Critic Reviews of "Blazing Saddles"TIME MagazineAugust 22, 2008
Goldarned if the whole fool enterprise is not worth the attention of any moviegoer with a penchant for what one actor, commenting on another's Gabby Hayes imitation, calls 'authentic western gibberish.'Chicago ReaderApril 02, 2008
One of the funniest awful movies ever made.VarietyApril 02, 2008
Although Cleavon Little and Gene Wilder head a uniformly competent cast, pic is handily stolen by Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn. Kahn is simply terrific doing a Marlene Dietrich lampoon.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The screenplay is credited to five writers, and it shows in the confused melange of styles.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
It's a crazed grabbag of a movie that does everything to keep us laughing except hit us over the head with a rubber chicken.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Blazing Saddles has no dominant personality, and it looks as if it includes every gag thought up in every story conference. Whether good, bad, or mild, nothing was thrown out.FlavorwireJune 18, 2016
Its genius, then and now, was the manner in which director Mel Brooks and his writers turned a broad Western spoof into what was, for its time, a revolutionary satire of race relations.Total FilmMay 01, 2014
A movie that neither blazes or misfires, falling somewhere between the horrors of Spaceballs and the genius of Young Frankenstein.Radio TimesMay 01, 2014
This all-singing, all-belching western spoof remains one of Mel Brooks's finest creations.Cinema CrazedMarch 27, 2014
It's the best [director] Brooks has ever offered his audience.LarsenOnFilmFebruary 22, 2014
...may look like a Western, but in actuality it takes place in just another corner of Mel Brooks' mad brain.Common Sense MediaJanuary 01, 2011
Kids may not get all of Brooks' Old West parody.
