THE NAKED GUN: FROM THE FILES OF POLICE SQUAD!
1988, Paramount, 85 min, Dir: David Zucker

Leslie Nielsen is sheer comic perfection as Frank Drebin, a detective as confident as he is incompetent. In his attempts to save the Queen of England from an assassination plot, he inadvertently wreaks havoc all over Los Angeles.


AIRPLANE!

After an airplane’s crew becomes ill in flight, the survival of everyone on board depends on former Navy pilot Ted Stryker (Robert Hays). Will he be able to safely land the plane? The quintessential movie spoof that spawned an entire genre of parody films, the original still holds up as one of the brightest comedic gems of the 1980s.
