20120118: [20120123][20160129 Edit]
While this movie had plenty of cheap laughs, it was nowhere near as good as The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad! (1988) or Airplane! (1980).

Veronique Ukrinsky, Angent 3.14 (Nicolette Sheridan)
Overall, I got enough laughs out of the movie to make it worth watching, but didn't like the movie as a whole.
