Young Frankenstein movie was released Nov 03, 1998 by the 20th Century Fox studio. An affectionate parody that pays homage to the FRANKENSTEIN films (from the novel FRANKENSTEIN by Mary Shelley) directed by James Whale in the 1930s, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is both a zany comedy and a cinematic tour de force. Written by director Mel Brooks and the film's star, Gene Wilder, YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN has all the usual--and in this case slightly unusual--suspects: the reluctant scientist Frederick Frankenstein, who is actually the grandson of the infamous creature-creator (pronounced "Fronken-steen" and played by Wilder), his spoiled fiancée (Madeline Kahn), Igor the pop-eyed hunchback (Marty Feldman), his dizzy assistant (Teri Garr), the castle's hideous head housekeeper (Cloris Leachman), and, of course, the Monster (Peter Boyle). ...See Full Description

||Solid and Superb|
Young Frankenstein movie One of Mel Brooks' very best because he stayed on the subject-matter. Lots of satire and in-jokes,especially familiar to those who know the old Frankenstein movies. All the stars are absolutely outstanding and it's impossible to give any particular one lots of huzzahs! And wait'll you see who plays the Blind Man! One of those few comedies where you'll burst out laughing in your own living room.

||The best Mel Brook's film|
This is a classic must-see comedy. Gene Wilder puts on a show as always and be sure not to miss Gene Hackman's hilarious cameo performance.

||5 Star Movie|
Young Frankenstein is a comedy classic that should be in everyone's collection. I still laugh out loud at this great comedy effort, even after veiwing this flic 4 or 5 dozen times.

||One of his best|
Young Frankenstein video Any fan of the wacky humor of Mel Brooks must see this film. Clever dialogue and excellent cast make this Frankenstein spoof one of the funniest movies ever made. I became a fan of Mel Brooks and have seen most of his films, of which Young Frankenstein is one of the best. Gene Wilder makes a perfect Dr. Frankenstein, and Marty Feldman is hilarious as a bizarre Igor. I can honestly say that I watched the entire film, laughing the whole time. A must see.
