Factual error: When Frank knocks out the Umpire and begins to change into his clothes, the umpire is wearing white underwear. All umpires wear black in case the seat of their pants rip so the game can continue.
9.7/10. The first of a great trilogy. Leslie Nielsen's comedic timing is perfect. George Kennedy, Priscilla Presley, and Ricardo Montalban were all great because they got the style of movie. Lt Frank Drebin is truly one of the funniest characters of all time. I would say this is what launched the idea of Angie Tribecca into the minds of Rashida Jones, Steve Carell and Nancy Carell. The show was a tribute to the genius of this comedic legend and the Zucker brothers and Abrahams team.
Ed: Frank, they're not here for you. Weird Al Yankovic is on the plane.
Trivia: The baseball blooper reel shows a ballplayer's head coming off when he crashes into a fence. This scene is a tribute to a quote from San Diego Padres announcer Jerry Coleman: "Winfield goes back to the wall. He hits his head on the wall - and it rolls off! It's rolling all the way back to second base! This is a terrible thing for the Padres."
