"They're always looking for the big bust"
22 June 2010 | by Chase_WitherspoonSee all my reviews

Chronically underrated police spoof with likable Perpich as a modest uniformed cop labouring thanklessly with his ragtag colleagues, including zany captain Adam West and bumbling sub-continent exchange Vijay Amritraj (former pro tennis player) as they take on a drug smuggling ring. Wings Hauser does a fair comedic turn (not his usual style) as an uber-cool sheriff's deputy always trying to outsmart the regular cops, with predictable results.

Plenty of slapstick, situational humour and bawdiness buffer the general lack of substance in the storyline, while a plethora of crazy characters maintains the momentum in spite of the shaky narrative. Ducommun (in John Candy mould) and his laughing dummy (often ejected from a motorcycle sidecar as a running joke) set the tone early and most of the characters are quickly established by their own quirky brand (e.g. the Elvis impersonator, the randy archives clerk, the bodybuilding police woman etc, etc).

Soap opera fans will no doubt recognise a lusty Katherine Kelly Lang as the centrefold-cum-roller-skate waitress in the first scene, and even veteran actor Keenan Wynn appears briefly as an ageing cop with hemorrhoids. Nothing too sophisticated, just a series of lightweight gags and bozo characterisations by a relatively distinguished cast; the only disappointment here is that "The Last Precinct" remains so obscure. If you can locate a copy, check it out - maybe not a keeper, but good for a few laughs.
