In many respects this is a black counterpart to The Naked Gun, and very nearly as funny; the bounty of antimacho gags is both unexpected and refreshing.

Although, like all good satires, it is cheerfully willing to be offensive, it is almost completely incapable of being funny.

There's so much energy in this satire, that you can't help laughing at its bawdy charm. Clumsy, irreverent, adolescent, yes. And often very funny.
