"Wilma, I promise you; whatever scum did this, not one man on this force will rest one minute until he's behind bars. Now, let's grab a bite to eat."

By the late 1980s, the ZAZ trio (consisting of David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker) were officially the new gurus of the film spoof genre. Previously this crown was donned by Mel Brooks. After witnessing the ZAZ trio first flex... read more

I have never been a fan of spoof movies but since it is a huge classic, I thought I would definitely enjoy this one. Eventually, I thought the whole thing was pretty disappointing... Of course, there were here and there some funny jokes but I can't say I was laughing throughout the whole thing. Like another Listal users pointed out in her review, maybe back then these jokes were timely but 25 year... read more

Oh my, where do I start with this film. Okay, when I was first introduced to this film, I thought a "typical police spoof", which yeah...it was, but it was actually funny, and I laughed like hell throughout it, and that's all I ask in a comedy; to do what it promises. At the time, I hadn't seen Police Squad the television series, well, I wish I had. I wish I'd have found this entertaining film and... read more

"The team from Airplane! are back with the big screen version of their cult TV series. Leslie Neilsen is hilarious as Detective Frank Drebin, assigned to discover why one of his officers was left for dead but stumbling on a plot to kill Queen Elizabeth II. Not as funny as their previous efforts, this still has more gags per scene than most regular comedies and how can you not laugh at a film that has the line, nice Beaver!"

" The Ups: It manage to be better than the TV show that it was based upon and has some great sight gags and is probably the best police show parody film made and Leslie Nielsen's best comedic role. Good supporting cast too and worth seeing only for Ricardo Montalban becoming flat as a pancake."

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2017: Last Half (99 movies items)

" Before spoof films turned out to be completely abysmal, we got things like The Naked Gun, which is a terrific spoof film. Hitting us with clever dialogue and amusing set pieces, this is a film that shows us what the spoof genre can be, if the filmmakers pay attention to story, characters and dialogue. The jokes are properly set up and the pay off is ultimately satisfying. "

"31.3. Lapsena naurattanut ja varmaan 30 kertaa nähty hupsuttelu nauratti tällä kertaa vähän vähemmän. Luultavasti se naurattaisi vielä vähemmän, jos en olisi nähnyt sitä niin montaa kertaa nuorempana. Väitän silti, että leffasta löytyy niitä hyviäkin vitsejä. Tuntui vähän tyhmältä katsoa tätä ja naurahtaa tuleville heitoille ennen kuin niitä sanottiin. Vaikutin varmaan kanssakatsojastani aivan idiootilta."

"Leslie Nielsen In terms of an actor’s craft, rarely has a transition from dramatic seriousness to comedic silliness been so seemingly smooth as when Leslie Nielsen teamed up with Jim Abrahams and brothers Jerry and David Zucker to unleash comedies like Airplane! and The Naked Gun. With several decades’ worth of TV roles and appearances in memorable Hollywood genre pictures like Forbidden Planet and The Poseidon Adventure behind him, Nielsen transformed his strong, masculine presence into a s"

Wow... That must be one of the very few positive reviews you have posted on this website... And, of course, it was for a movie which might be a classic but hardly an amazing deep masterpiece.
