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 Drebin attends the baseball game, he goes to the toilet and meets a fat male and slapped him, was a reference to a Monty Python sketch where an obese male ate so much that he exploded. The obese male is wearing the exact same clothing and hairstyle like in the Monty Python sketch. See more »
When Frank is pretending to be the home plate umpire, the first pitch is thrown. The catcher catches it, and everyone stops and looks at him for his call. In reality, if the home plate umpire makes no call and says nothing, it's a ball. See more »
Yeah, I'm Drebin!
I have a message for ya from Vincent Ludwig!
[fires his gun at Frank]
Take that, you lousy cop!
I'm sorry! I can't hear ya! Don't fire the gun while you're talking!

The baseball game has a few modifications: originally we saw the Queen passing food from a vender, now we see her also passing the money to pay for it; during the montage of baseball's funniest moments, there is a new shot of a family having a picnic in the outfield; and during a conference on the pitcher's mound, they discuss financial matters and not baseball.

ZAZ's(David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker) The Naked Gun is one of the funniest (if not funniest) film ever with more parodies and gags than one could ever imagine. And the writing is if not good, great that never lets up (even through the finale baseball game with Reggie Jackson).
But what really gets this film up there is it's main characters. Leslie Nielson has never been better and probably won;t ever be this good ever again. He brings an insane type of humor from a cop that hasn't been seen since Clouseau. The supporting characters are good also, including Priscilla Pressley, George Kennedy, Ricardo Montebaum, Nancy Marchand and (odd to see him in a movie today) OJ Simpson. There zany characters and added with a great script make this a treasure in cinema comedy. One of the best films of the 80's. A++
