Leslie Nielsen died a few months ago, and I started trying to write a post about how great he was that ended up stalling out any posting since then. And then tonight I watched Naked Gun: From The Files Of Police Squad, and it shook me out of my insanity. And I'll say this about Naked Gun- it's very nearly the best of the kind of thing that it is. I'd recommend that you sit down with some good friends as soon as possible, pop in a good Leslie Nielsen movie, and pay close attention, because the best stuff isn't well telegraphed and it can pass you by if you aren't careful. Preferably Airplane!, Naked Gun I or II, or if you're lucky, the 6 episodes of Police Squad! that the Naked Gun Movies were based on. If you've seen (and liked) all of those, give Spy Hard or Wrongfully Accused a try. Don't watch anything that came out later than Wrongfully Accused. Yeah, the genre got saturated, and there are a lot of bad ones out there. But the reason that happened is because these couple of movies are truly great. And the fact that they stand out so far from the rest are a testament to the creative minds and enthusiasm that the writers and actors (especially Mr. Nielsen, RIP) put into making something zany that hadn't really been done before and gave so many people such a good laugh.
