The Naked Gun

From the Files of Crap Squad. Leslie Nielsen once again teams up with Jim Abrahams and the Zuckers to make a parody, but this time around it’s pure crud. They tried to make a go of the whole “Police Squad” cop show parody on TV, and it flopped massively. This first movie in the set met with a bit more success with audiences, but it’s at best a pale shadow of Airplane! Most of the comedy is physical, and a lot of it is so predictable and repetitive that it gets annoying after awhile. My favorite part of the whole production was the end credits, both because they included some subtle jokes and because they meant the movie was over. See if desperate
