In the scene where the drug deal is taking place between William Shatner and his potential buyers, the lead dealer tells his assistant to "use the 'Vista' credit card, you get frequent flyer miles". This was an in-joke to the actual Visa credit card, which was actually offering this rewards program, as an incentive for people to charge their purchases on their credit cards, at the time.

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]
