National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1

"Crap. Hooey."
1 stars

Do you sleep in the nude?

Parodying the Lethal Weapon movies seems a bit redundant, doesn't it?

Oh well.

Either way, it's not really all that funny. Some occasionally funny moments (and believe me, those are fleeting) surrounded by 90 minutes of crap. It's no shock seeing Emilio Estevez, Jon Lovitz or William Shatner in a movie like this, but Samuel L. Jackson? Come on.

The parody genre is on it's last legs, especially here, where the best bits come from spoofing Wayne's World and Silence Of The Lambs.

On the whole, though, a big honkin' waste of time.

Only when I'm naked.
