    I recently watched Blazing Saddles with my 16 year old son, and the amount of political incorrectness on display is one of many reasons why I enjoy it. This a movie that couldn't get greenlit to today, based on its uses and subversion of racial epithets, not to mention similar conduct with respect to gay stereotypes. I may pick this up, as I've never bought the original disc, and only have the 40th Anniversary DVD.

    We all have different tastes - especially with comedy.

    I see no reason to be insulting about it.

    Not necessary to comment about another member's lacking a sense of humor. Humor is subjective which is one of the things that makes the human race unique as we all have our differences.

    Yes, humor is subjective. I find BS to be a f'ng funny movie. Just thinking of it can make me laugh. I still remember being on a first date and laughing out loud while thinking "can they say/do that?
