National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 Reviews

August 11, 2020
If I listened closely, I could hear faint snores. (The more I think about it, they might have been my own.)

There is enough material to provide grins and, sometimes, guffaws.

There may not be a laugh every minute, but there are enough to satisfy most devotees of the relentlessly silly, tasteless school of parody.
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.

A new low in lame spoofery.

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.

A buddy cop parody of the lowest possible caliber.

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.
