SEE IT BEFORE THEY MAKE THE SEQUEL.
Cops Jack Colt and Wes Luger (Emilio Estevez, Samuel L. Jackson) team up to hunt down a general (William Shatner) who’s been smuggling cookies laced with cocaine. A comedy in the vein of Airplane! and The Naked Gun that draws a big, fat target on primarily the Lethal Weapon flicks, but also The Silence of the Lambs and Basic Instinct. Bruce Willis has an amusing cameo, but Shatner and Tim Curry are not as hilarious villains as one could hope for. The two leads are likable, but not terribly funny. Weak material, but you can do worse.
