Not quite up to Airplane! or Top Secret!, but there are still laughs aplenty.
-Jonathan RosenbaumFull Review
The Naked Gun is crass, broad, irreverent, wacky fun -- and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end.
-Variety StaffFull Review
High spirits may be all that a film like this really needs.
-Janet MaslinFull Review
The film is as transparent as a third-grader with a water gun, and yet I would rather review a new film by Ingmar Bergman, for there, at least, would be themes to discuss and visual strategies to analyze.
-Roger EbertFull Review
The Naked Gun is still very funny more than 20 years later. Leslie Nielsen is awesome, and the gags are more hit than miss.
-R. L. ShafferFull Review
It would have been nothing without Leslie Nielsen, but this was one of the funniest slapstick comedies of the 1980s.
-Wesley LovellFull Review
Bawdy, dumb-humor classic spoofs '80s cop dramas.
-Heather BoernerFull Review
...still a hilarious movie, and anyone with a funny bone in his body will probably find it amusing.
-John J. PuccioFull Review
Nielsen in particular is superb, cracking his facade for only the biggest of jokes.
-Jeffrey M. AndersonFull Review
The Naked Gun is a continuous stream of verbal and visual gags that come so fast, you don't have time to realize how bad/old/corny they are.
The endlessly tasteless juvenilia should make you ashamed of laughing yourself into a stupor.
-Geoff AndrewFull Review
A comedy classic.
Nielsen perfectly embodies Drebin with the kind of deadpan seriousness that's essential to making well-written one-liners and situations seem ten times as funny.
-Erik ChildressFull Review
One of the greatest comedies ever made. The laughs don't stop.
Hi-larious. Shame about the sequels.
-Luke Y. Thompson
The jokes fly fast and furious, mostly holding up decades later.
A film like this is all about the comedy. The story is just an excuse to try and make you laugh the loudest they can. And it works!
-Kevin N. LaforestFull Review
Always hysterical, no matter how much you watch it!
Despite all the outrageous comedy and raunchy bathroom jokes, [the Zuckers] create endearing characters that are likable.
