Review: Absolutely hilarious from beginning to end! The best troll comedy ever made! I believe Leslie Nielsen was a unique choice for this role. You won’t be able to stop laughing! You will probably be one of those people who’ll watch the 2 sequels in one night! Seriously I couldn’t swallow my snacks, I almost chewed! But enough said… Reviewing The Naked Gun is like reporting on a monologue by Joaquin Phoenix… You can’t, there are no words…
I am a lifetime movie addict and cinema is my passion. I’ve been a movie writer for 8 years. My goal is to teach people how to watch movies and how to appreciate them instead of hating them. Some gems are hidden out there but I’m here to show you them all!
