In praise of Leslie Nielsen….
The movie itself is funny. “The Naked Gun” is without a doubt the best skewering of all cop movie cliches available in this day and age. It works on every conceivable level and a few that haven’t been conceived yet.
But what puts it over the top is Leslie Nielsen.
It’s amazing: he was great in “Airplane!”, another classic from the ZAZ team (Zucker, Abrahams, Zucker), and in the lamentably short TV series “Police Squad!”. But here, he spreads his wings and flies to new heights of insanity and delerium. With jaw set square and tongue firmly in cheek, Neilsen makes the role of Lt. Frank Drebin all his own and the movie-going public’s collective life is all the more enriched because of it.
He’s aided and abetted by greats like Kennedy, Presley and Montalban (who knew?) and the movie even finds good moments for John Houseman and Reggie Jackson.
As I said, the movie takes off and finds great things to do with police cars with a mind all their own and goes on from there to take on such cliches as car chases, illegal searches, the cleaning out of the desk, the trip to the police lab, shoot-outs, the lax housework of a single police detective, etc., etc., etc…..
And what other cop movie in the history of the world has a music video in the middle, courtesy of Herman’s Hermits?
Ten stars and a Dugout Dog for “The Naked Gun”, the film that answers once and for all – can Leslie Nielsen do comedy?
I think you know the answer.
Only Leslie Nielsen could do this!
For sheer goof-ball exuberance, you needn’t look any further than “The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad!”. Leslie Nielsen remains forever associated with the role of inept Lt. Frank Drebin, who always tries to do the right thing but always makes a mess of everything. Here, he’s trying to foil an assassination attempt on Queen Elizabeth. Since this is from the people behind “Airplane!”, it means that much of the humor derives from twisted dialogue and things popping out of the background. To crown it all, there’s even a guest appearance by “Weird Al” Yankovic as himself. Also starring are Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson, and Ricardo Montalban.
And to think that Leslie Nielsen started out in movies like “Forbidden Planet”!
