Goofs

During the raid on the drug facility/milk processing plant, the liquid that spews from the pipes and drums turns out to be milk. However, it is obviously not milk, not even skim, as milk would be a more solid color of white, as opposed to the nearly transparently white colored water that we see. See more »

Quotes

Friday: Not that it's any of your business, she's my maternal grandmother, her name is Mundy.

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.
