Sid's not going to like this - but I suspect he may be my pishley doppleganger- though obviously not as witty or well endowed. Three films in agreement

1. Blazing saddles ( mel is indeed the master)

2. Love and Death ( but why did he stop shaggin' Diane to go to Mia?)

3. A night at the opera.

4. The life of Brian

5. Young Frankenstein( mel again- and the wonderful marty)

1. This Is Spinal Tap (can't believe there's only ONE person mentioned that!)

2. Blazing Saddles

3. Gregory's Girl

4. Catch 22

5. Life of Brian

Despite it not being in the top five one of the most genius pieces of comedy I know of is from the Mel Brooks film Silent Movie. Only one person has a speaking part. And that's Marcel Marceau. Now THAT'S funny!

And he could paint! Aaaah, what a painter. A whole house in one day. Two coats!

But the song and dance number is the best

"Springtime for Hitler and Germany,

Deutschland is happy and gay.

We're marching to a faster pace,

Look out, here comes the master race.

Springtime for Hitler and Germany

Goose-step's the new step today

Bombs falling from the skies again,

Deutschland is on the rise again"
