Critic Reviews for The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
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 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.
Audience Reviews for The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!
Another great hit from the team ZAZ with the brillant Leslie Nielsen in his most remember role, or at least one of the most remember, Lt.Frank Drebin.
One of the funniest films to exist. This superb comedy proves that Leslie Nielsen is the King of slapstick. With so many laughs, this may most likely leave you with stitches from constant laughter.
The Naked Gun is the daddy of parody movies. Along with Leslie's previous film "Airplane!". Its usually the amount of slapstick that breaks comedy films. This film however is the rare film that is made by it.
