A parody of Top Gun in which a talented but unstable fighter pilot must overcome the ghosts of his father and save a mission sabotaged by greedy weapons manufacturers. A faulty computer causes a passenger space shuttle to head straight for the Sun. Can Ted Striker save the day and get the shuttle back on track - again? Sight gags and non-sequiturs dominate this spoof of police dramas. The six episodes formed the basis for the very successful "Naked Gun" film franchise.

The plot: Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Vincent Ludwig has plans to assassinate her using a brainwashed baseball player.
Written by Rob Hartill. I suppose when it comes down to it,I am very easily entertained when it comes to comedy. It just doesn't take much to make me laugh.
The makers of The Naked Gun did their job well. The film is so overloaded with sight gags,that if you blink,you just might miss one,or maybe even two of them. The slightest distractions will make you miss something. Some of the humor is vulgar and downright tasteless,but nonetheless funny.
The final sequences involving the baseball game were the best. With the possible exception of O. Simpson,who was never good when he tried to act,this was a grand all around comedic effort,and comedy,as many have said,is hard to produce.
I actually can recall the short lived television series that this film is based on. Only six episodes were produced,and it was a shame more were not made. I was glad to see it come roaring back on the big screen. Perhaps it belonged there all along. Looking for some great streaming picks?
