One umpire ejected two others. A tiger mauled a base runner sliding into second base. An outfielder tried to assassinate Queen Elizabeth. The scene featured the Angels versus the Seattle Mariners in a showdown that would decide the lead in the American League West. Never mind that the game was played inside Dodger Stadium, with a Los Angeles police detective serving as an undercover umpire after having bungled the national anthem while posing as a renowned opera singer. Frank Drebin, crooned after having karate-chopped tenor Enrico Pallazzo into submission in order to steal his tuxedo. The hijinks have developed more than a cult following in the 30 years since the film was released. In , SI listed the scene as its favorite from a non-sports movie. The scene centers on the earnest but blundering Drebin, who finagles his way onto the field while attempting to foil the assassination of the queen. The first pitch triggers a long, awkward pause, both the batter and catcher staring incredulously at Drebin before he offers his verdict.

Protecting the safety of the Queen is a task that is gladly accepted by Police Squad. For no matter how silly the idea of having a queen might be to us, as Americans we must be gracious and considerate hosts. The crowd applauds, camara pans to Mayor's a gasped expression as she takes over the podium from Lt. Of course this is followed by the sounds of Lt Drebin's "long pee" scene audio drowning out the Mayor's continued speech when he forgets to remove his wireless microphone while relieving himself in the men's room.

Of course, it only gets worse for the Mayor as Lt Drebin completes his potty break soliloquy with a cascading audio of a few short squirts, and lyrical humming. Lt Drebin completes his audible peeing soliloquy finale by breaking wind and a self satisfying "Aaaaaaah" broadcast to the entire press conference. However, for me, The Naked Gun is the best of the lot and is one of the funniest films ever made.

I was a huge fan of the TV series Police Squad. Unfortunately, ABC did not really give the series a chance and axed it after one year.

One of the series' original gimmicks was to have a "guest star" who was killed off during the opening credits Florence Henderson was machine-gunned, William Shatner was poisoned, Lorne Greene was thrown out of a speeding car, etc. Unfortunately, one of the "guest stars" was John Belushi, who died before the episode could be aired. The producers had to pull the episode as a result.

This was the final blow for the series which was canceled soon after. The series Sledge Hammer feebly tried to cover the same ground, but paled in comparison to Police Squad. That's why I was overjoyed when the movie came out in and was even funnier than the original series.

Leslie Nielsen, who was a serious dramatic actor until Airplane! Without trying to be funny, Nielsen gets laughs by playing it absolutely straight -- even when he's wearing a body length condom, passing out by smelling 3 year old Chinese food or singing a horrible version of the National Anthem at a baseball game.

Simpson when he could show his face in public , Reggie Jackson and Ricardo Montalban have mastered the art of delivering funny lines with absolute seriousness. It would take too long to recount all of my favorite scenes. My personal favorite is the baseball scene. If you're a baseball fan, you've probably seen a person singing the National Anthem botch the lyrics or seen an umpire who seemed to get a little too much pleasure in ringing up strike three on a hitter.

The first time I saw the film, I was laughing so hard, tears were coming out of my eyes and I couldn't breathe during that scene! Apparently, the audience I saw it with agreed because their laughter drowned out a good deal of dialogue. Nielsen's umpiring still makes me laugh, especially when it's shown between innings at a baseball stadium.

So many directors, when they provide audio commentary for one of their films on DVD, act so pompous and self-important you would think they had done something noble for mankind rather than just direct a movie. Zucker, however, has a great self-deprecating style that fits the film perfectly. It's quite clear that he has as much fun making these films as we have watching them. The Funniest Movie Ever Made Leslie Nielsen singing the National Anthem as an Italian Opera star, Enrico Palozzo is still not fair as it is one of those laugh so hard your kidneys start hurting moments.

Some people may argue that "Airplane" deserves the title of the funniest movie of all time as it set the footsteps for all slapstick movies that would come after. Those people, however, are morons and most of them are not able to even vote because they had sex with farm animals In all seriousness, all the movies I mentioned above are funny.

Obviously, different people have different tastes so finding that one movie that the most amount of people will laugh at during a sitting is the task. That task is won by "The Naked Gun" hands down.

If one sits down and watches "The Naked Gun", you will laugh, no doubt, and walk away knowing that you watched a damn funny movie. The same joke you snickered at while watching alone become a snort-amd-a-half. This continues and you find yourself laughing so hard you find that you cannot stop. You are laughing so hard that pretty soon tears will come streaming down your face, off your cheek and onto your shirt.

The jokes are the same. OJ Simpson getting the snot beat out of him still rings that "he-deserved-worse" bell. I had it stuffed yesterday" prevents me from breathing because like a gun coming out of gun, there is no time to prepare to move.

