Just too silly for words. A treasure trove of immature, sometimes gross, sometimes only suggestive humor. Not to be watched with impressionable children.

Leslie Nielsen is a slapstick comic genius, perfectly cast here. His tidy white hair and grandfatherly look contrast perfectly with Drebbin's bumbling, inappropriate character. Be prepared to laugh out loud.

I had forgotten this gem until I was casting about for a good movie to distract me from the annoyance of my exercise machine and the boredom of being quarantined.

Too good to be forgotten, as my fifth grade autograph book suggests.

The beginning of the Naked Gun series, bring Leslie Neilsen as Lt. Frank Drebin, a bumbling cop, pretty much in the style of Inspector Clousseau (Peter Sellers) in The Pink Panther films. This films are full of slapstick and silliness, absurd jokes and situations. You can't see this film and at least chuckle.

So many sight gags it takes repeated viewing to catch 'em!

"I'm not going to summarize the plot of this movie. Others have already done that. I'm just going to tell you I think it's one of the funniest films I've ever seen.I love this kind of sight gag humor. And nobody does it better than Leslie Neilsen.The Police Squad! videos are priceless TV detective show parodies. It's a pity only a handful of episodes were ever made. They're a blast to watch -- especially the end credits when the actors "freeze" yet everything else in the scene continues to move. Really dumb humor, but it gets me every time. Which is why I love this, the first of the three Naked Gun movies. They feature the same bumbling detective (Neilsen) and the same intrepid team that created the short-lived TV series.I can watch this film and laugh every time. My favorite scenes are the chalk outline floating on the water...the shoe shine guy to which Lt. Drebin palms money for information...and, well, I could name scene after scene.Naked Gun is not for everyone. Not everyone likes the rapid-fire sight gag humor that makes this movie (and The Simpsons) such a joy to behold.But if that kind of humor tickles your funny bone, Naked Gun will cause you to laugh all the way to the store to buy the other two installments."
Great Movie, But I Want The TV Version!

"The Naked Gun-From The Files Of Police Squad. I don't need to talk about this movie. It's great. It's non-stop laughs. It's a must see. So what's the problem? The problem's not with the movie. It's with this DVD. Don't expect to much from silly Paramount, but has anyone ever watched this on cut TV, like USA, Comedy Central, or ABC? If so, you know the cutting out and editing of scenes for a certain channel tri trims a time slot, so they replace maybe 15 minutes with deleted scenes! And very funny deleted scenes I might add. One is where Frank Drebin is seen at a gym in the shower (of the woman's bathroom). Another is where Ludwig shoots Frank in the catchers's thing (didn't anyone ever notice it deflated?) and one where Frank turns off Nordberg's air at the hospital. All these scenes are outrageous and hilariously funny, but no version except the TV one has these scenes. I'm not going to buy any Naked Gun DVD until the scene's are restored. Same with Naked Gun 2, Airplane!, and Airplane 2.
Don't by this 'till Paramount realizes we want deleted scenes!If you found my review helpful, please be sure to vote for me!"
You'll get gas from laughing so hard!

"I saw this movie at the cinema, and when I walked out of the darkened theatre my sides hurt so much from laughing you would have sworn I was suffering from appendicitis, and I rivalled Niagara Falls in my crying - the tears were just streaming down my face! This inane, farcical comedy has got to be one of the funniest films ever released. It's silly, but the silliness is funny and not pointless. Even the cameo actors are houmourous! Leslie Nielsen is fantastic as the deadpan, very moronic Frank Drebin, a bumbling detective who wouldn't know a criminal from a saint, and George Kennedy and OJ Simpson are perfect foils for his lunacy. (I'm surprised. I said something NICE about OJ Simpson!) And Priscilla Presley has never looked better. She and Leslie Nielsen have a chemistry between them that is lacking in many serious or other comedy movies. What can I say? This movie is great! I order you to stop reading these reviews and go and rent or buy this movie! Believe me, you won't regret it!"
