Joe Friday quotes the dress code to Pep at the beginning of the film pretty accurately. Section 3/605, paragraph .10 covers the need for a neat, professional appearance. Paragraphs .20 through .26 cover hair. Paragraph .50 allows normal civilian clothing if appropriate to the assignment. Paragraph .70 refers to ornamentation, such as rings. Paragraph .80, which covers appropriate attire for court, is the only one that mentions the specific items of clothing Friday quotes. See more »

Towards the end of the film, when Streebeck arrests Muzz, he raps him his rights. In the closing credits there is an extended version of this, with Friday and Streebeck rapping about rights, as well as about the PAGAN ritual they witnessed. See more »
In the network TV version two scenes that involve a character reaching for a package of cigarettes have been edited; these include Friday reaching for a pack on his desk, which has been edited with a freeze-frame of the photo of his uncle (original Joe Friday played by Jack Webb) next it, and Emil Muzz reaching for a pack in his interrogation process, which is completely cut.

dragnet is by no means a great film. but it is a funny, goofy light hearted film that both actors play well. i thought it was unusual to see christopher plummer in such a movie but he was good as the founder of "mama". this wont go down as the best film of either tom hanks or dan akroyd.dan has the jack webb impersonation down well though. it still is entertaining and if you want a decent laugh it's worth renting.
