Loaded Weapon 1 delivers with every line of dialogue, every bit of slapstick, and every reference it throws down.
July 27, 2015
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.

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.

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.

actually very funny
| Original Score: 3/4

A new low in lame spoofery.

As much a poor man's "Hot Shots" if ever they were
| Original Score: 2/5
April 30, 2004
A second-rate attempt to out-Zucker the Zucker brothers.

March 16, 2004
A film so disastrously slight that you've forgotten 95% of the gags by the time you pull out of the parking lot.

Watching "Loaded Weapon 1" is like playing Trivial Pursuit with experts. It's exhausting.
March 25, 2003
In a career of poor choices, perhaps this one was the worst. Oh sure, it made money, but it also turned Emilio Estevez into Leslie Nielsen.

It's hard to satirize a satire. That's what "National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1" wants to do, but the target proves elusive. This is a would-be comedy that's not as funny (nor as satirical) as the movies that inspired it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 1, 2000
A buddy cop parody of the lowest possible caliber.
January 1, 2000
Here's a film that's more than a little pleased with itself. But the audience is not likely to feel the same amount of pleasure.
