Lasted The Test Of Time
14 May 2012 | by BudrussSee all my reviews

OK, just to get this out of the way: I've always loved this movie. I actually saw it before I saw the "Lethal Weapon" series (Though I was familiar with them) and loved it even more once I had.

The thing that makes this movie funny, even today, is that even though it has a lot of topical humor from the early 1990s it's mostly made up of self-sustaining jokes that last. Not everyone is going to know who Leona Helmsley is, but everyone is going to laugh at Tim Curry in a wig.

And then there are the myriad of cameos by stars who know how play it straight but don't necessarily take it too seriously. From the delightful appearance of Samuel L. Jackson as Wes Luger to the walk- through of Emilio Estevez's brother and Cory Feldman it's a non-stop parade of talent that knew what kind of movie they were playing in. (Not to mention it almost brought a tear to my eye to see Phil Hartman doing what he does)

Even if you're not a fan of the "Lethal Weapon" movies you're going to find this movie funny. It fires off about 30 jokes a minute, about 20 you're going to laugh at. If you are a fan of the "Lethal Weapon" you'll probably laugh at about 29.

Watch it with friends, you won't regret it.
