A rogue star pilot and his trusty sidekick must come to the rescue of a Princess and save the galaxy from a ruthless race of beings known as Spaceballs.
Tim Russ played the Spaceball trooper in the "Comb the Desert" scene who says "We ain't found shit!" He later went on to play Tuvok in Star Trek: Voyager (1995). Star Trek (1966) is parodied in the film.
Colonel Sandurz: What is it, Sergeant Ricco?
Radio Operator: You told me to let you know the moment Planet Druidia was in sight, sir.
Colonel Sandurz: So?
Radio Operator: Planet Druidia's in sight, sir.
Colonel Sandurz: You're really a Spaceball. You know that, don't you?
Radio Operator: Thanks, sir.
When Lone Starr and Barf jam Spaceball 1, Michael Winslow calls over Colonel Sandurz and Dark Helmet. Right before Dark Helmet says "raspberry", Michael Winslow puts his hand over his mouth. In the next shot his hand isn't there anymore.
In the style of the "Star Wars" movies, there are no opening credits, only the title followed by a crawl.
Both the U.S MGM laserdisc and DVD are misframed, cropping the right side of the screen slightly (in both the widescreen, and full-frame versions).
$6,600,000 (USA) (28 June 1987)
