This has to be one of the best cop comedies ever, including the many new ones. Dan Aykroyd plays the cop who follows the rules whilst Tom Hanks is the cop who breaks the rules but gets things done. It is a brilliant comedy and which has both Aykroyd and Hanks at their comic best. It may be a cliche but they don't make films like this any more, it has comedy similar to that of most of Aykroyd and Hank's early stuff like the Ghost Busters and Big. The DVD very short of extras, besides the usual scene selection and menu, it only actually has - Production Notes, Filmographies, Trailer, and Web Link, but the film itself is well worth having in your collection if you are a fan of either actor or comedy in general.

2 cops - one straight laced, the other a lout - are called in to bring down a new terror: P.A.G.A.N, a religious nutcase organisation threatening to take over. Cue some of the best comedy you will ever see - Dan Akroyd is superb and Tom Hanks is at his funniest (you know, the time before he started winning too many awards) All in all, a masterpiece that deserves to be in everyone's collection

Blues Brothers in another form. A young Tom Hanks works with Dan Ackroyd in this fun comedy about two policeman who couldn't be more opposite in their behaviours that have to work together. Just a laugh a minute.

From the moment the opening titles kick in with the catchy Art of Noise Dragnet Theme in full remix you know you are in 80s movie heaven. I personally only get the same feeling everytime I watch Beverley Hills Cop and with both films you can keep going back time after time after time.
The comic genious of the two lead actors at the time makes for really good viewing and their work relationship will be familiar to many of us.
Buy this and you wont be disappointed.

"Pseudo-halogenic compound cyanogen. Uh-huh."

There seems to be some sort of misunderstanding of the nature of 1987's comedy hit Dragnet. It's NOT a spoof of the TV show like the indescribably awful Starsky and Hutch movie from 2004. Aykroyd and Hanks can sleep sound at night knowing that they've made a movie for the ages, and despite a couple of elements which place it firmly in the 80s there's not much to make you think it wasn't made in the 21st century, especially that brilliant theme tune by The Art of Noise. A soundtrack CD was released at the time, but a dedicated score CD has, to date, never been made available, which is a shame since it's brilliant.

Dan Aykroyd plays the nephew of Jack Webb's Joe Friday (also called Joe). He's just as humorless, unironic and logical. He goes into ludicrous detail about the most trivial of matters and has never, ever, ever considered breaking the rules to break a case. His partner Frank quits and his boss Captain Bill Gannon (Jack Webb's partner in the original TV show, once again played by Harry Morgan) pairs him up with dirty, unshaven young renegade Pep Streebeck (Tom Hanks). They're the classic mismatched pair and the chemistry between them is absolutely perfect.

They're assigned to the P.A.G.A.N. case and discover a ruthless cult taking control of the Los Angeles crime network. WAY out of their depth, and with only a single witness to identify the P.A.G.A.N. leader they move from one amusing set-piece to the next, rubbing off on each other, and losing many vehicles (and Friday's beloved hat).

Dragnet went straight to Number 1 at the box office when it was released in the summer of 1987 and I've loved it ever since I was a kid.

A comedy in several layers. A caricature of the old films, using a narrator offstage, dialogues with long lines, obliging the characters to a fast paced speaking, a constant rattling. A wonderful "detailed" script
Warning: Don't watch this film during the night and the windows open. I laughed like a jerk with the offstage narrator.

Classic Aykroyd and Hanks film a laugh out loud a minute. I would and have recommended this movie to friends who sadly did not get chance to see this in the 80's
