A highly successful TV executive decides to put his job on hold after getting an update from his father that he and his wife are divorced and decides to extend his break after revealing that his father is a diabetic.
Friday and Streebek are assigned to some very strange robberies, like i.e. the stealing of one bat, a 30 foot long snake and the mane of a lion from a zoo. All the latest BAIT magazines were also recently stolen, and some chemicals that when are mixed correctly develops a very deadly gas. All these thefts have one thing in common; visit cards with the word "PAGAN" left at the crime scenes. Solving these crimes, including why plenty of police vehicles have been stolen lately, involves the usual; to drink coffee at strip tease bars, rescue kidnapped virgins from drowning and lose their jobs.

The spot where Joe parks his blue Ford police car in the beginning of the movie, is the 200 block of N. Spring Street. It is the West entrance to Los Angeles city hall. The exact spot where he parked is now a bus stop as of 2015. The street is one way south except for a north bound bus only lane. See more »
After the shoot-out at the Caesar mansion, as Pep and Friday drive away a marble statue can be seen with very neat bullet holes through it. Due to the structure of marble (or any stone), bullets would not simply punch a smooth-edged hole in it, they would break chunks off.

I'm well aware of the federally mandated speed limit, Streebeck. But, did it ever occur to you that, by going eight miles an hour slower, we might save some gasoline and ease the burden on the poor taxpayers out there who pay our salaries?
Friday, a little extra gas isn't gonna put the city in hock; besides, this looks bad! Come on, live a ...

dragnet is by no means a great film. but it is a funny, goofy light hearted film that both actors play well. i thought it was unusual to see christopher plummer in such a movie but he was good as the founder of "mama". this wont go down as the best film of either tom hanks or dan akroyd.dan has the jack webb impersonation down well though. it still is entertaining and if you want a decent laugh it's worth renting.
