If you had to choose between buying the DVD Rooster Cogburn with john Wayne and Katie Hep, and Mel Brooks' Blazing Saddles, which one would you pick?

Well? Which one? And you can’t say “Neither!” because your life depends on it, you see…

I like both movies but will go with Rooster Cogburn. ;0

Blazing Saddles. You can watch it over and over again. Rooster Cogburn was not a very good film, not even for John Wayne.

Blazing Saddles by a long shot!

That movie is SO damn funny…I wish I could quote some of my favorite lines, but they’re all so un-PC that I’d probably be e-lynched by those lacking a sense of humor.

Blazing Saddles.
I’ll be back to spam this thread with Blazing Saddles quotes until you buy it!

Either one….you didn’t say I had to watch it

Blazing Saddles. Because they didn’t need no stinkin’ badges.

My favorite is when the sheriff pulls a gun on himself to escape the crowd:

“Anybody moves and the n***** gets it!” (voice change) “Oh lawdy lawd, do what he say! Do what he saaaayyy!!!!”

I hired you people to try to get a little track laid, not to jump around like a bunch of Kansas City faggots.

Blazing Saddles was a bold statement against racism, the likes of which had never before been seen. It’s brilliant.

God darnit, Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a twenty dollar whore.

@syz…. Favorite line?
Mine…

“Qualifications”
“Rape ,arson, murder, rape”
“You said rape twice”
“I, like rape”

Gotta love Mel Brooks….

@boffin There are so many, I could hardly choose!

LOL!! Watching it now!

Everybody sing “Swing low, sweet chariot….” (Seriously, I sang that in child labor….only time I ever sang on key, my husband said…..pain will make you sing on key, I’m here to tell you…) Camp Town Ladies Sing Dis Song, Doo Dah! Doo Dah!!

I find John Wayne to be overrated and boring as an actor. So I’d go with Blazing Saddles.

Blazing Saddles.

Rooster who? What’s that?

Blazing saddles…Al Caras right hooking that poor horse was just crazy!

ucme's avatar

Blazin Saddles, no brainer for me. “You teutonic twat!” :¬)

boffin's avatar

Allowing for equal time here…

“That’s pretty bold talk for a one eyed fat man.”

Dutchess_III's avatar

@jaytkay Guess you better go rent Blazing Saddles!

Kardamom's avatar

Although Rooser Cogburn is a pretty good movie, I really can’t stand John Wayne. Blazzing Saddles is one of the funniest movies ever, choose that! If you’ve never seen it before, prepare yourself to start quoting lines from the movie. You won’t be able to help yourself.

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

Blazing Saddles. It’s one of the few movies I can quote all the way through.

boffin's avatar

@shpadoinkle_sue I’ll bet one of the others is, “Young Frankenstein.”

Kardamom's avatar

@boffin Young Frankenstein is even better than Blazing Saddles! Both of them have so many great quotable lines. I would love to see a one person play by @shpadoinkle_sue doing all of the lines! That would be really fun.

shpadoinkle_sue's avatar

@boffin It is. :) I can’t listen to Puttin On The Ritz at all without a Peter Boyle-esque accent in the chorus.
@Kardamom That’d be so awesome!
