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.

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.

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.

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.
