Funny material from Mel Brooks, but the jokes are usually below par. Bill Pullman stars as The Lone Star, a man who owes 1 million spacebucks to Pizza the Hut, is asked by the king of Druidia to find his runaway daughter, Princess Vespa. However, Dark Helmet won't have it because he's using her as ransom for all the air of Druidia. Mostly a spoof of Star Wars and other science fiction flicks; only fans of Mel Brooks are sure to enjoy this.
