Much better than expected

"Actually found it was much better than expected. Let me admit I am a Leslie Nielsen fan, however, even then some of his films are a bit on the ridiculous side. This actually had something of a plot. It was a bit less silly than most of his films, having him play a harder-edged character than usual.
Not sure where they came up with the cover. Rather unrelated to the movie. Obviously not an Oscar caliber movie, but worth kicking back and enjoying on a free evening."

"Leslie Nielsen has certainly given us some funny movies, look at the Naked Gun series..and his foray into comedy after years of serious roles certainly endeared him to those of us who like our comedy a little corny and offbeat. However, as years have gone by, Nielsen has merely called in performances in some really impotent comedies, this one included. Blame director James Keach for some of it; his pacing is so slow, it can't come anywhere near the airplane and naked gun movies. While I have admired Lochlyn Munro's performances in some recent films (the Scary Movie ripoffs, Blacktop), he doesn't possess the comic verve necessary to carry the weight of this movie. William Forsythe does well with his sheriff role, but Vanessa Angel (from "Sabertooth") continues to perform like a high school thespian. The laughs are there, but they are far and few between."
