Don Druker, Chicago Reader:One of the funniest awful movies ever made.Read more

Vincent Canby, New York Times:Blazing Saddles has no dominant personality, and it looks as if it includes every gag thought up in every story conference. Whether good, bad, or mild, nothing was thrown out.Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times:It's a crazed grabbag of a movie that does everything to keep us laughing except hit us over the head with a rubber chicken.Read more

Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine:Goldarned if the whole fool enterprise is not worth the attention of any moviegoer with a penchant for what one actor, commenting on another's Gabby Hayes imitation, calls 'authentic western gibberish.'Read more

Time Out:The screenplay is credited to five writers, and it shows in the confused melange of styles.Read more
