Brief Synopsis:
I absolutely adore Leslie Nielsen. I love the Naked Gun and Police Squad, although I feel the latter hasn't aged all that gracefully. The good parts are terrific, but jokes are re-used in each episode up to the point where you are annoyed and it feels lazy. So I aimed to fix that and effectively make a fourth Naked Gun movie instead.
Intention:
I made this edit out of my love for Leslie Nielsen, and to accomplish three things:
- Editing a comedy
- Making a TV-to-Movie edit

Special Thanks:
ArtisDead for making an excellent poster. You have truly outdone yourself. This is the new bar you've set for yourself.

Phase3 and WilliamRedRobin for test viewing this and giving some great feedback.
Release Information:
Blu-Ray
Cuts and Additions:
Changelist:

- The movie starts and ends with the final episode
- Inserted a visual gag when the poisoned victim is hallucinating based on feedback by the wonderful @Phase3
- Title credits changed to include the new title
- I took every episode and tried to make a coherent narrative as possible while having these casefiles happen semi-simultaniously.
- Removed episode 2 entirely for not being funny
- Remove all the cold opens, except for the last episode. We now find out about them as the main characters find out about them
- Remove every scene with the shoeshine boy that happens in each episode, as they are pacing killers.
- Remove every joke that's repeated too much, every joke is only done once, unless they cannot be cut
- Remove jokes that have been done in the movies, as this intended to be prequel to the Naked Gun trilogy
- Added one narration joke based on feedback by the great and magnificent WilliamRedRobin
- Inserted one little editor's joke for out fellow editors

Loved the original police academy and naked gun movies, so this was a treat to watch. There were a ton of hilarious gags used, especially the famous "Cover me!" bit, but I never felt especially compelled to watch the series.

This edit was the perfect way to still enjoy the iconic jokes.

The only complaint I have is at around 1:10:35, theres a cut where Leslie comes up with bruises/paint on him, before cutting back to normal. But this could just be me missing the joke from that scene too lol.

OMG! This was exactly what the doctor ordered for a laugh a minute riot! We laughed and laughed and laughed!

Thank you for bringing our favorite police squad back to life!

You are the best!

Ummm...there were some weird moments so we didn't give a perfect score.

Its been a while since I've watched a really good comedy movie for the first time and this edit was beautiful.
I watched the edit with my entire family who usually dislike newer movies (action scenes too fast and jokes are not that funny) but they really liked this one comedy was good and movie was at normal pace. I must really thank you DonkeyKonga for this amazing edit and I'll watch your other edits as well.

Straight from the files of Police Squad.

How did DonkeyKonga know that we all wanted another movie? This being the only way that is possible now.

We got high and watched this the other night. We laughed so hard we cried. I love it when something like that happens.

Thank you DonkeyKonga for bringing us ladies so much joy. It's not a perfect edit but it's a perfect experience.
