"Spaceballs" is a 1987 comedy and features Rick Moranis in the role of Dark Helmet alongside John Candy's Barf and Bill Pullman's character Lone Starr. The movie centers around a Star Wars parody, but is so much more than that. Planet Druidia's King Roland is trying to marry his daughter Princess Vespa to Prince Valium, but she gets kidnapped by the Spaceballs. In return for the Princess, the Spaceballs want all of the air of Druidia in order to save planet Spaceball. In order to save his daughter, King Roland enlists the help of Lone Starr.

This movie is a classic that parodies the likes of Star Wars, Star Trek and Police Academy, to name a few. It became a comedy before some of us even knew why and it still holds up today.
