Tatton Spiller and Diane Daniels from Simple Politics (Instagram, Podcast) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Tatton’s choice The Naked Gun.
The Naked Gun is the 1988 police spoof comedy from David and Jerry Zucker and Jim Abrahams starring Leslie Nielsen as Det. Sgt. Frank Drebin, Priscilla Presley as Jane and O. J. Simpson as Det. Fred Nordberg. In this outing of the Police Squad! franchise Det. Frank Drebin is in charge of security for a visit of Queen Elizabeth II to LA while at the same time investigating a drug bust gone (hilariously) wrong.
The Naked Gun manages to cram in a multitude of slapstick comedy and visual and verbal puns into its lean 85 minute runtime. Gags which have been burned into the memory of Flixwatcher and guests – who doesn’t recall “it’s Enrico Pallazzo!” or “ice beaver”??!!
Could you make The Naked Gun now? Maybe not! The opening scene probably not but the majority of the humour is very childish rather than malicious. The Naked Gun scores highly across all Flixwatcher categories to score a very respectable 4.21 overall.
