  • Of course it was funny !
    Emilio Estevez is almost as funny as his brother Charlie was in the "Hot Shots" series. Forget about SPOILERS! Who cares? Two of the funniest scenes for me was the interrogation of Miss Destiny Demeanor (Kathy Ireland) of the Sharon Stone - Basic Instinct parody. In which she continually crosses over her legs, while in a chair, with the attendant crowd of detectives sitting in "bleachers" waiting to catch a glimpse of her "you-know what." Finally, you see a beaver materialize in the style of a "Caddyshack Gopher."

    And then the shootout that York (Estevez) and Luger (Jackson) come upon while looking for a suspect; with the "Chips" guys, Ponch and John (who never pulled their guns out during the real show). The shootout is so loud and intense that Ponch has to shoot at John (narrowly missing him) just to get his attention.

    Too many sight gags to list, that'll bust you up. Funny, funny, movie with loads of cameo appearances.

  • Overdone
    The National Lampoon folkes missed the mark with this one. Most of the jokes fall flat, and the acting is terrible. I love the "Vacation" series, and do not know if this flop was due to bad writing or bad acting, or both. It takes a lot of effort to sit through the entire movie....more info
  • Heh, there's no Loaded Weapon 2
    I'm really tired of critics trashing this movie, going so far as to say it's National Lampoon's worst. Have you seen what NL has been releasing? A big fan of NL, I rented a few of their recent movies, and the closest I got to laughing was during Gold Diggers. Good Lord.
    Anyway, Loaded Weapon 1 (a joke in itself) uses the ZAZ approach (you know, the guys who did Airplane! and The Naked Gun), parodying buddy cop movies, mostly the Lethal Weapons. Emilio Estevez is Colt, a loose cannon who leaves a mini-mart in shambles at the start (the highlight, in my opinion) and is obviously supposed to be Mel Gibson. Samuel L. Jackson is Luger, a by-the-book family man (cough, Danny Glover) who's paired with Colt to nab a drug czar (William Shatner) who is smuggling drugs through Wilderness Girl cookies, which gets Luger's old partner (Whoopi Goldberg) killed. Oh yeah, and Colt falls for Kathy Ireland, a babe who should always leave her hair down. Other Lethal Weapon references include Jon Lovitz (YES!) as the Joe Pesci/Leo Getz character, who appears to be dead many times but keeps showing up, Denis Leary has a cameo as someone like Michael Hunksacker in the first Lethal Weapon, and there's other great references, like Colt finding Luger on the toilet (LW 2), Luger yelling "Cigarette!" instead of gun like in LW 1, Colt having a dead dog instead of a wife, and so on.
    This movie really is underappreciated. It mocks all the cop movies that are getting old with ease, and even though it's not up to par with Naked Gun or the other ZAZ tries (well, actually, "Mafia" and "Scary Movie 3" may conflict with that), it does what National Lampoon used to do: make us laugh....more info
  • VALIDATION
    Another hilarious spoof. Who knew Samuel Jackson could do comedy? Jackson and Estevez are great together. ...more info
  • Must-see action movie spoof
    Loaded Weapon 1 takes elements from many popular action/adventure movies and adds hilarious twists! A myriad of cameos appear including: Dennis Leary, Whoopi, Scotty (Star Trek), Phil Hartman, and Popeye. One of my all time favorites!...more info
  • Funny!
    Great Price!! It's also very Funny and Hillarious!! Can't stop laughing everytime I see it....more info
  • Good, but a bit of a let down
    This is a very funny spoof of not just Naked Gun and Lethal Weapon, but every other movie in the genre. There's so many, I've even noticed a few that I missed the first few times I watched it.

    I would have given it 4 stars, but the DVD is a let down for those who have seen the movie in theaters or on TV. Like too many others do when transfering to DVD, many scenes have been cut out. Often, these missing scenes are not missed, but with this movie, all of the parts are good ones and in some places, were essential to the movie making for some confusing lines later on.

