Young Frankenstein

Title: Young Frankenstein
Year: 1974
Director: Mel Brooks
Writer: Gene Wilder & Mel Brooks, based on (but not really) a novel by Mary Shelley
Starring: Gene Wilder, Peter Boyle, Marty Feldman, Cloris Leachman, Teri Garr
Music: John Morris
Distinctions: Oscar nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Sound; formerly on IMDb’s Top 250
Synopsis: spoof of the classic Frankenstein movie
How I saw it: on video, twice (rented on DVD), most recently April 2008
Subjective Rating: 7/10 (Good).
Objective Rating: 7/10 (points off for story, characters and pacing) c. 2.8/4 (Good).

Funny enough to be worth watching. Everyone in it is very good, and the classic bits are great, but there’s not really enough material for an entire film.
