Loaded Weapon 1 (1993)

This spoof of the Lethal Weapon series was reasonably entertaining.

Sgt. Wes Luger (Samuel L. Jackson)

Netflix determined the movie for me as a 99% match. I decided to give the movie neither a thumbs up nor a thumbs down.

Instant Comments:
His monologue:
Nice weather? You think we're having... nice weather? I guess you didn't lose the only one that meant anything in your life. I guess you don't feel burned out by the human misery and despair perpetrated by the criminal vermin that infest every pore of this decaying city, forcing you to guzzle cheap wine and cheaper whiskey to dull the pain that shatters your heart, rips at your soul, and keeps your days forever gray. What flavor Icee you got today?

Miss Destiny Demeanor (Kathy Ireland)

Haha. The pile of inserts on the floor.
Smile. The ocean explodes.
Cameo by James Doohan.
Hahaha. "Worst of all he is gun happy." Colt raises his gun and asks, "Where do you get off saying that?"

Becker is literally laundering money. He's a parody of Leo Getz (Joe Pesci) - though Getz doesn't show up in the Lethal Weapon series until Lethal Weapon 2.
Haha. "Sounds violent. I hate violence!"
Parody of Basic Instinct.

Heh. His name tag reads "Wes Luger at age 12"

References Hot Shots.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Smile. Mentions the microfilm and the other guy says it's too late in the film for plot points. That's totally how it works in films. MacGuffin.
They both say "Sequel." [A sequel was never made]
