Vincent Canby, New York Times: Watching "Loaded Weapon 1" is like playing Trivial Pursuit with experts. It's exhausting. Read more

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly: A raucous parody of bodies-through-the-plate-glass-window action flicks, the movie has been made in a slavish but pedestrian imitation of the Zucker, Abrahams, and Zucker house style. Read more

James Berardinelli, ReelViews: This film is stale. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: It's hard to satirize a satire. That's what "National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1" wants to do, but the target proves elusive. This is a would-be comedy that's not as funny (nor as satirical) as the movies that inspired it. Read more

Rita Kempley, Washington Post: A buddy cop parody of the lowest possible caliber. Read more
