The Naked Gun (1988)



A certain cast member may make this film franchise unwatchable nowadays, but for those who can look past him, The Naked Gun shoots off laugh after laugh as Lt. Frank Drebin and his fellow buffoons try to thwart an assassination on the Queen of England.  It's favorable reviews, high quote factor and impressive box office showing ensured this would not be the last round fired.

  1. I assume the certain cast member you're referring to is OJ but I feel the opposite way. I think it's awesome that we're able to watch him get beat up non-stop in this film.

    1. Yeah, that's who I was referring to, but that's a good point, Jon.
