Mel Brooks' YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN & Carl Reiner's THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS
Mel Brook's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN (PG, 1974, 106 min)
Young Frankenstein is a raucous, irrevent parody of Universal's classic horror films. The story involves Frederick Frankenstein (Gene Wilder) and his effort to resume experiments in re-animation pioneered by his late father. Assisting him is the hapless hunchback Igor (Marty Feldman) and the buxom maiden Inga (Teri Garr), and when Frankenstein succeeds in creating his monster (Peter Boyle), the stage is set for an outrageous revision of the Frankenstein legend.
35th Anniversary Screening Carl Reiner's THE MAN WITH TWO BRAINS (R, 1983, 93 min)
Steve Martin is Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr, famed originator of screw top, zip lock brain surgery. The good doctor pines for his late wife, but slinky siren Dolores Benedict (Kathleen Turner) sashays into his life and changes all that. They're soon married, but the truth quickly emerges: Dolores' beauty hides a calculating heart of stone. The situation is hopeless until another brain specialist's oddball research offers a bizarre ray of hope. Anyone with half a brain will rejoice in the sheer lunacy of this sublimely silly farce, directed and co-written by frequent Martin collaborator Carl Reiner.