You gotta simply hope the aim is off. Trust me, if you are watching "The Naked Gun" with a group of people looking to have a good time, the aim is true. Anyone with a funny bone in his body will probably find it amusing. I'm sure most people recognize there's a built-in audience hierarchy that artists, writers, and filmmakers keep in mind when they produce their entertainments.

At the top of the pile is usually the poem, potentially the most complex structure of all. Next comes the novel, which calls upon a reader's ability to observe and reason.

Then the stage play, followed by the movie. At the bottom of the ladder is the TV show, for which producers think viewers so witless they have to use laugh tracks to let them know where the jokes are. However, satire, and its sub category of parody, demands a degree of sophistication from its viewers, or at least a degree of awareness, and television obviously didn't provide it.

So the first of the "Naked Gun" movies appeared in which we get here, spruced up in high-definition Blu-ray and, whammo, instant success with a slightly more-hip audience. The sequels didn't match the original in terms of laughs-per-minute, but they maintained the same level of zaniness, wringing the last ounce of humor from the format. No complaints about the original, though, and it could hardly lose with Jerry and David Zucker, Jim Abrahams, and Pat Proft as the filmmakers. They're the team that brought us "Airplane! He is, without a doubt, the world's dumbest policeman, on a par for klutziness with the immortal Inspector Clouseau.

It wasn't always thus for Nielsen, though. He is one of the few actors in Hollywood to have metamorphosed into comedic preeminence. His career began long before his doing comedy, as a leading man in films like "Forbidden Planet" , "Tammy and the Bachelor" , "Dark Intruder" , and "Beau Geste" Then there was a long period of supporting roles, followed by his breakthrough into funny business with "Airplane!

But it wouldn't be until the "Naked Gun" series that he came into his own as one of America's best-known comic actors. Who would have guessed until he tried. Maybe it was Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers who first saw Nielsen's possibilities; after all, it was they who put a whole slew of former movie tough guys into their wacky pictures and made them play the comedy straight. They were all great, but it was Nielsen who went on to comedic glory. Simpson, and Ricardo Montalban also come off as pretty funny guys. I suppose it's a gift.

Getting back to the story, the movie starts with Drebin in Beirut, where he thwarts an international terrorist plot against the U. Returning to the States a hero, he's greeted by his long-suffering partner and straight man, Capt.

Ed Hocken, played with wonderfully deliberate, deadpan drollness by Kennedy. There, Drebin immediately gets involved investigating a drug-smuggling ring led by millionaire shipping-tycoon Vincent Ludwig Montalban.

Meanwhile, another of Drebin's colleagues in crime-fighting, the equally inept Nordberg Simpson , gets himself subjected to endless physical abuse at the hands of the bad guys you may be cheering for this today , winding up in the hospital where he remains for the rest of the picture continuing to endure Drebin's mistreatment Drebin manages successfully to rebreak both of Nordberg's arms. Then Drebin meets the love of his life, or at least the love of his next few movies, Jane Spencer, played by Priscilla Presley with an appropriately empty-headed serenity and a clumsiness to match Drebin's own.

They're a perfect pair. Together, they are also too much for the villains, who turn out to be more than just drug smugglers but killers planning to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II. The story winds up at a professional baseball game where the Queen is to make an appearance. The villains intend to shoot her during the seventh-inning stretch by using a person under sensory-induced hypnosis.

Nielsen's sidesplitting singing of the national anthem at home plate is worth the price of the whole picture. In the sequels to "The Naked Gun" the filmmakers never quite captured the spirit of the original, perhaps because they recycled so many of the gags, so it's nice to have the original on hand in high def, even if the studio hasn't added anything new to the package.

The opening gambit during the credits, for instance, involving a police car seen from the driver's perspective motoring through highways, byways, buildings, living rooms, bath stalls, etc. We see echoes of "Airplane! Indeed, the whole movie plays out like one of those old Jack Davis cartoons so crammed full of business you have to look closely at everything in the background to get all the jokes. Timeworn police stories, and many new ones, may not be the same to you after watching "The Naked Gun.

Joyce Brothers? Wonderful stuff. The image quality is good in this 1. When the hues are on, they're as rich and deep as any you'll find in any HD transfer. Definition varies from very sharp to slightly soft, more than acceptable most of the time. There is a degree of natural film grain in larger patches of color, especially evident in nighttime shots, but that's something we should expect.

However, you have to understand that the film predates the widespread use of surround sound in movie theaters, and compared to most of today's soundtracks the remix doesn't have much in the way of rear or side-channel activity.

The remixed sound features a broad front-channel stereo spread, while the surrounds fill in mainly a light, pleasant musical bloom. Overall, while the audio is fine, the dynamics are not too robust, and the frequency extremes still appear limited. Extras: We get the same primary bonus item on the Blu-ray disc that we got on the previous DVD edition.
