A re-run of many of the gags from the original TV series 'Police Squad'. An Airplane type spoof, this time with the an incompetent lieutenant (Drebin) who always 'gets his man'. Visual gags come thick and fast, and it's impossible to catch them all with one viewing. 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

Did You Know?
This movie is a big-screen version of the cult cop spoof series Police Squad!
(1982). The title was changed to avoid confusion with the Police Academy series of films, which were also co-created by Pat Proft
. David Zucker
remembers that they were given a list of about 20 potential titles, and they chose 'The Naked Gun' because it 'promised so much more than it could possibly deliver'. See more
In the airport, we see a DC-10 (in United Airlines colors) landing, but when Drebin is deplaning, he's getting off a Lockheed L-1011 (in TWA colors). See more
It's true what they say: Cops and women don't mix. It's like eating a spoonful of Drano; sure, it'll clean you out, but it'll leave you hollow inside.
Near the ending : Special Thanks to : Tripoli Rocketry Association (ref to the scene in which the car with the villain in it crashes into a mobile scud launcher before crashing into a fireworks store) (However, this may be a legitimate thanks for the use of the name, because the Association exists.)
