Perfect scores? Absolutely! I would score it higher if I could. I laughed myself silly three nights in a row watching this and once when watching an early workprint. Everyone who watched this edit with me when I got home laughed so hard they cried. It's a perfect addition to the Naked Gun films. Two very enthusiastic thumbs up! Now...to watch it again because I just need more laughs on my life. Thank you, my friend. A boatload of bananas are on the way!

Franklin "Frank" Drebin, the fictional quirky cop from the Police Squad! television series and The Naked Gun movies played by Leslie Nielsen is a true classic creration...up there with Peter Seller's Cluseau....and what a hoot it is to have a fourth movie to enjoy the hellzapoppin antics.

The technicals are all good, and sure, the narrative is a smorgasbord, but that just adds to the intended mayhem...which you just have to sink yourself into and move allong with the river of jokes, puns, visual gags and so much more...

No nitpiks from moi...just shear unadulterated craziness all round...

We need to laugh more, and I prescribe this required medication to be taken thrice daily before meals (to prevent projectile ejection of food)...

SUPER!

This is like an early Christmas present - a fourth Naked Gun movie! As some of the other reviewers have pointed out the plot does jump around a bit given the nature of the base material but the jokes and one liners are brilliant and this edit does a great job in keeping the plot moving along whilst providing lots of laughs.

'We're sorry to bother you at such a time like this, Mrs. Twice. We would have come earlier, but your husband wasn't dead then'.

Police Squad was always a criminally (no pun intended) underrated series and to this very day, probably still is the case. I've always loved the Naked films and Airplane! and one can never get enough Leslie Nielsen. So when DonkeyKonga announced his 'Laugh and Let Die' project, I was absolutely excited! While the narrative is somewhat disjointed and convoluted, I think that's exactly what works about it. So much of the Naked Gun and Airplane's humour derives from a nonsensical and non-sequitur nature that this new edit acceptably fits into that category.

I think if you accept that, you'll have an absolute blast. Besides, I don't watch Leslie Nielsen comedies for the plot. I watch these films because I want to laugh my arse off. Laugh and Let Die successfully achieves that! While preserving the best humour of the show, DonkeyKonga has also found a way to inject a new visual gag into the edit as well. Very funny too! I think it's clever acknowledging the fact that the credits appear way past the beginning and the whole presentation feels like a gag itself.

Although, we never got a fourth Naked Gun film. I'm happy to say that DonkeyKonga has created something that fits nicely alongside the other films in the series. You won't be disappointed.

I highly recommend this edit!

Take a bow, DonkeyKonga.

A fun edit! A great idea to convert Police Squad! into a fourth Naked Gun, and having the episodes of the show be presented as a series of semi-concurrent cases Drebin is investigating is brilliant. Well done! I'd love if the plotlines fit together more smoothly, but there's only so much that can be done considering the source material. Lots of really funny moments (the gag with the extra title credits had me roaring) make this well worth a watch. Definitely recommended!
