80. History of the World: Part I (1981)


Torquemada... do not implore him for compassion.Torquemada... do not beg him for forgiveness.Torquemada... do not ask him for mercy.Let's face it,you can't Torquemada anything!

Mel Brooks takes on a few select moments in history to poke fun at in his least linear feature. This movie is simply a selection of skits that use puns, potty humor, and extreme sexual innuendo to retell the history of early man, Biblical times, the Roman Empire, and the Spanish Inquisition. This movie is worth it for the "eunich" test if nothing more. It also includes a trailer for "History of the World: Part II" featuring Jews in space. Still waiting for that one... or are we....
