Mel Brooks’ Star Wars spoof, is still one of the greatest parodies of all time. In a distant galaxy, planet Spaceball has depleted its air supply. In desperation, Spaceball's leader President Skroob (Mel Brooks) orders the evil Dark Helmet (Rick Moranis) to kidnap Princess Vespa (Daphne Zuniga) of oxygen-rich Druidia and hold her hostage in exchange for air. But help arrives for the Princess in the form of renegade space pilot Lone Starr (Bill Pullman) and his half-man, half-dog Barf (John Candy). (1987, 96 mins)
