31 Days of Dracula | Leslie Nielsen (1995)
I'm usually a big fan of Leslie Nielsen (Wrongfully Accused is one of my favorite movies of all time), but I passed on Dracula: Dead and Loving It, Mel Brooks' attempt to cash in on Bram Stoker's Dracula the way Robin Hood: Men in Tights had cashed in on Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves two years before. I know Men in Tights has its fans, and I didn't despise it, but I also didn't think it was very inspired or funny. The trailers for Dead and Loving It didn't convince me that it would be any better, nor does the 9% rating it has on Rotten Tomatoes.
Still, Nielsen can make me laugh by just standing there, so he makes the 31.