    Still, I think this is a very funny parody of action movies and is worth the time....more info
  • great comic movie
    this is a great classic movie, it has a lot of comic scenes, and it makes me laugh a lot, i recommend it to anyone who wants to have a good time with his friends and see a good flick....more info
  • Not Bad...Not Bad at All
    Not the greatest movie I've ever seen...but Tim's performance saves it. Also, it has its funnier parts...though they're few and far between.
    I was overjoyed when Tim's character came back to life...I thought: Finally, a movie he's not going to die in!
    But then the damn directors made a liar out of me and killed my poor little Englishman...life's so unfair!
    But I digress, if you're into slapstick comedy rather than word of mouth comedy, I recommend this movie.
    You'll enjoy it, but I doubt you'll actually rent it a second time....more info
  • Absolutely Hilarious!! Wish They'd Make a Sequel!
    One of the best comedies of the '90's. Did not get the credit it deserved because there were a lot of these types of comedies out during the early '90's. This one stands out. Emilio Estevez is great as a psycho-cop, and Samuel Jackson steals the show with his dead-pan humor. William Shatner is delightfully evil, and Kathy Ireland is very nice window dressing. Get it now!! END...more info
  • Halarious

  • National lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1
    A real spoof of various movies. Some of the actors in this film are no longer with us,but it's nice to see them in this comedy/spoof. lots of cameos by some of the big name actors. Not a chick flick,unless you are into action movies. Not for the young children.
    Definately a "keeper" for your video library....more info
  • A Typical Lampoon Movie!
    Hilarious from start to finish, this movie lampoons pretty much any action movie which includes Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Basic Instinct, Silence of the Lambs, and even Wayne's World. It tells the story of detectives Colt and Luger two miss-matched detectives that come together to solve the murdering of Luger's old partener. Colt and Luger are played hilariously by Emilio Estevez (Colt) and Samuel L. Jackson (Luger). Other hilarious preformances come from the two villians, Tim Curry and William Shatner, also from Jon Lovitz. The cameos are countless. They include Whoppi Goldberg, Bruce Willis, Charlie Sheen, Phil Hartman, Corey Feldman, Paul Gleason, F Murray Abraham, and Erik Estrada. You will have to watch the movie more than once to catch all of the jokes and puns.The movie pretty much mocks Lethal Weapon, with the buddy-cop theme. My favorite Lampoon movie, this is one you don't want to miss!...more info
  • Five stars? What are you thinking?
    The first time I saw this movie I wasn't impressed. In fact, the only part that impressed me was "Tell me about the worst meal you've ever had."

    If you know the response to that you will understand why I won't tell you anything.

    Seriously, after many, many, many, um, drunken watchings of this movie I will tell you that this movie is one of the funniest stupid things I've ever seen. Movies like this were, and still are, a dime a dozen after the crazy success of THE NAKED GUN. So what? Answer me this: Why does "Life is very short and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friend" not count in a quote war?

    If you like gut-wrenching stupidity at its very best, this is the movie for you. If you don't, well what good are you?

    The rubicon has been crossed. Think about it....more info

  • IT WAS FUNNY
    TWO COPS [EMILIO ESTEVEZ AND SAMUEL L. JACKSON] TRY TO STOP THE DISTRIBUTION OF COCAINE LACED COOKIES. THIS MOVIE SPOOFS MOVIES LIKE ''LETHAL WEAPON'', ''FIRST BLOOD'', AND ''BASIC INSTINCT''. HAS ENOUGH FUNNY MOMENTS TO MAKE THIS AN OK COMEDY. HAS A STAR STUDDED CAST. AMONG THOSE STARS ARE; WHOOPI GOLDBERG, JON LOVITZ, WILLIAM SHATNER, F. MURRAY ABRAHAM, AND MANY MORE....more info

  • Great Comedy
    John in his reveiw here has just said exactly what i was going to say! So I dont need to review this myself, he's already done it for me, word for word!

    I will add however, if you happen to own this great comedy spoof/parody movie, you might be intrested to know there is a couple of eggs hidden on the DVD! If you go to the biographys and choose Samula L.Jacksons, as you flick through the pages, you will notice some of his movies have gold bars around them? You can select those bars, and click ok and watch the trailers to some of S.L.J's movies!

    My words on this movie that John didnt add. If your into comedy spoofs like "naked gun" "airplane" "kentucky freid movie" "spy hard" "hot shots" "silence of the hams" and movies of that type of goofy parodying, then you will love this movie! See Johns reveiw for what movies get parodied...more info

  • Emilio's finest work since The Mighty Ducks
    In a movie world that has recently been oversaturated by spoof movies National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 is always a breath of fresh air. Thankfully it's one of the few in the genre that's not produced by the Waynes brothers so it has some real laughs. Corny yes but it fits the time period so well. You know what to expect under the National Lampoons name. To us it's an old classic in the good youthful days of the 90's.

