10 Science-Fiction Comedies You Might Have Missed

This weekend marks the 30th anniversary for science-fiction comedy Spaceballs, directed by genius funnyman Mel Brooks. No other director could pull off a movie with Spaceballs‘ weird cast of characters that includes the voice of Joan Rivers, Rick Moranis, John Candy, and more. Spaceballs was released during the decade of the Star Wars craze, but the film pokes fun at other sci-fi favorites from the period like Alien and Planet of the Apes. Despite being one of his most popular films and a box office success, Brooks’ film has the vibe of a lo-fi movie. We compiled some lesser known and appreciated sci-fi comedies that you might have missed in honor of Brooks’ film.
