Classic. Watch it again and again.
on January 19, 2017
This movie is greatness on a plate. Is the humor new? No. Get Smart and Airplane was ahead of Frank Drebin but that's not the point. I actually remember seeing the Police Squad series in its first run. Hilarious. Leslie Nielsen sells this character the same way Don Adams did. When something goes awry, he is not bothered. He is immediately on to the next deal. The sight gags, the wordplay. There is a lot to keep track of and watch for. That means you can watch the movie six times (if you like this humor, you will, if you don't, you won't make it through the movie at all) and you will still see another gag lurking in the background. Sometimes the gag is right there, but you missed it because you were laughing so hard. This movie is a classic. Period.
