Movie Review: History of the World Part 1 (1981)

This scattershot Mel Brooks spoof is both dull and sporadically amusing. The Stone Age segment is dull. The skit about the 15, no, 10 Commandments is hilarious. The Roman Empire segment is vulgar and goes on too long. The Spanish Inquisition musical number is just bad. However the French Revolution segment is a break from the stale and pungent. Sadly overall this is dull.
