The Naked Gun on rewatch was such a good time. The whole romance plot line is silly and cheesy but the rest of the movie is firing on all cylinders. Besides those 10 minutes spent on romance, it is a joke every minute. There are very few times that I’m not laughing while watching this movie. All the jokes are low hanging fruit but it’s done in a clever way so it gets away with slapstick. It’s just setup to punchline almost every minute of this movie. Also, Leslie Neilson gives a great and likable performance as Frank Drebin. He is a lead character that you want to win and his comedy is on point especially in the last 25 minutes. The Naked Gun has some flaws for sure but this is one of the great comedies of all time. It uses easy and clever jokes to entertain and it never overstays its welcome. Highly recommend you check this out on Netflix this week.
