Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 is assigned by his director, to stop the evil General Rancor from destroying the world. WD-40 believed Rancor was dead and he teams up with the hot KGB agent Veronique Ukrinsky to find Rancor and save the world.
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
The conversation between Ludwig and Papschmear about "Sensory Induced Hypnosis" is a direct spoof of a scene in Telefon (1977), where Charles Bronson is offered a demonstration of "Drug Induced Hypnosis" See more »
At the ballpark, Ludwig drags Jane up the stairs which knocks popcorn out the hands of the only two fans who had popcorn. Instantly, when Frank follows up the same flight of stairs, six fans were holding popcorn which gets knocked out too by Frank ascending the steps. See more »

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.J.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.
