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!"

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. "
