It's great, almost on the same level as The Naked Gun movies.
My only complaint is that some of the jokes here I already saw at Naked Gun movies, so I would prefer if some of them could be removed or replaced by other scenes that were cut.

Other than that, I absolutely loved it

'We're sorry to bother you at such a time like this, Mrs. Twice. We would have come earlier, but your husband wasn't dead then'.

Police Squad was always a criminally (no pun intended) underrated series and to this very day, probably still is the case. I've always loved the Naked films and Airplane! and one can never get enough Leslie Nielsen. So when DonkeyKonga announced his 'Laugh and Let Die' project, I was absolutely excited! While the narrative is somewhat disjointed and convoluted, I think that's exactly what works about it. So much of the Naked Gun and Airplane's humour derives from a nonsensical and non-sequitur nature that this new edit acceptably fits into that category.

I think if you accept that, you'll have an absolute blast. Besides, I don't watch Leslie Nielsen comedies for the plot. I watch these films because I want to laugh my arse off. Laugh and Let Die successfully achieves that! While preserving the best humour of the show, DonkeyKonga has also found a way to inject a new visual gag into the edit as well. Very funny too! I think it's clever acknowledging the fact that the credits appear way past the beginning and the whole presentation feels like a gag itself.

Although, we never got a fourth Naked Gun film. I'm happy to say that DonkeyKonga has created something that fits nicely alongside the other films in the series. You won't be disappointed.

I highly recommend this edit!

Take a bow, DonkeyKonga.

A fun edit! A great idea to convert Police Squad! into a fourth Naked Gun, and having the episodes of the show be presented as a series of semi-concurrent cases Drebin is investigating is brilliant. Well done! I'd love if the plotlines fit together more smoothly, but there's only so much that can be done considering the source material. Lots of really funny moments (the gag with the extra title credits had me roaring) make this well worth a watch. Definitely recommended!

This is like an early Christmas present - a fourth Naked Gun movie! As some of the other reviewers have pointed out the plot does jump around a bit given the nature of the base material but the jokes and one liners are brilliant and this edit does a great job in keeping the plot moving along whilst providing lots of laughs.

As a lover of Leslie Nielsen (wink wink) and the Naked Gun movies, I was so pleased to see this edit was coming up, and now that I've seen it I'm really happy. The Naked Gun trilogy is such a staple of my childhood. My dad was a huge fan (he could be very cold), but aside from that he loved those movies. Taking these episodes and making them into a movie was a fun idea and well executed.

I think the narrative was slightly complicated but that's not Donkey's fault. These are fast paced gag-filled episodes and the plots are silly and fun to watch, so building a coherent movie narrative must have been challenging.

Honestly I just had a good-ole-fashioned great time watching it, and I'm going to add it to my list of keepers. Thanks for making something I never even knew I wanted!
