The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! a gift from the crew that gave us the original Airplane! is a charmingly unstable comedy whose "everything-but-the-kitchen-sink" approach to shtick is downright surreal.

Run, don't walk, to The Naked Gun. Even if you have to elbow your sweet old mother-in-law or moony grandson out of the way to get to it, by all means do. You won't be sorry. It's that funny.

Hilarious irreverent slapstick comedy satire.

It gave me about 10 big laughs and 20 small laughs and as many smiles. That`s value for time and money spent.

In the years since he first played Drebin, Nielsen has deepened the role, made it more subtle, more universal, more paramount.

The two Zuckers and Abrahams have, surprisingly, forgotten a principle of parody that they taught everyone else. Namely, that the jokes have to fit, and that they have to refer to the target -- in this instance police movies.

The proud regard in which this farce holds bad taste makes it endearing.

The Naked Gun is hugely funny, but it`s also liberating-precisely because it centers its aim on that cold, closed system and blows it apart. The straight lines are shattered; the empty spaces in the images are packed full until they burst.

Like the ZAZ lads' other films, this is a movie made for a VCR Saturday night. They supply the jokes; you bring the microwave popcorn and modest expectations.

For those who savor silliness, The Naked Gun is humor heaven.

The Naked Gun is destined to become a cult comedy classic. If the holiday run doesn`t make a bundle, the returns on the video cassette will.

The determinedly juvenile gags never stop flowing.

The action isn't as consistently funny or surprising this time, but there's a lot of laughter to be found between the merely crude moments.

Who needs decency and good taste when you've got gags this funny? A classic of its type.

All in all, a balloon-sized hoot.

The Naked Gun is still very funny more than 20 years later. Leslie Nielsen is awesome, and the gags are more hit than miss.

It would have been nothing without Leslie Nielsen, but this was one of the funniest slapstick comedies of the 1980s.

Bawdy, dumb-humor classic spoofs '80s cop dramas.

...still a hilarious movie, and anyone with a funny bone in his body will probably find it amusing.

Nielsen in particular is superb, cracking his faade for only the biggest of jokes.
