Dick Steele, Agent WD-40 is assigned by his Director, to stop the evil General Rancor from destroying the world. WD-40 believed Rancor was dead and he teams up with the hot K.G.B. Agent Veronique Ukrinsky to find Rancor and save the world.
A rerun of many of the gags from the television series Police Squad! (1982). An Airplane! (1980)-type spoof, this time with the an incompetent Lieutenant Frank Drebin, who always "gets his man". Visual gags come thick and fast, and it's impossible to catch them all with one viewing. The plot: Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Vincent Ludwig has plans to assassinate her using a brainwashed baseball player.Written by
When Frank first meets Jane, his narration is a parody of Phillip Marlowe in Farewell, My Lovely (1975) and a visual parody as well. Jane wears a red dress, walks down a staircase, and her hair is the "color of gold in old paintings". See more »
When Frank hits the trash cans in front of the police station, the airbags deploy and the second "airbag" pushes the gear selector up, causing the car to roll down the hill. In a car with an automatic transmission, the selector must be moved down to take the car out of 'park'. See more »
[Frank Drebin walks through town]
The attempt on Nordberg's life left me shaken and disturbed, and all the questions kept coming up over and over again, like bubbles in a case of club soda. Who was this character in the hospital?

Why was the 'I Luv You' not listed in Ludwig's records? And if it was, did he know about it? And if he didn't...

Near the ending : Special Thanks to : Tripoli Rocketry Association (ref to the scene in which the car with the villain in it crashes into a mobile scud launcher before crashing into a fireworks store) (However, this may be a legitimate thanks for the use of the name, because the Association exists.)

Drebin's walking monologue (ending with "And where the Hell was I?") has many new scenes, such as Drebin going into a public shower, and extra dialogue to fill the time. See more »
I recently bought the boxed set, (all 3 films) and really enjoyed watching them again. I have to admit though, I did not quite laugh as much as I did when I first watched them.
I remembering watching them the first time and thinking "What the hell am I watching? This is MAD! hahaha lol. All the bits like Frank hitting stuff with his car every time he parks and the bit with Nordberg at the start - classic!
Really good light-hearted fun...
