Hell, there's even a feature on the DVD where they point out all of the failed effects.

** Prince Valium, last prince of the galaxy, so boring he puts everyone (including himself) to sleep. [[Film/{{Beetlejuice}} Is it any wonder sleeping with him would have the same result?]]

*** Even better when you realize the same actor went on to play [[StarTrekVoyager Tuvok]]. Yes, just ''try'' picturing the stoic Vulcan telling Janeway "we ain't found shit!"

* VindicatedByCable: Upon release, many reviews were middling (particularly as ''Star Wars'' had been dormant for a while - of course, this was before [[ShallowParody narrow parodies of recent films]] became the norm...), to the point the Stinkers Bad Movie Awards named it the worst movie of 1987 and the movie is named in our wiki as Mel Brooks' CreatorKiller. On video and television, it managed to achieve CultClassic status and is well-regarded among Brooks' work.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qmKs7_pjhM Spaceballs theme song]] that plays during the escape pod scene.
** The Score (especially the beginning and end theme).



* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Given how the effects were done by Creator/IndustrialLightAndMagic, [[ParodyAssistance who also created the special effects of Star Wars]]...
** ''Spaceball One'', the prop looks just as good the ships in ''Franchise/StarWars''.
** The obvious track aside, the dancing Xenomorph is actually a pretty decent puppet for a comedy.
