Young Frankenstein is so overrated. I've only laughed like 2 or 3 times during its runtime. ive never been so disappointed in comedy since the holy grail. theyre intersting mvoies but the were not funny.

Surprised to see the negative comments on display here. I wouldn't say it's as big of a comedy classic as many folks do, but I certainly enjoyed it, even if it did take a while for the humor to really get me. Gene Wilder was fantastic.

I would've preferred a 106 minute clip of the actors having lunch. It's ashame that the humour and material is very weak because all the actors here are amusing
