find us on iTunes or Podshow.

One note I wanted to bring up on the podcast: "Silent Movie" should not be confused with the "Scary Movie" franchise or those other gawd-awful "Fill-in-the-blank Movie" films like "Date Movie," "Epic Movie," or "Superhero Movie." Seriously, it seems like there's a new one of those every year, each more half-assed than the last.

Question for the week: What's your favorite Mel Brooks movie?
