I Always Felt Loaded Weapon was an Underrated Comedy

The 90s was a fantastic time period for comedies.  When you look back, these are the years that brought us movies like Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, American Pie,  There’s Something About Mary, and a bunch of others.   This is the decade where the Farrelly brothers came to prominence and comedy began to shift.  You saw much less “stupid” humor and much more subtle, referential type humor.   Following these films, the year 2000 saw Scary Movie, 2003 we saw Old School and eventually comedies would evolve into the Judd Apatow and Todd Phillips blends you see now.

However, before the mid 90s you still had your slapstick, ridiculous comedies.  Case in point?  Hot Shots which was made in 1991.   The funny humor from Zucker Brothers directed movies like Airplane! still carried over.  Perhaps one of the last great films like this was National Lampoon’s Loaded Weapon, a spoof movie on Lethal Weapon.  I personally felt this film was highly underrated.   Don’t forget Samuel Jackson is in this movie.  This is well before he became known as an extreme yeller.  Plus his hair is amazing.  And don’t forget that Emilio Estevez did a more than admirable job at spoofing Mel Gibson.

Anyway, I just wanted to point out the fact that I thought this movie was way funner than it got credit for.  Here are some clips below to refresh your memory.