    The film takes stabs at quite a few classics from the 90's including Leathal Weapon, Silence of the Lambs, Basic Instinct, and Wayne's World. It's centered around a rogue cop named Jack Colt (Estevez) who teams up with Wes Luger (Samuel L Jackson)to bring down a girl scout cookie ring suspecting of lacing their product with cocaine. In order to bring down the Wilderness Girls cookie corporation a lot of cheap laughs must happen along with so many b cameos including Charlie Sheen, Tim Curry, William Shatner, Dennis Leary, Kathy Ireland (the ultimate redneck dream woman), and that ain't no sock in my crotch John Lovitz.

    Just a lot of laughs courtesy of a fine b comedy. If you haven't seen this one yet then we must suggest that you do it now, do it now. They intended to make a sequel to the film shortly after it's production. They signed on the cast and even had promotion posters made up, but due to lack of sales they never followed through. Makes us ponder what may have been. Imagine if they never made a Wayne's World 2? To Sid the 2nd installment was far superior, but it may not have worked for Loaded Weapon. I guess we will never know. Well that is unless we decided to start writting the script which we may do at some point. We'll put it on the list behind Death Ring 2: Blackwell's Revenge....more info
  • I fell asleep
    Emilio Estevez is a riot but even he couldn't save this film. Though it had a couple of funny gags, the rest of the spoof just felt silly in an unfunny way and mostly on the boring side. Sam Jackson was hit or miss in this, and all I have to ask is, what ever happend with the whole microfilm thing?? All in all, just plain weird and not so funny. ...more info
  • Very funny
    If you like this type of comedy where jokes are as visual as they are vocal (play on words, taking things litterally, and so on), then this is for you.
    There aren't many movies like this nowadays...
    I recommend you watch it before sleeping... that's a much better way to end your day (and start your night) than watching news about tragedies, war and so on... Enjoy!

  • Collect cop cliches, mix. Hilarity ensues.
    Lampooning everything from Lethal Weapon, to Die Hard, to Basic Instinct, this movie puts together all the cop-action movie cliches you've ever seen, throws them in a blender, and shoots them at you with a liberal dose of humor....more info
  • Awesome Spoof

  • One of my favorite spoofs. Incredibly underrated!
    I'm not a huge fan of slapstick spoofs. I love "Airplane!" and the "Naked Gun" films, but it's not my favorite genre.

    Ironic, then, that I find most spoof movies enjoyable, at the very least, because they're all really, really stupid. There's more quality in "Airplane!" than, say, "Hot Shots!", but both films are enjoyable, because you have to do absolutely no thinking whatsoever. All you have to do is laugh a few times. And with the millions of jokes (okay, hundreds) per film, you're sure to find at least a handful of things worth laughing at.

    "National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1" is one of my favorite spoof flicks. Why? It's stupid, silly, funny, and one of the most enjoyable films available to see. Yeah, it's stupid, like I already said. But it's loads of fun, too. And I don't care if critics bashed it when it came out -- it's still a very fun movie.

    Everything gets lampooned in this: "Lethal Weapon" to "Die Hard" to "Silence of the Lambs" to "CHiPs." And, alongside "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"; "Austin Powers in Goldmember"; and "The Player," it has some of the most cameos/stars to date. Get this: Emilio Estevez, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Curry, Jon Lovitz, William Shatner, Denis Leary, Erik Estrada, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Bill Nunn, Kathy Ireland, Corey Feldman, J.T. Walsh, Paul Gleason, F. Murray Abraham, Bruce Willis, Phil Hartman (R.I.P.), Whoopi Goldberg, Charlie Sheen (Emilio's half-brother)...am I missing anyone? Mel Gibson, Danny Glover and Joe Pesci would have completed this cast. I wonder if they rejected cameos.

    Wes Luger (Jackson) has been assigned a new partner, the loose canon Jack Colt (Estevez), who lost his dog long ago and is now mentally unstable. Luger lost his partner (Goldberg), too, and the effects of the past often catch up with him, so far that he finds it impossible to fire a gun without shaking violently and spastic-like.

