Reviewed on 5/9/2020...
From the files of Police it might as well be.

If you're in the mood for a space opera parody loaded with creatures from other worlds and bold takeoffs on Hollywood and Washington glitterati, this is the film for you. Frank Drebbin has given way to Marshal Dick Dix, who rescues the President of the USA with Drebbin's level of ineptitude. The script gives Leslie Nielsen multiple opportunities for slapstick, double entendres, and outright lewdness. He does not miss a one.

2001 is just as outrageous and offensive as any of the Police Squad movies but not quite as funny.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first saw this Movie in Moscow Russia on a Cable Channel at the Hotel that I was staying in in 2005.I only caught the last 30 minutes of it.but I laughed the whole 30 minutes.I tried to locate this movie many time,until recently when I logged on to Leslie Nielsons Web Site,and found this movie.
I found it as funny today,as I did in 2005.

"Leslie Nielsen takes aim at: Sci-Fi
and Bill Clinton at the same time.
Yes, he's still chasing the babes
and he IS over 70! Nobody else could
have pulled this off but a Canadian!"
Haven't bought the DVD yet but!

"I saw this movie on Tivo the other day and I thought it was funny and granted it is kinda stupid in some parts but when you watch these kind of movies no matter how good or bad they are you expect to see this kind of thing. My favorite part was the 3 fake tenors singing "In The Navy" by the Village People.

I actually liked it better than Naked Gun 2 1/2. I'm also getting the Police Squad series when it comes out."
