The Twelve ChairsDirector: Mel Brooks, Ron Moody, Frank Langella, Dom DeLuise
Mel Brooks' follow-up to The Producers, The Twelve Chairs, comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Mono. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include the theatrical trailer. This is a fine release from Image that would be of interest to any Brooks fan.

I saw this movie when it first came out and haven't forgotten it! It is supposedly Frank Langella,s first big screen role and he is gorgeous! I also love the theme song "Hope For The Best, Expect The Worst". Applicable today.
I remember seeing this movie in a theatre when I was very young. It has alwatys been our family's favorite movie. We still talk about it to this day. We also have a family joke when one eats their dinner so fast, my dad would say "You're eating like the guy in the movie of 12 chairs!!!! Truly a very very funny movie!!!
We love this film. It has a tight, wonderfully crafted script that reads like a timeless short story. It has great comic acting and is full of very penetrating observations about history, human passions, and life.
Twelve Chairs is not Mel Brooks funniest movies but it is still very good and has a great cast but especially Frank Langella (Dracula), Ron Moody (Oliver) and Dom Deluise (Numerous other Mel Brooks' movies) and of course Mel Brooks himself who makes a brief appearance as an indentured servent. The story is about three men and their search for twelve chairs one of which has very valuble expensive jewels hidden in it and the race to find the chairs is very funny and I enjoyed watching all of the antics and I aso couldn't keep my eyes of the gorgeous Frank Langella