    General Mortars (Shatner) is planning a devious scheme of running drugs through a Girl Scout cookie-type company, and Colt and Luger try to thwart his plan and save the day before it's too late. Meanwhile, they come to appreciate each other -- while lampooning everything in sight.

    The most puzzling thing about "Loaded Weapon 1" is the fact that, if you look at most user comments on the Internet Movie Database, they're all quite positive. It has a low standing at 5.3 stars, yes, but the user reviews for the film are pretty decent. A lot of people found the film "funny for what it is." I do, too.

    Spoofing a spoof is kinda pathetic, I'll admit. "Lethal Weapon" always was more tongue-in-cheek comedy than anything else. Even as a hard action film it was always winking at the other films of its genre. "Wayne's World" isn't exactly a drama of epic proportions, either, come to think of it. Even "Basic Instinct" is a hard film to spoof, if you take a moment to reflect -- it's never exactly horribly serious. Just sleazy. (I won't ruin how "Loaded Weapon 1" pokes fun at the famous Sharon Stone interrogation scene.)

    Yet, in my honest opinion, "Loaded Weapon 1" does a pretty darn good job of spoofing everything in sight. Estevez is a good Riggs-type who pines for his lost dog (not a wife, mind you, but a dog). Jackson -- who's usually great -- is decent as the Murtaugh-type character, although he is shoved aside by the screenplay to make room for Estevez. (Whose brother was just as good in "Hot Shots!", although I think this is a funnier film.) Lovitz, hair bleached (impersonating Joe Pesci from the "Lethal Weapons"), comes across as an irritant sidekick who appears out of thin air only when the plot needs him -- which I suppose was the point. (Was "Loaded Weapon 1" assuming that Joe Pesci's Leo Getz character was an irritating co-star placed in the film as nothing more than an easy plot device? Probably.)

    And in one of the simplest -- but also one of the most effective -- scenes, we get the famous bathroom bomb sequence from "Lethal Weapon 2" told in an entirely fresh perspective. Here's how it goes: The door to Jackson's house is wide open. Estevez walks in and calls him. "I'm up here!" is the response. Estevez walks up the stairs, gets to the bathroom, opens the door, sees Jackson on the toilet and says, "What are you doing?" Safe to say, he's doing exactly what it looks like. His blunt reply is one of the highlights of the film. (Let's face it, that scene from "LW2" was destined to get poked fun at some time or another -- I'm just glad it got spoofed in this.)...more info

  • They Have Guns!
    "Loaded Weapon 1" is basically the same kind of movie as the "Naked Gun" series, only not as funny, making this just a mediocre comedy. Also because I have not seen the "Lethal Weapon" movies either. I'm not saying this isn't the least bit funny. It was actually pretty funny. Maybe because of Tim Curry's odd cameo. He's got a funny accent and he's eeeeeevil! "Jigsaw" is his name. Sargeant Jack Colt and Sargeant Wes Luger have to stop him from distributing Wilderness Girl Scout cookies that are really cocaine cookies, and he was after a microfilm that had the recipe on it from the 2 cops after they get it. The showdown ends up in the cookie factory. This film also has a very small cast, and that's about it for the whole plot and such. There's not much else that's left to tell. Good day, then....more info
  • Very good slapstick
    This is a VERY good spoof/slapstick movie. Like the Airplane and Naked Gun series, you'll see something new every time you watch it. This is a dead-on hit....more info
  • great
    funny movie with a allstar cast. this one is a rip off of man things like Lethal Weapon, Basic Instinct and basically Lethal Weapon. Whoopi is killed by Tim Curry and Samuel L. Jackson with his new ticking time bomb partner Emilio Estevez are on the case and it involves girl scout cookies. following an array of wacky characters like William Shatner, Phil Hartman, Corey Feldman, Denis Leary, Denise Lee Richards, Bill Nunn, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Charles Napier, Erik Estrada, Larry WilCox, Paul Gleeson, Jon Lovitz, Scotty from Star Trek, Kathy Ireland, J.T. Walsh, Charlie Sheen, F. Murray Abraham and a funny bit involving blowing up Bruce Willis' trailer home. wacky and fun...more info
