I dunno, there. Might need a vote. While Young Frankeinstein is without a doubt one of the funniest films of all time, there are those of us who may get a kick (from cocaine.....)err (movie reference too).. the anchronistic marvel that is Blazing Saddles \:\)

But Young Frankenstein has Gene Wilder playing it relatively straight, Marty Feldman at his most hysterical, Madeleine Kahn in her best performance (Paper Moon to one side... possibly) and just when you think it can't get any better, Gene Hackman shows up with the funniest cameo this side of John Cleese in Doctor Who....
