I remember seeing Spaceballs with a group of like minded friends in the summer of 1987 and the audience was laughing so hard and making funny comments that entire scenes went by at what seemed like Warp Speed. Thank goodness for this Blu-ray/DVD combo because it brought back scenes like the humongous starship taking more than 90 seconds to pass majestically before the fixed camera. Other scenes that made me laugh so hard that my ribs hurt when Mel Brooks spoofed the original Planet of the Apes, Alien, and Michigan J. Frog from the Looney Tunes.

From official release/information:

When the Dark Helmet (Moranis) attempts to steal all the air from Planet Druidia, a determined Druish Princess (Zuniga), a clueless rogue (Pullman) and a half-man/half-dog creature who is his own best friend (Candy) set out to stop him. But with the forces of darkness closing in, they'll need the help of a wise imp named Yogurt (Brooks) and the mystical power of the "Schwartz" to bring peace and merchandising rights to the entire galaxy.
