Madeline Kahn, Harvey Korman and Cloris Leachman join writer-director-co-star comedy genius Mel Brooks in this hilarious homage to Hitchcock.

And when he winds up accused of the crime, he gets a serious case of High Anxiety.

Common Sense Says
Very very funny Hitchcock spoof with some adult humor.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this spoof on Hitchcock movies contains some adult themes, such as mental illness, bondage, and some violence (a fall from a great height and a gunshot wound). But since it's a spoof, the real Hitchcockian suspense and tension is replaced with silliness.
