Wes Luger: So what're we looking at here, Doc?
Coroner: The worst-dressed stiff I've ever seen.
Wes Luger: This "stiff" and I pounded a beat together for five years. So show some respect, Doc.
Coroner: I'm sorry, Wes. You know, I see so much of this senseless mayhem that sometimes I get a little insensitive.
Wes Luger: [nods with understanding]

Better than people give credit for...
6 November 2003 | by TheAverageAtBestHulkSee all my reviews

This isn't Airplane!, The Man With Two Brains, , or any number of classic slapsticks, but it is up there, and it is funny. While it has its slow times, it still manages to make you laugh. Great one liners, and wonderful acting make it a solid and worthy buy. Everytime you watch it, you will find yet another smart-ass, sarcastic reply, an offbeat joke or an obscure parody. Loaded Weapon 1 hits and for 90% of the time doesn't miss. It honestly doesn't get enough credit.
