I'd give it "first interracial buddy comedy". The first interracial buddy movie was The Defiant Ones.

Waldo Pepper: just_intonation: everlastinggobstopper: A great movie and one of Gene Wilder's best performances. Which one might have been better? Hmmmmm, I wonder......

Young Frankenstein.

Agreed. I've always felt Young Frankenstein was a better movie.


They're both awesome in completely different ways.  Though I do wish they'd copy the Blues Brothers and release unedited versions of the films so we get all the extras in them (i.e., the rest of the Bart vs Mongo Looney Tunes segment, LePetomane visiting the town in Blazing Saddles, Friedrich breaking the violin, the rest of the intellectual discussion, etc....).

A great pleasure of my life as a father was showing this movie to him on DVD at about the same age (12) that I saw it. It cracked him up and he's got parts of it memorized. Still hilarious, although I think Young Frankenstein, somewhat strangely, holds up better.

I remember seeing Blazing Saddles when it first aired on CBS in the early 80s.  They left all the n-words in but the fart sounds in the campfire scene were edited out.  And to think they now allow fart jokes on kid shows now.

wildcardjack: Not just interracial buddy, but interracial cop buddy genre. There could be no Lethal Weapon or Die Hard 3 without Blazing Saddles. Or maybe there could, I don't know, I'm not too hot on the buddy movies of the late 70's and 80's.


not a cop movie but did everyone forget the TV show Ispy with Cosby and Culp in the 60's

As funny as that line is, it's the old lady in the crowd screaming and passing out on hearing it, that always busts me up.

It could, but it would be on Vimeo and YouTube, not theaters and TV.
