Unfairly considered as pap due to its 'National Lampoon's' origins, Loaded Weapon hits the spot like no other spoof. The film impeccably manages to make a fool of the over-gloss and cheesiness of Leathal Weapon and buddy cop movies in general. Much of the success of the film is down to the straight-faced turn of Emilio Estevez, avoiding the self-consciousness which makes so many spoofs fail. Samuel L. Jackson shows of his comic talents pre-stardom as he plays his Danny Glover character to hilarious perfection. The authentic 80's soundtrack gives the required feel of the tackiness of the Lethal Weapon movies, while the cast pull off the daft jokes without any need for blatant face-pulling. In fact the cast is so well known (Estevez, Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Curry, William Shatner, Bruce Willis, Denise Richards) that even the weakest jokes pass by without so much as a groan. Loaded Weapon is a brilliantly observed spoof first, and an exceptional jokes vehicle second, where the daft jokes hit the mark rather than seem like a cheap attempt to amuse the viewer. There are so many priceless moments packed into the tight running time and such flawless spoof performances that it is a shame that this film has been dusted under the carpet along with so many poor 'National Lampoon's' movies. Loaded Weapon is an unexpected spoof treasure.

It starts off great and the first time you see it, it will make you roll on the floor laughing, but it isn't consistent and it does drag on alot and the gags don't get any more sophisticated than slapstick, which is a shame, they could have done alittle more later on, but worth a place in a comedy collection.

The problem when A Film like Airplane or Naked Gun comes along is that everyone jumps on the band Wagon and you end up saturated in Comedies that stop being clever with their surreal humour and just become Silly For the sake of it in the hope that some of it sticks.Loaded Weapon thankfully veers more toward the Funny/Clever side of things.Sadly though like most of these films it has it's slow moments where nothing seems to work,but with A Great cast and More Hits with the jokes than misses it all turns out to be an Enjoyable 90 minutes.

Much like Hot Shots! one and deux, The film basically parodies Lethal Weapons one and two, and throws in spoofs of other successful movies during this era.

The plot is about a microfilm that has instructions of how to hide drugs in innocent looking cookies, and two cops have to recover it.

What is good about this movie, is that it was one of the last genuinely funny spoofs ever made, and after Part Deux and and a third, they became obsolete.

The film isn't really laugh out loud funny, and some of the jokes are more miss than hit, but it's wonderful to see so many good cameos put to even better use (the Bruce Willis one is priceless).

The only bad thing about this film, is that it's dated, due to the nature of it's topics. Many now wouldn't get the Silence Of the Lambs, or Basic Instinct references, even though they are blatantly obvious.

The reason why many wouldn't get them now, is because the scenes that are parodied here, were so overplayed in the early nineties, that they were almost begging to be spoofed.

All in all, if you are a fan of the action genre, you will get something from this, even though it's pretty throwaway stuff.

Maybe Last Action Hero would have been more successful if this had not been made.

National Lampoon films do seem to have been slipping here and there, and with comedy classics like National Lampoons European Vacation on there past prodjects it seemed they might well drift into obscurity. This film firmly establishes the talent of writers making hilarious fun of Lethal Weapon and silence of the Lambs. Lines such as "Quid Pro quo", "What does that mean?", "I'm pretentious" I found hilarious. Anyone whose had to endure the tedium of watching Cop films in which the seemingly never wrong formula of black cop meets white cop will find themselves laughing till there sides burst. A couple of redundant jokes litter this otherwhise hilarious film however in genral its one of the most amusing parody's I've ever seen, more like this please!

Drugs are being made into cookies and its up to Colt and Luger to save the day.....

Fantastically ridiculous film that does not take itself seriously and is non stop full of jokes from start to finish, Emilio Estevez and Samuel L Jackson who play the spoof lethal weapon's Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are superb together in this film, a lot of the jokes are great and fans of intentional poor continuity and play on words will be thrilled.

Cameos and funny versions of scenes from: Silence of the Lambs & Basic Instinct are there.

Features appearances by Whoopii Goldberg, Bruce Willis, Tim Curry, Charlie Sheen and William Shatner.

I also recommend Amazon Women on the moon, for those who like this style of comedy.

Emilio Estevez & Samuel L Jackson take the lead roles in this send up of the Lethal Weapon films.
I bought this at a budget price and it was was well worth investing in as there are some very good parodies of films such as "Basic instinct" and good cameos particularly by Bruce Willis.
William Shatner ably supported by "Henchman" Tim Curry supply the menace and a very memorable gag about "Worst nightmare"!!
Kathy Ireland supplies the "Love" interest and if you like National Lapoon films this one is definately worth adding to the collection.
The film runs for 70 minutes but only rarely flags as there are plenty of gags and visual effects to keep the attention.
