Seriously though---if I had seen this before I posted my Top Movies of 2005....this would've been on that list.

But yes, Mel Brooks is comedy god. We should all worship him and errect giant golden idols in his name.

'Smart comedian'?Goodwill said:I don't think he was cast well for the film, but since he's here, I thought he might do alright. It's good to know he's translated well into a smart comedian. Personally, I really didn't find Anchorman to be funny - or smart.

I'm hardly Will Ferrell's biggest fan, but I find it silly to say that working with Mel Brooks automatically means he's trying to translate into a 'smart comedian' as if associating with Brooks is all it takes to increase your comedic cache.
If anything, Brooks has never been shy about being infantile in films like Robin Hood: Men in Tights and Spaceballs inserting gags about blind masturbators and lightsaber penis jokes.
