PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime
Incompetent police Detective Frank Drebin must foil an attempt to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II.
When Frank Drebin attends the baseball game, he goes to the toilet and meets a fat male and slapped him, was a reference to a Monty Python sketch where an obese male ate so much that he exploded. The obese male is wearing the exact same clothing and hairstyle like in the Monty Python sketch.
I've heard police work is dangerous.
Frank: It is. That's why I carry a big gun.
Jane: Aren't you afraid it might go off accidentally?
Frank: I used to have that problem.
Jane: What did you do about it?
Frank: I just think about baseball.
Even given that the movie is a satire of police ineptitude, it is unlikely absolutely no other cops would have been in on Nordberg's undercover operation and able to clear his name.
"In Case of Tornado........................... SOUTHWEST CORNER OF BASEMENT"
The scene with Nordberg's wife at the hospital is expanded to include to more dialogue and a different ending: as the group leaves the room Frank flips a couple switches on the wall, which he thinks are for the lights, not knowing that he has shut down Nordberg's life support system. As they walk down the hall after leaving the room, hospital staff rush by headed for Nordberg's room. Without looking where they are headed Frank comforts Wilma by saying, "just be glad you're not that guy's wife".
