The Naked Gun: From The Files Of Police Squad!

The team that brought us The Kentucky Fried Movie, Airplane!, and Top Secret!Jerry Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and David Zucker, assisted in this case by Pat Proftturn their attention to sending up the police thriller; David Zucker directs. The ill-fated 1982 TV series Police Squad by the same bunch serves as one of the sources. Leslie Nielsen, Priscilla Presley, Ricardo Montalban, George Kennedy, O.J. Simpson, Nancy Marchand, John Houseman, and Reggie Jackson are among the cast. Not quite up to Airplane! or Top Secret!, but there are still laughs aplenty. (JR)
