National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1
National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1 ★½ Loaded Weapon 1 1993 (PG-13)
Cop Jack Colt (Estevez) and partner Wes Luger (Jackson) attempt to recover a microfilm which contains a formula for turning cocaine into cookies. Essentially a sendup of the popular “Lethal Weapon” series, although other movies and themes make an appearance, well sort of. Short on plot and long on slapstick, but that's the whole point. Tired formula creates nostalgia for the granddaddy of them all, “Airplane.” Lots of cameos, including one from sibling spoof star Sheen. The magazine folded while the movie was in production, an ominous sign. 83m/C VHS, DVD . Emilio Estevez, Samuel L.
