A little something to offend everyone...
Certificate: R
Running Time: 92 mins
Retail Price: $29.98
Release Date:

Mel Brooks` uproarious version of history proves nothing is sacred as he takes us on a laugh-filled look at what really happened throughout time. His delirious romp features everything from a wild send-up of "2001" to the real stories behind the Roman Empire (Brooks plays a stand-up philosopher at Caesar`s Palace), the French Revolution (Brooks as King Louis XVI) and the Spanish Inquisition (a splashy song-and-dance number with monks and swimming nuns). It`s Mel and company at their hilarious best.
