Once upon a time warp in deep space …

The planet Spaceball is running out of air and the planet's leader, President Skroob, has hatched an evil plan to steal the air from the atmosphere of the neighboring planet Druidia. But Druidia is surrounded by a protective shield that prevents the Spaceballs from stealing the air.

When Druidia's ruler King Roland's beautiful daughter Princess Vespa and her faithful droid Dot Matrix escape from Druidia during her wedding to Prince Valium, the evil commander of the Spaceball fleet, Dark Helmet, captures Princess Vespa, forcing King Roland to give them the access code to the shield. However, heroic space pilot Lone Starr and his sidekick Barf (a mawg, half man and half dog) come to Princess Vespa's rescue.

With the help of Yogurt, the wise and powerful master of the magic ring "The Schwartz", Lone Starr, Barf, Dot Matrix and Princess Vespa set out to save Druida and thwart the plan of Dark Helmet and President Scroob and prevent them from stealing the air of Druidia.

The movie still holds up today with its silly sight gags, memorable dialogue, and inspired performances from comedic legends John Candy and Joan Rivers (screenrant.com)
