Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Not quite up to Airplane! or Top Secret!, but there are still laughs aplenty."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"High spirits may be all that a film like this really needs."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"It would have been nothing without Leslie Nielsen, but this was one of the funniest slapstick comedies of the 1980s."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Nielsen in particular is superb, cracking his fašade for only the biggest of jokes."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Nielsen perfectly embodies Drebin with the kind of deadpan seriousness that's essential to making well-written one-liners and situations seem ten times as funny."
‑ Erik Childress, Apollo Guide
"The Naked Gun is crass, broad, irreverent, wacky fun -- and absolutely hilarious from beginning to end."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The film is as transparent as a third-grader with a water gun, and yet I would rather review a new film by Ingmar Bergman, for there, at least, would be themes to discuss and visual strategies to analyze."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Bawdy, dumb-humor classic spoofs '80s cop dramas."
‑ Heather Boerner, Common Sense Media
"The Naked Gun is a continuous stream of verbal and visual gags that come so fast, you don't have time to realize how bad/old/corny they are."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"One of the greatest comedies ever made. The laughs don't stop."
‑ Willie Waffle,
"The endlessly tasteless juvenilia should make you ashamed of laughing yourself into a stupor."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"The Naked Gun is still very funny more than 20 years later. Leslie Nielsen is awesome, and the gags are more hit than miss."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"...still a hilarious movie, and anyone with a funny bone in his body will probably find it amusing."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A comedy classic."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"Hi-larious. Shame about the sequels."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
