Considering the TV series Police Squad managed a mere six episodes, it's no small testament to its qualities that it proved the inspiration for a trio of cinematic hits. And this bringing together of all three Naked Gun films delivers, as the original series did, a belly-load of laughs.

Each is a spoof, very much in the spirit of the original Airplane (unsurprising, as the same people are involved), with the focus this time being on Leslie Nielsen's Lt Frank Drebin, a well-meaning yet chaotic detective who, along with George Kennedy's Capt Ed Hocken, O.J.Simpson's Nordberg and Priscilla Presley's Jane finds himself with crimes to solve, and nothing but sheer ineptitude to help him.

The plot in each movie clearly takes a back seat, as each film is an exercise in throwing as many gags at the wall and hoping they stick. The hit rate in the first of the three is high enough to genuinely warrant it being a modern day comedy classic, with clever sight gags and more elaborate sequences keeping the chuckle count high and constant. Neither sequel gets close to it, but both do have their moments too. Crucially, as none of the films outstays its welcome, thanks to their relatively brief running times, each emerges as an enjoyable, joyfully silly and frequently funny comedy, set to be enjoyed time and time again.

brilliant price, although i already have this

this has been a fiver since the beginning of time

A Fiver Shirley Not?

Are bored, tired...Tired of hearing the same bad jokes, are you work mates not repecting you. Do you have a hair problem, do You feel that you are overworked under paid. Do you use Computers to much instead of going out to the pub to find the perfect mate. Do you like marmite....Do you miss series like Sledge Hammer, forgotten how to laugh after your wife forced you to watch DINNER LADIES (Victoria Wood...GRRR)

For only 5 pounds the late great funking , jive-**** blonde male bitch can make you laugh so hard your jaw will fall to pieces... Just give five pounds and restore the humour back to your life....

(If you wondering I not on drugs...I just havnt had a cup of tea for an hour, an englishman surivies on Tea, and the my wife gone to bed. Which means one thing...I dont have to make her cup. result...)
