National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 Reviews

August 11, 2020
Neither Estevez nor Jackson displays much sense of comic edge. So after 15 minutes or so, "Loaded Weapon" becomes a shaggy cop story, a pointless joke that runs on ad nauseam.

If I listened closely, I could hear faint snores. (The more I think about it, they might have been my own.)
August 11, 2020
There is enough material to provide grins and, sometimes, guffaws.
August 11, 2020
There are enough serious laughs to suggest that Quintano may give the Abrahams-Zucker team (Naked Gun; Airplane) substantial competition in the mainstream parody business.
August 11, 2020
There may not be a laugh every minute, but there are enough to satisfy most devotees of the relentlessly silly, tasteless school of parody.

I haven't experienced such a silent audience for an alleged comedy since last year's horrid Stop, Or My Mom Will Shoot.

Iffy humor, sex in dated cop movie spoof.

Loaded Weapon 1 delivers with every line of dialogue, every bit of slapstick, and every reference it throws down.

This bid by the National Lampoon team to cash in with some Naked Gun-style spoofery lacks the brainless invention of the latter films, but still manages to score quite a few laughs.
July 27, 2015
Neither the writing nor the acting is strong enough here.
September 7, 2011
A raucous parody of bodies-through-the-plate-glass-window action flicks, the movie has been made in a slavish but pedestrian imitation of the Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker house style.
March 26, 2009
More an imitation than a parody, this would-be comedy is very short on laughs and gives away virtually all of them in its coming-attractions trailer.
June 24, 2006
A new low in lame spoofery.
May 6, 2005
As much a poor man's "Hot Shots" if ever they were

A second-rate attempt to out-Zucker the Zucker brothers.

A film so disastrously slight that you've forgotten 95% of the gags by the time you pull out of the parking lot.
