Storyline

Melvin is a pathetic loser of a motorcycle cop who gets demoted to working the night shift as a punishment for his constant screw-ups. During his off-duty time, however, Melvin turns to his secret obsession: comedy. He puts a paper bag over his head and performs in front of audiences as "The Unknown Comic". Unable to balance his two lives, he seeks psychiatric help to try and resolve who he really wants to be. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

the most tasteless comedy ever made i think
15 March 1999 | by (tampa,florida) – See all my reviews

night patrol is one of the most funniest movies i have ever seen,but the first time i saw it i didn't really like it much. then later on i can't tell you how much i love this movie. almost every scene is tasteless, and i love that. this movie is also a spoof of police movies. it's funnier than police academy. every scene in this movie is wild or tasteless or both, but mostly tasteless.i give it ***1/2 out of ****
