“Could Blazing Saddles be made today? No. It’s hard to make a film in a day”

The movie Blazing Saddles (1974) is a comedy classic. Many people say that the movie couldn’t be made today because some of the humor is not “politically correct” and could potentially offend someone. There is an anti-joke to this statement.

“Blazing Saddles couldn’t be made today. They made it already in 1974. You can only make movies once” was posted on Twitter by Epic Futonmania on August 8, 2020. “Blazing Saddles could never be made today the actor would take one look at the script and say ‘This is Blazing Saddles, this has already been done’” was posted on Twitter by RedGinger666 on December 17, 2021. “The movie Blazing Saddles could never be made today. If you took the script to producers in Hollywood, they would look at you and say ‘...this is the script for Blazing Saddles’” was posted on Reddit—3amjokes on August 25, 2022.

“Could Blazing Saddles be made today? No, it’s hard to make a film in a day, and it’s already half one” was posted on Twitter by Jon Bounds on February 9, 2019.

That reminds me of why Blazing Saddles could never be made today. If you gave the script of Blazing Saddles to a movie exec nowadays, they would look at it and say, “We can’t make this, it’s just Blazing Saddles. It’s already been made.”
