Paramount Presents

Most people smile at the mention mere of this show … there’s nothing healthier than an old fashioned laugh. Zucker, Zucker & Abrahams’ non-stop joke fest finds good non-malicious fun in movie spoofery. It’s populated by the same old pros that had to make the originals fly right, no matter how clunky they were. All hail Leslie Nielsen, Lloyd Bridges, Robert Stack and Peter Graves, the veterans of countless ‘keep a straight face and pretend it’s serious’ groaners. It’s a 40th Anniversary new restoration. Now somebody tell me: do I park in the red zone or the white zone? On Blu-ray from Paramount Presents.
