I had to see the movie a second time to catch the follow-up line.

CSB: My late brother had ALS, and that film was one of the last movies I took him to before he was confined to bed. When Neilsen delivered that line, I was laughing hard and looked over to see my brother was gasping for breath. I put his oxygen mask on for a moment or two. He caught his breath and waved off the mask, saying: "Jeeze, I can't believe he actually said that. That's the funniest line ever." Always wanted to meet Neilsen to thank him for that moment of pure hilarity for my brother. /CSB

You know what? That is a CSB. No disclaimer needed.

"There are people who can [play itstraight, like Liam* Nielsen], and they're not famous. You wouldn't know who they were**. But I know actors who can do it."

*That may very well be a better composite actor than humanity deserves
** But they're really into Wilco and Decemberists

Thirdly, as much as I dislike the idea of repeatedly striking an hilariously dead horse I know the perfect actor.

Jesus, at least this time it's the original creator hinting at the reboot. That's a change.

Still, I don't want anyone to replace Leslie Nielsen, this needs to be left alone.

That's some crackerjack proofreading if I've ever seen it.


I just noted on the Point Break remake page that on top of Red Dawn, Total Recall, Footloose and Carrie, they also want to remake Flatliners, Jumanji, The Rocketeer and Dirty Dancing.

We really need to go 5 years without a single remake. Not only do a lot of these movies fit where they're at now, I've seen them all, I want NEW shiat.

I started complaining that Hollywood was just remaking a bunch of shiat and that really they could go to the damn library and find thousands of stories worth of screen time. I used to think that was sound advice, but then we ended up getting shiat like Twilight and the upcoming Mortal Instruments - City of Bones

If you can watch the trailer for that one and NOT facepalm, you are a stronger man than I

I thought maybe he was saying that there was an actor out there who was relatively unknown named Liam Neilsen, so I checked IMDB. Nope, just morons on the interwebs...

Yeah, instead of a remake of Naked Gun or Airplane, you could just do something in the same style (if you can find a replacement for LN to carry it), but do it in a hospital setting, or politics, or a dozen other settings that are just as easy to write similar comedies against, but means you aren't retreading the same area for jokes, and won't be as harshly criticized if you fail to capture the original well enough.

Essentially a remake (of something popular/well known) is a way of cheaping out on the advertising (as you get the media to carry remakes as a "story" to rile up/interest fans of the original), but it means artistically you are almost guaranteeing failure and that even when a lot of people watch it, mostly they will give a negative opinion due to comparisons with the original.

SkylineRecords: Not to take away from the writing, because there are some great jokes in the Naked Gun series, but Leslie Nielsen IS the reason those movies were so damn funny. Well, the first one is hysterical, the other ones were funny enough.


I wasnt a fan of the second one. The villain felt like he was a real person who was transported to the Naked Gun world.

NO. Leslie Nielsen WAS the Naked Gun franchise.

This would be like when they tried to make Pink Panther movies without Peter Sellers.

Damn you "men" will biatch about anything.  Not everything in this world revolves around your opinions, as much as that is gonna shatter your world view.  The farked up part is that when you were kids, you got dumb movies like these.  You got remakes.  You got corny ass horror movies.  But every time someone dares to try and make one of these types of movies for someone other than you, here come the critics, the biatches, the constant complainers.  You wanna know the real reason these movies keep getting made, despite your incessant biatching?  Because most of you twats are way out of the demographic of actual movie attendees.  Or you just steal it online.  Next time, try just shutting the hell up for once in your miserable lives.  If you got to enjoy it as a child, or a young adult, then who the hell are any of you to deny the same experience to the generations younger than you.  Either that, or shut the fark up and start getting funding to make your own movies.  But nahhh, that would require effort and talent, when you can just biatch in every thread on fark.
