Bad choice for christmas eve
Who did the programming for X-mas eve? Evidently someone obsessed with "cult movies". I remember when this movie came out, and few people that I knew went to see it. X-mas night is one time most family's are together and this is not a movie that appeals across age groups. With so many X-mas movies, why put this type on in prime time? Leave this stuff for Friday nights for the young bunch who think this represents the seventies. It does, at least the drug-influenced ones.

High Anxiety is my favorite movie of all time. I love the opening and the references to other movies such "Pscho"by Alfred Hitchcock.
Theres only ONE man who could have made this film a classic. Gene Wilder. Ive always felt a lot of Mel Brooks movies, would have been better if had directed, and left the acting, comedy to others, as in, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein and Robin Rood Men In Tights. Mel in small doses, ok, but I just don't find him all that funny and point in case History Of The World went from brilliantly funny to boring and incredibly offensive and dull.
Brooks' humorous homage to the films of Alfred Hitchcock. Brooks' is an asylum director who works to uncovers corruption at his workplace. Referencing films like "Vertigo," "Psycho" and "Spellbound;" the jokes are hit or miss and weak. One of Brooks' lesser films. I give it a 2.5/5.
