McDonald at the Movies: The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!

Thu, Sept, 21 / 7 pm
Directed by David Zucker
1988, USA, 85 min

Once a month, comedian and co-founder of Kids in the Hall, Kevin McDonald, will choose and introduce a handpicked film from the archives of comic history.

The creators of the cult hit Airplane!, returned with this terrific parody of cop shows based on their 1982 TV show Police Squad! Their ingenuity was in casting stone faced Leslie Nielsen as the bumbling detective Frank Drebin who tries to solve the murder of the missing Queen Elizabeth II.

Reviews

More juvenile than a Mel Brooks movie, wittier than "Get Smart," almost as low as "Animal House" and close to the laugh count of "Airplane!" The Naked Gun" is a loving parody of every cop show that ever syndicated its way to your living room.
