Samuel L. Jackson,

This one has Lt. Frank Drebin (Leslie Nielsen) trying to stop villain Quentin Hapsburg (Robert Goulet) from kidnapping a solar power advocate. That's the plot, but the movie is of course an excuse for a series of gags, many of which just pop out from the sides. And of course there's Frank's relationship with seductive Jane Spencer (Priscilla Presley). One of their scenes might make you recall a certain scene from "Ghost", and then what follows...well, all that I can say is: HOW DO THEY COME UP WITH THESE THINGS?!!!!!!!!!!!!! I guess that the movie's only weird aspect is seeing O.J. Simpson as Nordberg. But if we can ignore that, the rest is a hoot, especially the opening sequence, the outlines of people's bodies, and the zoo scene. Just great.
