Your pants will be dancing with figs!!!
10 February 1999 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Released in the same season as Last Action Hero (another under-rated spoof of dumb action movies) and sharing a few cast members with it too, Loaded Weapon is more light-hearted stab at those horrible 'buddy-buddy'/'loose cannon partnered with old guy days from retirement' movies that were in unholy abundance around the late 80s and early 90s. Lethal Weapon (a film that has really not dated well at all) is to blame for the sudden popularity of this sub-genre and it's at this particular series that Loaded Weapon takes most of it's well deserved stabs.

Emilio Estevez is Jack Colt, a gun-happy cop on the edge who has been walking a thin line between sanity and alcohol-fuelled psycho since his dog ran away. Samuel L. Jackson is Wes Luger, a Detective with only a few days before he retires. His former partner Billy York (Whoopie Goldberg) is killed and he demands to take the case even though his superiors think it was suicide.

And so Colt and Luger get involved in a remarkably silly plot with cocaine disguised girl scout cookies. The evil General Murturs (William Shatner thoroughly enjoying himself) and his henchman Mr. Jigsaw (Tim Curry) plan to lure Colt and Luger into a trap before they foil his next major drug deal.

There are loads of cameos and even more in-jokes than you can shake a stick at. What makes Loaded Weapon better than most other heartless spoofs is that every line of dialogue is delivered perfectly and every scene has it's own special moment (if not more than one). From the hilarious opening in the mini-mart to pretty much any scene with Jon Lovitz (spoofing that horrible Joe Pesci character) there is loads to enjoy. Every aspect and cliché of this unfortunate sub-genre is exploited and made fun of, even the musical score plays a vital part in the humor of some scenes.

Some of the most quotable lines of dialogue include:

'Half today. Half tomorrow. Half on delivery.'

'I'm Detective Luger, this is Detective Colt. These are our wallets.'

'You came!'-'That's personal!'

'Ooware eez tha meecro-feelm?'

'Don't thank me. I'm just a cop doing his job.'

'I'm your worst nightmare.'-'No waking up without my penis is my worst nightmare.'

And of course...

'CIGARETTE!!!'

Unfortunately a decent knowledge of the Lethal Weapon films is required to get most of the jokes in this film but it's so funny that it's worth suffering through them first. It's a shame that they never made a sequel but never say never eh?
