10. 'The Naked Gun'
Not a lot of people remember the 1982 TV show Police Squad. The hysterical spoof of police procedural shows by the same team that made Airplane! was canceled after just six episodes and seemed destined for obscurity, but six years later they somehow managed to turn it into a movie. The plot revolves around a millionaire's plan to assassinate Queen Elizabeth II, but it's really just an excuse for a series of gags. Of all the movies that followed in the wake of Airplane, this is the one that came closest to capturing that same magic and spirit.
