A little something to offend everyone... 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: A Space Odyssey 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-a

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: A Space Odyssey 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!

Mel Brooks' historical parody is split into five sections: In 'The Stone Age', a caveman invents music after dropping a rock on his foot. However the development of the fine arts brings with it an unwelcome side-effect - the birth of the critic. 'The Roman Empire' sees Jesus and his disciples being served by a pushy waiter at the Last Supper, whilst 'The Spanish Inquisition' is turned into a big-budget musical number. Truly revolting peasants revolt in 'The French Revolution' and 'Coming Attractions' promises a sequel featuring Hitler performing an ice ballet.
