"so - finally Night Patrol comes out on DVD and what do they do? They mess up the beginning soundtrack by eliminating the extra commentary going on in the background skit, they give no extras or subtitles, they eliminate the bed scene which is the happy ending of the hero/heroine and most of all, THEY DELETE BLAIR COMPLETELY out of the final bed romp and play her giggles while the motion stop image stays there???? AND, to add insult to injury, they eliminate the Blair part of the credit bloopers - what is going on - if i wanted an edited version, i would have waited for it to come back on tv again - what happened to the integrity of original editions? Yeah,I still luv the movie, but what a big disappointment and with no mention upfront (NO PUN INTENDED!)! but, hey, how would it be if all the naughty parts were cut out of dvd reissues of other movies, like dangerfield's "easy money"? the clean - made - 4 - tv edition has no laugh potential at all when he takes the garbage out back and sees the nude sunbathing female neighbor - whatta rip!"
Remember the Unknown Comic from the Gong Show?

"It's him in a low budget but high laughter romp. Langston is a Los Angeles policeman who gets involved in all of the predictable low comedy situations by day and moonlights as the unknown comic with a grocery bag over his head at night. Everything works well for a while, until he's teamed up with Pat Paulsen (in his last notable role, and really his first funny one) on night patrol, when the cops are even less responsible. The humor is rank and generally wedded to sight gags ala Airplane and abundant body function jokes. Actually, I thought Langston's Unknown Comic routine was very funny. The whole movie is if, like me, your sense of humor still functions at an adolescent level. I recommend it, although not for those with sensitive attitudes."
Hilarious and terrible

"Aficionados of USA Up All Night (during the Gilbert / Rhonda era) are sure to be delighted with this DVD. The gags are corny, and the comedy is pretty lowbrow. The acting is pedestrian, at best. The picture is grainy. The editing is like a train wreck. The story line is contrived. The soundtrack (read: one "song", and a bunch of 80's synth interludes) could make a sane person wish they were deaf.
Combine it all, and you have a masterpiece. Yes, this movie is as bad as you remember it, and seeing it uncensored (I'm pretty sure USA is the only channel that ever showed this movie) makes it even worse.
You shouldn't laugh at anything this movie contains, but you will. You'll try to resist, but you'll laugh, and you'll feel dirty for it. In my mind, that's the mark of a fine comedy."
