I gave this to my husband as a gift, but my son and I enjoy it just as much. Classic comedy that we can watch as a family. Sometimes we quote lines from Mel Brooks movies and a favorite line is "It's good to be the king" and this collection of dvds also includes a book with that title!
I recommend this as a great gift to give.
