One review

  • I have seen many movies, and many comedies. But this is still one of the greatest comedies of them all.

    It contains that kind of humor that I love. It’s a classic.

    Leslie Nielsen delivers a great performance as the cop Frank Drebin. The cop who always solves the crimes. Not with intelligence, but with his foolishness and stupidity.

    And because of his reputation as the “stupid cop” no one believes him when he finds out that a man named Vincent Ludwig tries to assassinate Queen Elizabeth. He is sure in his case, and will not rest before Ludwig is arrested. But cops needs something to put people in jail. Envidences! So Frank need to prove that Ludwig is a bad guy, and it results in many funny situations.

    The movie is so old, but it’s still a great movie, everyone should watch!
