Trivia

Film debut of Denise Richards. She plays one of Denis Leary's four girlfriends in the scene where he's playing the piano. Charlie Sheen, who had a cameo as the valet attendant as a favor to his brother Emilio Estevez, would marry Richards about ten years after this film was made and they would divorce soon after.

Goofs

Luger refers to "whomever's in charge"; not only is it wrong (it should be "whoever") but just a few minutes earlier he was being a strict grammarian with another character. See more »

Stupid, yet funny
5 October 2004 | by (Norberg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

As several others have pointed out - this is not a very good film. However, it's still pretty darn funny. It's a B-version spoof film, but I still laughed more than on average.

When you don't have terribly gifted writers and/or actors you have to rely on throwing in as many jokes as possible in order to try and get more laughs. And a surprising amount of them are actually very funny (albeit extremely silly, and stupid).

Favourite bit: when Estevez and Jackson are driving in their car and suddenly realize they're being followed - by two guys wearing ski masks, sitting in the backseat of the car.

If you know what you're getting yourself into, Loaded Weapon is an underrated little gem. If nothing else, it's fun to see Sam L. Jackson before he became a "serious" actor. [7/10]
