One of the most idiotically intelligent or intelligently idiotic films ever produced, THE NAKED GUN is an insanely funny spoof of cop films and hard-boiled detective thrillers from the team behind AIRPLANE. Led by Leslie Nielsen?s deadpan comedic brilliance, THE NAKED GUN understands the material its sending up intimately, ensuring that it expertly hits its targets. Rapid-firing gags at the audience with varying levels of tastelessness, this critical and commercial smash is a gleeful and welcome assault of bathroom humor on the funny bone with an unusually high laugh quotient.
